Bits and pieces

22 Apr

It’s been a few days but I don’t appear to have had a spare second to collect my thoughts, let along write them down in any meaningful form. Until now.

Last week saw the children back at school after the Easter break, M’s Learning Support Assistant leave, and her new one be introduced. I went to a concert with hubby, the truly inspirational and talented Edwyn Collins, Then I was singing with my friends in our wee choir at a choir member’s 40th birthday party that turned out to also be a renewal of her wedding vows (absolutely NO pressure there then!), the car has broken down to the point it can’t be fixed, and both my teen girls have been unwell.

That’s just the big events. Somehow we have fitted life around all this happening and all in all it’s not been going badly. I even managed to take 3 of the kids to help bottle feed some orphan lambs yesterday after a very dear friend lent me her “old banger” of a car until my new car is ready. M has been mostly calm; admittedly I have stepped up the use of visual charts to keep her informed of what will be happening, and she finds a lot of comfort in them. Even when shopping on Saturday she kept referring back to it as she knew after the shopping centre came the park. 

Here are some edited highlights of last week.



The very wonderful Mr Edwyn Collins. Not a great photo but the best I could manage in subdued lighting.



Me and my beautiful girls all dressed up for the wedding vow/birthday party



M doing what she likes best i.e. bouncing. Neat idea for a trampoline eh?


A “selfie” of M and me in the back of the breakdown truck (M loved this!)



Last but not least, the unadulterated joy on B’s face as he gets to cuddle a lamb.

It’s been a funny old week!
