I feel like I've been missing in action lately. The kids are on hols at the moment (still 2 weeks to go - much as it is good - and easy- to have them home, I'm ready for them to be back in school..) and my life seems to be driving Meaghan all around the countryside. So far since Thursday she has been at three separate sleepovers, two that were out of town on farms, and been to two movies, ice skating, horse riding and bowling today as well as some babysitting.
I only vaguely remember when she lived at home, she spends her time on catch up sleep when she is home now!! Anyway she loves her social life but school will be a nice rest for her (if only that was a joke..).
And this is my new reality - packing boxes-
I am currently feeling a bit overwhelmed by the amount of junk we have and that I have to sort through in the next 6 weeks. eep.
After preparing for delays as all building projects are (hey, we watch Grand Designs addictively) apparently we have gotten from initial meeting to submitting plans in record time so instead of an initial starting time (ie tearing house down) at the end of april, may, june, sometime, now it is whenever we can get out of the house. Ok, hyperventilating...
Anyway the bonus of cleaning is finding unexpected treasures like this note I found that Meaghan had written to Henry. I suspect that any note written today would have a slightly different message...
Such a little note but it made me smile for the rest of the day. So I thought it was worthy of inclusion on a Lo and the message is simple but happy so I am entering it in Scrap Fit's challenge this week. (not the best photo of a LO, sorry)And I have discovered that I have very few photos of Henry and Meaghan together when she wrote this note. Any photos at this age are Henry watching Meaghan, learning and copying her. Sweet but not suitable for the note. By the way i have a gazillion photos of Matt and Henry together but Matt's handwriting is unreadable and as such he doesn't do notes (and he is male as well..).
Ok, having said how I haven't had time for crafting, I have managed to get a bit of reading done. The pick of my summer reading has been The Five People You Meet in Heaven by Mitch Albom.
I could not put it down, cannot recommend it highly enough and I dropped a tear or two at the end (in a good way). Love finding books like that.
Long rambling post, unlike me I know (HA!!) back to packing now, have a good week. xx
