Day 27 – Sunday 27th January
Hubby was home today and while he made something to eat I started trying to declutter the cupboard in our bedroom. Our boiler is in there which is due to be serviced on Thursday so it needed a clear out as it was a dumping ground. So no real photo except one of Rosie.
Day 28 – Monday 28th January
Had a relaxing day today. Was meant to have my Quran class today as I can’t make it Wednesday but it got cancelled. Was feeling a bit tired and low so just chilled. A wordsearch book I had ordered for Bee arrived. She is currently addicted to them but she then complained this one was too easy for her!
Day 29 – Tuesday 29th January
Was meant to go kick boxing this morning but I wasn’t feeling 100% and then mum wanted to pop round to someones house who’s mum had recently died. She had flown out to Pakistan but returned a few days ago. Also had an appointment to cut my hair…..went for a drastic cut – before it was down to my bum…now its just below my shoulder. Head feels so much lighter now too! Bee has been asking for custard and cake and I just haven’t got round to making it so shop bought it was!
Day 30 – Wednesday 30th January
A busy day today. Had a governor finance and resources meeting at school today. When that finished I popped home for a couple of hours to finish tidying up the cupboard I started on Sunday. Then back to school in the afternoon for reading cafe with Bee. We made a Rainbow fish as part of the craft.
Day 31 – Thursday 31st January
Spent the morning at home waiting for the boiler guy to come service the boiler. Hubby ended up taking a day off work as someone had to be in incase he arrived at 8…..he did think about going to work after the school run but had a few odd jobs to do so stayed at home. Treated me to breakfast and tea from Chaiiwala. Was given a time of 8am to 1pm by the service guys. He phoned just after 12 to say he would be 20 mins…40 mins later he arrived. Just feel like the whole morning was wasted as couldn’t even cook as didn’t want the house to smell strongly of the spices before the boiler guy came!
Day 32 – Friday 1st February
My eldest had first seen an orthodontist over a year ago. They then for some reason said they would see us in a year but we never received an appointment. I chased it up a few weeks ago and got an appointment today. The orthodontist seemed a bit discouraging in the sense that he was telling her she didn’t have to go through with it…and if she wasn’t going to keep the braces in for at least 16 hours a day it would basically be a waste of time and the NHS’s money, saying she had at least 6 years to get free treatment. I understand that he had to make it clear but any nervous child is likely to jump at the chance to say no. I ended up saying no when I was her age after I had had the removable braces – I refused to have the permanent ones and my teeth ended up messed up…. my orthodontist I think preferred private patients as he didn’t explain the importance of the permanent ones and asked me when my parents weren’t in the room. I honestly thought my eldest was about to say no but she thankfully said let’s just do it. So they took impressions and x-rays and back in a couple of weeks to discuss a treatment plan.
Day 33 – Saturday 2nd February
It was interclub at karate…..Bee’s new school against her old karate school. She decided she wanted to enter. I wasn’t too happy about it because she hasn’t done much sparring since she joined the new school…and her old school focus on it at almost each lesson! But she was determined to go….I didn’t want to stop her but I was so nervous. She did OK, didn’t win but we didn’t have any tears even though she did get hit a few times….managed to get a few kicks and punches back. She got a medal as a runner up and for taking part.
