All work and no play makes Nell an incredibly dull girl (hence no recent blog posts!) I am LOVING being back at kindy and working with my own (not so little) group. I love the funny things kids say, and the infectious enthusiasm they have for life and learning.
In lots of ways it is like I have never been away (even though it has been 8 years!!!!) Where it does feel totally different is at home. In my pre-children life it didn't matter how late I stayed at work, or how much work I took home. This is a learning curve. Maddie is getting used to not having Mummy around as much. Mummy is getting used to washing on the weekend, and planning ahead for 4 or 5 people's worth of lunches each day! Next week starts my first week of serious menu planning (something I have never done but now have to unless we are to be eating scrambled eggs at least one night a week!) I get the feeling our crock pot is going to get a work out this Winter.
NO sewing happening as Janome needs to go back to the repairman (3rd time now - sigh!)
I have been scrapping in preparation for our big CM event of the year, Memoranza (which will happen next weekend)
I hope you are enjoying the cooler weather and getting enough "me" time!
