It may seem like a rather dramatic title but that is how I feel atm. No one told me that when your first child starts school you can be in a daze for up to two weeks!!! I have never felt so lost. And actually being a teacher does not help ONE. LITTLE. BIT!!! The shoe is on the other foot and it was a little uncomfortable...hehehe. I am a bit on obsessive side when it comes to organisation and routine. Apart from bringing home a new baby girl 3 years ago, our routine has been the same for the last 5 years and now I am trying to squeeze everything into the hours between 8:30am and 2:30pm.
I used to clean on a Monday, grocery shop on a Tuesday, complete lazy day at home on a Wednesday, swimming lessons and lots of running around on a Thursday and music and catching up with friends (not every week) on a Friday. That routine is GONE...and I am struggling to find a new one. Abi and I are having fun and doing lots of girly things together but most days I am getting nothing done!!! Washing can still be sitting in the machine until late afternoon. Throw in the biggest heat wave we have ever had and I just threw my hands up in defeat last week.
This week I have made a much better start at our new 'life'...lol. My hubby isn't looking at me like I am going to flip out at any moment and the kids seem much less stressed!!! Noah is LOVING school...he has made some gorgeous little friends and he adores his teacher. He is NOT a fan of homework...lol.
I have a few projects to share with you...nothing new as Mr Mojo also disappeared during the last week but he is on his way home, I think ;).
These two LO's were from palette #43 at The Colour Room...ummm, hello, GREY and YELLOW...how could I not play!!!
And I even used the palette to make my little girls birthday card. That new baby girl that I mentioned above turned 3 on Tuesday....oh 'sigh'...where does the time go.
Thanks for stopping by. Hope you are all well.
