I am SAD! (Corner of my home)

Well, that's the end of the holiday, two weeks with my children flew by. This morning after the boys had been dropped off to school and nursery I came home to a quite house and with a heavy heart I took down the Easter decorations. I thought I would share the photo just before dismantling the tree. If you recall the post when I first put up the tree, you will notice some change... Look at all the green leaves and the flowers, when I cut the branches down they where still in winter mode and over the two weeks they have shooted and flowered. Someone in our house pointed out that the branches did not know they where dead yet, a true enough comment but quite a stark reality! Also to come down is the children's birthday cards...
I love the colour they injected into the kitchen, but even I have to admit that it looks a whole lot tidier without them. Still tonight the boys can cut and glue with them until their hearts content before they hit the recycling box. Please note my all time favourite photo, the water babe picture, Yep! that's my youngest, it does not come out very well on the general picture.

So it is with sadness that this all goes away, I have to remember they joys of Easter, the new beginnings, the meaning of Easter and the precious time with my family.

Thats such a lovely way to display your birthday cards. I've never seen anyone do that. I super love it! I'm sure that you will get over your sadness at your boys' departure and fall into relaxing in the sun with your knitting and your sunglasses and your adult beverages. :D
