I think in all my years of writing this blog, I've never gone so long without posting. I guess with the arrival of baby four something had to give and it was the blog! I toyed with whether to just end it, never to return, but I don't think I'm done with this space, quite yet... So what have I been doing? Well, there's that cliche stock image, which the media love to use, of a woman juggling all the component parts of her busy life. Imagine that, except with an exceptionally uncoordinated person... Plus, I'm only managing the tiniest amount of print-making and absolutely no writing, so it's pretty much just domestic drudgery and four kids, who never stop talking (and the littlest is included in that). But really, all is well. I'm very much enjoying my days with the baby and the big kids grow more fascinating and engaging the older they get. It's TOTALLY full on and it never lets up. I lose it all the time and I get very frustrated about the gap between what I want to achieve and what I do achieve. It's an inevitable gap, but that doesn't make it easy to accept! And it seems that I have an early walker, (standing independently at 7 months!!), who likes to take very short naps (just like her sister did), so please don't expect too much of me...
