Sometimes it’s good to have some quiet, reflective time in your life, to take stock and re-charge. This past week has seen me recovering from an operation, nothing too serious thankfully, but any procedure and stay in hospital is stressful for all concerned.
It’s not until you are your own bed/sofa and the drugs begin to wear off, that you have time to reflect on what you really love about being at home. A comfy bed and clean sheets, a squashy sofa filled with needy pets and comforting blankets, a real coal fire and relaxing scented candles, home cooked simple food and of course friends and family rallying round with love and support – what more does anyone need.
January is a hard month for many reasons, finances are tight and the weather can be harsh and while I don’t recommend a stay in hospital as a way of slowing down and appreciating the simple things that make life worth living, perhaps it’s a time to stay at home, light a fire and plan exciting things for the months ahead.
Happy January everyone x
