Life Lately in a List…

Wow… life has this way sometimes, of being absolutely insanely crazy… but on the flipside so slow… well my life has been both lately.  Not slow as such, that’s maybe the wrong word, but I’ve been feeling so unmotivated and uninspired for months… I know for a fact that there is a ton of stuff that i’ve neglected to blog about and so I am spending this post catching up on all of those things.

{one}  A few weeks ago I went to Preston to see my BFF Aimee.  She has been my BFF for approx. 14 years ago and it was so lovely to get away and spend a few days with her and her beautiful children (one of which happens to be my amazing Godson, Leo)… we celebrated the Christening of her newest addition, Holly, and we had some amazing catchup time.

{two}  I got tickets for some gigs this summer!

{three}  James and I celebrated our 7th wedding anniversary!  Can you believe that?  7 years married (a decade together)… to the wonderful man in my life and father of my amazing kids.  I tried on my wedding dress as I do every year and it still fits.  Ollie told me I looked beautiful and believed I would be wearing it out to dinner! We celebrated by going to the cinema and then afterwards we had an amaaaazing meal at Deanes Meat Locker.  I had steak and lobster! Wow. 

{four}  I enrolled to study with The Open University!  I am so excited.  I am set to study for a BA(Honours) in English Literature and Language, starting in October.  Squeal.  This has been a long time coming and something I am insanely excited about.  I’ll write more about it in another post.

{five}  Ollie turned 6, had an awesome birthday AND a pool party for his birthday party. 22 kids came to the pool to celebrate with him and I noticed an immediate change in him.  He seems much older already.  Time goes too fast.

{six}  After a week of coughing, little Nate ended up in hospital with bronchiolitis.  It was so sad to see him poorly.  We spent days (James spent nights) at the hospital and by Thursday we got to bring him home.  He still isn’t back to his old self but he is definitely on the mend.  It did mean though that I didn’t get to fly out to London for Britmums Live as planned.  So disappointed, but that’s the life of a parent right… things change at any given moment and I gotta be where I am needed and my littlest needed me here.

{seven}  I’ve decided that I would like to start running.  I’ve been walking Marcie for super long walks recently and I am really enjoying it… so I decided to take it up a notch and went out and bought running trainers.  I haven’t put them to use yet though because we ended up in hospital last week.  I want to train to do 5k and hopefully enter the colour run in August.

{eight}  Ollie had Sport’s Day at school last week.  It was a lovely day for it and he did so well taking part in all the races.  He isn’t the fastest by any means but he is the one child who runs every single race with a full grin the entire time.  Love him.  I can’t believe that he has just one week of school left of P2… and then 8 long weeks of summer!

    Wow a lot of stuff happening. Hope Nate is feeling better now. I remember the week Chloe was in the hospital and it makes me sad every time. Hard to see them hooked up to machines. Glad Ollie had a good birthday. I know exactly what you mean when you say it’s like he got so much older all of a sudden. It’s scary how quick kids seem to age. Good luck with beginning to run! It’s something I’ve thought about doing. I finally have the shoes for it, but I don’t think I have the courage.

    Wow, sounds like a lot going on. Sorry about Nate- glad he’s feeling a little bit better, anyway. Congrats on your anniversary… 7 years- wow! That’s a long time! Catching up with old friends is always fun, and something I’ve been meaning to do but "haven’t had time". I always just get caught up in something else, you know how it is when you’re a mommy. Happy birthday to Ollie! My oldest just turned 4 and I almost cried. How fast they grow!
