ups and downs

I was a little worried about my mental state yesterday. Very depressed. I'm totally knackered coz the kids are both teething now and therefore not sleeping which I think is the contributing factor. But still. Very unpleasant to feel that slipping down into nothingness.

Today is a bit better :-) I bought new trainers (sneakers) so I can start training for a 5K next month which cheered me up no end.

Still no job but I guess that is to be expected. Loving being with the kids more. Oh they are hilarious. Mimi is always asking 'Wass tha?" and Pip like to point to anything that is red and scream 'Rey"

My ma bought the kids about a thousand new items of clothing - all brand new and cool name brands like Boden, and M&S. I only buy second hand clothing (either off friends or ebay, bless you ebay) but now they are like real New Yorkers - all fancy and everything.

I am going to dress them up and go to see the big tree at Rockefeller Center. We shall go for winter picnics in the park, the zoo and the museums. There is defiantly an up side to being laid off!!

  1. Not sure if you still have the nanny, but if so, you need to get some serious sleep. You reminded me once that sleep deprivation = depression and it's so true. Take care of yourself. If there's no nanny because of the work situation, then you need to nap when they nap. It's so important! ALso - go to bed as early as they do, take some melatonin and valerian root if you need to. I've been going to bed at 7pm with them for ages now. It really helps, especially now when they're both teething again and I get up about 4 times each night. xxoo
