Half Way...

....through the week!

This morning was cold and rainy and oh-so-windy. I lay in bed wondering if my little seedlings would get blown off the deck where I had placed them on Monday. They were fine. It's sunny now, but cold so we're enjoying the brilliant sunshine the comes through the vastness of west facing windows in our family/meals area.

I never thought I'd say this....but I am so looking forward to spending half a day at work tomorrow. Dh will have the children ~ whether he stays home with them or they do some work related errands with him only time will tell. I've struggled, this holidays, to deal with the kids terribly well. My own stresses and concerns have rendered me impatient and unable to contend with normal childhood nonsense. Add to that a boy who seems to have had a serge of boy-ness and we've just not done well together.

On a better note ~ we have booked someone to come and tune the piano next week (10 years and 4 moves too late....). I have also managed to secure an appointment with the naturopath in town, for myself and Miss Mischief. I can't wait to see her about all our going's on. Heaven knows the doctor was less than helpful.

Good luck at the Naturopath..

DH has similar symptoms to those you briefly described that Miss Mischief is experiencing.. we are still trying to track down the cause with the help of our naturopath but haven't found it yet.

I hope your tuned piano brings a smile to your heart.

Kind Regards

Hope the kids had fun with DH while you got a much-needed break. There are holidays when the kids and I are in sync and have a great time, and others when I'm just counting the days til they go back to school!
