Good things, bad things
Bad thing: Feeling like my life is one big chaotic mess, with no time to do anything, and doing everything that I can fit in really badly.
Good thing: Sweet things from my big girl remind me that the chaos doesn't matter: "I like you and you like me - but who is the loveliest?"
Bad thing: My new haircut is a disaster, making me feel even more minging than I did before.
Good thing: I managed to run (with a smidge of walking on the really steep bits) 3 miles last night.
Bad thing: I despise my haggered face and post-baby body shape.
Good thing: But I met a lovely young man this week who thought I was 27.
Bad thing: Still having dilemma about whether to send G to school in September (it's full-time every day for the nursery class here - she's only three!) and sick of every other person telling me she's bored with me at home and "she needs it".
Good thing: A neighbour saying "you're such a fab mum", just at the right moment.
Bad thing: Impending redundancy from part-time job.
Good thing: But have interview for another, much groovier one on Thursday.
And amidst all the chaos, there is always chai, books, baths and cake.
Happier blogging will resume shortly.
