Miss 8 asked me today “Why are you so mean?”. A question which stopped me in my tracks and tore at my heart. Massively. I walked out of the room wanting to calm down and gather my thoughts before responding.
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. Continue reading “Term time madness “
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. Continue reading “Six weeks into the summer holidays “
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. Continue reading “Bad Mummy day”
Five happy weeks have been and gone. Just one week left until the chaos of school descends upon us. Continue reading “Five weeks into the summer holidays “
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. Continue reading “Three weeks into the summer holidays “
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!
Miss 7 has just come running down the stairs with a big toothless grin and a little white tooth clenched firmly between her fingers! She was closely followed by Master 5 who preceded to inspect her mouth thoroughly! He can’t wait to loose a tooth but has no signs of it happening anytime soon. So he is grasping onto his big sisters excitement!
The babies have had a whole week off already in their 6 week summer holidays. We have had so much fun this week and just being with them has just made me extremely happy. Finally the tiredness from each of us is dispersing and the loving sibling relationships are returning in full force.
