  • Roll on the new term

    I'm on the count down to actually being able to get some jewellery making done, rather than being the general skivy for my kids .....hoorah for the new term
    much as I love my kids ( i do love my kids , i do love my kids !!) i'll be glad to pack them back of to school and colleges , its one long trawl of clothes washing,ironing and tidying up after them when they are at home, when its just me on my own a quick whizz round in the morning makes my house clean and it stays clean all day ( well till they come home).
    I swear my kids were less hard work when they were little, least as babies I knew if I put them down they stayed in one place !!


    so roll on the new term and I actually might get my creativity back and complete a few pieces

    Oooh I hear ya there

    My eldest goes into year 9, and my baby starts high school this time, so we are busy topping up her uniform and getting all his sorted out.

    Saying that, I haven't seen them this last week as they they have staying with my boyfriend's mum as their grandmother is also there to see them (yep, it's that confusing, my ex mother in law, staying with the current one!)

    I do love them, but it's been great having the peace and quiet, though I am sure that they have sneaked in with their washing as I was still finding their stuff when I was washing yesterday.

    I do have the baby back home now though, so will be putting him to work tomorrow

      I work in a school and have been back at work for a week - now that cramps your crafting time! My youngest is now 14 so in the holidays we had days out and days when we did our own thing - bliss!

          New term

          My daughter is only 14 months but get little time during the day to get on with my work. She is constantly on the go and requires attention - I'm her little play buddy.

          The only time I get is when she has her 2 hour nap at 1pm. I try and cram as much as I possibly can in to those two hours - and it's not housework!!

          My philosophy is that if there is anything other to do than housework, forget the housework.

          Just think when she starts school, I will have so much time!

          Just kidding, of course I will miss her when she isn't around.
          Take care

            I also work in a primary school and I am back tomorrow although the children don't come back until Monday. That'll be me in school until we have a few days off in October for Halloween.

              I onlty have one child of eleven but seem to have the washing m/c permenantly full of sports gear and wet washing hanging around all over the place. Even my husband seems to be around the house a lot more at the moment so I can't wait for everything to get back to "normal".

                It's been a tough 6 weeks in wales. It's practically rained every day except the first week! I've run out of money too. And worse still, my OH is resitting his exams and, although he's renting a room the other side of town to get away from the noise (), when he IS here, he mopes around like a bear with a sore head! I feel like I've got 3 kids instead of 2!

                  Haaa I am glad its not just me. Cant wait for sensible bed times and peace and quiet on my days off from work. Although still have 2 year old at home who is potty training (and may I add girls are much easier than boys!!) so its a quick dash through the house every so often as she will not use potty. 6 weeks is far to long as they are always bored - nothing to do - well bl**dy find something to do is the usual answer. My boys do not go back until the 5th as the 3rd and 4th are teacher training day - teacher training they have only had 6 weeks to do that !!!!!!

                    I really sympathise with all of you . . . . .

                    And now I'm going to show off cos our kids don't bother us much now they're grown up. (Well at least in age if not mind!). Eldest is 25 and has her own place. Next one is 23 and works long hours and sleeps most of the hours he's not working and the baby is 17 and he's either out with his mates or in bed.

                    Don't wish your time away - kids are precious so enjoy the time you have with them cos when they're all grown up and making their own way in life you'll have all those beautiful memories to re-live.

                      how very true,reminds me of lovely poem somebody sent to me once

                      I hope that my child, looking back on today
                      Will remember a mother who had time to play;
                      Because children grow up while you're not looking,
                      There are years ahead for cleaning and cooking.
                      So, quiet now cobwebs, dust go to sleep.
                      I'm nursing my baby, and babies don't keep

                            Don't worry Magriet, your babies will always be your babies no matter what age they are.

                              Yeah and what's even better is they come visit with their own little ones - and take them home again afterwards!!
