It’s been another busy week for both of us. H and I have been continuing to struggle a little with the transition to secondary. Socially and academically all seems fine, but he is exhausted. I’ve been trying to get used to a change of routine. We are now very busy in the mornings with about an hour less time and more to do in it. Evenings are a balancing act between relaxation, homework and getting ready for the next day.
Alongside this I’ve been continuing to organise H’s room. The carpet went down this week which is the main change. In the background though I did an IKEA trip and took delivery of some parcels. I’ve said he can move back in on Monday, so I will need to do some work on it over the weekend and I have the handyman coming to finish off on Monday. It won’t be quite the finished room even then. It will take us a while to sort through which toys and clothes are going back. I’m hoping we can thin things out a bit. H has plans to start a steampunk collection of sorts and he wants to have some models for his room. I’m not quite sure how we are going to display them yet.
I’ve taken a lot of photos this week for one particular project, but I’m not going to share them all with you as I am saving them up for another blog post. Here’s one though. We’ve had to go back onto packed lunches because of lunchtime canteen queues, so I’ve had plenty of chance to make packed lunches for the post I’ve been working on.
Aside from that it’s been back to normal this week in many ways. Back to my German class for me and back to swimming for H. It should have been back to Scouts too, but we had the carpet fitted the evening that Scouts was on. I’ve been doing more on my newly extended fitness regime and this week I did a swim, 2 yoga classes and a walk in the countryside. I missed my second swim of the week because I had to take Mum to the hospital, on the morning I would usually have been. That’s ok though as I’ve set up 5 fitness activities a week, so that I can afford to drop one and not worry if something crops up.
