Well… this week I don’t even know where to begin. Last weekend, seems like so long ago now. I wasn’t feeling myself so I didn’t go to football to watch Tyler, which is the first time in forever, when I have been at home. I chilled out at home with the other two. Caught up on eating some of the Easter chocolate and candy, just look at that lolly, who wouldn’t want that. I read and did some writing. I wanted to get my first chapter of my novel re-written which I managed. Aria decided to pick me some daisies to cheer me up and they did just that. Daisies and little ones go hand in hand.
During the week has been work, which is still a bit of a nightmare and kids have been at school and nursery. I was off Tuesday this week as oldest was going through a bit of a tough time. He stepped out his comfort zone and comforted an issue that has been causing him a lot of upset. Both my husband and I were so proud of him. And although Lucas didn’t get the answers he was looking for, he did get some. It really is difficult as they get older and you can’t step in and fix everything for them. I am really going to struggle after the summer I feel with Lucas going into his final year of primary and then beyond.
Wednesday, I got home from work at 6:46pm and Lucas and Robert were already on their way to football. It was our kitten Twilight’s birthday and Aria was upset I didn’t have a cake. What was I going to do, it was too late to go out and get one as I didn’t have the car. I managed to have enough ingredients to rustle up a mug cake. Now it wasn’t a chocolate one that I have on the Mug Cake recipe, but I did add some chocolate chips. I made a couple so we could all have one and sung happy birthday to our cat, Twilight. She didn’t seem hugely fussed, but these little things matter, don’t they?
I was off work again on Thursday as Aria had another taster session at school. This time it was playground games. She took it all in her stride and played away. We went to after school club since I was off, as it’s usually one of the grandparents that take the kids. We made some cheerio bird feeders and played around.
My mum went on holiday to her flat in Malta on Thursday. I got a text message on Thursday around dinner time to say she’d taken ill and an ambulance had been waiting to take her off the plane. I don’t really know a lot else and it’s now Saturday evening. I have went through panic, worry, crying and anger. I have tried to call the hospital, but got nowhere due to language barrier and not knowing what ward she is in. I know she’s had ct scans and is having an MRI scan. I’ve had a text from her, to say she is ok, but not spoke to her or her partner. I am sure she’s ok, but I just don’t know what happened. I have been worried sick and tried to keep it from the kids. Thankfully, I was working yesterday, Friday, to keep me distracted and could phone around the hospitals.
This weekend I am feeling drained and awaiting word about my mum. I got to see Lucas play two football matches this morning, which is the first in a while as I’m usually taking Tyler to his football training at the same time. It was a good match and the younger two got to play in the park next to where the match was which was so handy. Tomorrow, Sunday will be football for Tyler. I am so drained and just going to chill tonight on the couch with my new favourite Edinburgh Rhubarb and Ginger Gin. Have you tried it? It’s amazing.
Then we both have bank holiday Monday off, so I am looking forward to a family day out somewhere. Provided the news doesn’t change. I love dandelion clocks and seemed to take pictures of a few this week if you follow me on instagram, so I will leave you with my quote for you all on my dandelion clock.
What have you been up to?
