Before you all start getting excited, no I am not pregnant. But we do have an extra child living with us now, my 18 year old stepson. It all happened very quickly but he has been here a week now.
As you can imagine things have been quite hectic with sorting him out and sorting his room etc,as well as dealing with C.
She is still no better and we have been unable to go out and enjoy the lovely weather we have been having. I have been struggling with the summer holidays, with everyone going on holiday and having fun days out, but she is just not up to it and in a lot of pain. We saw her consultant on Monday who has altered her medication slightly, but that wiped her out for the rest of the week.
The one thing with the kids being older now, is that they do not fight and argue all the time, they can both be in the car without a fight starting before we have even got out of our road, and they actually talk now which is lovely. Don’t get me wrong they do still argue but it is more banter now.
Having an 18 year old in the house has been a right eye opener and I am slowly training him about being tidy etc.
My food bill has rocketed and I am just not used to having a child come and go as they want, but at over 6ft tall he is quite capable of looking after himself.
My peace has been shattered also, the one time I get to properly sit down, is to watch my soaps, and I have to listen to them over some video he is watching on facebook, or chatting to one of his friends on hands free.
We have also had the eldest here this weekend as well, and on Saturday had an evening in London with the two boys which was lovely, just us spending some quality time with the boys, C stayed at home with my parents.
Last night the boys went out clubbing, we heard them come in at 4 ish, and when I looked at my phone this morning S had left me a message telling me they were home.
But he is a great kid and I am loving him being here.
Sorry I have not been doing my updates but I have literally just not done anything exciting and am sure you would all be bored about my housework and weekly shopping.
Hope you are all enjoying the summer and lovely weather we have been having.
