Y3 - 218/365: A Day "Off"...Sort of...
A little chit-chat when Ryan returned home today revealed my little Romeo has a little girlfriend!
There's a little girl at his childminder's who is just a bit older and we're told she has really taken a shine to Ryan. He likes to go and try to sit on her lap when she's in the beanbag or just be as close to her as possible. I love that he's starting to make some little friends!
We decided to send him to the childminder today despite me not having any work because the house needed a good clean and we needed to sort through lots of old papers that we had been keeping for all the hoops I've been jumping through the past 3 years for the UK Border Agency. Now that I have my Indefinite Leave to Remain I don't have to worry about it anymore.
Plus, we pay a retainer fee each week to hold Ryan's place, so if I don't get work all week, then I may as well send him on a Friday if I have lots to get done at the house. As it turns out, it was a good call because I was able to clear through loads of rubbish and now have a nice box of papers to be shredded.
After two and a half years in a long-distance relationship, I packed my life of 29 years into 21 boxes and moved to England to marry and be with my husband, Matt. Now I'm reveling in the youth of my 30s in Great Britain, supply-teaching in primary schools near Birmingham and enjoying newlywed life, being a mommy, and all the surprises they bring!
