I woke up feeling like poop this morning but I went to my sons prize giving as no matter how awful I may have felt I was not going to miss that for anything. I am incredibly proud of my young man and even though he despairs of me ever being in his words a ‘normal’ Mom when it comes to school occasions I do my best to look like a sensible Mom for his sake. So I sprayed my hair down as best I could hiding all the thinning bits, stuck some slap on my face and off I went. He strode right past me without even noticing me bless him as he went down to take his seat and I sat and had a cuppa with my mom as we waited fro Dad who was parking his car.
Anyway we took our seats and were listen to the school orchestra which was all rather jolly and nice and then Ben’s Dad came in with his Mum. I was a little shocked as she has aged a lot in the year since I saw her last, but it was all very civil and polite which was good.
Anyway all the speeches commenced and the Principles yearly report was pretty good then onto the prize giving YAY !
My wonderful son is the third to go up the stairs……………….
You can’t tell I am proud of him really can you ?
After more speech-i-fying from our member of Parliament Damian Collins and much as I don’t do politics he was actually rather good. Anyway it was all over and the school lay on coffee and cake so off we all trotted and I made small talk with my ex husband and Mother in law which oddly was not as onerous as in past exchanges. I even took photos of Ben and his Dad together which I will be emailing him, my Dad took one of me and Ben which is a major feat I must say. I just wish I looked less blimp like but of course that is all down to the meds and that is my excuse and I am sticking to it so there !
Anyway here is blimp like me with my wonderful, amazing and tall son Ben
My son and his Dad
So even though I feel mega wiped out now it was sooooo worth it and I see him again on Sunday as it is Mothers Day here in the UK so I get to spend even more time with my super special young man.
A slightly more cheerful
