We've been away and back again, and I'm settling back in to the routine of every day. Travelling is one of my very favourite things, and although a lot of people shudder at the thought of long haul flights with small children I love it, and find it in so many ways easier than being at home.
The children were troopers, and we had a fantastic time. The previous long-distance trips we had done since having children were with a two year old, a two and a half year old, and a three year old and a baby. Travelling with a three year old and a six year old is fabulous, so much easier and so much fun. And it is wonderful to have time together and out of the usual routine. We've been back two weeks now, and the suitcases are unpacked but I feel like I'm still mentally unpacking the journey and the things we saw and did and learned, and the ideas I had as a result. After time away from the sewing machine and the house I'm feeling the urge to clean and declutter and organise and make and cook. Proper posts about all that coming soon.
