No not on a horse, but just getting back into the swing of things after Christmas.
This week all three of the children were back in school, for Tomas this means an extra full day at pre-school so he has been feeling a
little quite a bit a lot out of sorts come tea time, so there has been a fair bit of cajoling on my part to get him to eat his dinner and he is then out like a light come 6pm. But I think he will be just fine as we get a routine going, he does so look forward to going to pre-school which is always a bonus I think.
As for the older two they seem to have settled right back into their routines with no problems at all, sorting out timetables, homework and after school activities with ease, I just wish I knew what they were doing!!! Rachel has just had another super school report and Paul and I are so proud of her, this year is going to be a busy year for her choosing options and she has already started some of her GCSE'S.
As for Paul and I it is just a matter of establishing a routine, I use the word routine in the loosest sense of the word, as we are both at home we can choose to change things around if we want to. Although I would like more of a routine when it comes to the housework otherwise I find that things slip a little, so with that in mind and having been spurred on by Kelly's Clutter blog I joined the Flylady, and have started on my baby steps, so far I have shined my sink and managed to keep it shining!!!
Paul has been laughing at me because when I explained the babysteps and said this is great,
day 1 shine your sink and then
day 2 all I have to do is keep my sink shining and get dressed this is going to be a breeze,
you can imagine why he thinks this is hilarious can't you!!!
Saying that though there are some good pointers on the flylady and I think that I shall be adapting lots of them to suit our family home. Just think I might even have the last laugh on Paul too!!!
Right I must dash as I've just realised I've missed the beginning of Celebrity Big Brother!!!
I really need to sort out the WIFI extender so that I can blog on my iPad and watch TV at the same time....
