A thought for the long weekend.

In my part of the world it is a long weekend. That means that Monday is a public holiday. That means that I get to be with my family for an extra day. Yah!

Usually we go away, but due to different circumstances we decided it best to stay home.

Below are some of the things I hope to do with my bunch:

Forget the ‘to do list’ for a moment and go on an adventure – even one that takes only a few hours.

Forget the ‘to do list’ for a moment and exercise in some way – a form of exercise that we usually don’t do.

Forget the ‘to do list’ for a moment and have a family ‘tea party’  – or hot chocolate or whatever, just sit down together.

Forget the ‘to do list’ for a moment and play something – searching the cupboard for a board game that hasn’t been played for ages!

Forget the ‘to do list’ for a moment and spontaneously do something kind.

Forget the ‘to do list’ for a moment and sit and ‘be’ for a while.

Look at the ‘to do list’ together and work on that project as a family.

May you too have a blessed long weekend, doing some things that you usually don’t do.
Variety is the spice of life!

Editor’s (the man of the house) note : we need to print this off and put it on the fridge as a reminder over the weekend!
