Why teach others when you can teach yourself?

Sometimes you blink and when you open your eyes you are in a different place from where you expected to be. That's where I am right now. I'd actually rather not be right here but I've learned lots along the way. Most importantly to be patient. 

Things won't always go in accordance with my time scale. There is a reason, I just don't know what it is yet. So I'm living in the moment and enjoying the now.

I've been in the garden splitting perennials.The daffs are in full bloom and the forget-me-nots are flowering.

I caught sight of a sheep after it had just given birth the other day,a sight that really lifts the spirits.It's a lovely time of year.

My daughter left for London early this morning to watched 'Wicked' at the London Apollo theatre and visit the Science museum.

My son went off to work- hopefully he won't be sent home today because he has a cold and might give it to someone(We rarely do ill in this house- so that went down like a ton of lead)

and my youngest is asleep on the sofa, having been up all night AGAIN.

I have sheets of music on the table as I'm singing in a music festival tonight and I have a book to read about the last Chinese Empress. so today is 'Home ed yourself day'. It will be my son's turn later at some unearthly time of night.It takes all sorts!

  1. I like the concept of 'home ed yourself'. I hadn't realised that this was the name for what I am doing! It makes perfect sense: model the desired behaviour even if no one else is in the room.
