Wow it's good to have some quality time with Daddy and Aaron, today, after acting like a clucky Mother Duck to Aaron and his cousins for the past fortnight.
Home seems empty but in a calm way, not a bereft way. Even Aaron seems to be "chilled" rather than lonely. As usual it is because he always taps into and feeds off my mood. I should try to remember that when I am stressed.
Ooooh here he comes... maybe I won't get to finish this blog post after all. We plan on "Aaron's bed" shopping today. We don't need to get a mattress thank goodness as I will be reviewing this one: Dormeo Memory Deluxe when it arrives.
It's amazing how you only feel tired when you stop. Up until now I was running on adrenaline, but now my body has said "hey Lady, time to slow down" and I am listening. I have to. My energy reserves are depleted.
As much as it was tough being a Mum to Four lately I did occasionally get chance to sit down
And it wasn't always in barefeet
I have such bad plantar fasciitis that putting my feet up sometimes was a necessity, unless I want to be on Ibuprofen every hour of every day!
A bit of a sort out, when I was doing more cooking and cleaning than I ever have in my life - 33 meals in 11 days x 5 - meant I came across a box of dishes that we got 13 years ago as a wedding present. I really love them. A lot of breakages in recent years meant I didn't have a complete matching set of anything so this is great. Long may they last. Washing up is a bit of a novelty whilst I have these (all in one piece).
At Lollibop I even got chance to sit and have a coffee - thanks for a great chilled out stand Vita Co Co for Kids.
The great thing about being surrounded in little people is that there is always a photographer onhand so I am not just limited to selfies :-)
So bye for now, and wish me luck bed shopping. Sorry I have not blogged as often lately, but I've been busy busy busy.
