It has been a while…

HI !!!!
We have arrived back to normality…… Whatever that is.

School has started again.

The 2013 life list hasn’t exactly turned out as we had wished for.  
Here is a reminder of the list;

The 2013 checklist :  Taken from the very first post I wrote on here:

  • Moving to Dublin
  • Restarting my Early Childhood Education honours degree
  • Turning 40 *tick*
  • Husband graduating  *tick*
  • Having a family filled summer *tick*

As you can see, there are two items on the list that have not been ticked.

 

Unfortunately I wasn’t successful in transferring my degree to Dublin this year,  There has also been a serious lack of jobs or Masters for a first class honours graduate.  So, the plan to move has been moved to the  2014 list.

We are a bit sad that our dreams couldn’t be fulfilled this year but we are more determined than ever to move east side next Summer.

It makes complete sense to stay put for the extra year.  Tulip and his friend from class are in the process of starting a business.  

Shamrock one has been discharged from speech therapy and the Ear Nose and Throat Department at hospital. This is huge news as we have been on this road since he was 3 years old.  His hearing is good and with this his speech has improved immensely.

Shamrock 2 starts “big” school next year so that will be a clean break for her.

I plan to apply to my preferred institute next year at the first opportunity I can get.  In the meantime, my crochet has proved to be incredibly popular.  I had to start an order book in order to remember all the items that were ordered.  As it stands now, the orders are still coming in and there is a significant waiting list.  I am absolutely delighted!

Tulip has been on the road today to finalise things for his business.  He popped into our derelict cottage during this road trip and phoned me straight away.  There are seemingly buckets full of blackberries on the lane leading to our cottage, just waiting to be picked.

Guess what the next blog will be about ;)

Must get on with my orders.  Chat soon :-D

My goal with this blog is to offend everyone in the world at least once with my words… so no one has a reason to have a heightened sense of themselves. We are all ignorant, we are all found wanting, we are all bad people sometimes.
