You can't catch me, I'm the Gingerbread man!!
I think its going to take a little bit of time to get used to having a child in school, it still feels very strange seeing him in his uniform and saying goodbye to him as he goes off with his class mates. April, as you know, is still at home with me but she feels a bit "lost" without Noel, and I also think she feels a little bit left out. I have tried to make an extra effort to do things with her. I have really enjoyed playing Princesses and curling up on the settee listening to her practice her reading, while Mini has her nap. On Thursday we made these gingerbread men together. April helped to weigh everything, mix it all up and cut them out. She loves baking, and it seemed to cheer her up a bit. Noel was very impressed when I went to meet him from school with a gingerbread man in my pocket for him to eat on the way home. After tea they both had lots of fun icing them and decorating them -as you can see one of them is shouting although I don't actually know why or who at!
One thing I do know though, everyone told me I would have a lot more time on my hands once Noel was at school, but I've certainly not found that to be the case at all! Hopefully once the dust settles things will be a lot easier, I feel a bit like a pinball in a machine at the moment!
