Emily is very unsettled at the moment, with family bereavements and teacher changes, teasing and falling out with friends, its hard to know how to deal with these things as they only normally come to light when she has been told off several times for being naughty or when she refuses to go to bed, so she gets disciplined instead of help.
The last few weeks have been so hectic I have had no time to relax and prepare myself. Rob's grandma died on Friday so we now have another funeral to prepare for and attend and family to support, the emotional is as difficult as physical. The funeral will be at the same place as my grandma's and probably the same location afterwards too, so it will be difficult to deal with coming so close after, only a month between the services! Rob and Emily went to Sheffield on Saturday to support his family, but I was not well enough to go. I felt very bad about it especially as we have spent so much time with my family.
One of the reasons I was so worn out was that I had a crazy day on Friday, with my audiologist here at 7am to bring my new hearing aid mould before he went on his holiday, so grateful to him, but meant a busier start to the day. Emily had her school trip to Fairburn Ings so had pack up to prepare. She had a great time pond dipping and bird watching and said they managed to be quiet, I must speak to the teacher see how she managed that one! I really wanted to go to my quilting class as missed last month and will miss next month, but it was very last minute that I actually made it and I did feel quite ill after, but I got most of the sashing sewed on. Just one more strip to cut for the top.
On the rest of the craft front it will be a quiet few weeks, lots to do, but no time or energy for it. I made bracelets for the teachers which I forgot to photograph in my haste. I have stitched a card for a friends birthday which I need to get made up into a card and get on with one for my mother in law, both their birthdays are in August and I am not organised enough. Everything else will have to wait. By the time I recover from the school holidays it will be time to get ready for Christmas, what a scary thought.
I keep getting requests for Linked In, so reactiviated my account, not really sure why as it is a business thing really, but this is me
Well I must go and get some rest now, its the last one I will get for a while as the children are putting on a show at school tomorrow afternoon.
I do hope to be able to post some bits during holidays, but who knows what the next few weeks will be like.
