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. Click the image below to go to my fundraising page to find out more and (hopefully!) lend me your support 🙂
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!
Please tell me that you have forgotten lots of things before too?
