Things happen in our lives to try us. Those moments that make us question ourselves, the world around us and how we can improve things going forward.
This week has been full of these moments for me. I’ve tried my best to shake off the last trying moment in order to deal with the next. I have failed. It has been one thing after another and if I’m honest it has gotten the better of me.
You can’t change the world
The week kicked off with a meeting at the children’s school. With me questioning their nursery admission policy and criteria. It didn’t go well. Whilst I hope that I’ve given the headteacher and school governor food for thought. If anything does change it won’t have any effect on Piglet. As there won’t be a place for her come January when her three-year-old funding comes into place.
Remember your station in life
Whilst I have a backup plan for her not starting preschool in January as we had hoped. It doesn’t make it any easier to accept the outdated policies, admission strategies and communication from the school. For a new build school I had expected them to be ahead of the game – sadly, they are woefully behind the previous schools the children have attended.
With this still playing on my mind, I headed to London on Tuesday. An amazing opportunity was at my fingertips, to which I blew – spectacularly blew! Embarrassing myself both personally and professionally. With a stark reminder to myself that I need to remember my place in the world. Stepping outside of this and I manage to screw things up.
Even simple tasks are difficult
The rest of the week followed with the cremation of Mr Boo’s lunches. A trampoline going for a walk across the garden at 2am. And a near miss in the car which left me shaking like a leaf. It’s just been one thing after another all week long – I need a break!
All I can say is thank goodness the week is almost over!
