Where did that week go to?

I'm sorry that I haven't been around much this week. I do not know where the week went to.

Life has been pure hectic, on all fronts.

In school, we have a WSE (whole school evaluation) next week, and boy did my inner perfectionist (IP) decide to come out! I told her to go away, but she kept coming back, often just as I put my head on the pillow at night. Whispering little things in my ear "wouldn't it be good to buy new folders for your notes, and to colour co-ordinate them?" - I gave in on that one. "It's time to do a complete clearout of your press"... "you need to re-write all your notes" - you get the picture. I'm struggling to keep her at bay, so if anyone has a magic cure, please let me know!

I've been busy with aromatherapy too. A local school invited me to talk to their Transition Year students, which I'm delighted to do. Just not this week, please. (Luckily, my available times this week didn't suit, so it's postponed for a couple of weeks). Which gives me a chance to properly prepare the talk!

And it's been busy with the kids- it's music exam season! And Feis season too! So lots of running around.

Then we got invited to a table quiz fundraiser at the primary school where our kids went. It was a fantastic school, our kids got such a good education there, and we've still loads of friends there, so we went along to that. IP kept whispering in my ear "you should be at home, doing more notes" . Guess what? Going out was the best thing I did all week- showed me there is more to life than WSE's. And guess what else? Our team WON! I feel a bit of a fraud saying "our team", cos in reality I contributed very little. I have no memory for general knowledge, but luckily Hubby is my opposite on that front, and a friend at the table could fill in the gaps in his knowledge. So the other friend and myself got to sit back and enjoy the night, and the team came home with 4 lovely bottles of wine for our efforts!

Plus I won this prize in the raffle.

Would you like to see what's inside? Of course!

Just what I need, and even though I could easily make these myself, it's nice sometimes to use something made by another. And Rose oil is one of my favourites!

So, it has been a good week, if a busy one.

I just hope that I can do myself and my school justice in next week's evaluation. My job doesn't depend on it, but my pride does.


  1. Sounds like you have a lot on your plate Mimi.
    Be sure to work in some time for yourself.
    What a lovely prize!
    You'll do fine in the evaluation - I know it. :)

  2. I'm having issues with comments - mine, not yours.

    My mother used to tell me to go out and enjoy myself the night before an exam. Your good time just proves her advise to be good.
    What a timely invitation - and you won the raffle!

  3. I am tired just reading about your business!! I love Loccitane... Lucky, lucky girl!

  4. Wow, you have had a busy week! I think that you found the perfect solution to your IP, a nice evening out with friends. And the wine doesn't hurt either.
    I love the folders in color co-ordinating fashion. That is something that really speaks to my IP. :)
    I'll be thinking of you during your next week. I hope that it goes well.

  5. You have been busy and congrats on the win.

    Nuts in May
