Back to reality

We have had Christmas and welcomed in the New Year.  It is now time to get back to normality (whatever that is).

I had my day all planned for today, been thinking about it over the last couple of weeks, but today is going to be a hit and miss day.

My Daughter is not due back to school until 10.50 this morning, why I have no idea, every other school goes back at normal time.  The only good thing about this was the alarm could be set a little later than usual which was a blessing, as you know those nights when knowing you have the alarm set for the next morning, you just can not go to sleep no matter how hard you try.  I do remember still being awake at 1.45.

Then it was the worrying about what time my Daughter needs to catch her bus, so she is not there too early and standing around waiting for the gates to open, but not late.  Think I have it sorted now thanks to my amazing phone app.

I also had to be awake early to make a Dr appointment for my Daughter after school, as she has a few pains that are not going since Thursday, and now think maybe it is not her just whinging on about them and perhaps there is something that needs checking (yes I am that horrible Mum that can not stand the whinging about pain when there is nothing wrong), and surprisingly got through on the first attempt and got an appointment for just after school.

Then my Mum has a hospital appointment later this afternoon where she is having a procedure, she thinks she is dying, when we all know she is not, so am losing my patience with that one.  Just hoping she will realise once she is out from her appointment.

Yesterday, we found some devastating news due to the heavy rain, so will be spending the rest of my day sorting that out.

So happy Monday everyone, hopefully this is just a little blip at the start of the new year and 2016 will improve and get better.

      I was quite sad that she went back to school today, the holidays seem to have flown by. It has been a busy and very stressful time. I am planning on doing nothing all weekend, well no housework at least x

    Sounds like a very busy start to the New Year. How bizarre that your daughter has to go in late. Surely that’s not more teacher training? Why don’t teachers come fully trained anymore?

      It has been a very busy start but not in the way we wanted unfortunately, she was over the moon to go in late it really messed my head up, I think the teachers just wanted an extra lie in

      We are back in normal routine tomorrow as school is normal times again, I had planned on getting her to school and then had so much planned for today, but with what has happened I was busy with dealing with that. Hopefully can get on track tomorrow

    It’s been a hard bump back to reality for me this week even though I don’t have to do the school run! I hope that next week is easier for us all!

      5am oh no 🙁 I though 6.45 was bad enough, was not impressed with getting up in the dark.

      Something major has happened, devastating at the moment and a huge impact on our lives

      First day back is always horrible, although today was the first proper day as school started at normal time so that was a shock.
