Can we all believe we are into April? 8 months since we settled and moved into our dream home. 4 months since I stated my new job (oh my goodness, how I love my job!) And less than 6 months before our little girl turns 3! Life is for the most part good and bright.
Last week's haul!
Soup weather is officially upon us! I've been making up a batch several times a week - highlights so far have been roast tomato, mixed vege and Heidi's leek and broccoli [http://applesundermybed.com/?s=Leek+and+broccoli+soup]
Cosy in a bowl!
V has started a new project at the airport and he has been working nights...
I won't lie, it's not been an easy few weeks. He is struggling big time with adjusting to the hours and being able to sleep for long enough during the day - I hate seeing him so tired and worry that he's going to fall off a crane or something! And it's really difficult having a toddler in the house when he's trying to sleep. Evie isn't a loud child, she doesn't squeal or make obnoxious noises, but ber voice is naturally quite high pitched and when she gets excited it can raise in volume. And it breaks my heart to have to ask her to use her inside voice all the time, and having her ask me whether she can go talk to daddy - having him there in the house and not being able to see him. We will get there. In the meantime, any tips from you shift workers for dealing with sleeping and eating properly? <3
At least we have him home which is always the preferred option!
I'm using my night-shift evening to good effect and poaching some pears for tomorrow morning's porridge. Night
