~ Strike! ~

Due to the strike, the boys were off school but not me! So I went in the morning to do my time and conducted a general meeting with my team. It was a productive meeting as we raise several issues and clarified procedures. The boys had private violin lessons in the afternoon as their exams are drawing near and I'm getting nervous! 

Lots of activities happening in the next few weeks. Can't believe how time has flown and there is only 3 weeks left to the school term. 3 weeks left for my eldest in the Junior School as he starts Secondary School in Sept. Gosh! Told my wee one to spend the next 3 weeks with his brother as it's the last time they both will be in the same school. 

It's the eldest's birthday in 2 weeks time. He initially wanted a sleepover with his friends but we (hubs & moi) are not keen and suggested a family outing instead. So we'll be heading for a theme park instead. I just can't cope with boisterous, hormonal-raging boys even for a few hours! Gosh, my boys are noisy enough without several more adding to the picture!

The warm weather has enabled hubs to do a lot of DIY. He put in a new bath and fixed a leaky flat roof. We had a fair number of quotes for it but they were such a ridiculous amount that he decided to do it himself with the aid of You Tube. He certainly did a great job!

I'm off to a carboot this Sunday. Got a fair amount of stuff to get rid off, namely toys, clothes & stash! I've lost my desire to paper scrap and see no point in hanging on to the monstrous amount of stash that has been accumulated over the years! Sheesh, did I really buy that much?

On the organisation front, got my boys' uniform bought, thanx to MIL. She got them from M&S where there's a 20% discount off uniforms at the moment. Plus as a previous employer, she get another 20% off so talk about a saving! I've only the PE kit to get for the eldest. I'm getting them out of the way as I'm away during the entire summer hols so I don't have any time to buy them if I don't do it now! Even their shoes have been bought but only because they worn them out. Let's hope they don't have a sudden growth spurt!

It's definitely gonna be a busy 3 weeks ahead. There's PTA & Governors meetings to attend, violin concert as well as Leavers' Performance/Award Ceremony. Not to mention a lot of little events in between. So looking forward to the summer hols! TTFN!
