This week has been another whirlwind week, and has seen sports day and lots of organising a planning. We have given Joe’s room a mini makeover and a major sort out. I can’t believe how unorganised and untidy he is.
He never puts things away properly, just squeezes it into a box or any gap he can find. It took ages to sort out. He has promised to keep it tidy from now on, but I wont hold my breath.
This year was the first year in a while I got to attend sports day. Things like this make me realise how lucky I am to be self employed. It was lovely watching Joe and his cousin Kai in their races. And Joe was so thrilled so see me there. I so made the right decision, I cant ever imagine going back into education. And feeling that restricted ever again.
The thing that really stood out from the whole day was the reception class egg and spoon race. One little girl was so behind the others, I am talking way behind. The whole school cheered her until she made it over the finishing line, the noise was deafening. It was beautiful to see how the whole school supported her right to the end. She finished grinning from ear to ear and feeling no doubt like she had won. It was beautiful, thank goodness I had my sunglasses on because it brought tears to my eyes.
This is the only picture I can use as all the others have lots of kids on! But this is Joe and his best friends Fin looking cool and chilled before a race. I can-not believe how quickly they are growing up, this time next year he will be leaving primary school.
My new dining chairs have arrived, and I cant wait to organise and share our new dining area. I love it, it is so much more modern. I am thrilled, it is exactly what I wanted to achieve.
The weather has not been so great this week has it? I saw on the news that there is a heat wave on the way, I so want to believe that, so am going with it. Apparently it will be with us next week and stay for weeks woohooo. Bring on the sunshine.
I have also been doing a bit of holiday shopping for Jack, he is getting to the age when everything is designer and costing a fortune. But I remember how important having the right clothes was at his age, so within reason I want to support him in developing his style. I am glad he is starting get a sense of how he wants to look. I know it is part of growing up, but some people never get that do they?
I think the line is making sure they understand the difference between wanting to look and feel good for yourself and not for others. And not being pressured by media images of how you should look.
We have recently discovered Love the Sales, a more specifically the Ralph Lauren Sale it has some great bargains on designer brands and when you have a teen that is into Ralph Lauren this site is a bit of a godsend.
I plan to spend this afternoon making cocktails, one of my best friends is visiting and we are going to test out my amazing new Nutri Bullet. I had a little try of it yesterday and was nearly hyperventilating. It makes real slushes just like the 7eleven used to make. Do they still make them? Their slushes used to be the best slush ever. Today I may just try a Mango Daiquiri Slush, I cant wait to share that one. I had better get my photos before I drink it ha ha. Have a fab week, and lets hope the sun shines x
