Random Thoughts

On the way home from work one day this week, me and Princess Lollipop got in the car and as I started the engine the Disney CD started playing - "Heigh ho, heigh ho, its home from work we go." No kidding - that's the exact point it started at - it amused me all evening lol.

Princess Lollipop's sleep is getting better!! Finally!! After 16 months home!! She still wakes just as frequently in the night, but she is a LOT calmer about it. She either reaches out to hold onto me, or she says "Mummy" in quite a calm voice. Before it would be screamed out in what seemed like panic or terror, but she was awake and could be comforted, so not an actual night terror. Whatever reassurance she needs, she must now be getting it and I have hopes of her being in her own room again before she starts university!!

Even with short hours and only 4 days a week, being a working Mum is HARD! I am so tired in the evenings and am only just starting to get into the swing of keeping up with the washing etc!! However, it is also fun and interesting and I'm really enjoying it :-) I realised that I've forgotten to take my anti depressants most days this week, and haven't felt like I'm sinking back into the black pit - so that's a great improvement. I'm also managing not to pig out on all the customer choccies we have on display, I limit myself to two or three a day and I'm mostly sticking to it!! It is only my first week, so I'm hoping this keeps up!!

Yay! Oh I'm so proud of you Mum :) Boyfriend is proud too, I dragged him over here to read that bit :) He's also jealous about Dad's possible photography thing and really pleased for Dad :) See, you just needed to get out of the house and do something, we kept telling you to get a hobby! Keep it up, you're doing great :)
