Hello Sunday and what a Sunday it’s been, a warm day spent for the most part home alone, I was up at 6.30am as usual and went for a walk which included a detour via Macca’s on the way home for breakfast.
I also have done a load of washing and it has dried on the line along with the load I did yesterday afternoon. Tim is at work he left around 9ish and will be home sometime after 6 and before 6.30pm.
It has been a nice warm day, just warm not hot and that I like, I spent the morning answering mail I managed to write 7 letters, the first one is always the most time consuming one all that follow don’t take as long as there is part of the letter that remains the same.
I didn’t have the girls here for breakfast nor lunch today, as I wanted a nice quiet day and last night and tonight are child free. I love having my grandchildren but I also love having days/nights without any young children.
Jessica has a habit of making me feel guilty if I say I don’t want to have Leo, saying that Leo gets jealous of Blain and misses me and pappa which is why I usually end up saying he can stay either Friday or Saturday night. She also says at times that she needs a break, I think bloody hell Jessica your a mother you don’t get to have a break till your child is grown.
I think my girls appreciate me and how much I do for them, I know when they have compared me to their friends mothers they have been shocked at how little their friends mothers do for them, compared to how much I do for them.
Mum and I have said no one took care of our children when they were young we just had to manage, when my girls where little my mum was busy working and so she was unable to take my daughters very often so I was just use to taking care of my own children. I also rarely have Kathy’s girls and when I do have them it is during the day and in fact only once have the girls had a sleep over at nanna’s.
We think that David, Sandra, Natasha and Jessica do not realise how good they have it with grandparents who are willing to step in and help out so much.
