If there are any benefits in being divorced it is being able to share the summer holidays with your kids dads – so after the last two weeks in 24/7 contact with them (yes I DO love them very much) they are now invading their fathers privacy and I am quite grateful for the peace and quiet I am getting for the next two weeks.
I do admit I had the best intentions for this week being very busy and active and addressing all those things that need doing around the house and have been waiting patiently for my attention for weeks (or months, years…) but hey ho I have done hardly anything other than work, eat and sleep. I also have to admit that I have been rather lazy on the exercise front and only been on two runs so the good work I have done over the last few weeks has pretty much entirely come undone in front of my eyes and I am rather cross with myself for that.
But then there’s always next week, so I think I’m just going to have just a little bit more cake to at least make it worth my while having fallen off the wagon. In my defense for my laziness – other than I completely deserved a week of chilling and Netflix – I have worked overnight for several days and it just throws you absolutely out of sync. Oh I did start sorting out cooking books (please do not ask why this is top of my priorities because I really haven’t got the faintest idea) and I have been quite ruthless with that. Do you know how many books about cookies I threw out? Seven. But don’t fret, I still have another half dozen that stayed on the shelf….
It has been really cute that my older two have been keeping me updated on their week by Whatsapp although it does still surprise them that more often than not they call me while I am at work and my older one even made a dairy-free custard tart with his nan and brought a piece round for me to try – I have to say it was absolutely delicious!
Here is to another week of silence and the cat overwhelming me with his love (he is such a little cuddle ball these days).
Much love marvelous people. Candidly yours, TC.
