halfway through the term? but i’m not ready yet

1 Comment

another mum dropping her prep kid off said cheerily to me this morning “well we’re nearly halfway through term 1”. i nearly dropped harvey’s backpack – well it was very heavy actually. halfway through term 1? but i’m only just getting it together. we’re getting to school a few minutes before the bell (as suggested in the prep handbook 2009), i’m not frog-marching sasha out to the hastily and badly parked car, and then off to complete the 42 items on the to-do list, before rushing back to pick up prep kid 20mins later (well it’s actually about 5 hours but it seems a very very very very short day when the to-do list has 42 items on it), and throwing together another combination of pasta, peas, baked beans, carrots, and ice-cream cones. well not every day anyway.

friday we just had a quiet day at home between the school trips. today we went to the gym, played at home, had a picnic lunch in the garden, and had a yummy dinner.

i just need to squeeze some housework in there somewhere. oh and that TAFE study won’t do itself either.

  1. I'm still laughing at the pasta, peas, baked beans & carrots combo….one that has been seen quite a bit in our house lately too!You sound very busy & take a look at the size of that backpack!
