Half Term Nearly Over

Well half term is nearly over and we have all survived! Visiting plenty of indoor soft play areas has worked although I still haven't plucked up the courage to visit the zoo, maybe at the weekend. I have also managed to complete my first assignment for my creative writing course so for the next 2 or 3 weeks I will be waiting anxiously for the marks to come back.

The major point of stress came not from the kids but an AWOL hubby who apparently slightly tipsy (charitable interpretation) managed to lose himself in Camden for 5 hours! This combined with an irritable 16mth old who thought sleep time had finished at 1am and a mouse, bird or as yet other unidentified pest creating merry hell in the loft did not lend itself to a good nights sleep.
One lovely thing that has happened recently is felt the baby move. Oh yes did I mention that despite the madness of family life I thought I would complicate matters and have another one. Guess bubs is already getting fed up with Mummy's stress! Still we have plans for tomorrow and then it is the weekend and then back to school!

Reading through your blog and hugely impressed by all you are managing to achieve. Yes, coping with a grown up male child can be trying, not to mention the younger versions! I remember Tumbletots - that name brings back happy memories. My kids used to love it. Tumbletots was a new venture when my children were little. That dates me, doesn't it? Let us know how you get on with your assignment. What did you have to do? It sounds daunting.
