I feel like a year has flown by in a moment, so busy!! One thing i am really loving while recovering from hand surgery, is taking time with my children. My eldest is helping with cooking (saucepans weigh SO much), my middle girl is very enthusiastic with washing (the boring part - folding, sorting & putting away), my 3rd girl is my heat pack warmer & cushion positioner, not to mention vacuumer, gardener & puppy feeder, then my boy, well at 8, unless he can drive his sisters to school, he's just here for cuddles & dimples.
met with my wonderful hand surgeon, he's so pleased with the results & recovery, concerned about my numb left thumb, but he'll check again in 2 months. My eldest had a Moderation Day, where all the private high school children (it seems) have a day off school (year 12 had classes/ tests) & converge on every shopping centre in Canberra. I know this as i took my sweet teen to the cinema in the south, then shopping in the city centre, with a grocery top up in the north. Teenagers EVERYWHERE. While we waited for the primary school bell, we indulged in ice chocolates, mmmm.
Poof, my hands are aching, i really do need to allow 6 months for them to repair, no boxing classes for me!! I normally assist at the carnival, stop watch in hand, but it was fun to relax & be a spectator, massage my numb thumb. So happy to be pulling back on everything in my world other than my family, i love looking at their faces, they are growing so fast - how did i suddenly have a child in year 8??!! When i hug & kiss her in the school carpark, she still says 'love you mummy' ok, under her breath, but yay. Love Posie
