So it’s been awhile since I have been able to write… (And not for lack of trying.) Some days I have sat trying to recap everything but my mind has blanked on me… And also had lots happening. Lets start with today and I will try to get the other posts written and published by the end of the week. (Hopefully.)
So today started off good, rid my bike (second day in a row – first time in years) on the school and nursery run, dropped the kids off then headed home to grab my gym stuff. Walked to gym (bottom hurt due to uncomfy seat) and had my personal training session at the gym, then off to pick my daughter back up from nursery.
On our way home my daughter tries to walk in a puddle, I swerve her round it and I go to step over it… Suddenly she goes to jump in it in front of my feet while holding my hand… We both end up face planting the floor – I scraped my arm, grazed my hands and bruised my knees. – She marked her face below her eye, grazed her hands and bruised her knees… She cried and I tried to cuddle and calm her and I too felt like I could have… (I was hurting all over!)
Managed to get home, popped to the college to talk about my bursary – turns out I don’t get lunch money on my ID card which bursaries are supposed to offer… (Apparently they stopped that for over 24’s -_- ) My daughter was being really loud and getting antsy while we waited in the long queue. we then went to pick my son up from school. We popped into halfords for a new bike seat so it would be comfier but was too pricey then went to the shop. my son was being silly with his scooter and not listening to safety instructions, my daughter was tantruming and I felt so tired, achy and stressed I felt I needed chocolate!
I have not had chocolate in 3 weeks! We are in the shops and to stop my daughter from kicking off because I wont let her have an early advent calendar, I let her hold a teddy from a shelf… I get on with the bits we are shopping for and we go to the self check out till… She kicks off again and starts to try to kick her brother and the bagging area so i try scan, bag and pay for the bits, keep my son and daughter apart and try to calm her down without stressing myself out completely….
We then head to a pound shop to grab what we forgot and my daughter throws the teddy on the floor…. (Ah crap!) Just realized we never put the teddy back on the shelf before we left and I was so busy getting the shopping scanned and paid for and keeping the kids apart I forgot all about it! I’m surprised the alarms never went off when we walked through them! Now at that moment I knew I should take the teddy back to the shop and apologize but I also don’t want them to look at me in a judging way and follow me around the shop every time I am in there thinking I am gonna steal from them… But I am so tired and fed up and stressed out, my son is getting upset because he is thirsty and he has to wait till we get home and my daughter is getting antsy because she is having a tantruming afternoon! (Tired I think.)
We head home and I tell myself I will sort the teddy out tomorrow… We get home and the fire alarm is going off in the block… (It goes off often so unless we get told otherwise there is no need to evacuate.) We head in and of course the lifts have shut down due to the fire alarm going off and there is a fire engine outside and a firefighter working on the lifts and says until the lifts have been reset they wont be running… Lot’s of people are waiting for the lift and I don’t know how long they have been waiting for… I am not in the mood to wait god knows how long for them to work again and then wait for everyone to go first as they were there before us…
Enough is enough! I get my daughter out of the pushchair grab the bags and coat and fold up the pushchair and then head up the blocks stairwell. I heave the pushchair on my back and carry the bags and coat up all 11 floors of stairs! My kids do well to keep going and we finally reach our floor. (Finally!) We get in and the kids get changed, we have dinner and they go to bed by 6 pm and stay in bed and sleep fast… (When does that ever happen?!)
I feel so Knackered, achy, stiff and with all the stresses of today, what I need to be doing in terms of the flat and the issues I am having with family not to mention the impending hospital appointment I have on Thursday…. I will lay on my made up bed on the sofa, (kids are still in my bed while their room is paused on redecorating) and I will munch some chocolate because I feel I deserve it after today!
