Week in Review

Last week was the children's first day back at school after the long Easter Holidays. They had 4 weeks off school. As you can see from the blogging activity, we were very busy. The children are exhausted as we go into the weekend and their parent's equally so. It's hard to get back into the swing of things. Mummy had a stressful week at work and Daddy was equally busy with work. Yesterday was one of those days that just didn't go according to plan. I missed the school pickup due to a traffic jam and rang one of the other mum's to help. Tara helpfully took Sebastian and Lewis to the park for me for a few minutes until I could get there. Jacki kept Abigail at home with her until I could get over to her house to pick her up. Thank goodness I have people to support me when things don't go according to plan.

Today is the Medieval Fayre at St George's School and the mums for Year 1 are running the Bouncy Castle. Seb will dress up like a knight and Abigail will go as a princess/fairy. It's the only costume she will wear! Photos to follow. Seb got 10 out of 10 on his spelling test, again! He worked very hard this week. They were spelling the days of the week and I even misspell Wednesday without the help of the spell checker. I am very proud of him.

The weather is beautiful so it should be a lovely day for a Fayre. Marc is mowing the lawn after getting a tire on his car fixed. They pulled out a 5 inch nail. Bailey ate one of my beautiful embroidered place mats that my mother gave me and we can't find Murphy. He will turn up when he gets hungry. The mountain of laundry is huge but won't get done today. Just another day in the life of our family.
