    I agree about going back to school after the Christmas break it’s the absolute worst, it’s so dark in the mornings too so nobody wants to get up. The struggle is real as they say. It’s a shame the appointment was cancelled after all that planning I hope the new appointment causes you all a lot less stress. The ballet sounds lovely, The Red Shoes is such a beautiful story have lots of fun x

      We had the new appointment come through today, it’s later in February but again at an awkward time so we’ll have to do some juggling. Maybe I’ll feel more confident in my new wheelchair by then. I really can’t wait to see the Red Shoes x

    I always feel a bit sad when the kids go back to school after Christmas too. Our Christmas holiday was unexpectedly extended though as school had a burst water pipe which meant school was closed on Tuesday and Sophie went back Wednesday instead. Planning for Star’s neurologist appointments sounded stressful and how frustrating to have it changed after all that planning. The future plans sound fun – especially the ballet and splitting your eldest’s birthday meals over two days sounds like a very good plan! Thanks for hosting #WotW and hope you have a good weekend.

      We managed to survive the first week back, well two of them did, poor Star is still feeling unwell. I hope the eldest is willing to split his birthday meals, I’m still not sure why he feels entitled to two anyway, he does love his food 🙂 x

    Sounds like a somewhat stressful week. So sorry Star’s appointment was changed after all that planning. I never liked the first week after the holidays either when I was a teacher. Hoping for a better week next week!

      Well done on a good start. I bought myself a snazzy little planner (With cats on) to go on my wall and it’s got a calendar for 18 months. But I hadn’t realised it was so cheap because it finishes in March 2020 😀 Good thing is, it doesn’t actually have the days, just the months and dates, so I should get away with it for writing down appointments at least.

    After Christmas, return to school is always a struggle. I wish it was longer holiday. At least the day light is increasing. You had a busy week with all your planning. I’m sorry that one of your appointments were cancelled. Especially after playing logistics tetris and making sure everyone was going to be in the right place. Fabulous to have a birthday meal out to look forward to and a ballet trip too.

      It’s hard getting up in the dark, but at least it’s light by the time they leave for school. It’s been nice not have to worry about what they can have for lunch, I guess that’s one bonus. x

    This week hasn’t been too bad.. mine two went back on Tuesday without complaint. The best laid plans of mice and men as they say. Why do appointments always have to be at awkward times! I would be lost without the calendar and my diary – if things aren’t on there they don’t happen LOL

    what a shame Star’s plan was changed, she will have found that hard to deal with.
    I agree two different days for two meals is a better idea, love her plan to go out twice.
    I think being responsible as the driver would be stressful
