It has been a very busy and emotional week for us here.
Last Saturday, my daughter came back home after her amazing holiday away with my parents on a Disney Cruise, I know how lucky was she. Unfortunately, she came home with a raging temperature, sore throat, bad ear and cough. She literally walked in the door and went straight to bed, where she stayed until Monday.
On Monday, we had one of the boys and his girlfriend over for the day, was lovely spending some time together and meeting his girlfriend for the first time. Unfortunately, my daughter was still ill and only managed to get up and see them for about half an hour, which is very unlike her as she adores her brothers.
Wednesday, I was lying in bed that night catching up on blogs and my engagement ring did not feel right, it had snapped somehow just where the setting is, so need to take that in to be fixed, luckily it is nothing major, but still upsetting, and feels weird not wearing it.
Thursday, was getting everything sorted for the next day. Yes Friday the big day arrived and my daughter started Secondary school, how that has come around so quickly I do not know, but looking at her photos yesterday, she has suddenly grown up a lot. While I sat with that nervous feeling all day, and enjoying the fact my school run days are over. I sat and tracked the bus home, oh yes I knew how long she had to wait, when she had got on and when it was due to stop at our stop. She walked in using her own front door key huge smile on her face and full of her day. What a relief.
So it was a mixed week, but glad it is over and we are enjoying the weekend, before the start of a full week of school and getting up early every day. I am sure I will be posting next week, how much she isn’t enjoying school with all the homework x
