Happy Faces and Progress
We are now starting our 3rd week in the "room". Earlier this week I hit a low point and allowed myself to wallow for a day or so. I think it's okay to have a good cry, and so that's what I did.
However, I am not going to allow this situation to break me, or to break my family.
Since my last blog I have continued to keep a photo record of all the nice things we do with the children. If you follow me on Instagram you can see the happy smiley faces of Samuel, Oliver and Isabella enjoying simple pleasures. The weather has been very much on our side and I like to think that means someone "up there" is looking out for us.
Yesterday Gary managed to speak to our housing officer who has now indicated that there might be a temporary property available for us in 7-9 days! We don't know what sort of property this will be, it could only be 2 bedrooms and might be a flat, but to have a self contained private space will be luxury in comparison to our current home.
I am trying not to get my hopes up and instead of thinking about 7-9 days I'm focusing on something else - Samuel has a school residential trip the week after next and that's at the forefront of my mind for now. Oliver also starts nursery next week. He will be going two mornings a week and this will allow me some 1:1 time with Isabella.
All in all life goes on, although I still find it rather odd continuing our normal activities - I feel like I should be doing more to get us out of here - but really at the moment there is nothing more we can do but wait.
I shall leave you with a collage of my children having fun these last few days.
