It’s oh so still.
Elisabeth has spent the last two (yes, two!) nights at my mother and father in law and the house has been much too quiet! I have enjoyed having some time to myself, especially my two lazy mornings with book/ipad and lots of cups of tea, and spending some much needed time with my husband, but I have missed her terribly. Last night I almost jumped in the car to go and pick her up just so I could give her a hug and read her bedtime stories. But I didn’t. Instead I slept snuggling a pair of her pyjamas, I know it’s a bit sad but I wanted to hold her close and she had taken all her teddy bears with her so what was I supposed to do 🙂
On Saturday night we went out for a meal in a local pub, and even though the food was disappointing, the company wasn’t and we had a great time. Yesterday we went shopping for some new clothes for me, after almost two years of wearing practical clothes I felt the need for something pretty. This isn’t as easy as it sounds when you are 6ft tall and you live in a country where the average woman is 8 (yes, 8!) inches shorter than you are. It was a success though, I came away with 3 new tops, which is 3 more than I was expecting. We also picked up some steak for dinner.
In the afternoon I managed to tidy up our office so you can actually get through the door and find the computer, and I sorted out Elisabeth’s wardrobe and packed up all the clothes that don’t fit her anymore. I phoned my sister and my dad whilst my husband cooked our scrummy steak dinner and felt utterly relaxed.
All in all it was a great and much needed weekend of quietness, but I am very restless this morning and can’t wait to go pick her up. It’s much too quiet around here.
