A Word For The Week and #R2BC

By | March 19, 2015

I am so looking forward to next week, for reasons that will become clear in due course, but we have this week to finish first.

To sum it up, it’s been a Challenging one, for all of us.

And here’s why (the R2BC bit):

1.  Up, up and away!

I do not have a head for heights, even standing on a step ladder makes me a bit wobbly.  That’s how I met Hubbie.

The children have many anxieties and worries, but a fear of heights isn’t one of them, I’m glad to say.

On Saturday D and I went on this:

Right up to the blooming top and then down again, very fast!  Whilst D was chirping away saying “I can see Angry Birds Land, look at this!” etc, I was staring at my hand holding the harness, knowing that if I looked anywhere else, I’d not do very well.  A challenge if ever there was one.

I did feel a tad proud of myself and D, the theme park was very busy and it was really quite cold whizzing around on rides.  She did very well in the crowds too.  

2.  Let’s Dance!

D has been attending a dance club after school once a week, they performed a routine for parents/carers yesterday.  She wasn’t comfortable or particularly happy, but got through it.  Well done D!

3.  Moving On

I’ve been using my Fitbit for about 7 weeks now, getting through my 10k daily target, apart from being nearer 8k at weekends.  

A bonus without really curbing my appetite (seashell choc anyone?) is that I’m 8lb lighter and am starting to see the difference.  

4.  Easy does it

A downside of whizzing around rides on a chilly Saturday is that I went along with a tickly mild cough and it’s turned into an annoyingly keep-you-awake hacking one.  

Spring decluttering has continued but at a slower pace, as long as it’s down by the Easter holidays, that will do me.  Both T and D will need their downtime, without their mum sorting out “hippobag/recycling/charity shop” piles everywhere.

Challenging, calm and coughing.  Roll on next week!
