I did think I was back last week but it appears things turned out a little different and it was a false alarm!
I had great plans for last week as Mr A was still on holidays and going to be house dad while I got on top of things, made more plans for my business and got back to blogging. One small problem with that plan – while ever mum can be heard in the next room house, dad believes that this means he can come and go and do as he pleases and mum will just stop whatever it is she is doing and fix it (or feed it as the case may be with my children).
Our week then ended on a very sad note with the passing and farewell of a very courageous friend James – James is the son of Mr A’s good mate from school. He was just 10 and lost his battle with cancer having struggled with it for more than 8 years of his life. I do like to think that my life experiences have helped me to never take my loved ones for granted but watching how James and his family have fought this disease has given me a new perspective – none of us really know what we will be dealt in life or how we will cope – one thing is for sure, things in our house have become much calmer this week and the spilt drink on the floor is no longer the end of the world.
So we will see how this week turns out – I do plan to get back to blogging – my new calmer perspective means that I will not get stressed if I don’t quite make it to the blog and seeing as we still have a week left of school holidays this plan will be a wise one. This final quote is perfect though – just what I need right now.
