Confidence – Thurs 28th April 2016

By | April 28, 2016

Oh boy, it’s Thursday already.  Part of me is glad it’s nearly the weekend, another just doesn’t want this week to finish because it’s been a good one.  Tiring but good. This little lady has done us proud this week, narrating and singing in the choir in two Oliver evening performances at her school. We […]

Chicks – Thurs 21st April 2016

By | April 21, 2016

D’s settling to sleep amidst tears tonight, she’s had a week of rehearsals for the school musical next week (and an energetic school trip) and she’s a tad wrung out, emotionally and physically. Tonight’s tears were set off by something very, very slight and, as is the way, when the tears start, they carry on […]

This week’s #WOTW and #R2BC

By | April 14, 2016

Voluntary work can be a strange old experience, there are such a mixture of personalities and mindsets involved.  I enjoy what I do (director of communications and events) and I guess my previous PA skills come in very handy with regard to organising myself and getting things done. However…. as I said, there can be […]

One More – Thurs 7th April 2016

By | April 7, 2016

Can you hear me “yay-ing”? You might be able to, even if you read this a few days later.    D had her last-but-one injection today, so there’s one more to go.  One more until we don’t have to play the “D runs around/squeezes me” scenario until I nearly burst whilst the nurse tries to […]

This week’s Reasons To Be Cheerful #R2BC 

By | March 31, 2016

Hurrah for Thursday and positive thinking. This time last week, I was feeling really ropey, flu-ey and yucky.  Hence my little blog break. I must admit that I did feel guilty about not posting any positivity but it just wasn’t there.  It’s back now though! So, here we go, in no particular order: 1.  Storm […]

Ants – This Week’s #WOTW and #R2BC 

By | March 17, 2016

You know when you have a song in your head,  that makes you feel a bit like this:    Well, that’s been me this week.   A particular song has accompanied me on the school run, pestered me through meetings and seems to be firmly stuck there. I’ll play something like (appropriately) “Shake It Off”, […]

Date – This week’s #WOTW and #R2BC

By | March 10, 2016

Ooh we are baaad parents, naughty us!  The children were safely at school, Hubbie had a day off and we had a cinema gift card at our disposal. Yes, we snuck off to the cinema, to a lunchtime showing of Dad’s Army.  With snacks too (which cost more than the actual tickets, just as well […]

This week’s #WOTW and #R2BC

By | March 3, 2016

Normally, by this time on a Thursday, I’d have already decided on a word to sum up our week, but this week I haven’t.    It’s been a really mixed week.   T had a school trip on Tuesday, something we thought he’d enjoy (football stadium trip), but he didn’t.  It seemed that they spent […]

This week’s #WOTW and #R2BC

By | February 25, 2016

Nearly Friday (YAY!) and time to sum up our week in a few words. This week hasn’t been a particularly easy one, both T and D not heading back to school as well as they could have and the fallout has been felt, both before and after school. It’s felt a bit never-ending and today […]

This week’s #WOTW and #R2BC

By | February 18, 2016

I could write about how we’ve had a half term of days out and laughing, happy children but I can’t.  Both T and D have been ill and therefore our word for the week is:    But, you know, that’s okay.  There’s been no school runs to worry about, no volunteer meetings for me and […]
