Both Children are now back at School and have most of a week of being back at School under their belt. It also means that I've got most of a week of being back in my routines under my belt too. I've added some new chores, some extra exercise I've added a few more of course but that's not what this post is about. I'm feeling a little sad and am crying at TV shows, adverts and even books because as usual I've got so used to having the Children around over the Summer Holidays and spending quality time together that suddenly having them taken from me for six hours a day just makes me feel so... I don't know at a loss I guess.
I know however, for them and for me School is the best option. I'm not cut out to be a full time Teacher to the two of them, nor as much as I would like to a class of Children. I'm much better at topping up their education with Mummy homework, getting them to learn in addition to what their School teaches them. Rounding them off with understandings of Philosophy and Religion and a love of Literature, Art, Architecture and Music.
And so I'm back to being a Stay at home Mum, with no children at home.
How on earth am I to fill my days? Being the lazy so and so that I naturally am, I could just sit at home and watch Netflix and surf the web. I don't want to do that however. I could spend hours a day cleaning my house, heavens know I actually need to, but I want to make a difference.
I just don't know how.
I already do a small amount of Volunteering and Charity Work and of course I'm a School Governor. These things make a difference, a small difference but a difference none the less.
So, does anyone have any suggestions on how I can make a difference?
