Happy is my word of the week.
It sounds very corny and after this where where we’ve tried to cramy everything in, I’m surprised I’m still feeling happy. But I am!
This week I’ve crammed everything in and it’s been a logistical challenge to keep on top of it, I can’t lie. But I did it & loved it!
I went to Mademoiselle’s drumming assembly where I saw the culmination of this term’s drumming work. I love getting to see Little Mister sitting in reception watching his older sister up on stage. There’s a real proud-moment-connection going on with them.
The drumming assembly was excellent. Mademoiselle is one of a handful of girls doing it and I’m so happy she she wants to continue.
I also went to the violin assembly, too. On the plus side they all put in a lot of effort… but listening to both classes of children collectively play the violin after just one year’s practise was enough for me!
I’m feeling happy because things seems to be settling down; I’m able to get time back on the blog and catching up with other blogs, which I’m really happy about. It still means late nights and early starts, but I’m feeling work has settled down allowing me to do this.
Unfortunately Mummyshire.com had a visit from some nasty IT bug that almost wiped my blog out, hence I haven’t been able to post for weeks. So I’m glad to be back up and running and sharing my #WordOfTheWeek !
I’ve also found a lovely, local Mummy-entrepreneur who is helping me sort out my wordpress/self hosting issues. So whilst the back end is getting an overhaul I’m going to take this opportunity to update the front visuals, including the way Mummyshire looks.
So, with every cloud, and all that.! My silver lining should be on display in about six weeks!!
School reports came out this week and I’m super happy and proud of both my little Shires. Little Mister passed his phonics tests, which at one point looked a bit touch n’ go as he gets so distracted in class. But he passed with flying colours. Mademoiselle continues to shine in literacy (takes after her mother!) and has really excelled herself in science and maths. She now wants to be a scientific engineer! Both were beaming broadly when they heard the accolades their teachers wrote about them.
Do you let your children read their school reports?
This week I’ve crammed everything in and it’s been a logistical challenge to keep on top of it, I can’t lie. But I did it, I got to where I was needed & when, and I have a flexible employer who allows me to do that!
We have another two weeks of total diary madness. Roll on summer holidays!
