One more week of school and then we can start to wind down for a couple of weeks school holidays. At least that’s the plan. I’ve been finding it difficult to function well lately with a lot of noise in my brain and a busy schedule. A brave face and smile and no-one is the wiser. People just don’t want to listen to complaints and I don’t feel like I can talk about my concerns. Whenever you mention how you are feeling, there’s always someone that’s doing it tougher than you so you soon learn not to bother speaking up.
Poor Linden must get sick of me pouring out my thoughts, he’s the only one that I feel I can be honest with. Sometimes I doubt he’s actually listening, though it does feel good to get things off my chest.
A couple of weekends ago, we had a lovely visit from home – my sister and her husband came to stay for 3 nights. We went to Bald Rock and Boonoo Falls on the Sunday and I was very proud of Michelle making it to the top of the rock.
Last weekend the 4 of us did the Casino Fun Run and had a great morning together. Linden did the 5km run and even managed to win 3rd place in the over 40s group. The girls and I ran the 2km. Lucy is keen to start Little Athletics next term so we have signed her up and will see how she goes. I’m sure she’ll have fun and make lots of new friends. Alice is going to try it out and see if she wants to continue but she’s not as interested as Lucy.
Mum has decided to come and visit for a few days during the first week of the school holidays so we’re looking forward to seeing her and having a shopping day in Lismore.
Our Fraser Island holiday is coming up soon and I’m keen to make a short video of our trip if I can. I also decided to buy a dome for the Gopro so I can get some over/under split photos at the various lakes. We’re all looking forward to the adventure and have planned out a rough itinerary of ‘must see’ things while we are there.
Hopefully I’ll have lots of photos to show from our trip.
Until next time x
