Wow, things have been busy. This year is really flying! I can’t believe that in less than three months time, I’ll be a mama of two…exciting but oh so scary too!!
So life has been busy. Ok, maybe not so much busy as tiring. I’m getting heavier and can’t seem to slow the pace although I understand this needs to be done.
Ethan started creche last week (another post for another day!) and it’s really gone a lot better than I expected. I expected tantrums and clawing onto mama for dear life, but it’s been a serious breeze.
So, B (our nanny) is on her own at home until 1 every day. Ethan’s at school only half day at the moment hopefully until the end of the year – in the new year, we’ll switch to full day. I’m really hoping that I’ll cope with the midday pickups until then. At any rate, he’s home at 1 and then sleeps for two hours, so really, B is a lady of leisure. As a result, I’ve been trying to give her something extra to do every day. Today I asked her to cook dinner – well, cook the meat (she asked if she should boil my beef cubes??!!!!), boil the rice and put the veggies in the microwave. I took her through what I want last night and I wrote it all down this morning…we’ll see how it goes…pilot phase, day 1 🙂
The hubster is now working from Centurion and now takes the Gautrain to work which is working quite well for him. He says it’s a real pleasure…we’re only about 10minutes from the Malboro station so traffic there and back is a breeze for him compared to the Sandton traffic…but work has been hectic so he only gets in around 7pm.
Otherwise, work on my side is hectic as usual but I’ve got an exciting new opportunity coming up! And talks of shorter hours post maternity leave are sounding positive and in my favour. I also need to start handing over to whoever’s going to do my work while I’m away…6months off, can I get an A-MEN!!!!
Ethan’s been sleeping through the night…alleluia! But on the flipside, he’s been awake at 5am (some days 4am 😦 ). Tired.com. Seriously, how do I get this child to sleep later????
Well…that’s me in a nutshell for now. I’m away on Saturday night for a work offsite so I’m looking forward to a night away.
Till next time, cheers everyone!
