Only thing is this week I haven't exercised at all - I've managed to damage my left heel. It's very painful to walk on. I think I may have over done it on the bike ride front or it could be my new boots. Anyhow, I've been wearing an ankle strap and will order some sole cushions. Not only that the weather has been a tad dodgy and its been a very busy week. The hubster has been away in France starting work on a run down shack we bought 10 years ago for peanuts. We got planning permission very quickly (2 weeks) - maybe it helped that we submitted it around Christmas time two years ago. Maybe the Mairie was feeling all festive, anyhow, that was good news and we had to start work on it by the end of this year otherwise the planning would expire. In theory we could take the next 10 years to build the thing but hopefully that won't happen! We planned to start it last year but back issues took over.
In addition, my son started his new school on Monday! Yay! It all came around very quick and he could have started after half term but wanted to go in before. He was glowing about the school Monday, Tuesday then on Wednesday he was very angry and distressed and I thought oh no what have I done. Turns out he overheard me talking about his friend from his previous school not having anyone to play football with and he hadn't been taking in a water bottle which was giving him headaches. Also, starting a week before all the children break up probably wasn't the best idea as they were very lively on that day. Anyhow, after a sleepless night, the head and all the staff reassured me he was fine, settling in etc. Yesterday, he couldn't shut up about how brilliant the school was. He can play football, tennis, basketball, any sports, trim trail before school, at break and lunch. There is a 'calm room' so if you want to read a book during playtime you can. His new teacher is head of literacy (my son's favorite subject) and they were all able to chose the authors/books that she will purchase for the school. They had MUFTI day yesterday with Halloween dress up and their behavior passport treats - gold passport holders had a disco and/or UP the movie, silver had a drink or snack and the ones that didn't have passports had to work through. He said there wasn't many people doing that. I bet! What a wonderful system. The classroom is large bright and airy and he's made 4 friends. He had a guided tour of the school which also has an outdoor heated swimming pool! I feel I've been let in to the best kept secret in the borough. So phew, I made the right decision and can't wait for my daughter to start.
