We're past the halfway point in the school holidays here and I'm feeling a little burnt out. In a good way mostly. Our days are full of summer fun, bike rides, swimming, ice creams and staying up late, but I've been flying solo quite a bit with a husband who's been travelling a lot this past month. I've managed to squeeze in a bit of creative time this past week (at the expense of clean floors, I hasten to add) because I find that even a small dose of downtime does wonders for my sanity and helps me to unwind.
Short, sweet and satisfying projects this week include 2 new cushions for my sofa. I realized that our existing cushions were over 10 years old and in dire need of changing. Linen, thrifted doilies and buttons are a winning combination.
Then I whipped up a little rice bag for my neighbour who's been suffering from headaches recently. My children love these when they're poorly. Perfect for aching limbs or upset tummies.
I'll be taking a blog break for a few weeks - time to concentrate on my little family for a while. Happy summer holidays all!
