Fridayyyyyy 🎉🎉🎉

I woke up with a spring in my step today!

I cleaned around the house, actually got dressed and put makeup on! Did washing and cooking!

I’ve got so much to do this weekend but I’m so motivated that I’m excited about it all! Today I did some gardening, some plant care and repotting. Planning to put some plants out in the front of my house, make it look all cute etc for summer. I’m trying to convince my partner to make a pallet bench to sit on so let’s see how far that goes.

My son has almost finished reading all his books and honestly buying them new is expensive because he reads loads so they’re either from Facebook marketplace or charity shops. Tomorrow we’re picking a big bundle of books for him on the way to our food shop. Obviously he would rather watch tv, play games on the phone or Playstation but he’s only allowed those on weekends. Boring mum I know🙄

Anyway the reason I’m in such a good mood is because SCHOOL STARTS MONDAY!! I’ll be skipping to school at 8:30am to drop the oldest, home, then back to school at 12 for the youngest boy, home then pick them both up at 3! Luckily the school is literally 5min walk from home. All this while juggling little madam and house chores. It’s gonna be a whole new routine but I’m sure it will be fine. One piece of the puzzle of normality in place 🙏🏼

Of course I’m worried about COVID-19! But I also know the kids need to go back to REAL school, not online or home packs. They need interaction with other children in REAL life and a better teacher than me🤣🙈 I’m not bad I think but there’s definitely better teachers than me. I totally appreciate all the teachers and their hard work and endless patience. I could not do it.

I need some REAL life interaction with adults! I don’t know how much longer I can handle this being at home with only my family . They’re all lovely and funny and very loving but 24/7 is long!!!

I’m off to bed to watch Netflix (American Horror stories) while sipping on some gin and sneakily eating M&Ms! Hope you all have a great weekend! The end is near🙏🏼🙏🏼
