Tuesday 26 January 2016 Got up at 6.00am, organised and took all medication, showered, dressed and applied makeup before 7.00am. We had time for thirty minutes of cuddles in front of the tv before leaving the house. H was perfect. This is the way forward. Sarah has indigestion. She has my full sympathy. Perhaps chocolate […]

Monday 25 January 2016 I have an early morning meeting. Hubby left the house for 6.15am. H didn’t want to get up. She didn’t want to get dressed nor did she want to put on her coat and shoes. She wanted to play. The five minutes of Peppa Pig jigsaw fun on my bedroom floor […]

Friday 22 January 2016 4.00am It turns out that H is poorly. I hate it when she’s poorly; but a little part of me is relieved that this is a reason behind her behavior yesterday, isn’t either a) that she doesn’t like Mummy; or b) I’m failing miserably in my attempt to raise a happy […]

Thursday 21 January 2016 It’s extremely cold today. Hubby left by 6.20 am. I feel guilty about his twenty minutes’ walk to the station and vow to buy him a fluffy hat, gloves and scarf if I make it out of the office at lunch time. My mind wanders across the shopping centre to Starbucks. […]

Wednesday 20 January 2016 The morning started well. Last night I arranged H’s clothes in a lovely neat pile ready for the morning. I dictated correspondence on an urgent file and placed the file in a bag by the door next to my handbag. The dictaphone was safely returned to my handbag. I even managed […]

Tuesday 19 January 2016 Today was better. H was perfect. We arrived to nursery early and had time to jump in muddy puddles like Peppa Pig (Oink). I dictated instructions to FP at a particularly impressive pace, dealing with all files requiring work. I submitted a claim form that I had found particularly challenging, (I […]

Monday 18 January 2016 I woke up this morning to the delightful cries of “Mummy?… Muuuuuuuuuumy”. Where’s Mummy’s iPad?” Monday mornings are never easy in winter. The house is colder and the alarm is louder. Today is also a bad day for coughing. I generally cough all the time. Everything triggers a cough. I cough […]

Wednesday 14 January 2016 Today I received a beautiful bouquet of flowers from a happy client.  I can’t keep them in the office because Sarah is allergic to flowers (and most cosmetics, cleaning products, dust, dairy, wheat and oats).  She is the one person I interact with who makes me feel normal.  The flowers will […]

January 2016 – Thank Goodness for Barbra Streisand My parents did a great job of keeping me healthy and happy as a child with regular hospital visits, physio therapy and endless oral and intravenous antibiotics. However, when I was five years old I had a particularly aggressive chest infection. I was absent from school for […]

Tuesday 12 January 2016 We made it to the car this morning with only one accident. “Mummy, I’ve done a poo on the floor“… I’m not going to dwell on that. I’ve taken all prescribed tablets plus a few herbal ones from Boots and I’ve managed to squeeze in all inhalers, my nebulizer and my […]
