Corner View: Noticing (late)

My absent minded professor has been away these last two weeks, lost in a conference of maths and logic. He was away for my first art fair, fathers day, our anniversary and my job offer (teaching history). In some way it feels like its been years and not just a few weeks. It is terrible to say that it takes him being away to make me realise how much he means to me... but I suppose in the whirr of life with smalls it is easy to get caught up in the to do list of every day, every week...perhaps do a little too much nagging etc.  Having him gone makes me notice .. notice how much he means to me, to us all, the children really miss him. I realise just how much he helps me keep my pace, makes me laugh and supports me through phases of second guessing myself which I so appreciate. 
I am so thankful for having him in my life. Silly coffee machine ruler, fellow radio addict, foodie, 
travel lover, planner and love.
The whole island feels different without him. Am so glad he will be returning next week. 


  1. What a beautiful, beautiful post! I feel very much this way when MY absent-minded professor is away, too! :)

    Happy weekend! xo Gigi

  2. This is so sweet and true! My Mr. is away a lot, not for many nights but still it may be some nights at a week and I miss him so much as well.
    Sometimes I visit my best friend in Cologne when he's away for longer, there I don't miss him that much and last time the kids and I went to Austria and he followed for the weekend.

    I think it's easier if I'm not at home, here everything reminds me of him... one, two nights are OK but longer??

    So I am with you and I cand understand this post very well.

    Have a great weekend,


  3. This time it was for over two weeks and it does really feel long. Hopefully home coming will feel that much sweeter. A small trip away sounds like just the ticket. Thanks No, I think I will try that next time!

  4. Absolutely charming! The text, the photos...

  5. Re-noticing... This sounds familiar,that feeling, though I love hearing you tell your version of it :^)
    Enjoy your weekend Juniper

  6. Isn't that a nice feeling? Kind of a feeling of contentment along with your missing him and not being content without him. Take care, I hope the time goes by quickly.


Thank you for taking the time to leave a comment, I always enjoy reading them.
