Everything is feeling a little bit crazy again in the world of the Driver’s.
The Husband is so bloody busy that he doesn’t know his arse from his elbow. He’s stacked out with design work for at least the next six months. He may be bloody busy but he’s got a twinkle in his eye again.
Someone else who is twinkling at the moment is The 5 Year Old. Firstly, she got a glowing report at parent’s evening last week and, secondly, managed to swim a length of the pool without armbands … thanks to Gramps and his swimming lessons! We go to Italy during Spring Break so it will be nice to see her swimming unaided.
Our Landlord wants to sell the house, so in 4 months we will be moving AGAIN, this time to a house where we will be staying for a looooong time. I am planning a huge clutter cull which means I’ll be spending hours uploading things onto ebay.
First thing that might go on ebay is The Car which is still very poorly … we are having to charge the battery before any trips and then wait for the engine to cut out long after the keys have been taken out of the ignition.
I’m quite enjoying walking to school and work … when it’s not raining. The children, however, are losing their enthusiasm for walking to school …
… particularly The 4 year old who has fully recovered from the chicken pox but is deaf again. He had grommets fitted last year and they fell out into his ear canal just after Christmas. Now it seems they have somehow made their way back to where they were but he can’t hear anything. I find myself talking to him both loud and slowly. The next step is a hearing test to confirm what we already know and then I imagine some sort of operation to either replace or correct his grommets. In the meantime he has to struggle on in his own little hard of hearing bubble.
The Dog hasn’t been sick recently and seems to have stopped moulting, which is a vast improvement on recent months.
Me? I’m looking forward to Easter. We’re going up to Scotland for Easter where we will be doing our family egg roll. I have been practicing and think that I stand a chance of bringing the Egg Rolling Championship Cup home. Who am I kidding?
I am feeling the need for a wee blogoliday to do some reading in the bath. I’m currently reading Half of a Yellow Sun. It’s the sort of book that I can’t put down and I don’t want it to end.
I also need to catch up on lots of little jobs; I have some writing commitments that have fallen by the wayside but I need to catch up on self preservation mainly … if you could see my unruly eyebrows you’d be worried.
Let’s not speak of any other ‘hairy’ areas.
So I shall see you all next week. Have a good weekend people!
