So today I ran a 5k fun run… The Color Run to be exact and it was amazing. But in this very instant, the thing I am most looking forward to is eating a huge dinner and then sleeping a long sleep. That’s the immediate future.
Apart from food and sleep… I am really looking forward to Ollie going back to school. Don’t get me wrong, I adore the bones of that kid and have enjoyed our summer together, but time is going on, weather isn’t great…. and he has so much ENERGY!!! I think we must be one of the only places that have summer breaks that last for 9 weeks. It’s too long in my opinion. 4 or 5 would suffice don’t you think? 4 or 5 for summer and add an extra week to Halloween break and another to Christmas break. 9 weeks of finding things all day every day to occupy this little dude who is used to having every moment of the day catered for him at school. “Mummy I am bored”, “Can I buy this?”, “Can I have a snack?” (that last one gets said about 25 times a day!). I love him to pieces but he needs so much more mental stimulation than I can give. He is excited too, about going back to school and we have really enjoyed the weeks we have had together including our little trip away to Scotland.
