It's been a while or what LOL




Yes, it's been a while since I tapped on the keys - have I had anything to say??? not sure, the last few weeks have been a blur. Holidays, well the days drifted one into the other and towards the end hubby took some time off so we did house stuff like buying furniture for the study and moving the family room around. In this reorganisation I gained the filing cabinets in my room as they are metal and the study is now all 'wood' - still not sure how I got conned but there you are! anyway my room is once more a tip and desk space is at an all time low and getting creative has been very difficult. Never stop thinking about stuff but getting it down is a problem. Also the back to school thing has been huge this year as no. 1 son entered Year 7 (last yr. of primary) and no. 2 son started Kindy. Major excitement indeed! one wearing the uniform for the last year and one putting it on for the first time. We also managed to start swimming lessons for Lorcan which were a huge success as he passed stage 1. Lorcan used to have the grip of death on you in the water but now is keen to swim lengths, dive under and as of yesterday was floating without an aid and making good progress in using his arms to do the strokes - so it's an incredible turnaround and I'm still in awe that he has done so much in such a short time. Taidgh is very excited to be Yr. 7 and will be off to camp in a weeks time. He is also going to start keyboard lessons in the near future, is this wise I hear you ask, well at least it's not the trumpet! Anyway here a few pics of our new year start.
