I have just written a long post about Lizzy Faces' first week at nursery, but I didn't like it. I was only half way through it but it was long and boring enough at that. I think I'm not ready to get into all that yet, it's been a long and confusing week. For everyone. Instead why don't I tell you about my first day as Stay At Home Pappa Carr?
So far I have found writing this blog a useful exercise. It’s an age old therapy technique, write a letter to someone telling them how you feel but don’t send it – the idea being I think, that you marshal your thoughts and follow things through to understand what is really going on in your mind. It’s also an outlet for frustration, without having to inflict pain or worry on anyone else, in which there is an undeniable freedom. Blogging is very similar, until people you know start to read your blog.
It has been a long week. I have an infected blister on the end of my tongue so I am in constant pain, although Lizzy Face is sleeping better I am still not – as if my brain has now been conditioned to waking up and does so with stimulus or without. Work has been busy, stressful and the 24 hour fight The Fergotron and I had did nothing to help. But there is good news – for the foreseeable future my weeks will never be as long as this one is, as this is my last working Friday; as of next week my Fridays will be much more challenging.... I am on my own with Lizzy.....
As you know, over the weekend I went to the wedding of my very good friends hereafter known as Team Johnstings. It was a truly wonderful affair, not only being able to get together with some close friends and relax but also seeing two people who really demonstrated to me the reason why people get married – something which until then I hadn’t really understood.
I wasn’t planning on writing another post this week, as tomorrow is Friday and Fergotron and I are both going to different weddings over the weekend so I thought I would wait and have something to talk about on Monday. Then it occurred to me, ten days from today we will go through a huge change in our household, affecting the whole team and I haven't even mentioned it...
On the way home yesterday I read my entire blog to date. It didn’t take that long to be fair but it was quite enjoyable and made me smile reading about STAR WARS and our strange ‘festival’. It’s good to look back at things like this, recent things that you can draw a positive feeling from when you feel a little under the cosh from life. I did notice one thing though, in my post entitled ‘We Need to Talk about Lizzy’ I mentioned the Kiwi Music and promised we would come back to it in due course. Well the day has come at last, hold on to your hats….
Hi! Its time for another edition in the life and times of Pappa Carr, Lizzy The Face and The Fergotron - I can feel your excitement!
Now I know the last couple of posts haven't been the most positive ever - but hey, that's honest blogging for you. Today though, I'm going to lighten the mood and remember why we are all here at the blog in the first place: Lizzy Face.
Good afternoon bloggers and welcome back. I'm sorry for the delay in updating this blog, I have been stuck down a rabbit warren of coding but have come out of the other side and submitted my first prototype design to a client. Lets hope she goes for it! So how have you all been? Good to hear, I've been well - as well as any parent is during their first year though of course life is not without it's problems...
