I'm still fighting off some sort of bug and am SO tired. Struggling with my sleep, the previous 3 nights I've been waking up to express between 1-3am, then Michaela's been waking for breakfast at 6am. So have had very broken and not adequate sleep for someone who's also tired from anaemia. Have a few appts (blood test, one with the nurse re my stitches as one has not dissolved/fallen out and is a little sore) and jobs and things going on this week. And then on top of all that Michaela is quite demanding during the day. She's managing to sleep through from about 11.30pm to about 6am, which is great, but then wanting to feed and have attention more during the day. So 9 times out of 10 at the moment, it feels like when I get online I either have a baby in one arm or one hand is needed for expressing. Add Daniel into the mix as well, who is exhibiting "babyish" and challenging behaviours and needing a lot of reassurance so it's pretty chaotic once he gets home from school. And then am going to bed SO early (though Shaun let me sleep in this morning and I'll be doing the late shift tonight) mostly.
So I'm here a few times a day but mostly reading and maybe making the odd post. I also do visit FB again mostly to read or play SongPop which I can do one-handed and uses v little brain power. Hope you're all ok and thought I'd just let you know why I'm quiet. Have absolutely zilch inspiration for new topics and I hope you can forgive me that for now, I'll post up something if I think of it.
