Mosquito's... Vampires....Dentists...Guests maybe?
Would it help beat hay fever as well?
We're back from camping, as a matter of fact we came back last Thursday but the loads of laundry and getting the house and myself back on track took somewhat longer than I thought. I think I saw my kids wearing the same clothes for days (that is allowed when camping, as long as they don't smell...) and still that washer kept spinning. The temperature changes during our short vacation made us scramble for the heaviest fleece vests, hot water bottles and only 4 days later the kids asked for their swimgear. Crazy Dutch weather!
We moved 1 kid one flight down from the attic as we finally filed for a building permit for expanding the attic. Getting rid of the old messy chimneys, an extra window and a roof extension (surely not the correct word in English). All this means we need to empty the space and maybe even have to remove the laminate flooring..yikes!
Not sure why we always get busy upstairs when the weather is clammy anyway, but beds have been changed, rooms are in order and now I've set myself to the task of eliminating long overdue sewing jobs. I've gained some *cough* weight and eh... , something needs to be done.
The kids are on their last stretch in school, which means that the twins are preparing for the musical, the traditional fare-well camp, their 12th birthday is coming up at the end of the month. At the same time saying goodbye to their familiar surroundings by preparing their end festivities makes it clear that it is indeed time to think about diaries, schoolbags, books... The scary next school is coming closer! As a matter of fact they will have introduction sessions next month, but Wessel had his first taste yesterday afternoon. He is going to enter in a special English class and had to do a test. He was so nervous, all alone, no one he knew and no twin brother...
I sat in my car for 5 minutes after he went in and finally pulled myself together, it's not going to help him and the option of being a butterfly on his shoulder to encourage him is not open to me (see gaining weight and sewing jobs ;-D)
