So far so good. We are all still alive the mess is manageable and they sleep. We miss him but manage. This particular trip has been postponed twice within a day of departure so part of me and the children is relieved because of the clarity. We even sort of know when dad will be back. Their will be more travels in weeks to follow.
I do need him back sooner then later. I am perfectly ok in caring for the children but I realise tat I care way less for myself wen he is out.; I have a throbbing headache because I forgot to drink yesterday. In the day while he would normally not be home as well. I don't know why this is the case but I see the pattern always when he is gone I find it hard to take care of my self.Maybe because he always makes me feel special like someone you should take care of..
I love him and I am glad my son told me planes never fall from the sky because they have got jet engines and he has painted them!

Monday around 14.15 hours autumn started here in
But well we are ready the wool jumpers are washed. Stew is on the fire, apples are blushing in the fruitbowl and cookies have been baked. Life is good.
I have also found my crafting mojo. Stay tuned! Oh and I am also singleparenting until the weekend. So stay tuned but don’t hold your breath..
