Since we last spoke on the subject of feeling somewhat overwhelmed, I have taken some time to put myself back together. Mr M challenged me to a game of Squash which energised my mind and body. We went to my brother's house for a lovely refreshing swim and I played "biting spiders" with my niece and nephew in the pool. I shopped to restock the pantry. I read over my assessment tasks and started to think about how to answer them, and then began typing them up. I started knitting a hoodie for the knitted babe (Miss C is sure taking her time in choosing a name) I worked with the teen to sort her stuff and assess what is going back into her room.
A little break to help put things back in perspective!
Thanks for all your lovely comments and support - they warmed my heart.
