The Game of Life

These past few weeks have been very difficult and challenging for our family, hense no updates for a while.

I won't go into specifics, for obvious reasons, but just a few things that we have had to contend with this past month are (in no paticular order):

  • Broken clothes dryer
  • 9 Bithdays
  • 3 Anniversaries
  • Pet illness and injuries
  • Human illness and injuries
  • A life threatening diagnosis
  • An operation
  • Extended family 'issues'
  • Stress/Anxiety problems
  • My Bipolar having a major flare up
  • Time and space dilemmas
This list is, of course, on top of the usual every day childcare, cleaning the house, cooking, schooling, finding time for everything else that goes with running a house, parenting 4 young children, and keeping a marriage working...

So, as you can probably tell from that little lot above, there has been little time for blogging, or anything else for that matter.

Things are still not quite back to normal yet and it may take some time to get there. Plus, lets not forget that the children break up from school on Friday (20th) for the 6 weeks summer holiday.

But today, right now, I am happy that I have managed to get the 3 girls to their schools on time, have cleaned the downstairs of the house and hung a load of laundry up to dry (indoors, as outside looks like rain, again)

And I have managed to do this quick post, and now I am off to toddler group with little Che. x

How is July going for you so far?
