Winter, winter, winter…

January is upon us once again.  It would have been nice to spend it in a warm log cabin in the woods, knitting by the fireside and sipping earl grey tea, but it was not to be.

Instead I’m working part time to help our household.  I remember the years spent  completely at home, taking care of my family when the children were young.

Now my youngest is twenty!  Where has the time gone?

In the meantime, I have a new found compassion for the woman in the workforce, the single mothers etc. that have to bear such  financial burdens everyday.
