So the house is now my own, everyone is back at school or work or in Hobart getting ready to start uni.
With my new found freedom I used my time to clean out the chook house yesterday, it's been on my to do list for a while now.
There is a new empty garden bed down near the chook yard so I put all the old straw and manure on there and then gave it a good water.
After months of having an overly stuffed house I am revelling in having more space.
I quickly moved my sewing things back into the boys room after Andy left so that my bedroom can be a sanctuary again instead of the place for everything that didn't fit anywhere else.
I feel as though my new year is just beginning, the summer holidays were so long, lovely, lazy and relaxing but I am ready to get into the business time of the year now, write some lists, cross things off and on to the next project.
We are not in autumn yet but I have some autumn, get ready for the winter thoughts happening.
How about you?
