Space not script

Isn't it amazing how when you cut back on script (planned, directed activities), and create space, children seem to engage in so much more creative play?

I've always believed in this, but find it important to keep reminding myself right now when I keep unscripting life because I feel so tired.

I've been so neglectful of so many things of late - interests, friends, causes etc. I feel bad about it. I met with a community group this evening to help plan a Christmas party and spring ceilidh. That was good. A couple of people signed my parliamentary petition too. That was also good.
