All 3 kids were due to be in school full time this week. For the first time in 11 years, I wouldn't have a child at home with me for at least part of the day. It's something I have to admit that I was not looking forward to. Whilst I love watching my girls grow up, & become individuals in their own right, I'm not dealing very well with the fact I won't be having anymore babies. People told me to enjoy having 'Me' time (what's that?), enjoy having time to craft, bake & take bubble baths in the day. My Hubby has been encouraging me to finally take the leap & start making things to sell. (It's a dream of mine to have my own little business, but taking the steps to realise that dream is pretty terrifying!)
So I was slightly dreading this week. I thought I'd ease myself in by just concentrating on a bit of housework, some baking & getting around to finishing a CK inspired quilt (the top has been assembled for ages!!) It was starting to sound like a pretty good week to me.
But Monday rolled around, & involved my eldest daughter being sick off school. No crafting or baking took place as she needed looking after ( I'm not complaining about looking after her, it was nice to have that time together). So my plans were postponed till Tuesday.
Then Tuesday involved a emergency doctors appointment for my middle daughter, & picking eldest daughter up early from school as she was feeling poorly again. Plans postponed again.
This morning, I woke up to all 3 girls feeling poorly. Autumn has definitely arrived here, not only has it brought the cold, darker mornings & evenings & a fair bit of rain, it's also brought a bunch of nasty colds. So today I'm in full Mum mode, to 3 poorly girls home sick from school. I'm not holding out much hope for the rest of the week being easier, tomorrow is full of hospitals appointments for middle daughter, Friday will be spent grocery shopping & doing housework. Maybe this is life's way of helping me cope with the kids going off to school, as I'm sure I will appreciate a bit of peace & quiet & routine next week lol!
