366 Project 2016 Days 38 - 44

Last Sunday, I was up early with the kids for breakfast and to start getting my bolognaise made for dinner and my ironing done. As much as I love a long lie at the weekend, there is a benefit to getting up early-ish when you don't need to do the school run. Miss C had her horse riding lesson at 12pm as she's been moved up to a more advanced class. She rode Jocky and he was raring to go for his canters. Miss C didn't hold on to her saddle once but she was bouncing out of her seat a lot. After lunch I caught up with Hollyoaks under a blanket on the couch and the kids played a bit of Xbox since it was miserable outside.

On Monday, I dropped the kids off at school and then headed home as I'm on holiday for two weeks! I got on with the first of many college reports I have to do and managed to get it finished before lunch time. I did some prep work for another two reports but I do have all week to get them done without any interruptions which is a big help! I picked the kids up from school and we came home to do their homework. We had fajitas for dinner which are always a favourite!

On Tuesday, after dropping the kids off at school and getting a shower, I conquered my biggest report on assessment and planning. It was supposed to be 3000 words but I did end up going over it a bit! It took me from 9.30am to 2.40pm to do, although I did have some short breaks to regroup and feed myself! Miss C and I did her reading homework when we got home whilst Z got on with his Math work. Husband got home quite late after being stuck in traffic!

On Wednesday, I dropped the kids off at school and spent the day just chilling out. I needed it after my huge report yesterday. It was nice to do nothing. I picked the kids up from school and got on with the homework. Z had to do some research on Tim Peake and Miss C and I read her book. It was lovely to see the sunshine again and it wasn't dark until after 6pm! Spring is on the way!

On Thursday, I dropped the kids off at school and met up with Miss C's best friend's mum for a catch up over coffee and toast. It's great that the kids have such wonderful friends but it's even nicer that we all get on as not only parents but as friends too. In the afternoon I had a meeting to do with my college work which went well and then I picked the kids up from school. I made some of my favourite pasta which you can check the recipe for here.

On Friday, after cleaning the house and taking the kids to school, I got on with some more college work. I have my graded unit coming up and I did some work on the first of three reports for it. The graded unit is really important because it is the only unit that is graded in my course and I really want an A again! Miss C had her best friend over after school. Husband brought us some Krispy Kreme doughnuts and a Chinese takeaway as a treat!

On Saturday, Z headed to Karate whilst Miss C and I went to do the food shop. She's getting very good at helping me pick out all the bits we need. After lunch, we headed to the country park for a big walk and to collect some bits for use on placement. We were knackered when we got home but it was so good to get out in the fresh air again. A doughnut was definitely in order!
