This week, I know that I am equal parts trepidatious and energised by the writing committments I've made for November. Let the words fall where they may!
I know that watching rainbow fairy princesses read rainbow fairy books makes me smile.
I know that I'm disappointed for her that my 6 year old has a bout of tonsillitis again, after just over two years clear of this bete noir of hers, but that I'm relieved that it seems to be responding well to antibiotics this time.
I know that I am wracked with ambivalence (again) about the toddler and creche, which is rotten timing as a) I will probably need to job-seek in 2012, so she'll likely be increasing her days of necessity, and b) she is well settled on her Thursdays now, so removing her would be disruptive to her routine.
I know that the interminability of housework makes me tired and cranky and stressed far more often than I'd like.
And I know that the arrival of our book package from Booktopia on Thuursday filled the girls and I with shared and untrammelled delight, and that Thursday afternoon and evening saw us all lost in a pile of good books :-)
