.... well it feels like it - so much has happened this week.
Firstly I lost another 2.5 pounds at Slimming World making a total of 23.5 pounds :) I am so so pleased. I am not sure I will lose anything this week, in fact I will probably gain it all back as we are out tonight for a Chinese meal and I'm out again Monday for another Chinese meal.
I have a very full week of eating next week and quite a few people are retiring from school and I have three separate meals out. It will be quite a week as there are lots of changes going on with us opening as a National Challenge School. It is all being finalised this week which is a bit strange because if they don't give a final yes heaven knows what will happen to the school. As soon as we have a decision everyone will be a bit calmer.
School was hectic for the kids this week. We had our performance of Grease Wednesday and Thursday night. There were some very quick costume changes but I had laid it all out so all went smoothly. My 30 skirts looked fab under the lights and none fell apart LOL. The kids were amazing, so professional and their voices brought tears to my eyes. There was such a positive buzz around school, everyone was on a high.
A slight hiccup happened Wednesday - I twisted my ankle rushing around backstage sorting my costumes out. I stepped back onto a pop bottle left on the floor ;(. I didn't have time to stop so carried on and didn't notice it really hurt until I got home. Thursday morning it was quite painful. We had sports day (not me LOL) and I had to stand around a lot which did not help. By the evening performance I was limping and by the end it was giving me lots of trouble. Anyway I had yesterday off and rested it and today it twinges but isn't too bad. Hopefully if I strap it for a couple more days it will be fine.
Ruby is settling in ok, quite a few issues but I think we have come up with strategies for them. We have a muzzle which we have to use a few times for various things. We have all had to start learning to shut our bedroom doors and the lounge door if we are upstairs. She has torn one of the sofa cushions but hopefully I can repair it with some spare fabric I have. She has only been here a week and has really learnt our way quite quickly. We don't know what life was like before for her but we know what it will be like - fab fab fab.
Alas I have not picked up a needle all week :( but I have finished the instructions for the JA Mail Art and emailed those out. I was hoping to stitch today but no time has been taken up with ironing and Ruby. We're off to MIL's tomorrow leaving Ruby at home so I might get 1/2 an hours worth in. And I certainly haven't had time to read, my booklist is huge. I have 4 books from school that I need to read over the summer ready for next year.
We are off to the caravan next Friday as it's the end of term. We have not been for 6 weeks and we are all getting withdrawal symptoms. Hopefully Ruby will love it too and I can't wait to show her the beach and sea.
Well I guess that's all from me - I hope you are all stitching away :)
