A bit of both!

I'm having to mash two regular posts together again, and I've totally missed out my 'top ten' post. Simply because this week has gone a little crazy.

So this weeks word is:

I am incredibly thankful for a few things, this week:

For my youngest sons teachers, who knew to contact me from a school trip, because A wasn't coping. They know I will collect him, from wherever he is.

For the NHS. The staff were so awesome with A this week, not only getting his teeth sorted, but going as far as cleaning his fingernails and his infected toe, while he was under general anaesthetic. The nurse that did it told me she had even sent a swab off, to save time when he gets his podiatry appointment. They were simply awesome, in every aspect.

For the end of an era. My middle boy spent his last, full day, in comprehensive. He still has to go in for a few exams, but he is done with school. I don't have high praise for our local comp, I'm very glad A isn't going there.

For my only time out, this week, on Monday evening. Where I got to sew again:


I made the polka dot over shirt, using the original top from this outfit, which was falling apart. I also had the sense to add pockets! 

Anyway, after a crazy week, I'm glad I still have things to be thankful for, I hope you do too. It's half term week here, so I can't guarantee that normal service will resume any time soon.

Until I can write again, much love.

  1. amazing how quick their school years go. Sorry to read you were not impressed with the school. My twin grandchildren do not go to the local school but taxi it to the town as DD1 cannot stand the headteacher.

  2. Oh no! I hope your youngest was OK after the school trip. It sounds like they made the most of him being under a general anaesthetic. It's good they could get everything done at once.
    It is the end of an era. Good luck to your son with the rest of his exams. My teen still has to go to school for a couple of weeks yet. She is dying to be finished school! Ahh! I don't have high praise for my girls school either. As soon as my youngest leaves it there will be a couple of blog posts about why they are not in my favour. x

  3. What a shame your youngest didn't have a good time on the school trip, it's good that you were able to fetch him though. My daughter had a similar issue on a trip last year and they were kind enough to bring her home early. She does have a good school and it's mainstream! I'm glad you have lots to be thankful for but I hope you get more time to relax this week x Thanks for linking up to #Wotw

  4. What a lot to be grateful for. Wonderful that the NHS could go beyond to help A and also his teacher. Hope your middle son enjoyed his last day. All change! I love your overshirt. One of the best things about making your own is adding bits like pockets. You do look good. #wotw

  7. I love your overshirt. I wear tunics all the time - usually with leggings. My favourite style. And pockets, of course. Very nice.

  9. Lots of things to be thankful for. Love that overshirt - what lovely fabric and pockets are always good. It's now one of the first things I look for when buying new clothes. Glad that A's teachers are so good and good luck to your middle son with his exams. #WotW
