I must confess…the day I forgot to write my confession

There is delicious irony in this week’s prompt, “the day I forgot…”.

Because I forgot to pre-write my post and pre-record my video during the week (as normal) so I’m scrambling now to get something together for you at the last minute.

So it’s safe to assume there is no video this week…

You must know it’s been a big week and weekend for us all.

Due to the Easter long weekend it was a short week which began with Gilbert’s birthday and ended with his long-awaited sleepover. In between we celebrated Delilah losing her second tooth and receiving a medal at gymnastics (and moving up to the next group); there were a few days there where Matilda was not well; and there were the normal speech therapy and physio appointments as well as a hairdressing visit too.

The tooth that seemed to gross a few of my friends out (but it’s so tiny!)

I was also preoccupied with getting ready for World Autism Awareness Day on April 2 (a big day for us) and getting the family ready for our first ever parkrun together on Saturday morning.

BTW if you haven’t heard I’ve committed to walking 15,00 steps for the next week to raise $1000 for Autism Spectrum Australia (ASPECT). I’ve committed to walking this amount each day, even with my dodgy knee. Will you help me reach my goal? Every little bit helps.

And on top of all that, there were a list of jobs that needed to be done prior to Gilbert’s big birthday event on Saturday night.

The sleepover involved 18 hours, 11 boys, hundreds of snacks, millions of drinks and a bazillion calls for calm and quiet. The boys all had fun and came away unscathed so it was a success. But there wasn’t a lot of sleep had by anyone at all and I’ve truly forgotten how difficult it is to function without sleep.

So here’s my sad excuse for a post due to my crazy busy week and the fact I forgot that I had to write it at all!

  1. So I read things wrong last night — I read the prompt for March on best advice and was going to link up an old post. Then read your post and wondered why you were talking about forgetting things! I need a break — I’m confusing my months.

    Glad to hear the sleepover went well — 11 boys! Wow! I’d forget my name if I had to monitor that.

    Have a great week Kirsty!

  2. How funny…I was only thinking last night as I completed my post “gee I wonder how Kirsty’s going?” when I realised it had been a huge week for you as well as a sleepover. Really glad it went well..but what were you thinking LOL…DLS ends and a sleepover! I feel hungover from the change! Happy week ahead. Denyse

      I know – trust me to pick literally the longest night of the year to host 11 boys! And I have to thank you too for your beautiful postcard. I received it last week but haven’t had the chance to acknowledge it – thank you so much x

  3. I was lucky today as my teen wrote my post this week – ahhh just chill time for me. I find as soon as I am out of routine, everything falls out of routine.

    • Kirsty says:

      I think I need to cultivate Gilbert’s writing talent – I could use a helper here too! BTW Ashlea’s post was great – she’s a great writer x

    Sleepovers sound like hell haha.

  5. I’m not sure why they call them sleepovers, there is practically no sleep involved. I’ve had a massive weekend and my confession, although drafted in my head wasn’t completed until about 2 am this morning. Of course then I completely forgot about day light savings ending and set the alarm too early then slept through the next alarm.

  6. Deborah says:

    It has been a huge week for you – and the public holidays (and school holidays here) also throw me. I only work part-time so had no extra days off but when others are around I assume it’s still the weekend. When it’s not.

    I’ve joined in for the first time!!!

    I do forget Wordless Wednesday. I’m glad I’m not alone.
    I donated and I know you’ll smash this .

    Ummm, dude…. You could have left that at “we had a sleepover for 11 boys” and we would have forgiven you for a month of forgotten posts. Kudos to you!

    • Kirsty says:

      Hahaha! I actually received a gift from one of the boy’s families – they were in awe that we did it at all. I’m think I’m going to ride the wave of awe for the rest of the year…

  9. jess says:

    Oh I remember keeping my mum up for the entire night during sleepovers. The polite requests for quiet slowly turning into the Batman-style growl “shut up!”. Good on you for getting any post up!

    • Kirsty says:

      I’m usually “good cop” around here so the fact that I was the one that had to lay down the law in the end says something about our situation. I still can’t believe that we chose literally the longest night of the entire year to do this…

  10. Tory says:

    Love this post – glad to know the sleepover went well!

  11. LOL! The irony.
    Sorry I’m late. Been travelling. Now that you’re on my linky radar I will endeavour to be here EVERY week. Except for when I forget of course ….

    • Kirsty says:

      I’m so jealous of you right now – nearly a year ago I was in the US and getting ready to cruise the Caribbean. I hope you have a fabulous time – really, I do!

  12. Big weeks always lead to forgetfulness. I forget things all the time.

    • Kirsty says:

      I have to admit this week hasn’t been much better. I’m walking 15K steps a day for autism and I’m getting so exhausted. Which is compounding my forgetfulness. Thank goodness we’re on holidays here next week – they can’t come soon enough!!!

  13. Zita says:

    Wow… 11 boys! Great job on that one! Good luck with the walk.
