It sounds corny and after this week where we’ve tried to cramy everything in, I’m surprised I’m still feeling happy. But I am!
It’s been a logistical challenge to keep on top of it, I can’t lie.
First up was Mademoiselle’s drumming assembly where I listened to the culmination of this term’s drumming lessons. I love seeing Little Mister watching his older sister up on stage. There’s a real proud-moment-connection going on between them.
The drumming assembly was excellent. Mademoiselle is one of a handful of girls doing it and I’m so happy she wants to continue.
Next up was the violin assembly, too. Listening to both classes of children collectively play the violin after just one year’s practise wasn’t pretty, I have to admin…but on the plus side they all put in a lot of effort!!
Things seems to be falling into place with work-life-blog are concerned; I’m able to get time back on the blog and catch up with others, which I’m really happy about. It still means late nights and early starts, but I’m feeling work has settled down allowing me to do this.
Unfortunately Mummyshire.com had a visit from some IT bug that almost wiped my blog out, hence I haven’t been able to post for weeks. So I’m happy to be back up and running and sharing my #WordOfTheWeek !
I’ve also found a lovely, local Mummy-entrepreneur who is helping me sort out my wordpress/self hosting issues. So whilst the back end is getting an overhaul I’m going to take this opportunity to update the front visuals, including the way Mummyshire looks.
So, with every cloud, and all that.! My silver lining should be on display in about six weeks!!
School reports came out this week and I’m super happy and proud of both my little Shires. Little Mister passed his phonics tests, which at one point looked a bit touch n’ go as he gets so distracted in class. But he passed with flying colours. Mademoiselle continues to shine in literacy (takes after her mother!) and this year has excelled herself in science and maths. She now wants to be a scientific engineer, although she still can’t tell the time!!
Both were beaming broadly when they heard the accolades their teachers wrote about them.
Do you let your children read their school reports?
It’s been hard keeping on top of everything this week but I got to where I was needed & when, I saw the children perform and I have a flexible employer who allows me to do that! #Happy!
We have another two weeks of diary madness. Roll on summer holidays!

I'm Tracey, nice to meet you. Mummyshire was 'born' three years ago after we moved from London to the Oxford countryside. Here I chart our journey adjusting to our new lives, the challenges of being in the countryside & surviving parenthood.
