hello, graduation week. Chloe finishes Year 12 this week. I'm feeling a whole heap of emotions right now, and I'm guessing she is too. Chloe, no matter what has happened in the past, or what happens in the future, know this - nothing will change the fact that you are my first-born child, the one who made me a mum. I am so proud of you this week, for sticking to your path, even in the face of adversity. It would have been so easy for you to quit, but you stuck it out. Enjoy the next part of the journey.
hello, iron tablets. It occurred to me last night that it's been just over 3 years since I went to donate blood and discovered that I was anaemic again. And I never did have the tests the doctor sent me for because I discovered I was pregnant a couple of days before. And I haven't been back to the doctor for tests since Sophie was born. But I know that I'm struggling at the moment, with motivation and energy. So I'll take some iron tablets for a few weeks, and visit the doctor for some help getting it all sorted.
hello, birthday cake. Well, birthday cheesecake. Douglas turns 14 this week. That means present shopping, and cake baking, and candle blowing. And lots of photos.
hello, card making. It's time to start making my Christmas cards. There's a few steps involved in the process, and they can't all be done at once, so I'll batch them one step at a time. [I love sending cards, and would love to add you to my list! Fill in this form if you'd love to get a card from me.]
hello, Monday, a new start every week.
