Emotions – Fri 9th Jan 2015

By | January 9, 2015

It feels a bit glib to write a blog tonight about our day in the light of events today in Paris.

So, I’ll start by saying “Peace, Love and Happiness to all”.

Today has been a day of emotions for D, of bottling-up emotions. Emotions that are only let out once she saw that we were there to collect her. Much to the surprise of her teachers who said she’d been fine.

D has always tended to bottle any negativity up until the end of the day. She lacks the confidence to say of events as they happen and waits until it is gently coaxed out of her.

Once she’s told me/us, she relaxes and seems a lot happier, she certainly was today. Hand in hand as we walked out to meet T’s bus, she is still singing Christmas songs, just not in school.

T went off to school extremely grumpy and returned the same way. Partly it’s because it’s the first week back at school (and it was a full week, he went back on Monday) and partly because he’s not sure if he’ll be playing a match tomorrow. If he does, it will be the first in about 5 weeks, due to Christmas and soggy pitches. Hopefully he will but he is (grumpily) prepared for the fact he may now.

As with every Friday, we have a “best, worst and funniest bits of the week”:

D’s “best bit” was “now and seeing everyone happy”; there were no “worst bits”, which is typically D, she is very much in the here and now.

T’s “worst bit” was “school” (oh dear) and, as he can be in the here and now too, no “best bits” unfortunately.

Hopefully he’ll play a game tomorrow, or at least have a kick-about.

In the meantime, D and I will be making bracelets, to replace the one that’s been lost today at school (the cause of her angst).
