Another week’s passed and we’re at half term again. It doesn’t seem like long since we were off on Easter holidays. It’s been a good week – work has calmed down thankfully, and N’s had a good week at school.
SATs is over, they had a charity dog walk, we’ve booked a few days away although the weather isn’t looking great for half term.
I did get a slapped wrist from after school club thanks to the OH sending nephew number 3 to pick N up in a tractor one day. I plan to pick up each day, but if the OH finishes early or is going past then he picks up. The first I know about it, is a voicemail from N saying his dad’s picked up. But I didn’t know about the nephew pick up. While he has his tractor licence and there is a seat and seatbelt for N, he shouldn’t be picking up N. He’s not an adult yet, and if the OH can’t pick up, I’m usually on my way so it’s not like there’s noone else to pick him up.
So I got the email because the OH takes no ownership for things like this and never provids his email addresses etc (although he did pick up N after that occasion so I don’t know why it wasn’t mentioned to him), as it’s a safeguarding thing that after school club know who’s picking N up if it’s someone different, plus the tractor arriving with a teen worried them. I admit I had a bit of a rant at N about it because I didn’t know, and mentioned it to the OH saying it shouldn’t be happening and why, but of course it was met with no response. So hopefully he was listening and takes it on board. He just thinks the rules are stupid, but they’re there for a reason, and it means he has to think and plan in advance to let them know (never going to happen, so I’ll be the one being told to let them know).
I finished with week by dropping my precious camera. Thankfully the lens is fine and it still takes photos, but the cover on top of the viewfinder has popped off due to the casing below cracking and banding up, so the cover won’t go back on. I guess that means a trip to Jessops tomorrow to see if it can be sent back to be fixed. Although I might have to wait until we’re back from our break. I’m not sure I can just live with my phone for photos – I’ll have no battery left by lunchtimes!
Today’s Project 52 photo was laken on Sunday at Stanwick Lakes where N and I had a lovely few hours in the sun.
