When Life Gives You Lemons...


It's been a pretty stressful weekend with trying to manically sort childcare for the kids for the week and for the next few months. These things happen and whilst it hasn't been easy, I know it will all be fine. It's at times like these it's really hard having your family live so far away. My Mum, bless her, said, "if I was there and I didn't have to work, I'd do it for you, no problem!" I did ask her if we could borrow Pops for a few months.

But it wasn't all doom and gloom. Zachary played with his friend from around the corner all weekend and Charlotte attended a birthday party. She isn't in to wearing dresses anymore and wanted to go in her leggings and t-shirt until I found her horse dress; she felt this was a good compromise. To let me curl her hair, she watched her tablet. You have to pick your battles.

The party was a lot of fun. All of her school friends were there; they bounced on the bouncy castle and ate far too many cakes and sweets.

I'm feeling more positive going into this week. I hate feeling stressed out and pessimistic. As Zachary said today, "when life gives you lemons, throw them back at life as hard as you can!"
