Dear impromptu visitors…

While I understand that you just wanted to see us (the children) I ask once again (for the umpteenth time) that you call or text first. I’m not trying to be awkward or rude. I don’t mind you coming round to visit us (the children) but having small, messy humans (Tasmanian devils) living here means […]

Don’t drink – ever ??

Tonights beers were not so kind, either that or they have joined forces with the beers from last night to make me feel super rough. I woke up at 01:30 in the sauna that was my bedroom as Nina had decided to join us in bed. Sometimes this is ok but tonight I couldn’t handle […]

Play time

Today has been enjoyed with sunshine, picnics and catching tiny fish in the ford down the road – parents everywhere reminding their children to ‘stay in the shallow bit’, ‘don’t hit your sister’ and ‘put that fish in some water before it dies’. It has been sponsored by the smell of sunscreen and phrases such […]

Dear husband…

Dear husband, While you’re treating yourself to a lay in its business as usual for me.  Ninas jabbering away shouting ‘I WANT THAT’ at every advert that comes on and wanting detailed discussions about Ben and Holly.

Last night the girls were up until 10:30 – as much as I love them, I’m ready for them to go to bed after in the night garden. Immediately. Some days I could stand at the bottom of the stairs smiling and waving ‘see ya!’. Bobbi wanted to attach herself to me and create a […]

I’m melting…

I woke up in my own bed this morning. It was magical. Nina slept all night in her own bed (tent) – wonderful. Bobbi slept in her own bed until 02:30 then came in for a quick feed before passing out again – fan-fucking-tastic ?? If my morning had had a sound track it’d have […]

Ffffffff…

Another crappy night. The boss decided 2am was play time once again but she didn’t want to play on her mat.  Instead, she thought it’d be great fun to kick the shit out of me for a bit. I had to hold her while she thrashed around like a punchy octopus. Apparently (according to the […]
