    Time Out.. The perfect time for thinking about what you're going to destroy next.

    Thanks guys appreciate the support feel on my own here today! two tired little ones here. Been for nap at 1030 instead of 12. Older one has done nothing but stand and stare at me or cry at the door will NOT go off and play! She is under the weather I think. At least I think that is it. I am pretty sure she did go off and play before cos she settled in fine before Christmas but it's hard to remember this week lol! I am a bit anxious about it because her older sister was beyond clingy and very very hard work, and I am concerned it will go the same way. If I sit and play with her she will play but otherwise won't even pick anything up, no interest. Can't play with her all day!!!

    Oh my word 😱. When it goes right it's best job in the world, when it goes wrong it can really go wrong! Roll on 530! Hope your afternoon improves. She is playing now.. Fingers crossed!

    I had a day like this yesterday. Babies taking it in turns to scream their lungs out and a school age child on last day because of bad behaviour. It will pass, the wine and treats will be with you soon. Hope you manage to get some peace.

    I had to have Coca cola at lunchtime today (it's my 'daytime' wine!) ...

    New babe fine ... But screamed until I realised it must be ' lunchtime ' (11.20 am!) 3 x 2 yr boys ... sibling of babe most put out if anyone spoke to babe or babe gave me a cuddle and refused to do anything for himself, 1 boy passing comment on everything everyone did or said and last boy not 100% AND toilet training so needing to be reminded frequently! Plus needing lots of cuddles! Only one boy left plus 2 schoolies ... watching blue peter whilst I have hot cup of tea :-)
