How is it nearly the end of March already? It seems like the older I get the quicker the years fly by. Wasn't it just Christmas?

This weekend has been a mixed bag. Anthony went away for a 'lads weekend' for his friends birthday. When he was in the Army I was so use to him being away all the time that it was normal but since he left the military back in 2010 I've gotten so use to him being home all the time. He's there when I wake up in the morning and by my side when I go to sleep at night. I love that. He left yesterday morning and my day was so occupied with three children that I didn't have two minutes to myself but once all of them were asleep and I was lying there watching the television I really missed him. It's silly really, he was only gone for one night but I guess the heart wants what it wants :)

I was so excited about him coming home this afternoon. It was like I was eighteen again and waiting for him to come home from camp for the weekend.

{The kids and I sent him this photo this morning.. Apparently it made him homesick. Aww!}

James was testing me this weekend. I think it was the fact that he knew that his Dad was gone overnight so he wanted to see how far he could push me. It's not very often that he's like that so it was a bit of a shock to my system but we survived and I learnt a few parenting lessons along the way. 

We kept ourselves busy in the garden this afternoon trying to entertain ourselves for the last hour. 

And now everyone is home and tucked up in bed.. Which is where I'm heading, a weekend alone with three kids makes you appreciate your bed!
