God that was an effort - getting Shou to sleep tonight.
I didn't get round to blogging last night because hub and I had bowl of popcorn and a beer in front of the Sunday night movie which was 'happenings'. Not impressed with how that ended but it was nice cuddling up and watching it anyway.
I had worked myself up mentally for hub being away weed eating all day yesterday. He left at 6am and come 9am and the kids and I were doing fine. Nobody was planning on attacking anyone else and I still thought we would probably make it through the day without threats of disinheriting them or throwing them to the lions.
Hub walked through the door at ten past nine. So many men and weed eaters had turned up that the job had been finished in three hours. Definately helped and made the long weekend a lot more mummy friendly.
Solar Panal man's wife Chiemi and son Tyson came round yesterday morning and this morning Coffee Chiemi and her three boys arrived to play until lunchtime. Breaks up the day and it is so much easier watching the kids if they have someone to play with. Managed to get all the kids down for a nap this afternoon but Shou wasn't having a bar of it yesterday. That on top of his ten to five morning wake up and he was so completely exhausted that he set himself a new going to sleep record of six seconds. Wish it was that easy every night!
Not really much else to report. I still haven't got my period but this, and everything else has been set aside by a talk I had with one of my best friends last night. At 36 weeks pregnant she didn't feel her baby move for a day and went to have a check-up. For yet unexplained reasons her baby's heart has stopped moving. She is going in to be induced on Wednesday and then give birth to her baby. The first and last thing she will be doing for her baby daughter is to organize a funeral.
I am at a loss - at both the pain her husband and her must be going through and the absoulute useless-ness I feel at being so far away and not being able to do anything. I doubt there is anything I could do anyway but being able to be there and hug her and just listen or help look after their three year old daughter, anything.
So tonight, this week and Wednesday and everyday thereafter, my thoughts go out to my friend and her loss.
Lots of love and big hugs.
