Everything I love is associated with home. In fact, just today, whilst on the way to the hairdressers, and talking about this post, my youngest said 'I bet you wish you were there now'. Yup, he knows me well, it's our favourite place to be, probably all of us.
However, there has been more, associated with home, this week. Ajax didn't make it to school on Monday, well he did, but pretty much straight back home. Unfortunately he is too unsteady on crutches, we are all worried about him bumping it and he can't have his wheelchair in school (I've never really understood why, it's possible they just don't think he needs it).
So, for the foreseeable, he is being home schooled. I'm tired, yes, but kinda loving it! It's just so much fun, so relaxing. We learn at our own pace, yet we are getting more done, while enjoying each others company. Also we get to visit our favourite cafe, after visiting the local library.
(Can I just say, this picture shows something massive! He never drinks anything but milk and red squash, but decided to try this and, actually liked it!)
Also this week: My middle boy, my teen, has finished school! He's done himself proud, he's driven us a bit mad, but we got through it. That's the second of my children out of secondary and on the way to college, now we just have the stress of waiting for his results. It feels a little weird having 2 'adult' children, I don't feel old enough, some days anyway.
There's been some home improvements being made too. I've written up a 'Hinch' list (see her on Instagram, if you don't know what I'm talking about), just jobs I want to do around the house. We're also making other improvements, particularly to Ajax's bedroom. His bedroom still has the remnants of my eldest boy, plus some stuff we dumped in there, when the two youngest shared a room, after eldest moved out. It's time he got his own room, laid out for him. We are getting him a new bed, with a space underneath for a reading nook. I want to make it a more pleasant space for him, keeping in mind his sensory issues.
So, it's all about 'home', at the moment, and I'm loving it. I'm a proper home body.
