I am still not sure what went on at the beginning of this week, but I am happy to say that normal service has resumed in our Highland home. Normal being a relative term you understand. What the heck is normal anyway?
M actually fell asleep at a sensible time last night (i.e. before 9pm) and there appears to be no sign of the over-the-top sensory traumas from the past few days. She is happily playing upstairs at the moment, albeit very noisily and most likely not with anything that could really be considered a toy, but still. There was not even any fallout from a visit to the hairdressers (her) and the barber’s next door (her brother).
She is a little bit uptight about changes to the weekend routine as all 3 of her teen siblings will be away at a Scout camp from tonight, but she perked up when she realised they would be around during today.
Hubby and I are hoping for a weekend of calm, with some good weather thrown in so we can enjoy the 2 remaining children and maybe even take them out somewhere as a treat (nothing decided yet due to unpredicability of said weather)
Here is a wee picture of M at the barber’s yesterday. She didn’t present as anxious but there were quite a lot of people waiting and the lining up isn’t something she has done for a while, so I think in her own quiet way she was keeping control of the situation.
Happy weekend everyone!
