Poor Lia is completely exhausted. She is 7 months old now and she has carried a great weight on her shoulders since the day she was born. She has, with almost no assistance, carried the burden of making sure that I don’t get more than four hours sleep at a time. Well, as you can imagine, seven months of that can take its toll on anyone.  So last night, Lia just couldn’t cope with the responsibility any more. We have moved her into a bedroom with Libby this week and both of them have coped admirably, but it is clearly tiring work because last…

Well what do you know. Hubby thinks that my last post wasn’t entirely factual (it was). He seems to take offence at me producing something mildly amusing at the expense of cold hard facts (knob). So to satisfy hubby, here is an accurate account of our week since my last Thursday Photo post.  Friday: Nursery, eat, sleep, eat, sleep.  Saturday: Soft play, eat, sleep, eat, sleep. Sunday: Swimming (just me), swimming (everyone), eat, sleep eat, sleep.  Monday: Singing group, eat, sleep. Drama group, eat, sleep. Run (just me).  Tuesday: Drop Libby at her nan’s.

And while you’re at it, how is it that child number two, at 30 weeks old is still keeping me awake for most of the night when child number one slept through from eight weeks old? Answers on a postcard please. If you could possibly include a sleep potion with your postcard I would be most grateful, thank you so much. In other news, we are still kicking the sorry arse out of Christmas. Two visits to Father Christmas last week, although one of them happened to be female. Either…

For the girls, this week has mostly been about Christmas.…

Eek!! First post on my new blog! As you can see, all of my old posts have moved across, but they’re not looking wonderful. I’ve moved to my own website because in many ways Blogger was getting a little restrictive – a lot to do with user error I’m sure! So, here we are, all shiny and new! At long last, I can finally say that Lia is slowly getting a little better with her sleeping at night. She is still waking up, but it’s once or twice rather than numerous occasions. She is also getting into a slightly better…
