Yes, dear readers – I am starting on a Positive note. Not only did I manage to get up at 9.30am today – which is a substantial improvement on the rest of the week (apart from Monday, when I had to get up on time), but I have also packed up and posted all the blanket squares that have been awaiting packaging and dispatch for some time. So I am choosing to focus on the positives – I didn’t manage to get up when my alarm went off at 9am, but I did get up only half an hour later, which is good. And although it has taken me a long time to post off the blanket squares, I have done it now, and they are in time for the blankets they were intended for.
No1 son is in his final countdown before leaving for university, and I find myself with a bit of a lump in my throat at the thought. It seems like he is going such a long way away, and for such a long time (in reality, down to Reading, and for termtime only) – but I am very proud of him, and excited for him too. Actually, if truth be told, I am probably a little bit jealous too, because of all the great experiences he has in front of him.
