Well I thought I had better let you all know I am still alive, as I haven’t blog for a wee while. You know how it is what with school, home and children, well they are not kids anymore, I should say young adults. I don’t get a huge amount of time for the old blogging! But as it is half term and peeing down with rain, so here I am.
I hate to tell you I haven’t got anything life changing or profound to say and this is unlike me blogging without anything interesting but I just felt like connecting with you!
Since I last was here I have seen the Olympic torch on the Plymouth Hoe a couple weeks ago. I’m not normally a person that would go and watch something like that but I went down to support My other half and ended up really enjoying myself and I was quite moved when I saw the torch.
My eldest is all loved up with his new girlfriend, so I have gained another teenager, she spends all her time here. I suppose I should class that as a complement.
My other son has been taking his GSCEs, which I must say he has taken in his stride, better than I thought he would. He is setting himself up to go to medical school. It’s all a bit weird really and it makes you reflect on your role as a mum when your youngest leaves school, doesn’t it. Things are going to change I think, routines are going to be different. When your children are at school everyday it’s a comfort because you know where they are, it’s the same everyday, but when they leave life becomes less predictable. So I think this is going to be a new chapter to motherhood.
Anyway, the little fella at the top by the way, is a fox from Dartmoor zoo. Foxes are such beautiful animals. Here’s a few more pictures for your pleasure, I always like blogs with lots of pictures to look at, probably because of my low concentration span!
Have a good day, thanks for popping in, and don’t be afraid to say hello! X
Another lovely blog from lovely you. Thanks for the peep into your family and daily life. Lx
Thanks for reading! I didn’t really have anything profound to say, but I said something! Hehe! X
Ah sometimes you don’t have to say much to say a lot 🙂 this was a lovely blog, I think a lot of people go through what you mentioned with their children. As the youngest child I didn’t even think about it when I moved out, but as the last one to fly I left the nest empty, takes some getting used to for mums after (in our case) 35 years of having kids in the house. Leaving school is step one, best of luck with it, to you and the boys! x
Thank you! It is a tricky time, not that I am a mumsy mum we are all very independent but it just the change that will be different! X
