We are having a good week with the kids home.
I'm trying to balance work and still do nice things.
Tues I worked til 5am -1pm. They sleep in, have breakie, chill and watch tv, did some homework. So it works well. We then got Lou's hair cut and popped into town and then came back and had coffee and cake a friends over the road.
Yesterday Ade was home and did home work with the kids. I worked 6am - 12.30 and we all went out.
Ade and Louis to watch Starwars 3d and Hollie and I to see The Vow. Then we met up at our fave burger place. Gourmet Burger Kitchen
We love it there. It's really fresh and just yummy. Plus when you go to the movies you get 25% off.
Works out a really cheap meal out.
Kids are going out with their Dad for the day today. He's been really hard work lately. I've been having the same horrible feelings that we had when we were together. He keeps calling and I get really nervous and I don;t want to answer and when I do he's not very nice and when I talk he talks over me and doesn't listen to me and twists everything I say so when we talk the next time says I have said different things to what I have said.
I really hate him. Sorry I know that's strong, but 7 years after splitting I hate that he can still make me feel like this. Cold and so on edge, watching what I say and almost practising what I need to say before I speak to him.
It all started as Hollie wants to die her hair bring ginger red and I said no not at the age of 12. So she spoke to him and he's booked her a hair appointment for today. Thye did it behind my back.
The he called me last week questioning my relationship with her and how she obviously can't trust me and how the tables have turned that she can obviously talk to him better now.
I know this isn't true and she can't have her own way and knows she can by going to him. She's just used him.
As a result she's been punished for going behind my back and I've told them both she's not to get it done. Hollie has been fine with it, he hasn't.
Glad you had a not so snowy snow day Olivia
I find re the tidying/cleaning. When it is done it's little and often for me.
I always hoover every morning. The kitchen is always completely cleared away after breakfast and other mealtimes. The family room is always cleared. I can't leave anything out. It gets tidied when the kids go to bed, the cushions get fluffed when we go to bed. The bathrooms get a quick clean every couple of days.
This way I never have to spend loads of time cleaning and tidying.
I just wish Ade would live this way too
