I had never realised there was so much to do and so much to organise. I helped out as much as I could but as my two girls are still small, I tried to protect them as much as I could from the sadness and explanation of it all. Its strange how someone who is old, has had a good life, and you’ve only known for a short period of time can still have such an effect on you. It still doesn’t make it any easier.
In the midst of all this sadness, my daughter goes and gets herself a certificate from school for trying hard and doing well with her reading! Even though she’s doing so well at this private school, we have decided to move to a better school location. We’re still in the same city but moving to a different area with the hope of getting into one of the good local schools in that area.
So many plans and so much happening this year and I have all my new years resolutions of shouting less, being a good mum, working harder to fit in between all this madness.
