If we were having coffee, and really giant bourbon biscuits, I’d tell you that I’ve missed being a part of the coffee shares. I’m still not well though unfortunately. I’ve finished my antibiotics and I’m still coughing, and I have a really delicate stomach. I’m not sure giant biscuits are the best idea, but they are so awesomely huge. I guess I’ll be going back to the doctors next week.
If we were having coffee, I’d tell you that my daughter was “Star of the Week”, Seren Yr Wythnos in Welsh. I’m always so proud of how well she works in school. She’s consistently great. I haven’t ever had to worry about her performance, and it’s something I am incredibly grateful for, especially considering how much she struggles with anxiety sometimes. Little ones been pretty happy lately. I think the prospect of going to a new better school in September has helped her a lot.
Little one still wants me to call her little one here on my blog. It’s funny though because she isn’t exactly little anymore. She’s almost as tall as me and has the same shoe size as me. I’ve been thinking a lot lately about little one growing up, it’s hard not to think of that given that she’s going to high school in September (They start high school when they are 11 in the UK). The side effect of that is feeling a bit broody. I don’t know if I actually really want another baby because when I think about it logically, it’s not a good idea, I think mostly it’s just because I realise my daughter is growing up and going to be a lot more independent of me very soon. I obviously want that to happen, I want her to be strong, self reliant and independent, and I definitely, when she’s thinking about University want her to choose the best one and not settle for the one that’s here because she thinks she has to be near me for my sake, I definitely don’t want that. However, a part of me misses how she used to be so completely reliant on me for everything, and I even biologically miss it, it’s like my body knows something is missing.
If we were having coffee, I’d tell you that I did manage to get out this week, even though I’ve been ill. It was great because I hadn’t been anywhere except to the school for two weeks. I went shopping with my mum to look for summer clothes as I didn’t have any, and my little one needed more. It’s been absolutely boiling in the UK, it’s been unbearable. It was nice to be outside though and I bought some pretty cool stuff. The favourite thing I bought was a Star Wars t-shirt for little one. She was super happy with it.
If we were having coffee, I’d tell you that I have been making more friendship bracelets, but I’ve been driven to a halt by a lack of red skeins. I ordered them ages ago and they still haven’t arrived yet. I’m hoping they get here really soon as I’m making one for one of my friends. I’m still working on the bracelet post, it should be up this week sometime. Probably Wednesday.
So hows things with you? I’m going to go and try and eat pancakes and watch little one play Minecraft Story Mode episode 6, and the rest of the day is probably going to be full of boring chores.
Have a great weekend.
