Sometimes, I bite off more than I can chew. Sometimes, I have no option. But I am laughing through my tears.
Today has been a challenge again. A day spent with my sister in law working on clearing out the house again. Mini’s glasses to pick up for the opticians and then parents evenings to go to. MadDad is sore and possibly overdoing this as his wound is weeping and I am tired to the core.
But then we hear a voice with a guitar and we both sit and listen. Mini sings a song and I sit with tears in my eyes. For his song is about his grandma who died on Christmas Eve, but would still love him and be proud of him for his good school report.
Children are the best medicine.
You are right, music and children are the best tonic. Thinking of you and keep smiling through those tears, I am told that it really does help Xx
@claire: I am smiling through the tears, It is very strange

I love this – it’s so true. Wishing a speedy recovery to MadDad. BTW, how do you get your sister-in-law to come and clean your house?
@midlifesinglemum: Oh I so wish it was my house, we are still in the process of cleaning out mums things, but I am so lucky she is a one in a million
You’ve got two fabulous kids there missy!
@Vic: I know, so have you mind
Oh they are, they are! They can lift us right back up in the twinkle of an eye. Love to you,as always. xx
Well it’s official! From now on I won’t click your links till I have a box of tissues at the ready!
Hope MadDad feels better soon, and that you get a chance to take it easy.
Oh, and here’s a hi-5 for Mini and one for Maxi for being so adorable!
@Alethea MomonaWire: High Five taken and I will pass it on to them. MadDad is getting better each day and there is something cathartic about doing all these things
Heart breaking post mrs, the practical things are so tough aren’t they? Visited my mum at the weekend and she still has one room, floor to ceiling crammed with my Dads stuff, its really blocking her getting better I think. so sad. So your doing the right thing in tackling it head on. And your boy sounds adorable, they really are the best medicine aren’t they? XXXX
@Icklebabe: There are still dads things in the house too. We are taking things slowly and doing a room a week at the moment. I dont know where I would be without my family
You really have some lovely children, give them a big cuddle xxx
@Liz@VioletPosy: They are just the best things in the whole wide world
Do you want to swop boys ? Mine cause me to NEED medicine ! Massive, humungous hugs and sloppy kisses xxx Devon awaits …………..
