Now I have finished the chores associated with my 'simple' life such as poultry feeding and garden watering and am enjoying a break with a cup of peppermint tea and one of Grace's rock cakes she baked for the competition. Then this afternoon, it is back to town for Hope's violin lesson, drop the car off for a pre-registration check and home to cook dinner and bed.
I'm not complaining. Just letting you know that the rural life although it is idyllic most of the time, has its draw backs. If you want to or need to do anything, it is usually a long drive to do it. I love seeing my children learn their instruments and develop their sporting abilities. It brings me joy. The driving however I could live without. A 100km round trip each time we go to town gets a bit tedious sometimes. In the blink of an eye though, this stage of my life will be over and I will then be wishing back the times when my babies needed me. Car time is great for talking and thinking. I must be a glutton for punishment though because I am off on the weekend for a trip to Sydney so Tom can attend a workshop for his year 12 English class. It's an excuse to visit my sisters and to have a little taste of life in the city.
Does anyone else have crazy, hectic days? I'm sure everyone does.
