I don’t know where the past three days have gone but I’ll try to summarise what I’ve been up to since I last wrote. So, Sunday I left you with a Mother’s day message, then sped off to work. It wasn’t as crazy as I thought it would be…thinking about it Saturday was the crazy, last minute purchases day (the sales for that day broke my personal record). After work, The Man, Munchkin and myself went to my parents’ for lunch where we were met by my sister and her family. The afternoon was spent with friends and at the theatre where Munchkin had a dance rehearsal for the show she will dance (read ‘wiggle her tiny bottom’) in next weekend.
Monday morning I joined Munchkin on a school trip to Popeye’s Village. I had always wanted to go there but was a little disappointed when they had us parents in a room with coffee and bingo (bingo!!) while the kids did all the fun rides and watched puppet shows. I felt like an octogenarian.
We returned home to find Munchkin’s room painted (FINALLY!) and my saint of a mum doing a ‘spot’ of cleaning (read ‘spring clean’). And thank goodness for that because while at Popeye’s Village, my neck froze again. I’m in the same pain I was just over a month ago and must wait another 2 weeks for my appointment with my therapist!
Yesterday I took the day off. In the afternoon we had a ‘guest’ who stayed over for three hours. I cannot yet go into details here but it wasn’t a friend who visited us, even though she was nice. It was a draining experience and there’s more stress coming our way. I will divulge when the time is right.
These couple of days also signalled a dramatic change in temperatures. It is now officially hot! Our summer has started so I also put away all the winter clothes and took out the summer ones. I realised I have 5 tshirts that still fit and a couple of dresses. Munchkin has 2 dresses, 2 skirts and 6 tshirts (she grew out of everything else she had) and my darling husband has 4 drawers packed with tshirts, around 12 trousers/bermudas and a few shirts. I think we need to redress the balance here!
