We are still (still!) in the process of building some extra space for our little family home – it’s an ongoing (never ending!?) work which is preoccupying most of us most of the day (for all of the year!).
It’s hard. It’s been going on for so long now, and so many hopes are pinned onto it that it’s really hard not to feel a bit desperate and frustrated sometimes. In so many ways we can’t move forward til it’s done.
I try, though, to concentrate on the positives, and to keep a sense of proportion (easier said than done), and to make our lives as beautiful as they can be within the contraints of circumstance. And it sometimes takes something as simple as a small candle to restore the balance between insanity and calm.
