Sorry for the break, life has been hectic going back to work and school and I haven't had the headspace to get on here and blog. This is only very short but I promise I will get back in a day or two.
Jack is doing really well, both at school and with coping with things re Jenni. When we are having fun doing something or going somewhere, he often says, I wish Mum could see us doing this. He's not upset, just thoughtful and a little melancholy at times. But we have a little chat about it and I tell him Mum would love to see us and hear about it and it's ok to miss her. It's actually normal to miss her. He broke my heart the other day when we were out and he turned to me in the car and said, "Dad, I'm having trouble remembering what Mum looked like". It just really upset me and I was a little lost for words, but we were on the way home and I just said, "Well, when we get home we will get some pictures out and there's that big one on the piano". That seemed to help him and all has been ok since.
It's been bloody hot and humid here for ages it seems. More humid than normal and we are hanging out for some cooler, less humid days that are forecast in a couple of days. So we are all trying not to get grumpy with each other. It seems that every day has either been 30 deg Celsius or more (35 today, 33 tomorrow) and humid or when we get a break from the temp, the humidity stays! Had enough now!!!!!
Ok, must go to bed. Will add more here tomorrow I think. I have Wednesdays off at the moment to try to gather my life together a little.
