The Week That Was #12

Last Sunday, it was Mother's Day. I got a cup of tea in bed and lovely cards from Z and Miss C. Husband got them their breakfast which meant I got a little bit extra time in bed. I took Miss C to horse riding where she did a fantastic job brushing and then riding Jock. We left horse riding and headed straight to Z's karate competition. He was in a new category with boys who are much better than he is and he knew it. He didn't win any of his fights but he did well at making the boys work for their points. We chilled out for a few hours at home and then headed to swimming lessons. After swimming lessons, we headed out for dinner to our favourite Italian restaurant.

On Monday, it was back to school and college for us. I had a busy day of planning reports and reading guidelines on legislation. Thankfully the day went in fast. I picked the kids up from Z's friend's house and Miss C showed me her monkey she got from her boyfriend at school. She looked very chuffed with it.

On Tuesday, I had an exam at college. I think it went OK but I probably won't find out how I did until next week. I picked the kids up from my friend's house after college to find Miss C had managed to fall again at school and scraped her knee. Later on, whilst playing football outside, Z managed to trip up and bash both of his knees. It was a day for injuries in our household it seemed.

On Wednesday, I finished placement early to go to Miss C's share the learning day at school. The children got to show their parents their Fairyland topic. They were able to make masks, crowns and finger puppets. They could play with LEGO to build their own castles and they could draw pictures from the story of The Three Little Pigs. It was really fun and Miss C loves showing her Papa and I around the class. It was a beautiful day and the kids chose to play outside when they got home. Miss C was feeling optimistic about the weather and wore her shorts and t-shirt! It wasn't that warm!

On Thursday, it was day two of placement and it went it pretty quickly. When I got home, I cleaned the windows whilst waiting for the kids to arrive. We then took the car to get washed. The kids had macaroni for dinner whilst I had a bowl of cereal to keep me going until Husband came in with Chinese food. Miss C was feeling hungry as she had two bowls of macaroni, 2 yogurts and a slice of toast with jam.

On Friday, after dropping the kids off at school, I headed to the shops. I missed the eclipse because I was inside but it was also far too cloudy where we were to see anything. After a morning and afternoon of college work, I headed to school to pick up the kids. Miss C was having her friend over so we stopped off at the park on the way home so they could play. They had chicken dippers and chips for tea and then played outside in the garden.

On Saturday, it was a beautiful day. We dropped Z off at Karate and headed to the shops to get some bits. After lunch, with the washing hung outside to dry, we headed to the park to play and feed the ducks. Z called in for one of his friends and they played football together whilst Miss C played on the swings and slide. Z headed off with Husband to town to get a haircut and Miss C and I stayed on at the park for a little while longer. It was so good to be outdoors and enjoying the sunshine.
