Must blog, if only because it has been so pleasantly mundane! I do feel like we are in a particularly enjoyable phase of family life right now, even boring stuff (in comparion to our busy summer) is just feeling very ‘right’.
So, high points were:
*Sitting at the table with Fran yesterday morning, while i NaNo’ed and she did some Maths, with Josie playing at our feet, while the other two did lego harmoniously
*Getting the badges sewn on – finally, to tremendous acclaim from Fran. (Not, how ungrateful is she at times? :roll:) But at least i did it.
*Hitting 17000 words (nearly) on NaNo, despite having been at 6000 on Thursday.
*Josie learning to say “ow” with comic effect.
*All 6 of us managing to get into our bed this morning.
*Getting my bead room tidied.
*All 4 girls helping me put the weeks washing away.
*Having “champ” for tea, 2 sit down lunches and a roast tonight. Love eating together at weekend, just isn’t do-able in the week.
*Taking the big two swimming tonight, helping Fran get the hang of doggy paddle and seeing her swim a good 3 metres. More than that, enjoying being out with 2 big children who don’t need drying and redressing anymore. Could get used to that. Also finding a pool i like.
Just got so much else i need to do though. How to fit it all in? And ARGH – only 2 days to half way point and still 8000 words to write. Who’s idea was this?
