Thankful Thursday ~ September 4
The theme this week is Seasons. What a lovely theme. The season here of course is spring.
It is a big season when your son leaves home like Iris'. I visited my son last weekend, and feel I have made the adjustment properly now. It is such a big event. It has been 2 1/2 years. I was riding in the car over the ground where we left him all that time ago last weekend. The first time I was crying driving home with hubby and the kids on this particular roundabout.
Well I have been reading up on bronchitis, and I guess I had the malaise that goes with it. I get better each day I think. It is hard to do anything, so I do a small amount. I felt a lot less cranky after reading my friends new blog and things on Peggy's daily reads. So I had a nice day.
~ hubby got his hair cut which was hard to achieve, and it looks nice
~ I liked the version of carbonara hubby made though I was scared of it at first because of the green beans, it is lovely. Prosciutto Linguine
~ I was able to walk to school, I didn't have the car that day
~ I was able to pack for six people for a trip, I did it slowly
~ my middle daughter did well at a sports day at the regional centre, she got two ribbons, and got home in time to start our trip
~ absolutely lovely scenery
~ my last minute clothes dried on the line
~ middle daughter's new watch
~ I was worried about how I had organised the late check-in but it turned out OK I should have called to make doubly sure
~ second son was able to get his hair cut too!
~ eldest son drove me around in his and his girlfriend's new car that I hadn't seen before
~ I also was able to drive even though I was a little unwell, he told me where to turn
~ I got to go to an Asian food store and bought some things for the pantry and some Pokemon lollies that cheered up our son a lot
~ our son and his girlfriend cooked us tea
~ they took us to see some ducks and generously bought lots of bread for them, it was planned out very well and was a lovely place to sit
~ I got my menus made up
~ I got the fruit ordered
~ an email to middle son's teachers about his illness meant that they helped him which was nice
~ I got my car back, though apparently the fan may come off, so some investigating what the wreckers have needed
~ some costumes got organised
~ hubby bought some more food, just a tiny bit left to get now
~ I was able to get some washing done, a effort that both of us did
