Better day today.
Fran didn’t wake up till 9am (unheard of!) by which time i’d been down a while and got some jobs done. So we started well and it’s been a nice day.
First we read “A Farm through Time” which we all really enjoyed and was a rather fantastic everyone snuggled up to each other on the sofa under a fleece blanket moment. Good book, liked it a lot. Nostalgic somehow. Maddy and i played with a reading readiness set, Amelie and i sat at the table together and cut up paper (as you do), Fran and i did more Greek City Building together. She’s just achieved her first solo city of 1000 people. Quite an achievement. She also did a revision subtraction exercise perfectly.
So all in all, it feels good. Plus, having attempted to get myself together in a 2 week plan, i’ve acknowledged that my chemicals have gone a bit wonky (as has happened about a 9 months to a year after every baby so far, so i’d call that a pattern!) and done something about it. I don’t like experiencing over high levels of anxiety and paranoia because of chemical imbalances, so i’ve dealt with it. And thank you to the two people who have listened kindly and patiently over the last few days, especially given its been quite above and beyond the call of duty really. I’ve appreciated it and won’t forget it 🙂
Tomorrow we are doing Thanksgiving (Beans, i’m mailing you and not hearing back but assume you are probably not able to come anyway – feel free to say if you can) and Thursday is group. Suddenly life feels properly bright again. Thank goodness for self knowledge and a bit of experience. I think i like my 30’s.
