Transition

This past month has been a month of change. M got into university as you know and D has now returned home for the summer holidays. Neither M or D are really on break though as they are working long hours to save for next years expenses.
The bedrooms have shifted around and boxes are stacked, some up in the attic and some not worth unpacking between now and September. M is working two jobs as a waitress and D works shifts at a call centre working orders for a dozen companies. They are happy and doing well.

Wee S starts primary school this year in August and so yesterday he and l went to have his uniforms measured and pre-ordered; how time flies. In truth this summer 2007 will be the only time when all of my children will be out of school, that is, until wee S turns 18 –again another time of transition.

My computer is upstairs now and hubby has fitted a Router to network both his and mine together, which means we can now go on the internet at the same time – handy when we both need to get work done. The view from my desk is just fantastic as it looks out over the water and I can sit here and watch the shipping and fishing as l type- wonderful! Even more wonderful though, is when the sun breaks though on a cloudy day, as it is now and shines down on the water – well then it just sparkles (a silver morning) and all seems right with the world.

Lots to get on with today. We are busy putting in a new shower unit and our friend will be arriving shortly to help with installing a new ring circuit. Also arriving soon will be my sister’s baby. l am just waiting here for the phone to ring - always a worry when we live so far apart.

Below is a photo of wee Charlie, my youngest sister’s baby. This photo was taken when he was only weeks old. He is a darling wee boy.

I wish l had more time to blog at the moment but my days seem to be filled before l even put a foot out of bed.

Bests all and hope you are keeping well.
Don’t forget it’s Father’s Day tomorrow!

You have so much there in your hands..and the transitions are exciting things in life. I had been ignoring blogland too..now that I'm back to work. Cute nephew you have there..

Hi Sarah ~~ This transition period is exciting for the participants. That is a great photo of your youngest little man. He already looks more
grown up. You have done a terrific job raising those kids. Hope you are keeping well, with all this rushing about and having new shower put in etc etc. Hang in there girl.
Take great care, Love, Merle.

I've been coming by periodically ever since your "Skedaddling" entry...also got your comment, so I know you've been very busy. It's SO NICE to see you back, even if it's just here and there in moments you can spare! I was watching a DVR tape of "House Hunters International" on HGTV this morning as I drank my coffee and it featured Edinburgh...so that gave me a nudge to stop by today when I got online. "M"'s prom picture is beautiful...how lovely she is, Sarah! And wee Charlie...well, I'd be happy to sit and rock HIM to sleep any time! Take care...and don't let life overwhelm you too much. Easier said than done, I know...I can't catch up with myself 99% of the time, either, ha! ((((HUG))))

You certainly have your hands full and I totally understand not having time to write.

I need a new router I think. I had to disconnect it to be able to connect with the net.

Take care. The pics are lovely.

I love that photo of S in the pipe. He's so cute! I'll bet he'll look very grown up and handsome in his new uniforms.
I echo Merle...you've done a wonderful job raising your kids. M and D have grown into fine young adults.
It sounds idyllic in your new upstairs computer room. Watching the water....what could be better?
I hope your sister has an easy time of it and that all goes well.
Little Charlie is adorable :)

Dear Horizon....I am so happy you are back to blogging....I've really missed your postings about your daily life and what's happening with your family...

Your daughter is beautiful and looks so elegant....

Your view while you work at your computer sounds devine. I don't know if I'd get much accomplished. I'd just want to stare at the scenery......Take care...Betty

Isn't Charlie just gorgeous, nice to see a pic of him. Big boy by the looks of it too. Still waiting here can't walk very well and in alot of pain now pubic bone sepertated again arghhh. But hopefully I will pop soon. Can't think of much else to be honest. Done the banking for the month and the school fee's paid so now would be the perfect time . Hope the wee one is listening to that lol

Whew! I need another cuppa coffee after reading that! But it sounds like you're all well and that's the good news. Enjoy your time with all the kids!

The Mama said...

Sweet baby face! And your daughter looks just like a real princess in her dress...ah how they grow! The view sounds nice at your computer. We tried the router but the upstairs computer is too old, needs a network card, yuck. Not a priority!
I'm glad you'll have the kids home a while, even if they're off to work. :)

You've been so busy! I can understand why blogging has been set aside a bit.
The view from your upstairs room sounds so amazing! Pictures???
