Ranty Friday – my lack of patience

I have a lasting memory of my childhood after Parents Evenings with my parents coming home saying that the feedback was all good, I worked hard and participated well in class BUT I had no patience and rushed everything.

I used to laugh and roll my eyes when my parents told me to slow down as I never found it to be a negative…. until now.

I would like to think that I’m now described as a crafter and if there’s anything a crafter needs is patience. Everything is a little bit fiddly with a lot of glue and far too much paper so it’s very easy to get frustrated! So basically it’s quite an amusing mix – me and craft.

Not only am I crafter without patience but I’m also a parent!! And surely patience is at the top of the list when you’re being accepted into parenting school 🙂 Well somehow I got in.. twice!

This week therefore I’m ranting not about other people but about me. I think I’m an ok sort of girl but at the top of my list of things to change (other than my fat tummy of course) would be my lack of patience.

What do you find it difficult to be patient about?

Reasons to be cheerful – it’s the end of half term

Now don’t get me wrong, I love my children and love spending time with them but we’ve just had 2 weeks of half term and that’s only 6 weeks after 9 whole weeks of summer holidays.

My youngest only just started Nursery in September so this is my first experience of having my own time and I’m absolutely loving it.  Truly truly loving it.  It’s only 15 hours a week but it’s been a joy.  For the first few weeks I did very little.  I had grand plans of sorting out the house and their bedrooms and our office that I was changing into my craft room however in truth I watched a lot of Sky Plus!!!!  Anyway, come the end of September I started up Pressies by Pebbles and since then I’ve been spending my time crafting and blogging and generally getting excited about my new business.

So for the children to have been at home for the last 2 weeks, it’s kind of halted everything just as I was getting into my stride.  We’ve had fun swimming, playing in the park and snuggling on the sofa watching films but they’ve also frustrated me.  They are both enormously tired after a busy first half term and therefore are very short fused and hence leaving me a little frustrated.

So, although I feel guilty for saying this, my reason to be cheerful this week is because come Monday they will be back at school and nursery and my equilibrium will return 🙂
