It started a few days ago for me, a little earlier for Mrs B. For the n’th day in a row the morning and breakfast shift passed with out incident. All happily eating their Shreddies in their own bowls while consuming their daily fix of Ben & Holly / Peppa Pig. All happy to say bye bye when we headed out the door to go to work with no histrionics or floods of tears. Added to this a team trip to B&Q to buy some plants (nowhere better on a cold Sunday morning) was undertaken with out prams or fuss.
We have turned a corner or at the very least reached the apex in the bend of this part of the adventure! The fact that the sun has returned and winter is fading out is also helping improve the mood of all.
For the last few days the team have been outside in the garden pottering about. Granted there has been a gargantuan power struggle over who exactly has control of the pink car but in the main all are as happy as can be. (I have no idea what is wrong with the identical red one but it is steadfastly ignored by all and sits in a quiet corner like a discarded character from Toy Story peering out of the shadows with its big melancholy eyes.)
I hate to even write down this for the fear of a vicious reprisal from those two best buddies “Sods Law” and “Too good to be true” but here goes. . . . . It is getting a little easier.
Of course there is every chance we will look back at this time, probably not too long from now, as the quiet before the real storm actually hit but for now we will enjoy the warmer weather and days outside.
