Getting away

My coincidence, or design (!), D and I are able to get away to our property in the country this weekend.  It's cold and wet, but we don't care.  We can't wait to get there and freeze our wet asses off!! 

We will freeze in the cold caravan but we don't care because we are going to curl up in bed together and watch a movie on D's tiny little E-Reader. 

We are going to be stomping around in the muddy ground, but we don't care because we have galoshes.

We are going to have to try to find wood in the dark when we arrive, but we don't care because we will use our new chainsaw.  And if we can't find dry wood, then we won't care because we will curl up in bed early and laugh and talk and have fun together.

It's cold and wet, but we don't care because it will probably mean we will be there by ourselves (without the other partners in the property being there with their 4 kids, 2 dogs, 6 quadbikes and sometimes grumpy demeanour).  It will just be the two of us in the peace and quiet surroundings of the middle of nowhere nature.

I can't wait.  I see this as being a good start back on the track of my life as I want it to be.  A good start out of the slump of not just this week, but the last two weeks.  A clean slate.  Fresh clean air to blow away the staleness and stagnant thoughts and to bring in calm, peaceful, positive new ones.  The true thoughts of my soul!

The two of us together in one of our favourite places in the world.  What bliss!


  1. Good for you! That's the spirit as we would say.

    Have a wonderful weekend just the two of you.

  2. This sounds wonderful. Have so much fun. You guys deserve it.

  3. Have fun...a clean slate wouldn't be bad.

  4. So happy you left me a comment on my blog so I could discover your blog! I've read back a few days and wanted to let you know I SO KNOW those roller coaster feelings of anticipation, hopefulness, sadness and acceptance ... I hope your little vacation refreshes and recharges you. This journey you are on can be the most challenging and the most empowering as you are probably understanding. It is like climbing a mountain and every step upwards requires you to recommit to the journey, to the process. My heart and my prayers are with you ... that you discover your way to motherhood however it may unfold!

    The struggle ... it is preparing your heart because it will be stretched wider than you could believe is possible.

    ♥ Lis

  5. I hope that went as well as (or even better than) you imagined and that you're doing okay.
