Silver linings

There is always something peaceful about a Sunday night… The calm before the storm!

The house is tidy, surfaces cleared, the table laid for breakfast, pilates mat laid out for the morning.. lists written and plans for the day laid down…

All that’s left to do for the day is write this blog, write my journal and fall to sleep…

It’s been a wonderful weekend with my Dad… It’s so good to see him relaxed. It’s good to have him as Dad…. ready to listen, provide perspective and good advice…. I realize this in this moment… We have talked a lot this weekend… something that we haven’t really had much opportunity to do in recent years…

Mum would say we were whispering about her… Mum would interrupt as she didn’t understand what we were saying…

It’s good to have my Dad back…

It’s sad to have lost my Mum…

It’s sad to have lost my Mum..

It’s good to have my Dad Back…

Out of any sad or bad situation, there is always something good.

For every cloud, there is always a silver lining… and I will focus on the silver lining….

There were a lot of clouds this weekend! Very rainy ones… so while we couldn’t watch the boys play football or rugby due to the rain, we found other things to do… Going deep under ground – as far down as high as the Tour Eiffel – and learning the history of the mining revolution, baking brownies, making flap jacks, letting Dad experience soft play on a wet Sunday… ! And of course, a lovely family roast dinner…

So the Sunday night calm, before the storms of Monday…

I am ready for you… !

every cloud
