The Easter holidays are here and we are looking forward to lots of family days outs and activities. In some ways, it doesn’t feel like five minutes since the last half term yet in another way it feels like it has been a long time since all the children were at home. It’s been a busy week attempting to get things straight ready for the holidays. I’m not quite there yet but the holidays are here so everything else will have to wait.
I attacked this week armed with a to-do list and a calendar of school events, shopping trips and car repairs that needed to be completed. Finally, I feel as though I’m back to work mode. Making an effort to utilise my renewed energies and enthusiasm to clear the backlog of tasks.
This week has not been plain sailing though. It has tested me in ways I’d rather wish it hadn’t. And I’ve already muttered the words ‘it is February yet?’ on more than one occasion. Alas, these things are sent to try us and try me they have.
The reality of being back at school, nursery and work for a whole week hasn’t quite sunk in. I’m completely…
Just like that we have reached the final #LittleLoves of the year. I’m actually quite annoyed with myself that I wasn’t able to complete a whole year. With my post falling by the wayside this month between the chaos of Christmas, school activities and family life. Chasing my tail for at least the last month, I don’t know if I’m coming or going. The New Year needs to see changes in lifestyle made, I cannot continue in the manner I have been. A balance needs to be found, goals to be set and a different way of thinking.
Thank the heavens it is Friday! It has been one of those weeks in the Boo Roo and Tigger Too household. With an amazing family trip to Butlins Minehead for their #WWEButlins weekend. Roo had the opportunity to celebrate her 11th birthday whilst we were there and she had such a wonderful weekend. Heading home in time to celebrate Tigger’s 7th birthday (never a good idea to have birthdays three days apart). After that it all went downhill, with all of us suffering in one way or another will illness, with Tigger being sent home from school on Thursday after being sick in his classroom (so sorry Miss M and Miss C). Add into the mix technical issues with my laptop and blog, I have simply wanted to crawl back under the duvet and hide from the world.
I’ve been in quite a reflective mood this week, prompted by a visit to London which I was asked questions about my blog. How I started it, why I blog, what I blog about etc. It made me think back to the good old days when blogging was much simpler. I simply wrote about what I wanted, in the way I wanted and pressed publish. Whereas now there is so much more that goes into creating a blog post and I guess I miss those simpler days.
Suddenly Monday appears again
Where was the weekend?
I lost it again
The above lyrics are from one of my favourite Melanie C songs – Suddenly Monday. These few lines have been racing through my mind this week as the days have been ticking away. Before I know it, it will be Monday again and not only will I have lost the weekend but the week previous to it.
I’m sure that someone has sneaked a few extra days into this week. Which in some ways is a good thing as it feels like I have been here, there and everywhere this week. On the other hand, I just haven’t been feeling 100% so I’ve wished for bedtime to come around quicker more than once. The big milestone this week has been going to look at a local high school for Roo. Not quite sure I’m ready for her to move up to high school next year but I know that she is ready for the next challenge.
Time for this week’s #Little Loves…
Friday once again and I have no idea where this week has gone. With a weekend full of trips into the city for a dragon puppet workshop with Norwich Puppet Theatre. They were awarded almost £5,000 from the Aviva Community Fund for their Voice of a Child work. The children had a fantastic time and we just about managed to dodge the rain showers. Followed by a family get together on Sunday to celebrate Mr. Boo’s birthday. Everything after that is a blur of school runs, food shopping, and cleaning.
Time to share this week’s #LittleLoves…
After an awful week last week I was hoping that this one would be much better. On the whole, my…
