Well today has been going rather well so far.
Korbyn is on the mend after having had tonsillitis over the weekend and is back at school today; and Kassia is still plowing through loads of homework with the demands of high school, juggling sport and music clubs as well as a rather busy social life. She has been invited to go roller skating on Friday night at the High Wycombe Sport Centre and Korbyn is looking forward to his birthday party and of course his long awaited for pet, which at the ripe old age of 10 is something he gets to choose this year. Of course he has chosen a budgie and is very excited about welcoming the new family member into the house and more importantly into his room (if he can find space to squeeze him/her in) lol.
Nikita and Ce’Nedra are heading our way this coming weekend to help celebrate Korbyn’s birthday. Nikita is also going to take Kassia to Comicon on Saturday, so you can imagine how excited Kassia is. Ce’Nedra has a few more driving lessons lined up with Moi to practice for the big test in November (not as exciting as going to Comicon tho 😉 ). Chris and I are enjoying having our ‘own’ work spaces (we have shuffled the house around to accommodate our computers etc). Nikita and Ce’Nedra are now official ‘travellers’ as they don’t actually have a bedroom at home anymore… sorry loves! But it was a necessary decision as I was tired of camping my computer in the dining room. Yay for private space! Although I am so busy doing chores and other stuff I’ve hardly had time to appreciate it as yet. I am sure it will get less hectic soon, or at least I hope so.
One of my projects that I have on the go at present, is the face painting website… I found a lovely programme called Muse and am busy updating the website – this has been very, very, very long overdue! Yay for Muse. I also found a scrapbooking ‘shop’ near to us and have put it on my to-do list to go and explore… so much to do, so little time!
I am now volunteering on Friday mornings at Kassia’s school helping in the development office (working with lovely Dana, who we know from the squash club). Life is galloping along at a frenetic pace and I can’t help but feel the anxiety of a looming Christmas when I feel quite unprepared for the rate at which it is approaching. I am trying not to think about it… firstly I have to get through a half term holiday, Korbyn’s birthday party (which I need to hurry up and book), Halloween and numerous school events before I start to panic. Ha ha.
Chris has been jet-setting again and has recently returned from Singapore. I expect he will need to squeeze another trip in before Christmas, but nothing has been confirmed as yet. He is trying to fit in a few squash games here and there. I have started racketball training on Saturday mornings and play casual games of squash now and again. My kung fu has been great, they are pressuring me to grade, but I am yet to feel confident enough for that. Kassia is very happy as I have agreed to take her along to class as she had to sacrifice her karate lessons when she moved to High School. We will see how fit she as she runs circles around me in class ha ha.
Well that is about it for now… God bless you all.
