We Are Officially In Wind Down Mode

Pin It
It's that time of the year when everyone is getting a little tired and cranky. The kids are so done with school - not officially yet, but mentally they have checked out. The husband is spent and well quite frankly I am knackered.

Its a crazy time where finding five minutes to sit down and quietly enjoy a cuppa is almost akin to finding a chest of unmarked hundred dollar bills buried in your back yard.... almost.

In all the rush and madness I am trying to remember to just slow down, take time out to enjoy the quieter moments for what they are. One of life's simple little pleasures.

Friday afternoon pre-dinner drinks down by the lake gave the kids a chance to climb trees, chase ducks and well just be boys. It gave my husband and I the chance to just sit, sip and breathe.

Don't forget to take a little time out from all the Christmas craziness to just enjoy time with your family. Give them some extra hugs and tell them you love them. Life is so precious, and sometimes way too fragile and sometimes we need to remember just how blessed we are.

In loving memory of those beautiful children and teachers who's lives were tragically and horrifically cut short in the US on Friday. To those poor families, you are in our thoughts and in our prayers.










Have you gotten lost in the crazy time that is the build up to Christmas or have you taking time out to just enjoy the quiet moments?
