Hm. Oh yes, back to reality on Thursday… people ordered things on Xmas day so MF was in to parcel. SHe and i (mostly she) wrestled the place back into some sort of order, she parcelled and then we all had lunch with LF, Auntie Sue and the cousins when they arrived. Am always glad of our “no presents between cousins” thing for Xmas on this side of the family – makes it all about the company and much less stressful for the 2 slightly AS girls that the family combo entails. Everyone had a lovely time and by this time we had produced the Wii at the end of a treasure hunt (and after rooms had been tidied!) so much gaming went on (i was not good at bowling at the end of an entire bottle of Baileys!) Auntie Sue gave the girls cinema tickets, sweets and a lunch voucher for us all, which we appreciated and thought was incredibly thoughtful and excellent. Enjoyed the 24 hours very much.
Friday and Saturday are hazy; volcanoes, chemistry, d&d, tidying, parcels, sleeping, shopping for wii games, visiting Nana, eating and reading have loomed large. I’ve got DS Settlers now and i like it very much, so that has taken up some time. Other than that, not sure.
Sunday blitzed the little girls rooms and swapped some furniture about in preparation for decorating and refurnishing the big girls room in the next little while. Lots of Wii, mainly Cooking Mama (argh!) and odds and sods elsewhere. Feeling rather down tonight as the prospect of another year, this year in particular being the last one where i really want to risk having a baby, having no hope of doing so and feeling shockingly broody along with colossal hormones combining to make things feel very dreary. Can’t believe how bad it still is at times.
Wish i was a penguin.
