September is such a contradiction for me; the excitement of getting back to work coupled with sadness at the end of summer.
Do you feel the same?
We have had such a lovely summer this year. Endless days filled with elaborate games and worlds, invented and inhabited by the children. There were our summer stalwarts of Just So and Giffords and even a holiday. There was plenty of time spent in the struggle of being at the computer not really getting work done and not being with the children. And there was decorating. A lesson learned: school holidays and decorating don’t mix.
But autumn holds so many wonderful things. Betsy started school and she loves it. I finally have time to put back all of the things we moved out for the decorating (I’m kidding myself here, right?). Blogtacular 2016 is on sale and we’re holding a fun event in October – honestly, I am never more happy than when I’m with the Blogtacular crowd. There are some really exciting and challenging projects emerging that I can’t wait to get my teeth into. Not to mention autumn food – my absolute favourite!
And there’s my dichotomy, sadness at what is passing and excitement for what is to come. How about you?
