I've been feeling like absolute crap for the past few days. I thought it was just all the stress of the past few months catching up with me but it seems that I'm coming down with something as well. Sore throat and ears, the start of a temp and scratchy, puffy eyes. If only I could stay in bed wrapped in my favourite pj's. Maybe I will get a Nana nap later this afternoon.

Loosing a job knocks your confidence at any age, but he is strong, I have complete faith in him and whoever is the next person to hire him will not regret their decision.

We welcomed a new family member this week. A sweet fluffy little girl that has stolen our hearts.

The rain has arrived ! Hooray......

The school routine is starting to take shape, doesn't seem to matter how old the boys get, getting back into a routine after school break does not get any easier. So far though I have had a win with homework.....wonder how long that will last ?
