While darling took S1 & S2 to the movies this afternoon I took S3 to the shops and got some new crayons books and a water bottle for him. Well when we got home he very excitedly took them across to the bird and was telling him all about them lol.
The funniest part was the bird actually looked like he was listening and looking.
When darling took S1 & S2 to the movies earlier this week while I looked after S3 she sent me a text while they were out thanking me for allowing them that time out. It really softened my heart as expressions of appreciation are few and far between.
For me today a positive was a family outing to the beach with FIL.
We were going to have fish and chips on the beach but ended up going to sizzler then went for a walk after and the boys were able to have a play in a park.
I am grateful for the fact that I have recently found the confidence to get my motorbike licence and been able to afford a motorbike. This is a source of much needed self care time, most times I come back from a ride feeling less stressed and more relaxed. Doesn't always last so long but for that moment there is some respite.
Something that made me laugh today....
I kind of fell off my motorbike... it was in a parking area that was wet and slippery , when I put my foot down my foot we t one way and the bike went the other.. just a bit embarrassing lol.
Then I had to pick up a 200kg bike on that same greasy surface... but we got it up and on our way again.
Something positive for this week... We had family stay over which has been nice. Weather cleared for a nice picnic at a lakeside location out of town. (Darlings) Uncle and I rode motorbikes down while the family drove. Uncle had not been on a bike for years and from interstate so really enjoyed the experience and I enjoyed showing him some of our area.
While struggling in many ways at the moment Darling managed having visitors in the house with some support so proud of her.
