It is that time where I deserve a drink. Who wants to join?

It is the first hockey round of the season starting in 30minutes. I am the secretary of the junior section of the club, this is my first year. So have "managed" with the help of others, getting the 231 children registered, put into teams and training sorted, clearances sorted etc. The number of emails I have "done" over the past 2 months is beyond imagining,  the phone calls etc.

It has been a NIGHTMARE especially with the first round happening at the end of the school holidays here in Vic. Of course, everyone says it is easier after the seasons starts, and I know it will be easier next year.

I hope it is safe to have this drink, if it isn't sorted now, it is probably too late.

Come and join me.

Just poured my first glass of cheap wine.

Been fuming about idiots in my face all day so even the nasty vinegar-esque rose is going down a treat.

This.  Except I managed to scrounge one of DH's bottles of Penfolds and my idiots are recalcitrant uni students who refuse to incorporate feedback into submissions (and then wonder why they get crap grades)

Does the four month sleep regression ever take the form of sleeping well at night but deciding daytime naps are for the weak?

I have to drive DP to his 'male bonding session' and collect him again - after the Easter long weekend police blitz (nabbed twice in 5 mins!) I'm too scared to even have a single sundowner!

When they go "Have you had anything to drink madame?" I need to be able to say "No officer, nothing at all!" otherwise I will burst into tears!!

Damnit... I've got vodka in the freezer and fresh limes aplenty too.... I am SUCH a good partner am I not?

Would it be wrong to try and induce labour at 37+5 just so I can join in? I'm going crazy here.

My kids gave up day sleeps at 3m or so. They did all sleep 8-10pm at night until 8am in the morning so I never complained.

Oh yeah, I am just waiting for DH to bring home the booze (some Champers). Although the kids are going mad atm (like JRA crazy end of holidays) so I may just go for some old flat champers from the fridge in desperation before DH gets home.

AV - I just did lots of going out and doing stuff. The worst part was separation anxiety with DD from 7m-16m.... she walked at 16.5m so once she could walk away from me she was happy but before that she wanted to be near me.

Oh yeah, all 3 of mine were night sleepers and 5-15mins catnappers in the car.

Which works...but doesn't make any progress on essays.  I think I need a new plan...

But I can worry about that next week.  It's about to be the weekend.  DH can be on grizzle-wrangling duty!

I'm in.

My oldest is having a few days away at grandpas so I am planning on having a disgusting dinner of cornchips and dips because I don't have to provide an example of good nutrition.

Just have to get the baby in bed first!
