Spring Has Sprung

Welcome to Spring!

With the change of season comes a new look for my blog!  You like?

It feels like forever since I've checked in, but so much has happened in the last month or so! I have a new job, and I'm loving it!  It's in retail, in a big shop that sells beautiful things - linen, home decor, pretty gifts and table ware.

Yes it's heavenly! I'm doing 3 shifts a week and it's a perfect fit. Having time at home has shown me how much I was struggling working full time.  My priorities have definitely changed.  I have the time now to focus on the important things and I am a much calmer person.  Or so the kids tell me!

Football season has finished for the two little ones, and we hope to look into Athletics for the summer months. Dancing and musicals continue, the Eisteddfod is right around the corner, and school activities are keeping us busy.

I love this time of year.  Once September begins, it is only a sleigh ride into Christmas! And you know how I feel about that -

 Happy Happy Happy!

The weather is glorious right now, it's warm outside and I've been sitting on the deck every morning, soaking it in.  My head is clear and my heart is happy. 

It's a good place to be.

Oooh I adore the new look Michelle.
Here in Vic we had about 4 glorious 'Spring-Like' days, and then on the 1st actual day of spring, it started raining again! It's Sooo cold today! GAH!
I think you should send some spring down here for me! ;-)

It's so wonderful to hear how contented you now feel. That is so important when you have a family to consider as well as yourself. Great news about your new job and the hours which sound just right.
Spring has sprung here in Perth as well although fortunately still a few showers hanging around now and then.
Me, being a lover of cool weather, am not looking forward to summer and I always wish Christmas was in July. Forlorn hope but it would be much more enjoyable in the cooler weather. Must be my ancestors talking there who all came from much cooler climes.

I'm so proud of you Michelle for making a positive change for your life and that of your family. It takes a big leap of faith to give up a full-time paying job. I'm glad you've found happiness.
