Well, we may all have been ready for the return to “normal” life but once I got back this morning it seemed very quiet! We’re not a noisy family but it was very strange not to have any chat and no requests for food.
Both the kids went off to their respective schools quite happily. I think they quite like the routine and A particularly had missed her friends. Good days were had by all.
The absolute highlight of my day (and possibly month, even year?) was the news that my lovely lovely friend has been approved to adopt a child. I’m so incredibly pleased, delighted, excited, and any other adjectives like that, for her. She’s been on a really hardcore journey to this point and it’s not over yet but step 1 is done and it’s going to get more and more exciting. Just brilliant.
