I’m spending most time at home looking after my sweet baby who’s growing up
fast and attracting almost all my
attention and care.
As I have been working almost all my adult life , now is the first time that I spend so much time at home (I’m on maternity leave) , without the worries of setting and achieving goals at work, keeping deadlines, dealing with lots of people and demands , but also feeling the self fulfillment that comes with realizing your goals and tasting the ‘fruit of your labours’.
I love my job and I always try to set new challenges for me and my students each year to make lessons more fruitful and attractive .
But of course, I also greatly enjoy this luxury of time spent at home , without having to rush to get to work in time and preparing for the next day.
Still, as I
am a person who loves and appreciates creativity and loves changes, I try to find some time to be creative and productive at home !
honest , these days I’m mostly thinking about
things I can make for the baby’s room and christening and I have so many
ideas that it is rather hard to make up my mind .
I’m on a brainstorming phase now , collecting ideas and information and I hope to finally decide what I will make and start working on it !
I’m sharing with you today give you some idea of my life these days .
We carved a
pumpkin on Halloween for the first time this year .
We don’t celebrate Halloween in Greece but as we live in a global village we are starting to borrow some elements from this Celtic tradition. I also made a spicy pumpkin soup which was very much to my taste!
You know I
love little vignettes around my home.
This one is inspired by woods in autumn and winter and forest creatures !!
I love it so much I think I’ll keep it for
Christmas and I will add some holy and ivy
and some ‘snow’.
Look at my little collection of tiny houses. I love them and I can’t resist buying one when I find them. Aren’t they cute?
I want to use some of them to make something for the baby’s room but I’m not sure yet, what this something will be ……
We went on a day trip to the mountain the other day .
The colours of the leaves were spectacular , the blue sky and the light were so bright that it felt like spring!
I love little escapes to Nature, to little picturesque villages with pretty little shops selling local produce ,
and handmade items and places where you can enjoy a cup of cappuccino and a sweet, breathe in the mountain air and feel relaxed and happy.
for now dear readers , I hope you are all well and have a good time at home and
at work !
Little babies grow so fast and I still fondly remember the times when mine were little. Enjoy your maternity leave to the fullest!

Κάποιες φορές , λόγω κούρασης ξεχνάω πόσο όμορφη και ξεχωριστή είναι αυτή η περίοδος που είσαι μαζί με το μωράκι που μεγαλώνει και συνδέεται μαζί σου κι εσύ με αυτό.
