It’s been a while so I figured, hey it’s Blogtober so why not start posting again?
I don’t really remember too much of what I talked about over the last few posts so I’m just going to do a massive update.
So, I finally managed to finish my 40 hours of teacher training for becoming a driving instructor. I’m now at the point of looking for a car and insurance and then I can start teaching which in excited and nervous about.
My son turned 1 and has developed one hell of a cheeky attitude. He loves to steal our seats if we get up, rushing over, laughing and climbing up until he’s sitting where we sat. He also has a thing for butting my wife/his mum? He very rarely bites anyone else, just her.
My daughter is back at school through all this current madness but, she is being safe and careful. Every day I get home she shows me a book slowly filling up with stickers she has earned at school. It’s adorable.
My wife’s fibromyalgia has gotten worse but, the stress at the moment is high for us all. Usually, as soon as I get home, I take the kids so she can rest and work on her crafting business.
As this is being written it is… 2:33 AM Sunday morning. A good friend of mine and old Podcasting buddy Tom are sitting down to record a practice session for our podcast. For the last 3 hours my wife has been coming down stairs to wake my sleeping arse up from the sofa.
About a week ago I messaged Tom asking/ telling him that I want to record some more practice podcast sessions. There is a lot of things going on in my life lately, what with a new job, my wife’s Fibromyalgia, my son being born etc, so it’s hard to keep up with projects that I want to sink my teeth into, like podcasting and making movies.
It’s nice to get back into recording podcasts. Ever since I first heard about podcasts and listened to them, I think maybe 12-13 years ago, I’ve been interested in making podcasts and sharing my opinion with friends online. I honestly don’t know if anyone I record with will ever read these posts but I just want to say, thank you for being awesome and helping me move towards some of my dreams.
My wife has something called Fibromyalgia, I think I’ve mentioned it before but I don’t remember now annoyingly.
For those not bothering to click the link, it’s… So, remember the most intense pain you have ever felt, maybe a fractured bone, or even giving birth. Well, that’s what Fibromyalgia sufferers feel constantly on a daily basis. My wife largely gets the pain in her legs and back, although she has had the pain pretty much all over her body.
Anyway, I’ve been taking a lot of time off of work to help out where I can at home. Even something little like taking my daughter to school helps ease some of the stress off of my wife. We are worried about me possibly losing my job but at the same time, would I want to work for a company that would force me to choose?
My family comes first, always, but does that include financial reassurance?
