I'm back at last from a truly relaxing three week holiday, camping in the beautiful village of West Runton in Norfolk. We have been so lucky to of had the best weather possible, it only rained on one day. The problem is I don't want to be home!!!... We have all grown accustom to the pleasures a holiday brings. I'm longing for real fresh air, lush green fields, the sea, wildlife and no clutter. I cant believe how relaxing this holiday has been for us all. Ella has loved every second of it and has already asked to go to the beach. In fact we were so loathed to leave that when we finished packing the tent away ( Oh my god I cant believe how much I bought, but more on that later.) We decided to head for the beach for one last afternoon of escapism. Now I hope its not just me who feels like this when they return from holiday, but since I have come home all I want to do is de clutter and organise. I loved the simplicity that came from camping, washing pots only once a day, very little tidying to be done and the most important... freedom of the outdoors. I am longing for the sea and the countryside. I don't like living in a town at the moment. I'm having to stop myself from going a little crazy.. I have a mad urge to throw away anything I don't really like including furniture, clothes and well pretty much anything. I have never experienced this before so I'm a little shocked by how I feel. I normally love coming home to all our creature comforts but something has changed. I suppose it has a little to do with the fact that my fantastic mum and dad will be moving to live in Norfolk next year but sadly there is no chance that we can move too (work etc all the usual boring stuff.) The other thing that is really bothering me is the fact that we don't have a garden only a courtyard. It is very pretty and we have filled it with all our favourite things but there simply just isn't room for Ella to play properly let alone have a swing etc or a vegetable patch. Playing outside is one thing that Ella loved the most, she was like a different little girl, here she is discovering the joys of a space hopper for the first time... pure pleasure!
Sorry this post is not on a lighter note but I really thought I should do one, plus I'm hoping by writing down how I feel it may help me to move on and get a little more positive. Bye for now, lets hope I will be back to my normal self soon... ha I know its bad because I didn't want to go to the car boot today. Now back to de cluttering.
Oh just remembered I will need to add 8 random things about me... sorry they will have to come another day:)
