My Word of the Week
This week we had many plans. Some good, some not so, and some changed.
The kids didn’t go back to school until Tuesday but we had plans for Monday. First it was a hospital cardiology appointment for Star. Then we planned to have lunch in town and a little walk around the shops. We did have lunch but the walking around was abandoned as we all just wanted to go home.
Tuesday the plan was back to school. I think it’s going back after Christmas that I dislike the most. The kid’s have so much fun with all their new stuff and games and it just seems a shame that it all has to end and everything cleaned up. It’s truly the end of Christmas. The girl’s had a good day, the Little Man not so.
Wednesday, no plans, which was good because I was really not well all day!
Thursday it was time for another hospital appointment for Star. This time to see her neurologist. We’d made lots of plans on how we were going to pick her up from school just after lunch, then Graham was going to leave us at the hospital while coming home to pick up the other two from school. Then he was dropping them at my sister-in-law’s before coming back to town to pick me and Star up. It was a plan, but it was also stressful. Star was stressed about leaving school at the right time. I was stressed at being left alone with Star in town for nearly 3 hours, and Graham was stressed about driving in and out of town and dropping the kids off and getting back to us in time.
But, on Wednesday afternoon we had a call from the hospital to say that the appointment had to be re-arranged. After all that planning!
The change of plan had a big effect on Star and the stress ended with her not going into school on Thursday.
I’ve also been thinking of some future plans this week. I’ve booked tickets to another ballet in February, I’m taking my friend to see Matthew Bourne’s ‘The Red Shoes’ and I really can’t wait. I love Matthew Bourne’s take on the classics.
Then towards the end of the month it’s my eldest’s birthday. He want’s to go out for a meal as usual but we are having trouble figuring out plans. He wants to go out lunch time with the kids and in the evening with the adults!! I’ve asked him maybe to split it over two days as I don’t think my stomach could take that much food.
Now it’s over to you, what have you been up to this week?
