Hello! It’s Tuesday and I’m actually here on time. We’re watching the cat in the hat film at this moment, or rather the kids are. We read a Dr Seuss book together and then put the film on. So I thought I’d take a moment to write this. We will do other things later, which, I suppose is part of the beauty of home schooling, you can choose your own timetable.
I’ve been thinking, it’s funny, reading back on old entries here, I used to be so honest about things, about how I was feeling, things that were happening, about God. I’m finding it difficult at the moment deciding what to put in here, I think this may be because I’m feeling quite sad at the moment and still don’t feel right post covid. I don’t want to go overboard and do the too much information thing.. which I can be prone to doing. My head feels really stuffed up and cotton woolly (I’m ok otherwise though). My isolation bit ends today, everyone else seems to have recovered, the youngest is still more sleepy than usual, but other than that they seem ok. Chris is back at work. I’m glad it’s over.
I’m feeling sad because, like I said last week, someone we used to know quite well, or rather my daughter did much more than myself, died. It’s just so sad. There’s nothing else that’s within my realm to say really, I don’t have any other words in relation to it. If you pray, pray for the family and the people who loved him. There seems to have been many. He was only 32. It still gets me that one minute you can be here and alive and full of life as we know it, and then gone. I’m not going to say anything else about it. I don’t think I should or need to at this point. Apart from God is good no matter what things look like, always.
It’s really windy at the moment, we have yet another weather warning for wind and rain. I went up to the chickens earlier and the wind noise in the shed was amazing. I keep seeing adverts for hatching eggs at the moment and keep having to tell myself no! I’m not hatching any more this year, I’ve promised. But I must admit, I saw some chocolate brown coloured ones this morning and nearly lapsed, but decided to stand firm. We have enough hens for this year I think….. and I’d like to be able to go back to England at some point without worrying about chicks being looked after, so I will stand my ground! I think.
I don’t know when we’ll be visiting, but it’s been quite a while, so we’re due to see people I think. The only thing is I’ve got to sort a new passport for one of the boys with a new photo, so I think I need to go to a photo booth with a code that enables you to upload the photo to the online application. I think that will work, even though we’re in Ireland.. I hope so.. otherwise it’ll possibly be a trip to Belfast to the passport office. It will be nice to see England again for a bit. It’s been 2 1/2 years I think since I came back. So yeah, when it happens, it’ll be good.
So, over and out. Have a good one people!
