Diary Entry #23
It has been an absolute whirlwind the last couple of weeks!
I recently received my second covid vaccine which left me exhausted and achey the next day. I had absolutely no side effects at all with the first vaccine so I was so shocked when the sore arm immediately kicked in! I literally did not want to get out of bed the next day. Although I did force myself up to go to a camping supplies shop with Josh but I regretted it immediately. I got a couple hours rest and then I had to dose myself up with painkillers and take Charlie to his first proper birthday party! It was at a local soft play centre for his friend and he absolutely loved it.
The following day was his first day at primary school! My baby is in Year R, I can't believe it. Charlie literally couldn't wait to go, he was dressed and asking if he could go to school by 8:10am, bless him! He's settled in really quickly and I absolutely adore his teacher, she seems like the sweetest person ever. Charlie also dressed up as James from James and The Giant Peach for Roald Dahl day at school!
I officially started my role as a nursery practitioner and met my key children. I'm definitely finding it easier now that I don't have to take Charlie in with me, so I can focus on the other kids better. My manager has been telling me I'm doing really well and I seem a lot more confident there now. I am currently having mixed feelings about the job. Last Tuesday I was feeling really good about it but by Thursday I was having doubts. I was bitten and punched on Friday and ready to quit. I definitely have a lot to think about...
Last Saturday was my sister-in-law's baby gender reveal party! It was a lovely afternoon for it and we now have another niece to welcome into the family next year.
Last Sunday, Josh left me to go on a camping holiday with some of his family. I was absolutely gutted that I couldn't go, and got a bit teary in the week leading up to him going! It's been a long, boring week without Josh and I'm absolutely shattered from all the early starts and overtime at work. However he got home this morning and I am so thrilled to see him again! I'm ready for a chilled weekend with lots of cuddles.
He also came home with gifts for me and I am absolutely in love with my new Tree of Life earrings and Triple Goddess necklace! He knows me so well.
How has your week been?
Until next time,
