Its half term, and Little Miss is not at her chair colouring, sticking, drawing, doing.
The Dinosaurs are quiet - not a roar to be heard
And there are no gravity defying creations being built....
Its half term, and I am working, unable to book any extra days off this week.
So the little people are with their Grandma's until Thursday evening. Bags have been packed, Eeyore (little man's special huggle) is off on his travels again.
I know deep down they will be having a riot of fun, that the Grandma's between them will probably do things with them that I wouldn't normally do (ruining them for starters).
They are off to the Town Hall tomorrow, a special reward for visiting several museum events through last year - they've got a reward for being time travellers.
G's mum goes everywhere by bus and always takes them for lunch in the library, exciting when you are only 8 & 5.
M&D are in the country, big garden and 2 minutes from the farm. They go down during the holidays for a peek at the tractors & new baby animals.
I should be enjoying the peace and quiet, but I have to admit, I am missing my Little People. I miss the musings and building creations of an 8 year old's mind, and the constant stream of huggles and chatter from Little Miss. I would even go as far to say, that I am almost missing their scrating (but not quite).
I want them home, with me, because it isn't home without them.
Roll on Friday - (when I'm sure by tea time, I'll be wanting to send them back to Grandma's!)
Love Lydia xx
