It feels like a new year
It’s so weird, maybe because I have been a teacher for so long. But September always feels like a fresh new year for me too. The boys are back and school, both have important years ahead of them. Jack is in his GCSE year, although I wish he were less laid back about it. And Joe is in his SATs year, and looking at and choosing a high school.
As they both headed back and settled in this year I sighed a huge sigh of relief. Both seem happy and content and ready for the year ahead.
I finally got around to joining the gym this week
Being less active in my work has been ok so far, but I am aware that I cannot get away with it much longer. When I was teaching I was on my feet and darting about all day. Now I spend more time at a desk I need to make sure I am getting to the gym, swimming and doing classes to keep my fitness levels up and the weight down.
So far this week I have had lunch at the gym oops, but the food is so good! Been for a swim and had my gym induction. It felt so good to being getting back into it. I loved the gym before Joe was born. But having two little ones and a husband who used to work away lots meant I had no time for the gym.
The great thing about the boys getting older and needing me less (which I have struggled with a bit) is that I have more time for me. Going to the gym or spa used to be impossibility unless I went instead of sleeping! I can now enjoy my time working out.
We have enjoyed a bit of sunshine
We have had some lovely sunny days this week. But I knew it was short-lived, so have finally got round to building and filling my new garden shed. Thank goodness I did as it rained for hours yesterday. Fortunately all my new garden furniture and cushions are all safely locked away until next year. So sad to think that summer is over, but exciting as September is my favourite month, I LOVE this time of year. It is also my birthday this week, so I will be celebrating with some of my favourite people over the weekend. And then working it all off in the gym next week.
Have a lovely weekend and catch up next week.
