Togetherness



These last couple of weeks have been strange, we've been really busy yet kind of bumbling along too. The weathers changing, so the nights are getting darker much earlier, therefore it makes the hours in the day seem shorter. To me it's been a time for just snuggling with my little family, I've been enjoying their company so much recently.
Chris has been on holiday since 30th and he's not due back till Tuesday! But it's been so wonderful because he was able to enjoy the last section of the half term, but has also been around this week which has been quite special. I find this time of year in general pretty lovely so it's been nice that he's been able to be apart of Halloween and Bonfire Night (we're off to the fireworks tomorrow! yippee!), he's also been able to attend Freddie's Parents Evening which was completely by coincidence which was on Wednesday - we both left from that as very proud parents and we couldn't help but talk all the way home about his accomplishments.
I've always had that motherly worried about him thing going on since he's started Nursery really and it's never quite gone. When he's with me I can see and talk to him if I feel somethings not quite right, whereas at school, I wonder if there's ever a time when he doesn't feel ok or confident enough to speak of not being ok.


That's another thing this week is how proud I am of our little unit. We're actually at our happiest when we're all together just being.. together. We've spent time reading books in bed, we've baked, we've been to the park and even simple things like doing bath time all together. It's been quite the treat as Chris works such long hours it feels some days we barely say Hello to him so I'm glad we're enjoying this time. We've got one last weekend before he heads back and knuckles down, bringing home some "pennies" to which I always reply "I hope you're bringing more than that home!"

I find life is full of these sections, we all go through bumps but it makes me appreciate the smooth times; the times where things are so pleasant and you just live in the moment of complete happiness. We've been there and these last couple of weeks have been great because I've been able to have time to study whilst Chris is with the boys, so I've been able to really knuckle down and I'm currently a week ahead according to my Study Planner which I feel pleased about. I want to put all my efforts into completing this course to a standard I'm happy with. I'm working on poetry at the moment and I felt I would find it far to difficult because I remember feeling overwhelmed with it at school, and I honestly put my English Literature grade to my teacher because he was fantastic. Revisiting it is amusing because I'm understanding it better now and Chris has been inputting on the evenings I'm listening to recorded poems and sayings, picking out the emphasised words and finding different meanings between reading poems to listening - so it's been nice to compare his thoughts with mine - something we usually wouldn't have because he'd be at work.
However, I'm really excited about this TMA and I feel I understand it which is such a great feeling! It fills me with hope. So I think this week, the word 'Togetherness' really sums up, pretty much everything.
