Time

It's March, and this is my first post for 2014. Ridiculous. My plea to The Year has clearly not been heard.

As always, a lot has happened since I last wrote. I'm now feeding my "newborn" kumara mash and pears - writing it feels as weird as doing it, as I honestly feel like we brought her home from the hospital yesterday. My "little" boy now tells me stories, asks questions, makes demands and is losing his baby chub thanks to all the running, jumping and dancing he does each day.

I'm just trying to take it all in as this lovely life I'm in just keeps galloping on. I try to go with it as I'm scared that if I pull on the reins too hard, I'll fall off. I'll admit I've taken less photos this year than last, but that's because I'm making a conscious effort to try and fill my memory, instead of my memory stick, with images of my little two. This, at least, is helping me to live more in the moment!

I guess all parents feel like this in one way or another, don't we? Time, time, time - a blessing and enemy in equal measure - and somewhat of a recurring theme on this blog lately! I saw this incredible post the other day about advice for your 30's, and it has made me think it's time to re-evaluate my priorities and set some goals for this decade. More on this later though.

The Year (traitor!) does nothing to ease this sense of life-without-pause, as the leaves start to change and the air grows cooler to remind me it's now many months since Christmas. Soon I'll be shrugging my sun-kissed shoulders into an autumnal cardy, and sunny walks to the park will be replaced with rainy-day arts & crafts sessions.

Anyway - please tell me I'm not the only one that feels this way? More importantly, how was your summer and what are you looking forward to with the change in season?

Until next time, tick tock tick tock...
