Today after work I went to visit little Snoops at the vet hospital. He is recovering well from the operation, no temperature or anything. But, he is not very well at all. His nerve that connects his ears to his eye has pressure on it and his eyes are constantly moving left to right, it’s making him feel very dizzy. As a result of this he is not eating or even drinking, he couldn’t even work out where the food bowl was in front of him. It’s heartbreaking. I wish I could make it all go away for him. Fingers crossed this is a short and temporary issue and he’s home soon.
Today was a mixed bag of emotions. Not only are we all tired, hot and bothered. I had to drop Snoopy off at the vets for his 4th operation in 10 months. I feel so sorry for him, the way he looks at me as I walk out and leave him. It felt so weird at home without his cute little puppy face. I know he’s not a puppy! Isla and Noah are excited that the week is coming to an end. One more day at school.
After work today Daddy set up a circuit in the back garden, he had a whole route planned out and we did it together. It included a little of lots of activities: boxing, running, skipping, mountain climbers. The worst one had to be tree squats, not sure of their technical name – leaning up against something in a squat. My legs are aching after that! It’s good to do it with someone else, it’s more motivating I think.
Selfies. We can’t live with them, we can’t live without them. OK, maybe we could live without them, but it seems that a second doesn’t go by without some kind of selfie being posted on Instagram, Facebook, Twitter – you name it! As selfies are such a common thing these days, it’s worth knowing how to address them when it comes to your kids. After all, your kids are going to be bombarded with selfies just as much as you are. What kind of people take selfies? Should your kids be taking selfies? Let’s discuss!
The children are quite literally wiped out! They sat and watched a movie with their dinner and they didn’t move, or speak. It was silence for an hour. Followed by sobbing and tears of frustration. The end of term is taking it’s toll on us Constants. Mummy is feeling equally exhausted.
Tonight at Beavers Noah had his first ride on a jet ski, I am assuming that it will not be his last! His little face when he got off, he looked so chuffed with himself. He has made some nice friends at Beavers and they do such fun, boy, stuff. Great idea. So glad we got him into our local group, it’s literally a minute walk from our home.
Noah stayed at Nanny and Grandad’s last night, so Isla and I had a girly morning. We watched Labyrinth with our breakfast and then got out into the garden. We cut the grass, trimmed the edges, picked up the rotten apples from under the apple tree, pulled out all of the weeds and Isla had great pleasure trimming back all of the plants that I told her not too! In all seriousness though, I am glad she is interested in gardening. It wasn’t for me, until my Grandad passed away, it’s a way of me feeling connected to him and Grandma – my Uncle too.
Today was a chilled day, Daddy and Noah went out for a bike ride and Mummy tidied the house (and snoozed). Then we had a BBQ in the evening with Nanny, Grandad and Auntie Rach which was lovely. It’s amazing how quickly the time is flying by at the moment and all of a sudden you miss speaking to people. Daddy made me some nice vegetarian BBQ options. I love trying new food.
Today was a lovely day, something I don’t do very often – had a girly day with Zoe and Dena. We had a spa afternoon and the most delicious meal at Quy Mill. It was so nice to chill and not worry about anything. I feel a little like my heads been spinning, or I’ve been spinning a lot of plates lately. So it’s nice to just let them spin without a care for a while!
Mummy forgot about the pool party at school today, the kiddies were not happy and I felt terrible for letting them down. So I promised them a pool party at home, complete with hotdogs! They were so happy. I got the brownie points back! The loved running through the sprinkler – clever idea!
