Right at the start of this post, I must apologise for the lack of post thus far this month (I have been trying to regularly post two entries per month). Since Sam has started nursery, life, as you are about to find out, has been very busy indeed.
So, as I said, Sam has settled in to nusery school, and is doing brilliantly. He loves it! He enjoys making things, and being creative, and has some new friends. This means that every day, with the exception of Fridays, I have a 2 hour period in the day which is child free! This is still a bit of a novelty to me, and I am still trying to adjust to it!
Anna is all settled into her new primary 2 class, with a new teacher, and some new classmates. So far, all is going well, and we are discovering that her reading skills are a long, long way ahead of her peers. She has also taken a real liking to playing football, and has started attending an after-school football club on Fridays. She, and Sam, are both growing up faster than I may be able to handle!
Cate is exceptionally busy at her work at the moment, which has resulted in her having to fairly frequently work late. She still loves her job, but is currently finding it very frustrating and stressful.
I have been busy in the studio with session work, and with a Full Production Package (Recording, mixing and mastering package I offer) client, who has come in to cut a 5 song EP. I have also been working with a good friend and professional colleague – Johnny Geib – in Chicago (all without ever leaving Edinburgh) on some tutorial videos, covering songwriting, mixing and mastering, and some advanced techniques in mixing using our DAW (Music production software) of choice, PreSonus’ Studio One 3 Professional.
As a result of walking my kids to their school and nursery, I have been finding myself getting fitter. This is mostly due to the fact that through both drop-offs and pick-ups, I am walking approximately 8 miles per day – 40 miles per working week. So, I am feeling healthier than I have done in a long time.
So, that about wraps up this post. Next time, I shall be reflecting upon reaching the rather marvellous age of 40.
Until next time……..
