Hope you've had a good week? Isn't the weather great and how long have we waited for this. Long may it continue.
Two things have dominated my week. Children and Wimbledon.
As you know I went to Wimbledon for the first time on Wednesday and what a fab time we had. We were there an amazing 11 hours, left at 7am and got back at 12.30am......It was quite surreal having watched it on the TV for all these years, to step through the gates and actually be there.
I was also lucky enough to be within touching distance of Isner and Mahut as they came off court. They finished their game just as we finished watching another match. Never did we think it would continue into a 3rd day. What a whopper of a match.
I haven't got any photo's as I left my camera behind, I had to keep my phone off and as I don't know how to put it on silent so there's nothing to share with you, but take my word for it, it was fab. The weather was an absolute scorcher and at one point we were in sat in direct sunlight and I did think we would frazzle, but good old suncream did it's job.
Either side of Wimbledon, I've had a number of child related problems to deal with. I apologise to those who haven't got children!
We've gone through the academic year swimmingly without any major issues or fall outs with friends. Well, I thought that was too good to be true In the last week there's been day after day of problems. One gets blamed for something which in fact he didn't do, hubby has to go into school whilst I'm at Wimbledon, it then gets escalated and then 1 day later it was established mine hadn't done anything.........but if he had been believed in the first place........I hate injustice! There are another couple of minor skirmishes which I won't bore you with the details.
The other son comes out miserable because he keeps getting told off for being silly so as a consequence he's not getting any special stickers. Simple solution - don't be silly and stay away from those who are. He's adamant he's not chatting or being silly. Emmmm.
To end on a more cheery note, I did treat myself to a couple of goodies at Wimbledon. Yet another bag......Toby did remark that I could have bought a cheaper bag at either Primark or Tesco's.....random or what? Hubby, meanwhile stayed silent.
Have a good weekend everyone and enjoy the sunshine!
