A quiet weekend.

September 22, 2012


Well,I survived my first week back at work,and despite feeling rather tired and a little wheezy,all went really well.It was fantastic to see the staff and students at my four schools,and my goodness,the children have all grown so much! Emilie went back to daycare on Wednesday and we still don’t know the cause of the mystery fever,but it is doing the rounds and a number of children at daycare and Annie’s school have had the fever.Strange!

And Annie woke up this morning with a high fever unfortunately,so stayed home with me and missed out accompanying Kenichi and Millie to an annual festival in a town an hour from here. And  later,she was supposed to go shopping and to the pool with her friend,Akiko, and mother later.Then Akiko was going to come and sleep-over here which both the girls and Millie were so excited about. Such a shame,but we will re-schedule,and hope she is okay for school on Monday.

I leave you with a photo of Annie,taken just now and requested by Schuschi,our wonderful aunt. Annie slept all morning,and wanted to do some drawing,fever or not,so is sitting at the window and sketching,whilst waiting for Kenichi and Millie to come home. Wishing you all a pleasant and enjoyable weekend!

    I would imagine the first week back is the toughest, hopefully with each passing week you will feel a little less tired. Although probably quite hard to do as a working Mom!! Annie is so beautiful, I love this photo, she looks quite introspective, especially with her pen and paper!

      You are so right!For me physically ,Week One was the biggie.Back in April,in retrospect,,I wasn’t able to climb a set of steps,let along teach afterwards.Now,I am still breathless at times but usually dus to my silly students saying silly things to make me laugh!And this working Mum will get back to routine….been doing it since the biggie was just a few months old.But this time,I am getting better at saying “No”,lol.x

      Thank you as ever,Jerry

      .We have a video of our last visit to the UK; Annie was nearly 4 and Millie was a babe in arms.You and Annie had a lovely time playing cards and all on “tape”.We cannot wait for a repeat performance,but I do believe that it will be a hell of a lot more lively with your gorgeous grandchildren ready to join our mob,lol! Love to you and the family as ever,especially Sue xxxxx

    Must be the Kiesler-nose!
    She does look very intellectual on this picture. That must come from the French side of the family ; ))
    Hope she’s feeling better

    LMOA…Fooled…she was “With fever” and totally out of it.So now that you mention it,that is rather a Kiesler thing;)
