1. I want to say that I am so over winter but then I think of the heat that is coming and I am scared. I definitely prefer cooler weather. So I am not quite enjoying winter (it is the coldest one if forever) but I’m not disliking it that much either. Lots of comfort food, layered clothing, series watching, hot water bottles, reading and lying under blankets happening in these parts. How are the icy winters treating you?
2. Child1 had a birthday yesterday and he had a FABULOUS time. I had to send cake and milo to school, my parents came to fetch him for lunch and birthday present shopping, we did a little braai for dinner and I obviously gave him the day off from all chores. I even had to run him a bubble bath! Honestly, he helps me a lot in the evenings. I was exhausted last night from having to do EVERYTHING! And on Saturday he goes to a movie and lunch and b-day present shopping with my sister. Oh, and I had to go to the bakery last night. Because he wanted cake for the kids at aftercare today. Eish. I think that this may be the longest birthday ever!
3. I have never had a party for Child2 and seeing that his birthday has always happened during the week, it was easy to just send cake to school. This year his birthday falls on a Sunday and I’m wondering if I should have something small for him. This is the kid who doesn’t like too many people in his space for too long. This is the kid who (when we are visiting people) will tell me (loudly) that it’s time to go home NOW! This is the kid who will go and lie down (or run himself a bath) when we have visitors and they are in his space for too long. I am not quite sure what to do for him. But I do want to celebrate his birthday properly for a change.
4. I am off for a spa date with some ladies this coming weekend. I cannot even BEGIN to tell you how much I need it. Really people, I am counting the sleeps already even though I am a bit nervous!
Anyways. How are you? How was your Tuesday?
