These autumn mornings are stunning right now. The walk to school is really pleasant and I feel energised after it.
I’m back by 9.10am, in time for AH to drop off M10 as he’s not going to school today. Apparently he woke at 4.30am and couldn’t get back to sleep, and hadn’t eaten anything. His head’s sore so he lies on the couch. Manage to get a couple of mandarins into him, then a banana. There’s no dizziness or nausea, which is good. He slips into my bed and drops off for a good hour; keen for lunch once he wakes and eats it all, even having seconds (well, why wouldn’t you … it was baked beans on toast, after all!).
I have to duck into work to pay wages and to the supermarket for bits for dinner, and he comes with – again, all good. He even made us go to a department store to see if they had fidget spinners; insisting he was fine and I wouldn’t get into trouble if ‘someone’ heard what we did.
I made a mental list of the things I wanted to get done seeings I couldn’t go to work. Didn’t even achieve half of them but might’ve raised the bar too high. It’s made me realise I miss having a weekday away from work. A day where I can properly clean (dust, polish, vacuum) and get jobs done without kids around. It’s [no pun intended] cleansing to have rooms decluttered and things in their place.
M12 and Ms7 get themselves home. M10 eats the same as them for afternoon tea, and wolfs down his dinner too. So the appetite’s not causing me concern. I’m hoping, after a good night’s sleep, he’ll feel well enough to go to school … but it’s AH’s day so hope he won’t have issue ‘working from home’ (he’s already organised the babysitter to be at his for the kids after school. Ms7 still says she doesn’t want her).
Mr Lee’s due to visit tomorrow. I’m actually feeling knackered so not sure it’s a good idea – hopefully will feel more enthusiastic tomorrow. The ‘agitation’ of the Zopiclone has definitely lessened. Also hope to get my real estate appraisal and advice as to what things I should do pre-sale to ensure top dollar. Looking forward to that, as I’ll forward it to my lawyers for on-forwarding to AH’s. Let’s get this ball rolling a bit faster 🙂
- M10 feels better;
- 2 bedrooms look spic ‘n span; and
- I had time to contact insurer, glazier and plumber to try and get the soccer damage to the windows and guttering done under insurance.
