The halcyon days were, for me, the couple of years just before The Boy Child was born.
I have to go to New York; would you like to come?
I have to go to Hong Kong; would you like to come?
I have a meeting in Singapore: shall we fit it into a round-the-world trip?
This week, The Brainy One is in the not so exotic location of the Home Counties.
And when he comes home, he will ask me the same question he always asks after a trip.
Did you miss me?
And I will reply, "no, not really."
Life here for me and The Boy Child stays the same. Our routine goes on.
Here's a snapshot of my last couple of days:
~ the laundry ~
~ the ironing ~
~ scone baking ~
~ dog walking ~
~ bed changing ~
~ weeding ~
~ taking The Boy Child out for supper ~
~ and doing homework while we were there ~
~ put TBC's bedroom back together after the decorating was finished ~
~ made a gazillion cups of tea for the decorator ~
~ time for scrapbooking ~
~ time for Project Life ~
~ time for me ~
