Hi guys, welcome to my weekly catchup!
I’ve been feeling a little under the weather this week, it’s not helped by the fact that we had terrible weather! Rainy England kept to traditions and poured down on us several days during the week especially on Thursday as we felt the wrath of storm Erik! It was so awful the rain was actually seeping in through the joints on the boy’s bedroom windows! (Note to self – I’ll have to get those windows replaced in summer!)
On the plus side, we had a family member visit from Australia this week and it was lovely to catchup. It did bring home again the weather differences between our two countries and made me imagine life, living down under! I could really get used to all that sunshine I so crave… Imagine, hot sun beaming down, family trips to a beach where the water is actually warm, barbecues… Sounds enticing doesn’t it? It’s a shame Australia is so far away! I don’t think I could handle over 24 hours on an aeroplane, I just about handled 4 hours to Greece last year! Shame!
Also this week, I had my middle son’s options evening at his school. We went around all the subjects he could choose to study over the next 3 years to gain his GCSE’s and at the end of it we were left baffled! With my eldest son, it was easy! He knew his interests and the subject areas he could thrive in. But this time round, my son is stuck as there are too many options to pick from, even more than 2 years ago when the eldest son picked! To top the stress off even more, he has to sit an interview to explain why he wants to pick the subjects he chooses before they are granted! Now that’s a lot to put on a 13 year old!
With another week over and a new one to start, a really hectic one but I’ll tell you about that next week, here’s my highlight and low point of the week:
Highlight: Catching up with our visitor from Australia.
Low point: My washing machine broke on friday night when I have all the school uniforms and smelly P.E kits to wash!
I hope you’ve all had a good week. As usual, I would love to hear your highlight of the week but I would also like to share your low point. So leave me a message below…
