1) I hugged my children just a little bit tighter. My thoughts and prayers are overseas today.
2) I was sad last night, and the kids were acting up big style. After a bit of a blow-out, when I finally managed to get through to the kids that they were making life so much harder for me, they suddenly flipped from being horrid* to being positively angelic.
Eventually, A asked if there was anything else he could do to help. I replied that there was one thing which would make me feel a bit happier. He thought for a moment, then came running over and gave me a huge big cuddle. M joined in for a big group hug… “you’re not on your own Mummy, you’ve got us.”.
3) A hot bath, at the end of a long day.
* There was a little girl, who had a little curl, right in the middle of her forehead. When she was good, she was very very good. But when she was bad, she was horrid!!
