Today has been long, tiring and a little emotional… okay nerve wrecking and emotional! Usual school run and nursery run except this morning I rid my bike with my daughter on the front and my son running along with me. (I know, I know but I’m not always this mean!)
Yesterday I let him ride his scooter to and from school. On the way home he didn’t listen to my safety instructions and so he wasn’t looking where he was going, (it’s bad enough when he is walking) almost knocked in to some people as he was looking to the side of him across the road instead of in front of him at the oncoming road and although he stopped at the curb before the road, he only waited for me to reach it for him to scoot off again… Still not looking where he is going! (He’s usually smarter than that and that really annoyed me!) I warned him and he also knows I like to be able to see him so he shouldn’t disappear out of sight! Yet he did and was a fair distant away and I get way too cautious and paranoid for him to be that far away from me!
Anyway when we got home I told him because he wasn’t sensible riding his scooter he wont be riding it until further notice and this morning we were running late and I knew we could get there on time if I rid the bike… He was able to keep up and although he shot me a few hateful glances and repeated he didn’t like my bike as it was going too fast (I was going so slow I was surprised I hadn’t fallen off the bike due to the wonky balance of keeping it up at such a slow pace) he was all smiles and hugs when we got to his school as we ended up early and not late! Plus I have my ways of making my kids laugh and smile when they are trying so hard to be serious and grumpy hehe. (Children’s moods change so fast and often it can give a person whiplash!)
Continuing on… I dropped them both off and then headed home to drop the bike off and get everything I needed for the rest of the day… And have breakfast. (I need to stop forgetting to have breakfast!) I had breakfast, made sure I packed my bus fair, appointment letter, keys, phone, college ID in case I get a chance to pop in later to pay for the other course I want to do and some pocket tissues… I got to leave and then I realize I have forgotten pads… So I go back to get pads and then I’m off again…
I’m half way to the bus stop when I remember I never picked up any pain killers… (Great…) Also I have not drank anything yet… ( I need to stay hydrated!) Out of all the things I remembered – even making sure I drop off my daughters lunch with her this time. (Monday I forgot) I get to the hospital with plenty of time I try to find a cafe and/or pharmacy so I can get some water and painkillers… No pharmacy that I could see and the small bottles of water I could find was £1.90! (No thank you!) I decide to just go straight to go straight to the level I need to go to for my appointment.
An hour later, I’m on the bus back trying to get to my son’s school on time for the swim run. I get to the school and find out I have missed them by 5 minutes! I head to the leisure center and sure enough I catch up with them as they are about to head into the changing rooms (phew!) and the teacher is thankful I arrived and we get on with the lessons…
After the lessons and the walk back to the school I say bye to my son and his class and head to my daughters nursery. I pick her up and we walk home, just to drop the bags off and leave again to pick my son up from his after school dance club. We pop into the shops, head home and get on with dinner as well as a bit of tidying.
I’ve kind of rambled on and struggling to recap everything else today and I’m tired but had to finish this post before I go to sleep otherwise I will never finish! Thank you for reading!
