It’s been one week filled with countless activities. While it’s nice to have little T home from school for a week, it’s also been a bit tiring at times.
I’m wondering why it’s been sort of exhausting, but now I know. Before she started school, she was okay with doing a few fun-things every other day. But since she’s started school, she’s used to doing something new every single day.
Before school, she’d be fine with painting pictures one afternoon, baking the next or walking the dog. Now it’s “What do we do next mum?” even before an activity is over.
On Monday we started it with a trip to Bodmin to get her new trainers. We headed to her gymnastics club next, where we had booked her earlier on for extra trampolining lessons which she loved! Plus, she and her friends earned their first ever badge!
On Tuesday, we painted pictures and put them up on the kitchen wall. Then took Doc out for a walk and used a longer route. Back at home, she wanted to help me with my chores, which was nice, except that doing the chores, suddenly felt longer!
We met up with her best friend F and his parents to watch Shaun the Sheep. She really enjoyed it. My husband said I laughed the loudest.
The next day, she had a play-date with her best-friend F over at our house. I can’t believe it’s Friday today. As I type this, we’re waiting for two of her female friends from school to arrive for another play-date. Then later in the afternoon, we’re off to Bodmin again for her gym class.
It’s inset day on Monday, that means they’re going to spend another extra day at home before going back on Tuesday. Phew.
What was your half-term break like?
