It’s been a hard couple of weeks. Lots of juggling, lots to fill my limited headspace. I keep thinking “this must be it, this must be it” and then, as a wise blogger  wrote last week, the universe empties it’s pockets of all the shit lint and drops it on you. Or something like that; I am prone to paraphrasing.

We moved house. Then we had the school musical. Then we had Poss’ ILP.

Then we had the end of term and with that we saw a good friend leave the school, as well the lack of structure that holidays bring.

And then this week, my mum went into hospital for a bi-lateral (or double) hip replacement.

There has been worry and stress, melt downs and tears, punching and screaming, anxiety and broken nights sleeps.

Some moments it can feel like I am slipping below the water line; a throw away comment or a nasty tweet and I can feel myself sinking. But thankfully, I am surrounded by some amazing people who lift me up and sooth away the immediate concern, helping me tread water that bit longer.

With MIL here for the week, I know I can focus on Mum, while husband and Poss are fed and the house is in order. She makes a mean spaghetti, will engage Poss in endless play and listens to me vent at the end of the day. It’s helping.

I understand that others are facing their own versions of hell at the moment, and honestly, compared to others I feel like I have no reason to complain. Everyone has their own story, I guess, their own challenges and it’s all relative.

But enough. This is enough for us.

Surely it’s enough.
