Sx and Gx sports days today. Gx did amazingly well coming 1st in the sprint (he was given 2nd place by the judges after a close finish but Matt’s video evidence showed he was really first!) and then surprising us all with 2nd in the 200m
Sx came 2nd in his sprint (To Marquice who ALWAYS wins!) and then 2nd in the 600m (again to Marquice). It was a really hot day in the end so they had reduced the planned 800m to 600m.
I was dashing all over the place as official photographer trying to get as many shots as possible for the school. Was stiff, exhausted and a little sunburnt by the end of the day!
Lx went into school today with a swollen red face as if she had a reaction to a bite or something. So I told them at school to give me a shout if she got worse.
Meanwhile the big transformation from long hair to short hair began in my kitchen. Sure enough just as I had a head full of foils, the call came and I needed to go down to the school to pick up Lx!
While Matt and Sx woke in a soggy sleeping bag under a tarpaulin and had to light a fire to get a bacon sandiwch to warm them up…
…we got up late from our warm duvets and had fresh pain-au-chocolats 🙂
I wrote up my college project all weekend and doing NOTHING fun with my children and feltlike a rubbish mother :(. On the +ve side I have got most of it done…
The only time they left the house was for two (TWO!) trips to Asda.
Mind you it seems it was an education to Duncan as we normally get online deliveries. He asked Matt today “so when we run out of food do we have to go and buy it with money or does that man just bring it on his lorry for us for free?” 😀
Today I had the lights on.
Surely thats VERY wrong?? (and I dont mean from a global warming perspective.)
The children had their faces painted today with Olympic theme designs.
Tonight I went out with the old Sema crowd lovely to see so many old friends and to have such a good night out.
