Monday Bliss

Ok so lets start this again. SO on Monday my awsome next door neighbour took Gabriel with her son Oliver to see the new Toy Story 3 movie. They left at 8.45 so I had to be organised ahead of time and I was sort of.. I had all 3 kids feed and dressed i had made lunch for Niamh to go to playgroup and the only one who wasnt ready was me who wa still in her jamas when Simone came to get Gabriel. Hey its not the first time shes seen me in my p.j's hehehe Niamh and I finally got to play group a little bit late and it was so wet that we stayed in the kinda room most of the morning. I love going to playgroup as it wears the kids out so when we got home Niamh had a bottle and went down for a nap. I ran around and got some washing done and the floor done while the little ones were asleep.
Tuesday is always a day I look forward to as its DAY CARE DAY! I love Maranda she does a great job with them and they love going over. It gives me a chance to get some stuff done without all 3 tagging along behind me too. So off to get the groceries done and then wiz home t get a doctors appointment for Hezekiah who has been coughing alot, it turns out he has Bronchitis so we just have to watch him.
Then as if that wasnt enough Monday morning the phone rings and its Catlyn Allens oldest, shes having some major issues with privacy and trust and safety issues at home and needed some help and advise. Allen has been busy for the past few days trying to get all the kids some help.
I also had my very talented friend Jackie come over today and help me make a tote bag it looks AWSOME! Thanks Jackie your the best! And yes I will post a photo of it as soon as I get some batteries

Some days are like that...

Ok so the last few weeks have been horid for me. The school holidays gave us a chest infection for Gabriel and a dose of nasty croup for Niamh (shes still coughing). Then to top it off Hezekiah developed an infection which made him feel yucky which meant he wanted to be feed more which was every 2 hours that from the start of a feed to the next feed. Then he started to loose weight a total of 1.5 kg in 2 weeks. Then he came out with a rash from head to toe that we spent 2 days at the hospital having checked and as it turned out was just the virus at its tail end. So Allen is still sleeping in the guest room (dont feel sorry for him as he has a queen size bed and a electric blanket without the noise of kids waking him!) Meanwhile baby and I are sharing the bed inbetween getting up to deal with Niamh and her coughing and Gabriel falling out of bed and his midnight tolit run. I've been getting maybe 4 hours of broken sleep a night for 5 weeks now and starting to take its tool on me especially by early afternoon. Very tired with all the other things that I have to do during the week. I tried this morning to get us all ready for early learning at the kinda and it tured pear shaped when no bag could be found Niamh had a crying attack for what ever reason and I just spat it and put everything away and made the executive decision that today was not going to be a good day and I was going to staay home. Would it have been better to take them probably.. would I have pulled my hair out trying to find a bag that is who knows where? probably.. would I have enjoyed speaking to some other mums have a crappy day themselves yeah but hey... some days are like that
