We decided that we would get the fire pit going tonight. A dismantled wooden chicken coop became fuel rather than landfill. A bag of marshmallows and sticks! Time to sit around and reflect.
There's been a lot going on in the last few weeks and tonight tied up some loose ends. Deep breathing and renewing our batteries before a busy week of exams. It will be a week with it's fair share of stress but I've cancelled all my evening plans. No sports, no school meetings, just time spent in the home soothing frazzled nerves and helping with last minute revision.
Sometimes you need to de-clutter the mind, the house and the calendar and bring things back to basics. And sugary melting marshmallows helps!
