This week has been dominated by getting ready for a few things, school, September and the weekend. I really do think that these past few weeks have flown by and I can’t believe it’s almost time to start a whole new school year. I’m not sure I feel ready at all.
The uniforms have been ironed, labelled and placed in drawers in anticipation of next weeks return to school. PE and school bags are ready for the new term, even the shoes have been shined. I do like to be organised about these things, I’m definitely not a leave things until the last minute type of person.
I’ve also been making plans for myself in September, I’m going to have a lot more hours to work and I want to make sure I make the most of them. It’s going to be very strange having the house to myself all day after a noisy summer. Chris is going to be off work for the first week of the kids going back to school so I have a whole other week to ready myself for the changes.
September looks set to be a busy month, the weekends are already taken up with birthday parties and days out. I spent some time this week with my planner making sure I had scheduled everything. I’m also going to Blog On so I’ve been busy getting myself ready for that. Working out which sessions I want to go to, what I want to get out of it and which brands I want to chat to. Even though I’ve been a few times I still get very nervous about going, I can be quite socially awkward sometimes. I think everyone is probably feeling the same so I try not to let it worry me too much.
I’m more than ready for a new month and season, bring it on.
