So it looks like Spring got lost along the way? Possibly it was swallowed up by hurricane Irma. While I am happy for the heat, my wardrobe was not prepared for it. Well, actually, it was prepared for summer as a soccer mom, not summer as a woman who spends two days a week at a client office and sees clients at least twice a week.
I have also picked up about 5kg’s (thank you comfort eating) which means everything that is vaguely suitable for office work also shows my pretty impressive fat rolls. Why is it not as easy to lose weight as it is to gain weight.
Let us not dwell on that though shall we, let’s rather turn our attention to what is currently happening in our world.
Planning: Cameron is flying down to Durban, on his own on Sunday evening. I know he will be fine, he is pretty confident navigating the world on his own but I am still a little nervous about it. It has taken some planning to get this trip sorted. He swims a big gala on Sunday and his grade also leaves for their annual camp on Sunday, which is why he is flying down on his own, to meet them. Having kids is just one big logistical challenge after another isn’t it?
Watching: I am enjoying the British series on Netflix. They aren’t like the American shows which are a lot more skop, skiet and donner. I loved Doc Martin, Blackheath is a must see and Babylon was also really good.
Wondering: Where the year went. Cameron breaks up tomorrow which means when he goes back it is the start of the 4th and final term. If you have a kid in high school, you will know the 4th term is pretty much made up of exams and not much else!
Excited about: The arrival of our new baby. I keep checking with the social worker. There is a little boy who may come to us but it is a waiting game.
Accepting: Emma is going to be sleeping in our bed forever. She comes to our bed more nights that not. We try take he back, we try to not let her come. We do not succeed. So now I welcome her and assume my position of hanging the entire one side of my body over the edge of the bed.
