Let’s start with today then on to the others….
Today is Thursday which means I have from 9am – 3pm child free and get to have me time… I did have more housework to do but just enjoying how quiet and nice it is to just sit on the sofa watch a box set without having to pause and rewind and re watch due to the kids being loud.
I had a parents meeting this morning with my daughter key person at her nursery. All is good and I love hearing what she is like and gets up to when she is there 😀 I’m often being updated with what she gets up to with images and descriptions on an online diary of sorts which they update every time she is there.
So when I left I was feeling pretty good and was only too happy to go home, get some food and enjoying some me time. I mean come on… Priorities. I think it’s better to have some me time, unwind and do good for me mentally rather than get stuck in with housework where I would only stress out about things that would drive me insane because that’s what happens when I do housework and clean, can you believe it?
When I clean and tidy my mind runs through things that leave me feeling insane or upset or more stressed out than I was before… A lot of things run through my mind and I have to be mentally prepared to deal with all of it rushing at me at once… Mental, emotional and physical health comes first. Before housework and daily chores. To me anyway.
Other people may find cleaning and tidying a healthy release for them and feel it calms them and gets rid of stress but I’m not one of those people. So elation is the feeling that I feel when I have me time and it feels good.
Yesterday I went to pick up my son from school – It’s been raining for days so we are all soaked. My Son comes out and he hugs me, smiles and he is chatty and I’m loving it because the day before it was all the opposite and I and no idea why or how to deal with it. So I’m glad he is back to his usual self.
He has had teachers visiting from shanghai the past couple of weeks and they have been teaching them the way they teach maths back in Shanghai which my son has thoroughly enjoyed – he loves school and leaning and he loves all his classes. He eagerly told me that he was told by the Shanghai teachers that he has been the only one to improve in the way they do things and I am one proud mummy!
He then tells me he needs new shoes because the ones he is wearing have holes in the heels…. only lasted less than 5 months… So we go have a look for some shoes but even the “cheap” ones are expensive… £15 is a lot of money when you hardly have £10 but at least we know what size his feet are now. We went to another shop to try some cheaper ones but couldn’t find any… Instead we found some blue and orange Nerf trainers that were the only pair available and it just so happened to be his size not to mention matched his coat! He was happy and so was when the price had gone down from £13 to £6!
I have lost my train of thought haha ah well time for bed.
Thanks for reading.
