Snap it : 'Far Away'
I wish I was enjoying my retirement years! Because that is probably when we could cash everything in, sell up and move to the beach...far, far away! But I am only 38 and retirement is so far, far, far away!!
I just want to be in peace and quiet and not know what time it is and have nothing to do all day so I can let my mind wander......
But I can't.
I have to work.
Like everyone else.
But the working week is too long. The working day is too long. And I go home so tired.
Look, I enjoy what I do.....I work in Early Childhood, looking after 12 little babies under the age of 2 with 2 other staff members.....but my goodness.....its a little exhausting on some days! Some fun days, but some exhausting days! I do not stop! I admire what the mums of the world do!!
As I write this I am on my much needed lunch break.....its been a long day! So I'm a little cranky, sorry. Okay, deep breath.....
On the weekend I finally hung up some canvas prints of our little trip to Venice last year! I put them on the wall in our bathroom and every time I have a shower, I just gaze at them.....
I can't believe that we had the chance to visit Venice! It was amazing! A little piece of wonderment....
Far, far away.......

Maybe being 38 and working isn't all that bad. You get to go to Venice.
Seriously, I hear you. I am always tired and therefor cranky. But seeing beautiful photos like the one you posted today of the lighthouse really cheers me up. Thanks.

Great photo of Venice, what a great trip that must have been. Every time you feel tired and cranky just think about those prints in your bathroom and how much you enjoyed yourself.

I know.... I have to think about all the positives and what I get the chance to do! And what other holidays I can plan for!
But thankyou for your lovely comments about my photo....words like that cheers me up! Ta! x

I know we have to be aware of how long we are in the shower for, but my 2 showers a day are getting longer and longer as I daydream and get inspired by those photos! It does work....I feel lots better afterwards! x

Both such lovely photos, Love the blue in the first one & the Venice photo is beautiful. Such great memories, I'm sure.
I can absolutely understand how working with 12 x under 2's can wear you out!!
