Having them all to myself

IMG_3516
I love spending time with other people, with other families, with our extended family but there is nothing in the world I love more than just being us. After three days with my sister and her family (which was very lovely) the time immediately afterwards felt so precious. We didn't do anything special. It was cold and wet, so we had a drive with three sleeping children, a shop for some treats to eat and a whole bag of very reduced Easter craft sets (thanks Tesco!) and then back home for lunch, cozy cuddles on the sofa, the Gruffalo's child DVD, lots of colouring and sticking and glueing. Nothing complicated. But so full of warmth, love and closeness.

Just us. Just perfect.
