I love my boys, but I do wish I didn’t wake up to them fighting so much, however they resolved whatever their issues were and we were able to have a nice morning getting ready and being on time for school.
I phoned my dad as he is having his cataract operation today, I was 10 minutes too late to phone him but I spoke to my mum who kept me informed.
The walk to school was beautiful, the sun was beaming, I feel like everything smiles and feels happiness when the sun blesses them.
On the walk to school one of my neighbours had put a skateboard scooter thing outside to throw away, my boys eye it up instantly and when I said it was okay to take it brought them so so much joy.
They took it in turns to play with it to my eldest school and once he was waved off into his class my little one enjoyed it, carried it nicely in the shops and then sped off with a huge smile on his face to show it off at his nursery. Sometimes you don’t need to spend a penny and find joy, you just need to appreciate what is around you.
Walking home I decided I would nip into my friends and see how she is as we hadn’t spoken in a while, just as I turned the corner she was coming out as she was running late, so I walked back to where she was going and home with her, I left on that I would be her visitor in the evening for a catch up.
I had decided yesterday that today I needed a day of self love, I had planned on having the morning napping in bed but with the sun sharing that glorious vitamin D that attacks depression I lay on my garden table and napped in the full beauty of natures light. Listening to the birds, to other people and the sound of my wind chimes. It was amazing, until my cat decided I needed to be used to help them get up my garden wall, that was a rude awakening lol.
When I awoke I had the urge to phone my nanna, it was such a beautiful phone call, I always love speaking to my grandparents, since my uncle’s passing they are having a tough time which is of course natural, but they are such superhero’s. My nan is such a gorgeous hearted woman and my grandad is so brave, he has his hernia operation soon, I can’t wait until he feels less pain.
My mum phoned to let me know my dad’s operation went well, that he has a patch and will go back tomorrow to find out everything is okay.
I’m now tired again but I decide rather than napping I will do some hoovering in my living room, I adore my rug but my gosh with children it collects bits.
The school run and the sun is still sticking around, whilst walking to collect them I decided I was going to the shops and allowing them to pick their dinner because I just didn’t want to think about what to make. I told them they could have anything they wanted, even if I had to make it from scratch. They both chose a microwavable all day breakfast. I’ll take that!
I came home, I did some washing up, I made dinners, we ate the ice-creams that I brought. Then the boys decided they would like their new scooter thing red (as it was previously bright pink) so we painted this.
I have no idea where Jaden found it from but he found some face paint. This resulted in 2 boys with red faces, so much laughter from the 3 of us, Ky and I singing the umpa lumpa song to my littlest as his curly hair and red face was just hilarious.
And then a bubbly bath to remove all evidence of what had happened.
After bath time we snook up to my bed, it was near their bedtime and so with their onesies on we cuddled and they watched powderpuff girls and then a cartoon of the grinch before they both accepted it was time for bed.
When all was calm I decided it would be the perfect time for the well needed catch up with my friend, she has a new baby and things have been a bit hectic since his arrival, I was looking forward to his cuddles but he slept for the whole duration I was there. However we did have a catch up and I had a lovely albeit sugarless gingerbread latte.
Coming home I decided I was feeling lucky and would have a flutter on the online gambling, You should always make sure you bet safe, I rarely ever gamble but occasionally I will enjoy a go on rainbow riches and so I limited myself to £20 and won and lost and won and lost until I was happily content that I had played my leprechauns!
Now it’s 25 past midnight, I am still clothed and have the heater on my feet. I’ll be heading to bed soon. I am really starting to enjoy writing these days. I think doing this is making me see that I do a lot of niceness in my day.
Life is choosing fun!
N’night my petals x
