Swimming in 21 degrees!
So here I am, sitting shivering in the office with the sun streaming down outside and wondering exactly what this is all about (where's MY holiday?), when I get a text from my Mum: "girls just swum in the pool - 21 degrees - now enjoying hot chocolate".
Yes, our family hit another milestone this week, and my parents took my girls to Spain for a week - without me! I was gutted of course, but it did mean that I could crack on in the office and spend all week with them next week without an ounce of guilt.
It is rather strange being in the house without them, but at the same time they were SO excited about going they didn't doubt it was for their benefit and not mine.
And that is exactly how it should be. I, and the rest of the team, work EXTREMELY hard and do a lot of juggling - but it's really worth it. Generally, in the holidays, we get to decide when we work and when we spend time with the family. We LOVE our job, but family comes first. That's what Puddle Ducks is all about.
So please - if all our phones are on answerphone during the next week or so - please bear with us. We do still love you!
As my girls get older, I get reminded time and again, that often their needs are not that great - I just need to be there when they need me - and get out the way when they don't!
And to be honest, this week I think I would rather sit in the sunny garden with a cup of tea than be dragged into a 21 degree pool by an excited eight year old!
So we are all happy. That's life but swimmingly...
