Our Thursday Photo #19

I’m struggling to believe that it’s Thursday again already, it only seems five minutes ago I was posting last week’s photo from my phone. We came home from our holiday on Monday, having all had a fabulous week. Libby’s speech is developing every day, and she is at a stage now where she generally talks perfect sense, so the odd word of utter nonsense or silly mistake can be really entertaining. Here are a few examples from this week: Libby: I want to go on the radiator. Dad: The radiator? Libby: Yes, I want to go on the radiator (points…

Our Thursday photo #18

On time with my post today, but posting from my phone as we’re on holiday in sunny Pembrokeshire. Camping with two smalls is exceptionally hard work, but we are managing and enjoying the change of scenery. In particular, Libby has enjoyed the beach and a boat ride, hubby is enjoying being of work and spending time with the girls and the dogs are getting plenty of fresh air and walking. For me, I’ve loved the change of running scenery. I managed to run down to the beach yesterday, have a short swim across the cove and back and then run…

This week has been fabulous but insanely busy. I’ve had loads of work on from two different jobs, we’ve been back to Libby’s clubs in the mornings and we had a day out to Drayton Manor. This has meant me working until around 12.30 am most nights just trying to get my work done. Yesterday, my sister arranged for us all to catch up for afternoon tea after Libby had been to playgroup. We went to a lovely restaurant that only opened a few months ago and I’m addicted to it already. Libby was exhausted by the time we got…

Our Thursday Photo #16

Week 16 has mostly been hard work. Posting our Thursday photo on a Saturday is a lateness record even for me, but it’s just been one of those weeks.  I’m back up to two jobs now, I’m still doing my freelance writing but I’ve now started as a transcriber as well. It’s all home based, which is wonderful but it does mean that I have to fit it in around the children, which is pretty hard work.  Libby has had a couple of corking tantrums this week, which has made life rather difficult. We went to paint a bowl at…

Our Thursday Photo #15

Well, here we are at week 15 already. It is strange to think that by the time Libby was the age that Lia is now, I had gone back to work full time. I was commuting for just over an hour each way, getting up at 5 am to feed Libby and leaving the house at around 6.30 am. I would be back shortly before 6pm, to spend a short time with Libby before feeding her and putting her to bed. Lia seems so young and so dependent on me, I feel terribly guilty that Libby wasn’t with me during…
