School Holidays...

Posted on April 10 2016

Just want to say thanks heaps to everyone that read my first blog! After I crawled out from under my doona, and put down the brown paper bag that I was gasping into, I read some of your encouraging comments and was rapt. So I'm back!

Back to school tomorrow! *happy dance/twerk/fist pump*. Our holidays have been pretty quiet. My husband worked pretty much the entire time, bless him, so it was just me and the kids. Every day I would look at Facebook and see people out doing holiday things, being really good mums, taking their children out to special places and having fun times.

Each day my kids would ask me what we were doing today. 'Can we go to funfields? Can we go to the movies?' Can we go roller skating?' I would reply with the old 'we'll see' but to be honest, by the time I went to Woolies and bought bloody food, the chance of a day at funfields was as likely as a day trip to Disneyland. It wasn't gunna happen!

These holidays have seen my children (and their various friends) consume:

- 27 litres of milk
- 15 loaves of bread
- 12 cups of noodles
- 2 jars of Nutella
- A jumbo bag of dinosaur nuggets
- 3 boxes of that disgusting Easy Mac stuff
- 27 bananas
- 3 litres of yoghurt
- 2 kilos of apples
- 2 kilos of grapes
- 6 punnets of strawberries.
-
They ate heaps of other crap too, but im not really sure what, although if I vacuumed on, under and in the couch, then inspected the contents of the vacuum bag, I'd probably find out.

I have washed at least 20 cups per day. My washing machine has been going non stop. They have changed outfits as often as a Victoria's Secret model. I've found play dough in the dishwasher and the house phone in the toilet. They dug a hole in the back yard and spent hours making mud pies. Right next to my line full of white washing. (Not so white anymore).

Ive picked up my couch cushions 743 times. Ive folded blankets from their discarded forts. I've played referee in many different forms. I've threatened soap on tongues, iPad restrictions, wifi disconnection, cancelled play dates. I've hidden in the shed while they called me, begging for my Apple ID and password, eating their Easter eggs and rocking.

I've also slept in. A lot. Had heaps of laughs and cuddles. Spent days in my pjs, watched Toy Story more times than I can count. I've watched my kids play with their friends. Watched them write songs and then listened to them perform them. Observed the people they are growing up to be. These holidays have been like my old childhood! Back to basics. I think they've had a good time. They don't feel deprived or that they are missing out. Well not right now anyway. Pretty sure I'll find a handwritten note in the coming days saying something along the lines of 'you are the worst mother and I'm bored'.

How do you feel about the holidays? Have you had enough or would you like just a little more time?

    I thank Dr.Ogiso for his marvelous work in my life, my name is Lisa from las vagas and I have got this nasty herpes since 2021 and was taking my medications from my doctor but wasn’t satisfied I needed to get the virus outta my system, I searched about some possible cure for herpes when I saw several comments about Dr Ogiso how he use traditional herb to cure this same virus so immediately I contacted him for the medication which he sent me through DHL delivery company. I drink the medicine for about a week as he prescribed and weeks later I tested negative for the virus, Dr.Ogiso truly is great and real’ whatssapp : +27786988200 Email: superiorspellhome@gmail.com

    I lost my marriage and beautiful home wrecked by unhappiness seeing my wife walk away over the lies she was fed with and insecurities which were never true. I vowed from the beginning never to be a cheat and stood my ground to ensure I built a happy home but unfortunately she never trusted me enough. I wandered for months trying to get her back and sought help from various sources including her family intervention but never yielded success. I came in contact with Dr Ogiso who I doubted at the earlier stage when i got in contact with . I had to keep hope alive and complied with the procedures just the way he explained everything to me. He assured me of her return which happened after 24 hours of the binding love spell and i am yet to find words to express how happy and appreciative i am, knowing my son and I have his mom back home to us. I am telling everyone about Dr Ogiso and his kind heart helping people. Call / whats app +27786988200 Email: superiorspellhome@gmail.com

    I want to give thanks to Dr Ogiso for bringing back my ex husband.No one could have ever made me believe that the letter I’m about to write would actually one day be written. I was the world’s biggest skeptic. I never believed in magic spells or anything like this, but I was told by a reliable source about Dr Mahlangu . My love life was in shambles; I had been through two divorces and was on the brink of a third. I just couldn’t face another divorce, and I wanted to try harder to make our relationship work, but my husband didn’t seem to care. and he broke up with me again . I was confused and did not know what to do again, rather i got in contact with Dr Ogiso.He did a love spell that made my husband come back to me. We are now very much happy with ourselves. Dr Ogiso makes him realize how much we love and need each other .This man is for REAL and for good . He can also help you to fix your broken relationship. I had my husband back! It was like a miracle! He suddenly wanted to go to marriage counselling, and we’re doing very, very well , in our love life .

  • Christine Allen: April 06, 2024

    Hi peeps. My name is Christine Allen and I have had tough and horrible experiences in my past relationships and I indeed waited till I met my husband and after we met, we fell in love and got married. After two years of our Union, he changed and started acting weird and eventually left me and our son. I Did all I could to get him back but all was fruitless. I came in contact with the comments and what everyone was saying about Dr Isikolo. I reached out to him and he responded and gave me his best effort and support to make my marriage work again. He was the one who made it known to me that my husband was taken from me by another woman and he cast a love reunion spell that reunited us back together and he came back home to me and my boy. Indeed no one out there has lied about Dr Isikolo and his good works. My husband came back home 48 hours after he did the work for as promised. Reach out to him now and be assured he will help you. You will have to email him now via: isikolosolutionhome@gmail.com or text him on WhatsApp him on +2348133261196 or check his page (https://isikolo-temple.com)
