Oh dear, I seem to have completely neglected to join in with Word of the Week over at The Reading Residence for some time. I had great intentions last week but then, well, life just got in the way!
Anyway this gave me the perfect work for this week:
Impatience isn't really a great quality is it? Having said that I have been feeling impatient for very good reason this week.
My twins have been as school for nearly two weeks but half days only. We are all really impatient for them to be full time - three school runs a day really breaks things up for me far too much and means that I don't get as much time blogging as I'd like, as well as doing housework of course, ahem ;) I think it will also be good for them, as they really want to be just like DS2 and stay all day.
Unfortunately, with the return to school comes the return of homework. Most of last weekend was spend being impatient for DS1 to finish his homework. I had hoped that Year 9 would make him a little more responsible but it appears some things never change. Teens, eh?
I have been impatient to start blogging properly again. The holidays gave me a nice little break but I really enjoy the quiet time on my own with the kids in school, tap-tapping away on the keyboard and getting my thoughts down. Last week it just felt a little too much for me to manage. This week has been better but I have loads to get down on here and not quite enough time - next week will be better again I'm sure!
It's Autumn, or Summer, or a bit of both, I'm not quite sure but I really want some crisp mornings and crunchy leaves to walk through on the way to school. My ulterior motive - a new pair of boots which I am impatient to wear with thick tights and skirts! Come on Autumn, hurry up and get here!
