If we were having coffee, in a cloudy Wales, I’d tell you that we were really disappointed with the weather because it meant we missed the Perseids meteor shower. I couldn’t see it last year either, again because a Wales sky, is mostly a shade of grey, even in the summer.
If we were having coffee, I’d tell you that we’ve almost finished our school supply shopping! We have all the uniform, most of the stationery, and just need to get school shoes, which are always difficult, and some more pens. Getting stationery is by far our favourite thing. Lil one and I have a thing for notebooks and stationery, we can’t resist buying something when we set foot in a stationery store, so it’s a lot of fun having permission to buy all the colourful and funky pens. It’s still so weird thinking of my Lil one going to high school. I don’t think it’ll sink in until she has all the uniform on. She’s tried them all on separately so far.
She says she’s really excited about high school, and not too nervous, I, on the other hand, am nervous. I just hope it’s everything she wants it to be. She’s mostly looking forward to doing science and media studies. Lil One is currently really interested in video making, and has made quite a few videos. I ended up putting one of them on YouTube, because it’s so cute. She spent quite a few hours, planning, and then making a contraption to hold her phone so that it could record what she was doing. Here’s the YouTube video she made. If you have an account, it would be awesome if you could like the video and maybe subscribe? We have a few ideas to make some more videos.
So cute. She always surprises me with how creative she is, I shouldn’t be surprised any more, but I am, not only does she have good ideas, but she has good ideas about how to make those ideas come to life. Her work is always of such a high standard. I’m more of a, “I think it’s a good idea”, and then struggle to make the idea come to life, or it doesn’t end up as cool as it looked or sounded in my mind.
If we were having coffee, I’d tell you that I have actually managed to make a bracelet this week. I made a tiger for my mum, and I’m currently making a skull bracelet, but it’s a bit big to be a bracelet, so I might frame it. It’s looking pretty cool though. Here’s the tiger.
My mum loved it and was really happy when I gave it to her.
My week, has therefore been a much better week than last week. I’m so grateful for that. We are hoping to go to Cardiff again maybe tomorrow to try and find school shoes for lil one, it’s so complicated getting her shoes, due to her podiatry issues so wish us luck for that. How was your week? Let me know in the comments, or join in with the coffee share by heading to Diana’s blog, at part time monster.
