I work every Wednesday so yesterday was my first day out of the house in 4 days. And when I was leaving work I got this great sense of excitement in knowing that we were going back to our home.
For me this is definitely a different feeling. Pre-Paddy I was always at work. And when the weekends came I would always plan something to get me out of the house. I have never felt a real connection to any house that we have lived in.
I don't know whether it is Paddy - or the sheer effort I have to go through to go anywhere these days - but the realisation has just hit me that I am happiest at home. Rhonda at Down to Earth always talks about this but in the past it has been a foreign concept to me. Now I think I am starting to get it.
Now I am eager to create the homely vibe in my house - crochet rugs over the couch, the smell of food cooking, photos of things we love surrounding us, an inspiring sewing room.
I think the nesting that I didn't experience in my pregnancy has just hit me!
This feels good.....
