There is just something so nice about being home and back with my family. I don't get to come home often enough and I always forget how amazing it is to be back here. It's something I really took for granted when I was living at home, something I will never do again. Today I didn't really do much, just took it easy. I emptied the house of all feathers, beads, fabric and other artsy bits for the costumes and then soaked in our homey atmosphere at every moment possible. Enjoying the little things is what makes coming back home so special for me.
In the afternoon I sat outside in the grass with my cup of coffee and notebook whilst the sun was slowly dipping behind the mountains that surround us in this little valley, speading golden honey colours across the sky. I was hoping to jot some notes down with my coffee but I ended up 'people watching' both my dad and brother Tiggy go about their business chopping up bits of wood for the outdoor fire whilst my little sister Ellie trudged around the garden being cute as ever. She was wearing her red converse with pulled up white socks, tiny frilly dusty pink shorts and her multi-coloured hippy jacket that makes me want to die with an adorable overload every time. She was chasing after the chickens for a cuddle. Too much cute for a three year old.
I've spent the last few hours of the night having one of our many DMC's with Katie via Whatsapp (come back from Budapest NOW, we miss you!) dreaming of future wishes, plans and being our general mushy selves when we get going lol whilst watching the best kinds of films with Alex - HORRORS! We're now on an old favourite of ours - The Hills Have Eyes. Alex is currently munching on what he calls 'Brenner', breakfast-dinner. His choice tonight being cheerios. In between blogging this post I've been taking notes down in my new Realm Costume notebook and thinking of re evaluating my resolutions I made this year. Another blog post for that one I think! I'm off to get stuck in to the gruesome hillbilly massacre..Goodnight!
