I’m feeling quiet at the moment. There’s nothing much I want to write about. I’m getting bored of reading gift idea reviews and Christmas crafts to do so I don’t want to add to the overflow of festive spirit exuding from the blogging world!
MG and DG have one more week at school. MG has just decided to make her friends Christmas cards so she set to with pens, crayons, glue, sequins, blank cards and envelopes. Not following anyone’s plans or ideas, not being told what to do… The carpet is covered in sequins. This year’s tree looks like Christmas has vomited over it! It’s all lovely: child-led and laid back.
Yesterday the carpet was also covered in Hama beads from where we got our bead box out and MG made her best friend a heart shaped coaster in pinks and purples. DG placed some beads randomly on a far-too-big board. I made a mouse and a turtle but didn’t keep them. We all sat on the floor together enjoying each other’s company.
Quiet is good at the moment. Next week there will be family, too much food, too many presents and even more mess. This week we can just take everything slowly. The presents are wrapped and under the tree, I’m not hosting so I don’t have to worry about the shopping. Time to enjoy the peace, time to try to keep the house a teeny bit tidy for a few more days, time to be quiet.
