I love a lazy Sunday at home- it's a special time of the week that I like to keep for family and time with Ben. The weekdays seem to fly by and Friday and Saturday nights often pass in a blur of shenanigans. It almost feels like Sunday is the day to step back, take a breath and recoup yourself.
On Saturday my Grandpa passed away, so we ended up having quite a somber weekend at home together. We both took some time out to just be with each other and chat about our memories together. My Pa loved his port, so we made a special trip out to buy his favourite brand and spent Sunday having a few glasses in his honour. We drank a few, chatted, laughed and cried.
I go into self protection mode in times like this too. Apart from cuddles and ports, I spent the day in PJs, read my favourite book, we made home made pizzas, I put a treatment in my hair and a mud mask on my face. Even Neo could tell it was important to have a quiet day, she just sat on her mat and played with her toys. Somehow, small creature comforts like this make for the best lazy Sundays and help a sick heart heal as well.
So this is not the post I intended this week. But I figured it might be a nice change to see something closer to home rather than us out on the town.
That's it for me this week folks. No makeup, pjs and hanging out at home. Now go give your grandpa a hug for me.
