Boy oh boy am I missing the boys.
They have been visiting Gran and John-John on the farm. I have been working and admittedly, swanning off to Auckland for Bianca’s book launch but, it has been a cold and empty casa with out them.
I arrive home and everything is exactly where I left it.
No little boy saying ”Go away Mama!” and then 10 seconds later flinging his arms around me, squeezing me close and squealing ” I love you soooooo much”.
No husband to discuss American Politics or the pros and cons of ” time out”, or indeed the rough day at work.
Working, writing and being someone’s mum is busy and I often LONG for solitude.
Recently, everything has taken a sharper, clearer focus.
And what have I discovered?
Love is all
Oh, and new shoes are pretty good.
