Woke up to my alarms easier enough but body didn’t want to move. Finally got up but couldn’t find the clothes I was looking for. Didn’t have any food in so couldn’t give the kids breakfast or make my daughter a packed lunch for a full day at nursery. Left later than planned so it was clear we weren’t gonna be able to get my son to school for his morning club at 8am since we left at 7:50am – pushchair time!.
By this point I am getting fed up and the day hasn’t even properly started yet, It’s not yet 8am and none of us are where we each need to be… I really hoped the day would have improved for me…
We headed to the usual shop we pop in to for our usual quick breakfast… Chocolate glazed donuts. I then realise I have left my phone at home…. Damn it I need that… Dropped my son off at school for 8:15am -so the big clock we pass everyday says. So not too bad as he still get’s 15 minutes in morning club and gives me 15 minutes before having to get my daughter to nursery.
Off to another shop to pick up some lunch bits for my daughters lunch… They have no decent made sandwiches… I grabbed some clementines, my daughter grabbed a pack of mini cheddars and I grabbed a bottle of water for college… I feel I have the sniffles which are annoying when rushing about in and out of shops and I keep going hot and cold… Time to stock up on pocket tissues!
Struggling to decide on what to do about her sandwiches… So I bought a small bag of sliced bread and a pack of ham and fingers crossed that the nursery staff understand and are able to make her sandwiches for lunch since I provided what’s needed…
We head off to nursery… I ring the bell and while I wait for the doors to open I am being handed a coat and a hat and a bag form my daughter and I’m drying to stop my nose from running… Not what you need when you need to have a quick word with someone!
They open the door and look concerned for me and I tell them it’s been a rushed morning and that my daughter doesn’t have a sandwich made as we had nothing at home and the shops didn’t have any already made ones so she has bread and ham if they are able to make them…
Her key worker agrees and tells me it wont be a problem. *phew* I then ask for the time because I haven’t got my phone… It’s 8:45am and I have only 15 minutes to run home and grab my phone and then run to the college, get changed into my chef whites and get into my class for 9am… I have my doubts…
I run home with the empty pushchair and oh joy workmen are still dominating the corridors for the block but at least the ones that were on my landing had decent manners and held the door open for me and responded nicely when I thanked them. Once in I left the pushchair in my hallway and tried to find my phone… Where did I have that last? Found it!
Right now I need to go go go! For goodness sake! I have to wait for the lifts and can’t go down the stairs because the workmen have all there stuff all over the pathways to the stairs and at this rate I am gonna be late because the lifts are on the ground floor and I am all the way up on the 11th… Then one of the lifts go past my floor to above because more people one to get one from there first…
Once I get in and out of the lift and then swiftly head out the block and down the path to the college I greet the security at the college with a “good morning” and rush through the multiple buildings I need to go through to get to where my class is! – details on my day at college shall be in my next post ‘College Update (week 18)’.
After college I was knackered and in a lot of pain and very hungry… I got home tried a bit of everything I had made and scoffed the cake which was freaking gorgeous! Then it was time to go on the school and nursery run. It was now raining… The kind that sprays in your face with a powerful gust of wind behind it so your face gets drenched instantly!
I pick up my son and ask if the little so and so has said or done anything to him today and he tells me that she has not… I still give her my stern mum face because if she so much as looks at him in a certain way….*breeeeeath* I asked him if he still wants me to talk to his teacher and he tells me he does.
I go and have a quick word with the teacher but only to ask if we can arrange a point where we can talk about Leo and the way he has been feeling lately and the teacher was very happy to do so… We have arranged this Thursday at 4pm before I have to pick him up from dance club at 4:15pm.
Now that that’s been scheduled it is now time to go pick up the little one from nursery. So tired and wet and now running a little late due to slowness… We managed to pick her up bang on the dot! As soon as she runs towards me she gets freaked out about the glove on my hand and I have to explain that I have a baddie and she understands “poor little mummy” she says! Cutie!
We head home and I have to keep pressing my hand against different cold things to sooth it! Coldness feels like heaven right now! – you will find out why in the next post.
We get home and I flop on the sofa… Ahhh feels good to relax! Hand under a bag of frozen peas- and I am sated! I also got my refund and since I haven’t gone food shopping… Time to order!
After food and watching Netflix with the kids it’s time to send them to bed, read 2 stories and hook out the dress I am thinking of wearing to that dinner event that’s happening Wednesday – that belated Christmas/new years party that we are going to do by going to this five course meal and wine tasting event that will be held at the colleges restaurant. But only three of us are attending it seems ah well!
Now watching Tv and finishing up these posts before heading to bed… I need sleep!
Thanks for reading 🙂
