Joy vs drudgery

It seems in the last few weeks life has been a little too much walking through syrup and not enough drizzling it on pancakes. We have gone from having a toddler with a broken arm to a house full of colds, followed by me having a badly sprained ankle and back to the colds, this time accompanied by a lovely dose of fever.

Keeping my head above water has been as much as I can do. Feeling tired as become normal and each week I have got to Friday, with lots of reasons that we have done very little and a hope that the next will be better. It occurred to me this week that the drudgery of life has been overtaking the joy of like and I desperately need this to change……

….but this week is half term and it is going to be about getting the balance back between joy and drudgery, about making sure that the former wins over the latter. Yesterday involved a walk in the sun, a trip to the theatre and an ice cream on one of the coldest days of the year just because.

I think that, perhaps, joy may be winning already.
