So we are back into the swing of school life after our six weeks off. I am exhausted. School runs, after school clubs, homework, trips. Then remembering all those forms I need to sign and money that needs to make its way to the office! I don’t know whether I am coming or going and wish we were back in the lull of our beautiful summer.
Six weeks of our summer holidays have been and gone. Six weeks of fun, family time, water fights, days out, the odd squabble here and there and just being together. I’m so going to miss my babies.
I am having one of those days. A Bad Mummy day. The babies aren’t listening to a word I say, they just seem to leave destruction in their path hence my patience is running very very thin.
Five happy weeks have been and gone. Just one week left until the chaos of school descends upon us.
Yet another week has passed by all too fast. Sadly only two weeks left until miss 7 and Master 5 are back to school. Miss 7 started last night saying she is worried about going back to school. It breaks my heart.
Today I attended the funeral of my Great Uncle. He was my wonderful Nan’s younger brother by 14 years and my Great Aunts twin. They now are the only surviving two of six children. Very sadly one of their other brothers only died 3 months ago. So today brought back many emotions which are still so very raw.
Another week of our summer holidays has flown past. Soon the babies will be back at school and I can already feel that dread starting in the pit of my stomach.
In the early hours of Saturday morning my dear friends mum passed away after a very sudden illness. Saturday was also my dear friends wedding day.
Week two of the summer holidays is over already. Where is the time going? It’s been a bit crazy here this week. I had to work three mornings this week but the babies came along with me. It just meant the days flew without us doing much together. I say we haven’t done much but looking over the week we have!
