The best time of our day, the Captain and I, is after we’ve finally put the kids to bed.
Then silence ensues.
That ever elusive stillness suddenly engulfs our mind, our home.
It is so rewarding. It is so good. I don’t even want to turn on the music less it will disturb the silence.
I find it so hard to say goodbye to our peaceful evenings so I end up staying up too late.
Here are some of the things I look forward to at night.
Coffee without interruption.
Chocolate which cures most moods.
Writing with ease.
Reading cook books.
Baking without anyone fighting for the bowl or the mixer.
Putting my feet up.
Wine and cheese with the Captain.
Praying without distractions.
