This week will be a hard slog. 3 days at work and summer camp, then off camping Wednesday evening. The trailer isn’t ready! The house is a bomb site after a week off making memories. This weekend was a bust after getting totally plastered with the school mums on Friday. Saturday spent hungover on the sofa and today my eibs feel like the are completly bruised and cracked! A humongous pile of laundry to get through. It is also my baby brothers 21st birthday tomorrow. Am I an awful human being for being thankful that he doesn’t want a family meal, we really don’t have the time. Then it is my brother-in-law’s birthday on Tuesday and parentals anniversary on Wednesday. Which is just adding to a long list of things to do. I am huge on family and it isn’t the obligation that it sounded like! I just wish I had more hours in the day to do what needs to be done and celebrate with the people who matter and still manage to get some proper sleep.
I can but dream and persevere
Here we go again. I wrote the entire post but got distracted by cooking dinner and big man coming home from work, that I accidentally deleted the entire thing.
Definitely had a better day today than yesterday. Ankle is still a bit sore but manageable.
Today is Children in Need so little man went to preschool in his pj’s. They all looked adorable. I will say though that getting him ready this morning felt wrong. Changing him from pj’s into more pj’s. I had a set of normal clothes ready for him to change into when he’d finished because we were going straight out for lunch. Nan’s treat. It was a lovely few hours out. And I’m a bad granddaughter because it was the 1st time this week I’d managed to get round. Just so busy at the moment.
While little man was at preschool I nipped out and ran some errands. Fill up the car, parcel to the post office. It is an unanswerable question. But why does it always take so long in the queue at the post office? I also went to The Range. I love this shop. I spend a fortune on junk I never knew I never needed 😀
I was after nice paper and envelopes for the little mans birthday invitations. I’ve set the date for a week Monday, because I want it to be before his birthday and this is the only day I can do, and give the parents enough notice. I’m leaving it a little late. Very disorganised.
We’ve only invited 5 friends to his tea party. The house just isn’t big enough for any more. I’ll post more about his birthday plans closer to it. Can’t believe he will be 4!!!
So at the store I found the cutest Christmas sweetie jar. Yeah I said it Christmas. I love Christmas. Always have, always will. Couldn’t resist it. Will look great on the side in my kitchen 🙂
Anyway so I’m now sat with my feet up, resting my ankle ready for work tomorrow. The men are sat eating their dinner. I’m not eating, still full from lunch. I’ll have a snack later.
This post is shorter than version 1. But thats fine. I’ll leave it there so I can get back to the family. Hopefully I’ll get a chance to post tomorrow. We are child free! Spending some quality time with the big man. It’s our 10 year anniversary.
Have a good evening.
