Well, as suspected, it’s been one of those weeks where my feet hasn’t touched the ground. And there’s been no time for blogging respite- this is now the third week where my blog consists solely of my Little Loves post.
Last weekend was full of family fun and it was straight to London on Monday morning. I got home in time for university and will be there until Saturday evening. But there has been moments in between to appreciate some Little Loves.
I’ve been keeping some time back each evening to continue reading The Power, obviously not enough time as I’ve not yet finished, but I am enjoying this new routine.I’ve also been reading lots in preparation for my fifth module. It’s been a little hard going but having got through university yesterday without looking at my watch I’m so happy that it feels like an enjoyable subject.
I can’t believe some days how quickly it seems to be going. I was in touch this week with someone who helped me with my research proposal when I was writing my application, to know I’m getting closer to the place where I have to make the proposal a reality is daunting and exciting in almost equal measure.
It’s been another week of writing lots of papers for work, so I’ve been trying to find music which I haven’t listened to for a while. I don’t know why but I find I work much better when I’m listening to music, but not if it’s music I know too well.
This week I discovered the playlist Walk Like A Badass which has been absolutely perfect.
Oh, I’ll have to stretch the imagination again this week- I wore a bandage. I was lucky enough to be able to give blood this week. It’s one of those weird things, I have memories of always going with my mum when I was little. I feel I’ve gotten into the whole giving blood thing too late, there was no reason I didn’t do it when I was younger but it just wasn’t a thing. Now, I try to make sure I’m working from home when Wales Blood Service comes to our local community centre, and fortunately this week it worked out.
I’m going to have to ride of the boys’ birthday for one final week. The party was a success- thankfully. I received some of the nicest text messages afterwards. It seems I might have earned my stars as a cool mum. So yes, now I can turn my hand to a few more home improvements before thinking about CM turning nine!
Mr J started work this week! It’s hysterical, I bumped into one of the mum’s on the school run who commented that I had lost my housekeeper. I was completely confused. But yes, after almost nine years of being a stay-at-home parent, he’s back in the rat race. Typically, he’s landed on his feet, it’s a job completely up his street and it’s not too many hours.
I’ve no doubt it’s going to be a little challenging. It’s been quite easy for me to commit to everything work-wise knowing he’s at home. So, we’ve got to learn how to spin an extra plate.
