I am in the middle of a run of zero appointments for the girls: 3 lovely weeks without a single appointment. It really is a novelty for me, particularly because I work 3 days a week so my ‘free’ days are often chock-a-block with appointments for Kitten and Bunny.
I am trying to make good use of the time to get stuff done:
File some paper work. Is it only my girls who seem to attract endless piles of official letters, forms, etc?
Clear out some old toys. I would love to think I could make some much needed cash on EBay or FB selling these but I think time pressures mean they’ll go to charity instead.
Clear out some clothes. My wardrobe is full of unworn outfits and as I’m in my pjs by 7pm every night I think I can safely send many of these to the charity shop.
Start work on life story books. I haven’t received books for Kitten or Bunny but I did eventually get a disk of photos after much nagging. I already have the fab Joy Rees book ‘Life Story Books for Adopted Children; A Family Friendly Approach’ so I really have no excuse.
So those are my 4 aims for these 3 weeks. It doesn’t seem like much probably but I often feel tired and find getting on with practical things quite hard. I’m hoping that writing them here publically will force me to at least do some of them!
