I was promised sun, lazy days and warmth… I want my money back!! It’s true there have been moments of summery pleasure but in all honesty they have been so sporadic I have barely got the paddling pooli inflated before the rain and thunder has returned to mock me!
Entertaing 5 children plus regular extras has become increasingly challenging so with the addition of a crippled back to aid my cause I have decided to up my game!!
At the begining of the summer I wrote two lovely list. Filled with hope and a smug sence of preparation I swaggered into the first couple of weeks quite confidently!
But it didn’t take long for my conceited persona to faid into a dim and distant memory! Having exhausted my lists, scoured the bookshelves for every craft book I could possibly find and baked my way to obesity… I finnally accepted the TV had a place. I big one… Right in the middle of my lounge with my childrens attention firmly on it!! (Why can’t they enage with me like that?!!)
Well, I’m ready for round two of ‘Summery Supermum…’ and I’ve got pinterest on my side this time!
We also have big plans for a very exciting Garden Festival to celebrate Mando’s 13th birthday. We had a Mini festival in the garden at the begining of the summer and it was such a huge success, I really hope it’s a sgood this time around!
What ever the weather brings for the last few days of ‘summer’ I am determined to make the most of our time, once we are back to school work we just don’t really have the freedom to indulge like we do right now!
So, tell me, what have you got planned for the next week? Are you going ourt with a bang or tailing off, clinging to the last shreds of your sanity?
