Hihi! I am alive. I was right with my previous prediction of not being able to update until September! I have both loved and hated not blogging. There is something very therapeutic about spouting tosh into your computer! But it has been nice to have a break and not have the pressure from myself to try and "keep up to date". I don't know how I am going to blog from here on. I want to update on what we have done and yet at the same time its all so out of date is there any use?? Feed back here would be good! Do you want me to jump into current affairs or catch up on the past? The perfectionist in me wants to try and catch up! But I am so far behind that will be a big, long task! I have been going to bed at midnight - a far cry from my previous 130am!! I miss staying up late as I got so much more done. Can't say i'm much less tired though as I still come home and take a morning nap! Just nap a little less long!
The only real big change this end is that we are now a family of 7 instead of 4! 3 new fluff bummed additions have joined us in chickens! They are totally adorable and have completely taken over. Even visiting the kitchen today ... ha! Most of you who follow me on facebook will know about them already and i'll come to "the" post about them at some point.
The girls have gone back to school this week only had tears from Sophie on Monday the rest of the week has gone well. I think this is in part due to the continuity of her having the same teacher as last year - Mr G. Now Mr G is every mums dream. He is both a really good gentle teacher but also a good bit of eye candy! I could go on but my husband might be reading this ... ha! Or he might not cook my tea tonight ...!! So Sophie is now in Year 2 and Jess has just moved into year 5! Which is nothing short of terrifying now that leaving and going to secondary school is just around the corner! We even had the email about visiting a secondary school today. They do visits for years 5&6. I feel year 5 is too soon but this is just me in denial BIG time!
Right i'm going to look back to July when life started to go mental and do an update from there and see how we go. I think i'll try and bang out some updates daily for a bit (she says ... !) and try and catch up. See the perfectionist in me is trying to win ... So back we go to ...
Monday 5th July:
Today was an inset (or as I have seen this ever since I was a kid - InseCt!) day! So we went to town. I started the morning by pulling out some random junk from the garage. I wasn't even dressed lol. I went looking for ... something ... and just started pulling stuff out. Out came the pushchair. It's not a in a great state but it is still possibly usable. Would like to sell for a tenner or something but it gets stuck trying to put it up and down. So hubby needs to look at it. Sophie however was very excited and wanted to put her doll in it.
Later that evening was spent writing birthday invitations for Jessica's birthday in 11 days time.
Tuesday 6th July:
Kids back at school after their day off. Over the weekend we put doors and shelves on Jesscia's new kallax unit. I had forgotten to post this. We had them but hadn't put them on yet. 1 black door as they didn't have anymore than that! And some glass shelves. Which I wasn't for but hubby was lol. Tbh there wasn't that much choice mind!
