I haven’t blogged for a while because I’d be in danger of repeating myself, over and over.
Life is ticking by for T and D, we have days where it feels like we’re on that emotional rollercoaster; days where I wonder what the future holds for our very individual children and days mostly when I just want March to hurry up and be done.
In short, I’m Waiting, which is this week’s Word of the Week and could have been many before.
Waiting for an appointment at the hospital on 30th March where I’ll be x-rayed, my feet will be scrutinised and then we’ll know when foot operations two and three will take place, we’ve tentatively talked dates with the consultant but it was very much dependent on how scar tissue is looking after the first operation last October.
So, you see, we’re keeping on, keeping on, but in limbo.
I think the thing that’s frustrated me most is that I have playlists on my phone, “walking tunes” and “jogging tunes” and whenever one of them comes on, in particular “New Life” by Depeche Mode, it reminds me that I used to plough around the field near us to that or the treadmill and it just frustrates me that – for the moment – I can’t do that. Hopefully next Spring, another case of Waiting.
It’s not all bad though, some things have made me cheerful this week:
The “Whackers” as we call them. Very friendly, they were descending on D to get some bread. She found it hilarious when a male took some, put it in the water to soften/break it down and along came the female and nabbed it! Little things.
And, oh my goodness, this!
Apparently one of the coaches thought she has sporting potential and we’ve sent off our details to find out more. D came home saying “I’m going to be a Paralympian” and said her teacher had told her there might be training camps – which seems a bit like building her hopes up to me, there must be loads of children who get the form.
Whatever happens, we are mega proud and again, it’s proof that she has flourished in the right educational setting for her.
Another case of waiting!
