Every few weeks my work/homelife pattern dictates that I have one ‘rest day’ and ten working days, tomorrow is the final day in this pattern and I’m bushed. In the middle of it I went to a lovely homebirth, once again it was a rush to get my gloves on and there was no time at all to call the second midwife, beautiful baby girl, everything wonderfully quick, easy and natural. Mum and Dad very happy with their third baby and her relaxed arrival into the world.
I received a Certificate of Appreciation from Tamba . It was because daughter had nominated me for it as I provide her with support, it’s my job, I’m her Mum and her children’s Grandmother, I should support her. Still it is lovely to have a certificate and, even better, it gives me free membership of Tamba so the boys and I can start going to a twin group. That will be wonderful as it will be somewhere which is set-up to cater for multiples, I’m hoping to be able to go somewhere with the boys and to actually enjoy myself and relax…..slightly!
Due to the glorious weather I have been able to get out and garden for a couple of hours in the evenings, such a wonderful way to unwind after a ‘heavy’ day. Now I’m just keeping my fingers crossed that the rain holds off until Saturday as I haven’t managed to mow the grass yet.
Tomorrow is Jack’s 5th birthday. It is terryfying how quickly time passes, I can still remember in minute detail the day he was born and I became a grandmother, it was the most emotional day of my life. Now he is a little school boy who constantly amazes me with his knowledge of dinosaurs and the solar system.
