Well, it seems that the reason my blog died, apart from the aforementioned audience issues and a general lack of things to write about beyond the baby smiled/cried/slept/didn’t sleep and what we were having for tea, was that I have no bloody time to write it. Right now I have precisely 6 minutes before I have to leap in the car and rescue the last-born from preschool (tears at going-in time again, right until she sat down, found a toy and said bye mummy). We will then come home for half an hour before it is time to collect numbers 1 and 2 from school, where they have stayed for “film club”. I don’t generally encourage film club (it is much as it sounds with a dvd for an hour) but this term with other commitments it was that or Bible studies so what were we to do.

Six minutes is loads! Loads! Although actually if I went and put the shopping away, as I probably ought, it would be more like 2 minutes. Which is plenty of time to type inaccurately what I want to type, but sadly not enough time to muster my thoughts and decide what that is. Mentally of course I used this precious home-alone time to prepare a nutritious meal in order to spend quality time with my offspring on their return. It never quite comes off.

We are having the sitting room decorated. Our decorator is a very nice chap, a real village stalwart (he has 8 children! So is related to most of the inhabitants), but I do find it difficult having people in the house. I am quite good at remembering the cup of tea two sugars every hour and a half but I feel a need to appear busy and productive at all times, which is frankly exhausting.

    Sounds very familiar!! And have you noticed that time around 4.30 goes faster than any other?
