She waltzed out this morning, said she was heading to the airport, to Jo’burg, to see other people.
I wasn’t too upset. She’ll be back tomorrow, mark my words. She always comes back.
And I slipped a slab of Dairy Milk into her laptop bag. So she won’t go hungry.

The cruel reality of the situation is that I have a night with the kids. Alone.

Both of them are sleeping reasonably well at the moment. Just not very concurrently
At the moment, Alex tends to not go to sleep too quickly and he’s up early, K-pu goes to sleep quite easily and wakes up late, but is often disturbed during the night. Which is all well and good when there are two of you to spread the load. However, by crude extrapolation and use of maths and stats only a mother could love, I predict that I will sleep between 10pm – 11pm and 4am – 5:30am. Except for the 10pm – 11pm bit, because I’ll be watching UEFA Cup Europa League footy.
Should this alarming prediction prove to be accurate, I can only advise you that it would be foolhardy to cross my path in any way, shape or form tomorrow.

Yesterday evening was spent playing (and winning) a dramatic football match under peachy skies. And, as this photograph completely fails to illustrate, in gale force winds. There’s a grating sound each time I blink and I’m still crying grit. However, on the plus side, I now feel that I am in a position to recommend sand-blasting as an excellent method of exfoliation.
Just as long as you have control of the process and can halt proceedings before it gets down to the bone.

  1. Wow – one of the “new men”, are we? Respect.

    I don’t have one of those – even though our son is now 16, I’m still doing all the mum stuff, and then every once in a while, the husband has a hissy fit because he doesn’t know things, and then I have a hissy fit and tell him he could pay more interest. A “new man” would just be so much less stressful!! 😀

    Hope you get to catch up on your sleep soon!

  2. HH > I don’t know about that. Mrs 6k does most of the work, but I try to help out where and when I can.

    Mrs 6000 > Yeah, but I doubt that we’ll ever see that Dairy Milk again.

    DW > Would you like the figure in dollars, rupees or rands?
