EF - that's exactly the problem we have with our hours - we both have to work past 6pm, and all childcare ends at 6. It causes me many sleepless nights and hours of stress! However, we did both know that we would be expected to work like this, so it hasn't come as a huge surprise. I do sometimes long for a standard job without the pressure and risk though! Hope he manages to get something sorted.
PG3 - hope the move goes ok!
CM - great news on the water situation. This is going to sound a bit naff because I'm not sure how to word it, but has your counselling given you a way to reflect on the situation and your response to it, to try and help stop you getting into the same negative spiral in the future? Your holiday plans sound fab. Maybe we should set up a mums running club holiday house swap so we can all see different parts of the country!
CC - you should do the race I linked to when we were in Switzerland last summer - the course is brutal! I think you should have as many days at altitude beforehand as you reasonably can. I usually feel short of breath going up the stairs when we first arrive at 1550m!
