The fire crackles and pops washing the room in comforting warmth.

The children are all tucked away in their beds, with full bellies and books that were read.

Now is that time of night, where everything slows down and relaxation can finally be found.

A long hot bath, perhaps, to wash away the pains of a long day.

Snuggle in close to my other half and fall asleep, finally, at last.
