Well Yesterday Alice started back at nursery, where she will be going Monday to Friday and staying for lunch Mondays Wednesdays and Fridays.
Life has instantly returned to normal which following 7 weeks of chaos feels like utter bliss.
Yesterday I was able to take Thomas round Tescos and do an entire shop with him blissfully sleeping in the buggy and still have time for a play and a tidy up before collecting Alice.
Today started out a little more hectic and I thought my morning had be scuppered when I was putting Thomas's coat on already a couple of minutes late. I smelt a bad smell and thought it was his coat tried to look and found poop squashed ut the back of his trousers and consequently everywhere else me included.
Not letting this down hearten me I stepped him off showered him down while a very helpful Alice ran upstairs for his clean clothes.
5 Minute late to Preschool but no matter and then I whisked Thomas off to playgroup at our local community centre.
He had a ball and we still had time to come home, him to nap me to tidy and then walk down to pick Alice up. We even fed the ducks on the way home!
2 days in and the downstairs of my house would at least get a past on a hygiene inspection (I reckon anyway!).
I have not felt this relaxed in weeks, despite the fact Ive got work 2 nights in a row.
