This week my Word of the Week is:
We've had all the emotions here this week.
Over the weekend Ellie and Stu spent most of their time making a model of Hadrian's wall and the fort.....We were so happy with it. Ellie was so excited to take it to school....
They were going to be judged and 3 winners. 1st, 2nd and 3rd....As soon as I found this out I said to Stu that I don't even have to see the other projects to pick the winners I guessed it would be the popular kids....
I'm not doing the whole bitter, sore loser thing but it's a fact that in Ellie's class there is favourites. It's always the same 4 or 5 children picked for everything.
Ellie came out of school quite sad and said "him, her and her won obviously!"....She said "what's the point in trying when they win everything, every time!". I can see where she's coming from but I told her she has to keep trying....I was so proud of her effort....She's a winner in my eyes!
We have had dealings with our landlord which really made us happy....We asked for a new tenancy agreement at the beginning of this month and we finally got it this week! We thought it would just be for a year but it's for two and the rent stays the same!! Hooray!! We also asked if we could paint the awful tiles in the bathroom....She said "Paint whatever you like it's your home" which I thought was so lovely! We were always under the impression that we were to keep everything white.....That is not the case. We're allowed to add a bit of colour! I am so pleased!
There isn't much news about Becky....She has been in a great mood this week....I think it's because I have been letting her to stay up and watch the Britain's got talent semi finals....hehehe She's been going to bed at 9pm and I've been telling her the results in the morning.
The excitement is building for the half term school holidays....We have some great plans for next week! I had a lovely delivery of goodies for the Take Back the Kitchen campaign with Wren Kitchens....We're going to be doing a bit of cooking as well as having family visit and a day out at the Life Centre in Newcastle.
Today we are also going to Newcastle for Ellie's hearing test....As I've mentioned before she is deaf in one ear so the hearing tests are just to keep an eye on her good ear. I always worry about these appointments even though deep down I know her good ear is fine....
