This week is going to be a real test of my routine. My morning has already had to be changed around due to the kids wanting baths, late breakfasts, general boy shooting each other type activities. This has given me a chance to write a quick morning blog though ..In between dodging stray bullets and lasers and shouting “can we keep the back door closed please unless you guys want to pay the heating bill?”
Coming up with things to do with the kids, or mainly my youngest isn’t going too bad, especially as his room is clean and tidy. So far today we are getting the clay out and growing crystals. Also this week they are going to have the fun job of learning about budgets and the importance of being frugal .. Yes I am taking them shopping with me. Fun times for them, I bet they cannot wait.
If we get any nice days I can take them out to take photos, get out the house. Lots of fun creative stuff on the cards for this week, jewellery making, going to the museum and art gallery, and looking at abstract art for my youngest as they are doing this at school and he has to produce a piece of his own. I do want to keep my youngest in as much as possible.. Evil mum or over protective when it comes to his friends? I am not sure. I need to find some nice children for him to hang around with as then he may be able to make better decisions with things. He does know that until he can make the right decisions around the friends he hangs around with at school he is not hanging around with them out of school.
I still have not come up with any answers to my current career issues, the weekend was filled with tears, numbness and added tears. So today I am going to make a start on that too *sigh* looking for guidance I did a one card reading. It came out or should I say fell out on the first suffle pointing me in the direction of my dream..The sceptics out there .. Yes I am looking at you as you know who you are .. cannot understand why I reach for the cards after all “they are just cards” for me they are used as guidance, a little push from the universe in the direction I am meant to be in although today isn’t the day to sit here and start a debate into beliefs.The Dream would be the retreat I have always wanted to open. So I am going to stick to the path I am on right now if I can climb over the huge boulders that are in the way of cause. Which has reminded me about when my other half and I went to Edale hmmmmm is that a slight feeling of fight I feel coming back into my system? Shhhhh before it hears me.
Food wise, I have plenty of eggs so not only is my youngest going to be very happy I am also going to get the kids to do some baking, and my youngest loves helping me cook meals, which thanks to Abel & Cole is going to be made yummy. We had our first fruit box on Friday .. OMG blood oranges!! I had forgotten how nice they taste. So not only do we now get a veg box but also a fruit box, which we get on alternate weeks. I am yet to give these guys up, no matter how tight my budget is I feel it is more than worth it as buying the organic stuff from Sainsbury’s costs too much and the market doesn’t offer organic at all. I am having a few issues with feeding myself, as in finding the food rather than getting fork to mouth, I do not have good relationship with food at the best of times and when I do not feel as though I am in control of my life then food becomes the thing I control, mainly not eating.
Righty then, the war zone is clear, my eldest in the bath, youngest doing his washing so I have time for a quick coffee before carrying on with the day … I feel I have a huge mountain to climb and I cannot hide under Ned like I did all yesterday.
