The End.....& The Beginning....

This week marks the end of an era for me.....with miss 5 starting school it will be the first time in over 16 years that I will be without little ones at home.

Today miss 5 and I went for a little outing to the shops.  Whilst we were there I couldn't help but think that this would be our last little shopping adventure alone and I was a little bit I am now typing this!!

But then I remembered how little shopping adventures quickly become big shopping nightmares!!  How no matter how many times I tell miss 5 that we will not be buying everything that she sees miss 5 proceeds to ask for everything she sees.  How refusal by miss 5 to go in the pram or trolley will undoubtably see her wanting to be carried 3 minutes into the shopping.  How a trip to get milk with miss 5 can bring on a migraine!!!  How getting miss 5 into the car for a trip to the shops can take 30 seconds one day but 30 minutes the next.

So perhaps it is time for moving forward.....

I am hugely exciting, somewhat terrified and a little bit sad all at once about the year ahead. So many times over the years I have fantasised about this time!  That first day when all the girls were in school...would I go for a hot chocolate, perhaps lunch with hubby, maybe back home and into bed.....  In reality the first half day will be spent taking miss 14 to dentists appointments.....not quite how I imagined it....but that pretty much sums up life here!!

So this is the year when I have said I would keep up to date with paperwork and business activity statements, lose weight, organise the house, clear out our storage unit, discover a little bit of 'me'.....  Guess I have no more excuses now hey!!

So here's to the end of an era and new and different times ahead!!!
