Lunch today; egg mayonaise (courtesy of Caroline's ladies) and chunky beetroot sandwich made with some uncut bread left from the weekend (well, it's law, you must have fat toast at the weekend) and a few kettle chips to finish off;
How nice!? I know I will suffer like mad in about an hour when my eyes are watering because of the heartburn but as it says above; I am counting the days now. Eight in theory but we'll see!
The girls returned to school today after the long summer holiday. The house is very quiet but Nathaniel and I have got lots and lots done. We have washed so much stuff (including some for Swirly as her machine is broken) and hung it in the garden, see now everyone is back at school it has stopped raining! We have cleaned the bathroom (including that bit behind the loo and the floor), washed the upstairs windows, made banana buns, made chicken soup for tea with the left overs from last night's roast, started the bread and left it to prove.
And I have managed after several weeks to contact the woman organising the training course I'll be starting this Thursday. I know the timing is terrible but I have been waiting for a place for nearly two years! I can work and co-run a support group at my children's centre as other memebers of staff have recieved training but I cannot go out into the community without this training. Apparently five years of breastfeeding (three different children) doesn't allow me to give advice and support. So by Christmas I will be fully qualified and hopefully I can give some much needed support to women in my own community, on my own door step and who knows where it'll lead me. Quite excited. Just need to not give birth on a wednesday night or thursday morning really and everything will be fine......
And I tried to take some pictures of my beautiful Y4 girl and her beautiful Y1 sister this morning but they seemed adamant that I wouldn't get a good one;
I do hope they've had a good day in their new classes and I can't wait to go and collect them later and give them big hugs (although Elizabeth won't allow this until we are out of sight of school) and feed them banana buns and hear all about it!
