I'm with you on the buckets of water Caro - have enjoyed all the videos though (well, the first 50 at least...) - Minks loved your contraption for tipping water, a proper professional job!
How are the kids doing Caro, are they taking your hair loss etc in their stride? I remember you worrying about what you were going to tell M. Hope you get some relief tomorrow - ironic with tales of CM's colleague and his toilet visits !
Off to Bedford tomorrow afternoon for my sister's wedding on Saturday where I'm a bridesmaid and Sophie's a flower girl. All a bit stressful with kids in tow, sharing family room in Holiday Inn for 2 nights, having to keep them up late for a rehearsal tomorrow night then the wedding on Sat etc etc...hope it all turns out alright and at least they'll have a couple of days to recover before school starts!
I'm a bit worried about Sophie at the moment as she's started saying she's rubbish and useless at things that she can't do first time e.g. skipping, gymnastics, trampolining - the second 2 she is definitely competent at as she has gymnastics lessons every week! Then she's burst into tears twice in the last 2 days because of it . I don't know if she's just tired or something or if she genuinely thinks it - she is generally pretty good at and quick to learn most things so I'm worried she doesn't know how to cope with failure, or am I reading too much into it?? Had a long chat with her tonight but not sure it made much difference.
Anyway, just finished sewing the hems on Nicky's wedding trousers - not brilliant but they'll do! Off to bed now, night all.
20 min easy run is more like a recovery run, but if you push the pace or do a bit of 5 mins fast, 1 min recovery etc it's actually a good session. Don't be hard on yourself if you haven't been running for a while!
You are hardcore Lotte, well done on the win - I haven't won a running race since school sports day so take what you can get .
Ah the nappy change halfway through...I remember that too! Both mine used to just doze off straight away, which was handy if you needed to get them to sleep but not so much for feeding purposes. MW made me wake him up every 3 hours even at night which killed me and I regularly slept through my alarm, so he got fed around every 4-5 hours . But anyway, it turned out he had a serious heart condition so it was probably related to that.
I hated the last stages of pregnancy Sonya, from 38 weeks onwards (my mum was convinced I'd be 2 weeks early!) and S was 9 days over and N 2 days. I was a complete waddler by the end too but then I did have monster babies!
TT - I had to strip Nicky and tickle him to stop him nodding off and it used to take aaaages. I think as they get older they get better at it but I never got to that with either of mine - supplemented bottle instead.
Thinking of you Caro. Take each day at a time and they will pass and things will be easier again. I am so impressed with your exercising too!
