The picture above definitely describes our week – we are all just so tired and more than ready for a break. Everything just seems so busy at the moment and when I think of the forthcoming weeks we have so many plans and appointments, not forgetting a trip to Bluestone too. There is so much I want to do – get the house in order for summer, sort out the girls wardrobes, dedicate some time for my blog etc. However, my energy levels are preventing me at the moment and there just doesn’t seem like enough time in the day – frustrating! I know everyone has periods like this and in a month or so it will turn around and everything will seem calmer and more organised – I am hoping the half term will allow us a little down time.
This week my big girl started Rainbows, she has mentioned it a few times and a couple of months ago I finally got around to signing her up. Everyone had warned me that there was a huge waiting list but to my surprise a couple of weeks after signing her up we got a phone call saying there was a space for her. She was so excited and, whilst I was nervous, she was absolutely fine, she was so happy afterwards she simply can’t wait to go back. She is such a social butterfly, it is party after party at the moment. She has ballet class on a Tuesday evening and she actually has a dance show this afternoon. Whilst it is tiring for us taking her back and forth to classes after a full day in school she loves these clubs and her confidence is growing each day.
Life seems to be going at such a fast pace now. I keep reminiscing to this time last year when everything seemed so different and much calmer – endless days in the park playing just the three of us and just generally taking each day as it came. Now time is flying by, it is so busy and there is so much rushing. I know everything can’t stay the same forever but some days I just wish I could press pause…..
