(not so) Blue Monday!

I always feel a little blue on a Monday but for some unspecific reason I feel extremely bright and chirpy today!
We had a great weekend. My sister, her husband and my mom came to visit yesterday. We had great food, great company and just chilled out. I chilled out so much that I totally forgot to take pictures of the renovations as I had planned to. I promise take some photos before dark today and will update this post with pics tonight.

It’s the last week of the school term for the kids this week. I can’t believe the first term has come and gone already! So much has happened but it all went past me way to fast to absorb it all. Marco is in the middle of his first exam. They didn’t write exams in the private school that they attended in the past, so this is yet another adjustment for him. I actually fear for the worst but I guess I’ll have to wait for his report card – which we’ll only get after the holidays.

Michael is going on a rugby tour for the first week of the holidays. I miss him so much and would have loved to have him home for the entire holiday but I know he really wants to go on the tour and I want him to enjoy every moment of it. I’ll take a couple of days off work when he’s at home after the tour to spend with the kids at home.

This week at work I have to finish off my budget for the next financial year. I hate budget time! Everybody is so stressed out and it’s always a big rush to meet all the deadlines. I guess my chirpy mood won’t last long around here but I’m going to give it my best shot in any case!

Hope all of you will have a great and productive (and hopefully more creative than me) week! A little birdie told me that this week's going to be a SUPER one! :D

God bless!
