The beginning of the end of Twentyten.
Jeez, we're here again. November and the end of another year in sight. This year has been a mixture....lots of good, tempered with a not so healthy dose of crap just to keep me balanced. It's over six months since I stopped the second job in order to concentrate on second son, and the results have been mixed. This has been by far the hardest year for him, and he's struggled healthwise and otherwise. He's currently off school for a couple of days,(again), dealing with some stomach problems that have been an ongoing deal throughout the year, so we're having a total revamp of diet and routine (again) to see if we can hit the right formula. On the brighter side, Firstborn has sailed through the year with only a few bumps along the way, and he's dealt with those in a remarkably adult manner. He's grown about 5 inches (not including his hair, which has a life of it's own) and has grown in maturity as well. I try not to dwell on it too much, 'cos the whole transformation to adult thing is unsettling to say the least. (The very least). Nanna is mostly back on her feet after almost five very, very long months. It's taking some time for her to get her groove back, and for me to stop hovering, but we're getting there slowly. Plans for our medieval handfasting are starting to take shape, we've booked the venue, the caterers and got the guestlist organised, and are starting to deal with the all important costuming issues, lol. The boys (including the biggest one) have chosen weapons of suitably lethal vintage, and Nanna and I are interwebbing our fingers to the bone in search of suitable patterns for them, as they all insist on Lord of the Rings style garments, as opposed to anything remotely Rennaisance. As Sebi put it "Real Gondorians don't wear tights" Be still my heart.
