So this has been the first full week back at school for H. He spent the weekend with his Dad and I celebrated a friend’s 60th birthday. He’s been complaining of tiredness and he felt under the weather for a few days. It seemed like it was the end of term, not the beginning (after a long holiday). He missed Scouts because he didn’t feel up to going – I must admit I don’t really enjoy doing the Scouts run so if he doesn’t want to go, I tend to go with that. He seems to have bounced back now. I’ve spent the week getting back into the routine. Most things were back to normal this week and the last will slot back in on Monday when my German class restarts after the break.
I’ve done quite a lot of reading over the summer and I’ve somehow ordered a lot of books from the library. I think I may have overdone it slightly. Often that means a juggling act as I try to balance what I want to read next with what I should read next (books that I won’t be able to renew because there is someone waiting for them). Luckily this time I can have a free choice and I think it will be one of the crime mysteries that I pick to read first.
Back to school means back to countryside walks with a friend. She has more free time at the moment as she does supply teaching and it takes a time to gear back up after the summer holidays (teachers are presumably well rested at the moment and less likely to be sick). I’ve been back to yoga and swimming too. Although I did end up missing one session of both this week, partly because I had to fit in going to Solihull to pick up a voucher I’d won – £50 for TGI Fridays. I’ve been quite busy work wise recently too which is good, but does mean that fitting everything in isn’t as easy.
