|I have received a number of emails now concerned after my welfare. I apologise for the hiatus. I had trouble including images, and it all seemed too hard.|
At the end of July, Kirsten went back to work, and the jobs market being what it is - and Kirsten being a lawyer - it had to be full-time. I did 5 days child-care for a while until Kirsten could juggle some centre-based care. I only ever do one child per day, but now it is down to 4 days per week, with the occasional Wednesday afternoon off, too.
I manage quite well I think. We have the occasional blow-up, Alannah and I, but we have just finished the first lot of pre-school holidays, and we are still friends! Mama manages to work from home a bit during the school breaks. I am not sure whether this is a good thing or not.
Last week, Juliet celebrated her first birthday. The first shot in this post was at Northbridge Baths on Sunday afternoon. These next two are Alannah helping Mama ice the cupcake fountain for the party last Saturday, and the birthday girl in full-celebration mode.
