Long time, no see

Hello blog-friends! I feel like I haven't blogged for ages! In reality it's only been 3 weeks, which in the grand scheme of things isn't that long a time.

Well, what have I been up to?

  • Work, done a bit of overtime due to staff sickness;
  • A few meetings in the evening at school;
  • Visiting a number of schools in the evenings too, Chatterbox is going to high school next year and we have to choose before the end of October. We've chosen the best school for her we hope. It has a lovely new building, good student care, good exam results and good discipline. We've prayed that we've made the right choice. God will protect her and bless her.
  • And then all the other stuff that comes with church and parenting.
  • Oh and I've been doing some drawing and sketching again, which I'm enjoying. I haven't had time the past few days, but it's been fun.
Chatterbox has impressed me this evening. She's written Macbeth out in a more concise form with some modern language changes. I'm so impressed. She's done this so that she can do the play with her friends at school. I struggled with Shakespeare at High School and she's mastered it at Primary School! I did giggle when she said, "Mummy, what are entrails?" Yuk, lol.

Squidge has decided to join the running club at school. However, it got rained off today. We've had some pretty wild weather today. The tail end of Hurricane Ophelia apparently. We've had, rain, wind, hail, thunder and lightening. Anyway, I can imagine Squidge being good at running, particularly long distance, she's quite wiry and never still. I was good at cross country in my youth and I'm wondering if Squidge will take after me.

Well, I can hear the hubster has arrived home from his music group meeting at church so I shall sign off.

Pip, pip.


  1. High school must mean something different there? Or is Squidge way advanced? She is C's age, right?

    Good to hear from you again.

  2. glad for the update and that all is well! :)

  3. Melissa it's Chatterbox who is going to High School, she's 10 and will be 11 when she starts High School.
