My assignment that needs to be finished by Sunday, then the one I need to write due the next Sunday, that I haven't wrapped a single present, that I have a heap of end of year stuff to do as P & C treasurer and that I have to write a report for Parish Council and start circulating it to other people to comment on and that I have around 6 different things I need to attend next week on top of the normal stuff.

How to manage my reflux bub an 2 year old so the 2 year old doesn't feel abandoned. I only seem to say "I can't right now" or "later". His behaviour was so much better after 1:1 time tonight but I am on my own during the day. Mummy guilt sucks.

Feeling sorry for myself because I have a hairline fracture of a bone in my right ankle and it is severely sprained, and my left ankle is also sprained. It hurts. It even hurts to sit down on the toilet and get up from it. I'm on crutches so that I can hobble around at home. Cursing that I took a bus home instead of a taxi. I fell down the bus steps when I was getting off, hence the injuries. Thankfully 2yo DD is fine (I was carrying her off the bus).

Also realising that 2yo DD probably has dyspraxia and wondering about the implications that will have for her in the long term.

OP: Try some clove oil or teething gel to dull the toothache.

Sounds like he is trying to hide away from something, is he doing well at school? Plenty of friends? Happy in himself??

how I am going to cope when my do-not-get-along-with moody sister comes to stay for 3 weeks in January.

She doesn't like heat, she doesn't like sun, she doesn't like light nights, she doesn't like BBQ, she doesn't like swimming, she doesn't like beaches.

So why on earth are you coming to Australia in January???

Oh yeah, because my mum is here and you can't bear the thought of my girls spending some time with their nanny for the first time in over a year so by bringing your son over who is used to having nanny to himself 4 days a week you'll make sure my girls get pushed out. Just as last time.

I wish my mum wasn't so soft and hadn't offered to pay for your flights but rest assured dear sister, this time things will be different. there is no way on earth we are spending more on your holiday than you do. As we did last time.

and breathe, sorry that was a bit of a vent there.

Yes (the world), No, no and no.

He suffers from anxiety and depression and has just finished his first year of high school and will be going to a new high school next year which will hopefully suit him better. His best friend from primary school goes there so fingers crossed!!!


Sigh.... DD is soooooo outgoing and has a huge amount of friends. She loves herself and life. How can I have such two different children???????

I'm thinking about how I just found out from my friend accidentally that my significant ex who lives overseas is coming to stay with her & her DP  for a month in January. She knows how I still feel about him, so I'm upset she didn't tell me as soon as it was arranged or even thought of.  Trying to work out if I should tell her I'm upset or if I'm being an idiot.
