Well kind of, I know I have been MIA for most of the holidays, and I apologise, did you miss me? (More than likely not, I’m not exactly rich in followers, in fact my followers list is kinda pathetic, but that is enough self pity).
We have been busy in the Roberts/Clarkson/Earles household. We had a trip to London (where one of my bucket list wishes came true), we visited several museums including Duxford, the kids and Dan went paddleboarding,we have been to Ipswich twice, we went to watch my little brother kart for Kartforce ( https://www.instagram.com/kartforce.uk/ ) up in Teeside (more about that in a upcoming post), been to the park, eaten lots of food, played out in the garden and lots of other things. Oh and I have had 2 bad falls out of my wheelchair resulting in injury to myself, and also to Colby, luckily they were not too bad. The fall highlighted lots of issues, (which again I’ll follow up in a later post).
Keep looking out for me dropping posts more regularly, I will post to my insta and facebook when a new post goes up!
Have a good Sunday – 2 days left until my babies go back to school – I am counting down, I love them but I need a rest!
Today my Mouse completed his last day in year 3, and my Moomin completed her last day in Year 1.
It’s been a crazy school year, the children spent January to April at home, and we had a few isolation periods too where they were home due to members of their bubble testing positive for covid. This has had an effect on the children (more so CJ than Moo due to his additional needs) learning wise, but they have both worked so hard.
We now have 6 weeks where the children are at home for their summer holidays. We have a few trips away planned, it’s Dan and Moo’s birthday (35 and 6) and I’m sure we will spend a lot of time in the garden (hopefully in the pool), going to the local parks, and in the back street with the kids next door and their bikes. The children next door are the same age as CJ (in the same class at school) and one year younger than Moo, and they get on great. We will also go visit my best girl and her mum (my sister from another set of parents) at the seaside.
Throw some ideas at me for good things to keep kids (8 and nearly 6) busy. I told them we may be able to make slime (but not bring it into the house), and we may go swimming to the new pool in Pontefract.
I hope all those with kids have a good 6 weeks – I might not have any hair by the time they go back to school – wish me luck!
