With memories of festive lie ins, still so fresh
Rain and wind pounding the house
It is so hard to leave this
warm, cosy nest.

Up and bed made
cheery quilt brings smiles
and much needed colour
on such a dark, damp day.

Peeking out the window
a sodden World awaits
bare trees swaying
to the rhythm
of the wind.

The boys bed holds his treasures
and Mamas heart delights
that handmade Nemo
peeks out.

And coffee in a dotty mug
bright splash of happiness
enough to lift the spirits.

Good Morning x

Good morning lovely! It was so very hard to get up this morning, first day back at school and all that. Lovely way to ease back into it though, seeing all those precious things about you.

It's been awhile since I read a blogpost this lovely. It speaks to all the mamas getting up, starting their day...leaving that nest indeed! It's hard to summon the energy for what I know will be the runaway train of our day. But my kids will drag their handmades behind them when they get out of bed, my coffee will be in my favourite mug (I've had it for almost 20 years!), and the day will begin. Thanks so much.
