The week started off reasonably quiet. Kids went back to school after their Easter vacation, which means I am once again spending up to 3 hours a day in traffic. I could get so much work done in these 3 hours. Hubby has suggested I get someone else to do the school run, but I find it is the only time I get to spend with my kids – away from computers / games / homework / phone calls etc. So I like to have this time dedicated to my kids – we get to talk about day to day stuff, share views and even joke about a bit. We also get to listen to Son no 3’s head banging crap in the car, but apparently my choice of music is not much better (or so I’ve been told by a fellow blogger!)
I’ve also been out a few evenings this week – very unusual for me. I was asked to a meeting at a theatre we helped design a few years ago. They want to make some structural changes to the lighting bridges and relocate follow spot rooms. So we arranged a late afternoon meeting to meet with the various theatre staff. We debated a whole bunch of options and then went out for dinner.
On Thursday evening we went out to dinner with the CEO of our biggest client. He took us to a really posh restaurant. You know the sort where you get lemon sorbet in-between courses to cleanse your palette. Sat sipping champagne all evening as well. Besides being a little bored with some shop talk, the evening was quite enjoyable and the food was excellent.
Son no 4 seems to be coping very well with the extra pressures of being Head Boy and Cricket Captain. His marks have remained constant and in fact he is bringing home some brilliant marks as usual. He aced his maths test once again so I’m a very proud mom.
I’m doing a trip to Botswana in about 2 weeks so quite excited about that. I have never been to Botswana. It is a business trip and only a 1 night stay. It will never-the-less give me something to blog about so I will be taking some pics and posting them.
That’s my week in a nutshell. It is now Saturday morning here in a very wet and cold Johannesburg and I hope to spend the weekend blogging and catching up on reading some of your blogs.
