Blogging has been quite slow of late, I must try harder to get my thoughts down.
How is life?
I have mixed feelings. We are still playing the daily, trying to keep it clean game – but it is not as bad as it was in terms of clutter. There is still some way to go though. The dog has slowed things down. There are jobs that hubby needs to do that he keeps putting off.
This is two fold – lets start with in the house. T is doing well at secondary school, but the school is not doing well with him. They aren’t setting him challenging work and the behaviour of the children appears appalling. M is as accident prone as ever. We are currently keeping a close eye on a cut to her foot that she got in the garden from an old washing ling pine (A job hubby hasn’t got round to). J is doing great – she wrote her name the other day. Two letters looked similar but considering she couldn’t write a J independently a few weeks ago – this is huge. We are considering the next school that she will go to as we think main stream may no longer be appropriate for her.
Mum and dad – Well, we are talking but keeping it brief. They have glossed over everything like it never happened. I certainly shall not forget and I shall make sure that I never let my guard down again. The sisters – not spoken to them. As far as little sister go that shall carry on indefinitely. I guess the whole situation will be bought up again when I do not send her a card and if she sends a card for T’s birthday, I shall return it.
SATs have now finished and the children could not have had a better attitude when taking them. There is nothing else we could’ve done and the head said as much – giving me a thank you card and a bottle of prosecco. We still haven’t been told where we are next half term but hey ho. We have lesson observations in a fortnights time. I hate observations – they are like going to the dentist. I am very hit and miss. Sometimes my observations can be good, other times they got to pot.
We have the dog now. It is just as I had hoped. He is adorable and loves me to bits. He gets so excited when he sees me in the morning and loves nothing more than to play and cuddle with me. I feel so blessed.
Definitely an area I still need to work on.
