..and two steps back, nobody gets too far like that '...those words pretty much sum up my days and weeks at the moment :) Just as I'm making headway in one direction, something else crops up and turns me in the opposite direction ...I may eventually meet myself coming backwards! hahaha I also think I need an upgrade on my professional job title ;) it needs to be updated to Full time Mother and Grandmother ...and I think I'd like some extra job bonus's ...although baby cuddles are wonderful , I do think an extra bar of chocolate could help! hehehe
The one thing that is spinning me around in circles at the moment, is that we are currently in the final stages of 'transitioning' Esther from Children's Services/Education into Adult Support Services...she has 7-8 weeks of full time education left.... Eeeaaakkk!!! followed by 6 weeks of summer holiday....Aaaarrrrgghhh!!!... before she officially starts with her Adult placement. Naturally we are still awaiting on the professionals to organise the funding and the actual placement and with everything that has been happening with a new baby in the family I'm possibly not quite on top of everything as regards pestering people ...I may have to rely on some tearful phone-calls to get things moving :( I thought this would be a really worrying time and I am anxious about all the changes, but I feel more like I'm in some surreal dream and I'm numb and dazed to all that's happening. Fortunately we have found a really good service provider for Esther, a lot of our previous Mayfield-ers access their services, so there is some familiarity and its mostly little points that need to be decided upon, like transport, lunches, etc...... I know I'm going to fret and worry whatever happens. I'm especially anxious about how the changes will affect both my Angels ...Esther being apart from Miriam and Miriam from Esther...they'll no longer be travelling to school together, no longer see each other at break time or during school activities ...its going to be very different for them both ... But we will manage, we always do...I guess its just the uncertainty and the 'settling in ' period that are challenging, hopefully this time next year we'll be happy and settled and have ridden the wave of change without any worries :) ...fingers and toes crossed! :)
I've managed a little bit of stitching too... :)
I had a little 'win' on EBay ;) ....
This little rabbit also made its way onto my fireplace mantel ...
My Angels are off school for another week's holiday, I must be getting old because it only feels like we just went back to school after the Easter break, this holiday has snuck up on me :) The weather has been glorious here in Lancashire this last several days so I'm hoping it continues so we can get out into the garden lots. Jacob is heading to Madrid for a weekend break tomorrow, just to hang out and chill with his friends there :) Abi is settling into her own 'Mummy' routine with her cute bubba and Hubby is the only one that is working hard ...hehehe ;) ...it's a busy. busy, busy time for our Head Gardener :) He's planting and planning and has a big project with Britain in Bloom coming up so we may not see tooooo much of him this next week ....never fear I was prepared enough to make sure my hidden chocolate stash was fully stocked! ;) hahahaha :) :) :)
