The ‘No Blog’ blog………

Well, so much for the school holidays starting, giving me a chance to catch up on the blogging! Here we are,week five and I still haven’t started (well I have now but you know what I mean!) Any way, let’s get the excuses out of the way first.

There was the end of term madness (it gets more chaotic every year), we went to watch ‘Le Grand Depart’ in Yorkshire, I bust my knee (again), spent three weeks on crutches and am waiting to see the consultant (again), he’s not going to be happy! I ran (hobbled) a colour run while on crutches -photos to follow at some point. I’ve had lots of physio, and can now cycle on the flat (which is hilarious as Wakefield is as hilly as hell), but I smiled sweetly and promised to cycle on the flat. I spent a week writing a personal statement, I’ll tell you why if it pays off. We had a fab holiday in Ibiza (more to follow), a fortnight with no internet was bizarre to say the least and then I started to decorate the bathroom, which in true Dawn-style, turned into painting the whole house (apart from the cellar), by Friday I couldn’t move but the house looks fab!! So finally, I’ve got some spare time. In between the hunt for school shoes, when are shops going to realise that not every school kid wants to look like a TOWIE reject, and sell normal shoes, finishing my R.E planning (what do I know about Buddha!?!?) and heading to London to watch the Challenge cup final ( I hate to say this, but, ‘Come on Cas’) I promise to catchup.

How has the holidays managed to pass so quick?

Promise to get the blog back on track (again)

Bring it on!!

 

You’ve got to Hand It To Him………….

So finally I did it, took a break from the blog – Ok its only been a few days but having blogged daily for the last 400ish days a few days definitely counts as a substantial break. To be honest I don’t think I could have fit it in any way, in true Dawn style I’ve been busy, busy, busy. I seem to have got through loads of stuff yet there’s still loads to do. I never thought getting better deals on everything from insurance to the gas bill would take a whole afternoon, but it did -and that was just the quotes. Then there’s been the clearing Jack’s room to decorate afternoon -now the rest of the house is in turmoil. Add to that the start of Super League -another afternoon gone (wasted if I’m honest Wakefield were pants), the usual gym,swim and rugby training trips and that was another weekend done. Week days have been a mixture of going to work, planning for work and the never-ending helping with homework – just how many projects can one child get, don’t they realise he’s got a History test to revise for. So it’s official I am now an expert on the English Civil War. The only way I can help with revision is if I know what they’re revising about and as I seem to have forgotten all I learnt at school I’ve been doing a bit of swotting – it’s a good job I did. Don’t get me wrong I’m pretty impressed by Jacks knowledge on all that went on with Charles 1, but I really don’t know why he thought the Arch Bishop of Canterbury was called BRIAN…..Still at least he redeemed himself with his art work (he drew the hand)  -pretty impressive even if I do say so myself!!!

Busy, busy

Hoping to be less busy tomorrow

Bring it on
