"Ah, I loved reading this, it was like you were right next to me talking.
You make your day sound both chaotic and magical. At least you didn't include a trip to A&E!
Looking forward to reading your future entries, will almost be like popping round for a cuppa. Almost.
... I was thrilled to pieces.
However, I have occasionally felt a bit like being back at school where you have the cool kids and I'm hanging around on the periphery, not quite cool enough, but then I remembered that I was very happy that way at school. I'm fortunate that as I get older I care less and less what other people think about what I do, wear, think and am more confident in my own skin, beliefs and values. I don't need anyone else's validation to be happy. If no-one but my Mum read this that would be fine, this is not a popularity contest (although bizarrely it sometimes feels that way) and if people want to spend time reading my ramblings, then I am firstly surprised, but also humbled and pleased that people find it entertaining enough to bother!
I sincerely hope that any lovely readers can read between the lines and know that life is never perfect, my house is a bomb site most of the time, my neighbours are probably sick of the sound of me yelling, I'm sick of the kids fighting and so on! I confess to missing mums back in Scotland who I used to be able to chat to and realize that my children weren't freaks but were in fact normal! I don't know many of the older boys' friends' mums so don't have that support here and sometimes venting a bit helps.
So thank you so much to any of you who read my nonsense and comment either here or on Facebook. I do love a chat but don't always have the time to reply or comment. There is a reason that "Chaos" is in the title...
