Chai And A Chat #149 #ChaiAndAChat

Oh, Lordy, four weeks down, and only one to go!

Well, if you’re ready with your drink, I’m ready with my recap!

  • If we were having chai I’d start with a little sigh, and say that I still feel very, very tired. It’s not going to be a long post, today. I don’t have it in me, to be honnest, and with just a week of holiday left, I am not sure I will be firing all cylinders at the beginning of term.
  • If we were having chai I’d tell you that we went suit shopping for Lil Man and his Sixth form. It’ll be strange seeing him getting ready to go to college, rather than school… with his suit on rather than uniform, but how wonderful, too!
  • If we were having chai I’d mention that I popped into school briefly on two occasions, to move a few bits around, and get some things ready. There isn’t a huge point in doing too much right now, because we really don;t know what the cohort of children will be like, so the basic preparations will be done, and we can take it from there.
  • If we were having chai I’d go a bit quiet and say that, again, I have eaten far too much this week. The scales are mocking me. Nuff said…
  • If we were having chai I’d excitedly tell you that this week Lil Man’s Under 17s team won their league, and the cup match, then on Saturday, the 4ths Mens team he plays with, also won their match, meaning they will finish top of their league! And on the cricket front, my brother was playing a T20I tournament with Finland, against Sweden, and after four matches, they drew 2-2, so not a bad cricket week, all round!
  • If we were having chai I’d tell you it was Rakhri on Sunday, where brothers and sisters celebrate their love for one another. I miss being with my own brother, but always feel blessed that my own two have each other to continue this tradition with.

This week, I still have two intense cricket days, where Lil Man is playing for his District team, along with three traininng sessions, and another match on Sunday. I also have to go into school for the day on Tuesday, to spend some time with my team, getting set for September. But Hubby Dearest has time off on Thursday and Friday, so it will be lovely to chill with him, too, and hopefully relax a little before back to school hits!

    Hi Ritu, your little man is growing up. It feels quite strange, doesn’t it? I am sorry to hear you are still tired, I hope you get some rest this week as the beginning of the new year is always hectic.

    You are wonderful siblings! Congratulations, Sis! You only have one week of vacation left? That’s a shame. So your plan is: As much positive experiences and joy as possible. Don’t forget: Autumn is coming and the sun doesn’t shine that often anymore. You need lots of positive memories, when you deal with the little monsters again. 😉 Enjoy the rest of the evening, and have a beautiful week! xx Michael

    I love the idea of Rakhri. I took my boys to a Hundred match last week, which was absolutely thrilling, it came down to the last three balls. The middle one got to go to Lords to see the test match as well, so it was a really good week for him. I know what you mean about being tired though!
