A general life update.00:00
I haven't really posted an actual update lately. I did write about the ups and downs of September but not really an in depth update on us. So here goes.
The kids have settled in wonderfully at school and we're enjoying the school routine again. Although the boys aren't overly huge fans of the early mornings but I think they're getting use to them again now.
Harry, my eldest, is loving high school. Although one day last week, I got a phone call from the school to say that he has been sick and needed to come home! He was fine in the morning when he left for school but come lunch time was really quite poorly. He came home and relaxed for the rest of the day, had a nice long nap and woke up feeling much better! Thank goodness. I think the bugs and colds come with this time of year. So far, no one else in the household has caught it (touch wood - not sure if I've had it or not, didn't feel quite right Saturday but wasn't really poorly. Think it may have just been the headache thing.), lets hope it stays that way! I'm looking forward to open evening this week & meeting Harry's tutor.
Charlie and Ellie have both settled into school well, too! It's Charlie's last year of primary school, which is really, really hard to believe. I think Charlie misses Harry sometimes, since Charlie started school (6 years ago!) he has always had Harry by his side but obviously, Harry now goes to high school! Charlie has adapted well though and seems to be enjoying school. Ellie started in year three and seems to really be enjoying it! She's so pleased that er cousin now goes to school (started in reception) and loves to play with her at break and lunch time. Awww. I still can't believe Ellie is eight years old.
Me - I'm doing ok. I've had a headache for the past 4 days, it's not a bad headache, just a dull ache behind my eyes. It comes with having intercranial idiopathic hypertension (Gosh, that is hard to say out loud! And spell!) which I was diagnosed with at the end of 2010! I just get really frustrated when I have things to do and literally can not do them because I have a headache/ache behind my eyes. It has however eased off a bit now so hopefully I'll get some things around the house done this afternoon! I am finally over my cold/flu thing I had going on last week and the week before! Yay.
our kitties are also doing great! Some of you may remember that when Sylvie (silver tabby) first adopted us (yes she chose us!), my other cat Lotti wasn't overly impressed, I am now pleased to say that they're getting a long so much better now! They seem to have accepted each other and usually just avoid each other but its better than the hissing and growling at one another! Who knows maybe one day they'll actually LIKE each other and become friends, hehe. Neither of them are fans of the cooler weather though.
We are all very much looking forward to half term and Halloween and not to mention Harry's Birthday! How is he going to be TWELVE years old?! Madness. We need to figure out some plans for Halloween and I need to get my bake on ;)
How has life been for you lately?
