The word good pretty much sums up this week perfectly. The kids have gone back to school which has given me plenty of time to sit at my desk and work. Routines are back in place and all is good with the world.
A few good things have happened this week so I thought I would share those with you.
Jake went on a school trip to Imagine That in Liverpool where he got to make bath bombs and slime. He had a brilliant time as did I who had the whole day to myself. It gave me a taste of what life will be like in September when he goes to school full-time. I will miss his company of course but I can’t wait to have the extra hours to work, read and maybe have a nap !
Chris’s dad very kindly gave us a car meaning not only would we save money on road tax and insurance but we could also sell our old one. Luckily it sold quickly and we have paid a nice chunk of money off next years holiday. I will definitely miss our ‘Val’ but it made financial sense to accept the other car who we have named Nigel.
On Thursday all my kids were under the same roof at the same time which is a rarity. Scott is back from university for the summer so I invited him for tea. Jess and my grandson Olly were also due to come for tea so I asked them all to come at once. I made a big pan of spaghetti Bolognese and plenty of garlic bread for us all to enjoy. I’m glad I don’t have to cook for seven every day. Having kids with such big age gaps is certainly a challenge but it’s good fun too.
All in all it’s been a good week, the weekend is just ahead and I’m feeling positive.
You might enjoy my previous word of the week post, Holiday.
