Adjusting. This week has been about adjustment. For all of us.
Last week I couldn’t face writing, or talking too much really. I was coping. I withdrew. And then I distracted myself, all of us. And then it hit me. The start of the week was tough. I have taken some comfort in that George is coping really well and finding new ways each day of adapting. I’m not there yet. But I will be. There’s still so much about our routine that has changed.
Thankfully work suddenly became really busy this week, it helped. It felt really good to be busy. Distracted. Busy not thinking. Just doing. Doing what I love. I am so lucky to have a very supportive family and wonderful group of friends around me. People who keep checking in on me. Talking to me.
And so this week I have been
We started to watch Little Fires Everywhere this week. I do love Reese Witherspoon. We have only watched the first episode, I believe there are another seven. Definitely one to watch. I’m certain there is going to be a twist, a dark twist. Other than that I’m still catching a few episodes of Grey’s Anatomy. It’s so good. A really easy watch. I am totally into all of the characters now.
Exercising with George
We took our #pewithjoe sessions out into the garden on Monday and Tuesday. It was so lovely to be able to do this with George. And then the rain came so we were back indoors from Wednesday. That doesn’t stop George. We have so much to thank Joe for. George has taken 50 #pewithjoe sessions, I am so proud of him.
Enjoying the garden
Renovating our garden over the last 10 weeks was a huge project. A huge achievement. So much hard work but it’s kept us distracted. It’s kept us busy when we couldn’t go far. It has challenge us. Made us smile and feel a huge sense of achievement. And then it served its purpose, because on the weekend that we lost Alfie our garden came together, and together we spent the next two days. In our little family bubble protecting and supporting.
The sunlight hits the back of our garden in the late evenings, so as we waited for our food I enjoyed reading as the boys played football. I’ve fallen behind on my reading lately, I just haven’t been able to focus. I’m hoping to enjoy reading again soon as my magazines are piling up. I’m usually a Red Magazine girl but recently I’ve added Vogue to my list.
Well as we’ve now entered the month of June it’s time to start planning George’s 9th birthday celebrations. We originally planned a Crazy Golf Party for George and all of his friends but as that is no longer possible we’ve decided to have a garden party. Which I think he is secretly very very happy about. I’ve ordered all the decorations and balloons and cannot believe we are just 3 weeks away from celebrating the birth of our gorgeous boy. I am so excited for him. As well as really emotional.
Have a wonderful week ahead.
