The weekend has landed and so on. Can’t remember the rest but used to love that film when I was younger do you remember it? Human Traffic with a young Danny Dyer. Still love that man.
Anyway, the sun was shining again today, we have been so lucky with the weather. Could this be the beginning of spring finally. Although the weather was lovely we didn’t have anything planned other than clean the house. It was a mess, I mean I’m not the tidiest of people, by far. I hate it. But it had been neglected after this week. I don’t understand how as we were hardly there but it was.
This is one part of parenting I hate. I feel guilty for leaving my daughter to do her own thing while I was cleaning especially when the weather is so nice outside. I know it’s part of being a mum and we all have to do it but I can’t help feeling guilty. I did manage to turn it into a game in the end and Lily was Cinderella.
My friend messaged me (whose daughter is in Lily’s class) at 1230pm, asking if we wanted to go to the fair. I wasn’t sure at first. I had no money, wasn’t even dressed and I hate the fair normally. I find them a bit Cheap and tacky at times.
But, I made the effort and I am so glad I did. It wasn’t overly big or busy. The sun was shining and Lily was really enjoying herself. It was actually nice to have an adult conversation and spend time with other mum’s as I don’t normally. Being a single parent can feel quite isolated at times. We haven’t been friends that long but we get a long so well and the kids can play. Which is a bonus for Lily so she has someone her age and not just me all the time.
I felt really good when I got home, we spent a good 2 hrs there, didn’t spend too much (thankfully) and Lily was happy. It’s the little things that can make a difference to the way you feel.
