Yesterday went very quickly. A visit by Auntie Kate in the morning, a visit to AWorld with MPers in the afternoon, Fran’s new Musical Theatre class in the evening, a evening on the sofa with Max and Josie. Lovely.
I’ve been doing lots of thinking lately, trying hard to put some sort of sense of what i want to be and where i want to go to my life (Fran asked me the other day what i am going to be when i grow up!!!!). I feel slightly up in the air at the moment, as if i have reached a crossroads in my life but i don’t really see the roads there are to take at the moment. It was odd to discover that Max is feeling much the same, at least, he seems to have been thinking a lot too. Things are very good for us at the moment, after a very rocky year last year and its nice to feel safe and happy. Mind you, saying that is probably enough to trigger a row! I do need to get my head together a bit really, i think i know just the person to help though 😀
Kate and i spent some time talking about things in the morning too and i did feel very grateful for her reassurance that my little family of girls seem very “right” – she spends enough time with them and other children to know about kids and i trust her a lot when it comes to my girls. She made me feel good about them anyway.
MuddlePuddle was great – 21 kids which is a really good number. We’ve got a great basis for our local group and its nice to see it beginning to establish itself. I’ve struggled for quite a while feeling that i hadn’t really got local friends and now suddenly i do and its great. With camps and allotment and groups, we’ve got lots to look forward to over the next 6 months, i just need to be healthy. *scowls*
Ammi had a lovely time with Boss, always nice to see a good Muslim boy following politely behind his woman (albeit in a car!) *winks at Debbie* Ammi still insists she’s going to marry her friend Buttercup but she certainly seems to have some pull with the boys! 😀 Fran managed to put her tooth into her lip *cue lots of blood* Maddy lost her voice completely but it didn’t seem to stop them having fun.
While Fran was at Musical Theatre (“bit scary, good fun, i’m shy, learned how to breathe”) i nipped to Homebase for some foxgloves and plastic sheeting. I can’t go to the Opticians today because i’ve got a huge stye in my eye so i’m going to garden today instead. And maybe do some art with the girls.
Not much else of note really (if any of that was in the first place.) Except that i’ve got 4lbs to lose before i get to my pre-HESFES weight goal (only a month to go! gulp!) Oh and the slightly depressing news that Fran and Maddy are on the edge, from the sounds of it, of some bullying at one of their groups. I think the only reason they aren’t getting bullied is that they actually haven’t noticed (lol); its not my story to tell so i won’t but i’m reasonably concerned it might be going to become an issue for them as well as the pain its already causing elsewhere so my head is well and truly up. Max and i talked about it for a long time last night. I’ve got total zero tolerance when it comes to buillying; i don’t believe that small children ARE old enough to deal with it, or see there way through it for themselves. I could go on but i won’t – or at least not yet. But if anyone starts on my girls, i’ll be banging heads.
