Gosh this week has been emotional, I think it’s a week I have been building up to for a couple of years! With Joe starting high school and Jack starting college. And I must have been so stressed and nervous about it all but just did not realise.
Until I got the biggest cold sore in the world. You know the kind that is so bad you don’t even want to go out! It was so bad. I was dying to get back to the gym this week, but I didn’t I skulked about at home. Ok not strictly true I have been working. Hard. With a new social media client to get up and running and new website to register and build and a new blog to launch (More about that on Monday) I have been flat-out. But had the opportunity arrived to attend a swanky lunch I would have had to say no! That is how bad I have looked, and as a result felt quite frankly cheesed off.
Anyhow I felt ill as Joe set off on Tuesday morning, it was pouring it down and I so wanted to give him a lift and hold his hand all the way to the school door like I have on all his other first days. But no, he insisted on taking the 5-mile trip by bus with his friends. I know!!!! Day 1 and redundant, I kid you not I felt lost.
That was until I realised I have now swapped dropping Joe of, for dropping Jack of to work! Jack also started college this week not much information there, it was normal. Normal in teen speak is good “I think” as most things in life are normal or poor ha ha.
I think I have held my breath waiting for this week without even knowing I was doing it, it feels such a relief for the first week to be over and everyone be happy. Well apart from the weather what on earth is going on there!
The news that Diversity are performing at the digital kids show, Joe is so excited about the whole show as lots of his favourite YouTubers will be there. And if you have digital mad kids like me tickets are £25 + booking fee, or a family ticket (for 4) is £85 + booking fee. But use this discount code CHAOS10 for 10% off.
The most delicious sweet red cabbage, its one of my fave parts of a Sunday roast yet you cant get till nearer Christmas so I hunted down the recipe to give it a go and its AMAZING. And so easy if you like sweet red cabbage give it a go.
Sweaters all week! I need to get out a buy some new sweaters; can you believe how cold it is?
I am loving reading the Keeper of Lost Things, by Ruth Hogan It is the loveliest book, you feel so engaged with the characters. It’s an easy read but so lovely.
I feel so much calmer after this last week, there are certain weeks in your children’s lives that are huge and this week was one of those weeks for both of our boys. Have lovely week whatever you are up too?
