I am soooo tired!!!

I simply adore each of my 3 children and am extremely lucky to have them but dear God they know how to ruin a perfectly good day before it is has even begun. I finished work last night at some ungodly hour then came home to the beautiful silence that was my children all fast asleep only to have 4 hours sleep then be jolted awake by the sound of Meatball going off his tits about god knows what! I love 4am in the morning, it is such a peaceful and tranquil time, well it's supposed to be!!! So after trying in vain to get him back to sleep I gave up and got up only to be further screamed at until the milk was ready. And of course now the larger 2 boys have awoken from their slumber and Meatball has drifted back to a peaceful sleep, I love motherhood! I am resigned to the fact that if I don't get at least an hour of sleep in today I am completely screwed for this evenings shift at work! Did I mention that I love motherhood!!!

I am back at work for 3 weeks whilst another girl gets married, I was shitting myself thinking that I would not remember anything and fail dismally but yey for me I've still got it. Although I will be only doing the 3 weeks work as I honestly just couldn't handle Meatball getting up at silly hours (uncharacteristically) then having to function until late it is a lovely and welcomed change from my 4 walls. And the money is great lol. And returning to work is also out as they have managed to give me 2 trainees to coach and I am still learning the new systems myself after not being there for 2 and a half years, a bit pissed about that but at least they will be taught properly I guess. Well that's it, pretty bloody boring I am, in a nutshell I work and I'm tired-same as the other 2.5million working mothers out there. I am such a whinger lol.....

I took Mum over to see Nana in the nursing home when she is now as she has dementia. She surprised the crap out of me and remembered all 3 of my boys and myself but also my mums name which she rarely remembers, she was having a good day. We took some photos and she chatted to the 2 younger boys as Sketti was with Hubbin working. Even though she has always been Nana {very long story} she is alot more tolerable now, not sure whether it's my age or just the fact that I see a very frail old lady who is lost....probably a mixture of both. Dementia is a terrible thing but at least she is sill alive, us relatives just have to roll with it I guess.

Got to go an break up Lumpy and Sketti before they kill each other....have a lovely day

Super busy but not much doing!!!

Have been rather busy of late but alas not much to show for it apart from 3 fully functioning beautiful children, got to love motherhood. Had a few opportunities to sit down and scrap my ever growing pile of photos, and of course found time to buy more supplies. Meatball as I will call him for now {keeping Big Sis happy lol}, is growing into a fine specimen of a baby. I gave up breastfeeding this week as I have been really ill for the last month and there was no indication of me getting better and meatball was starting to get unsettled as my milk just wasn't cutting it. I was so sad to give up breastfeeding with Lumpy and Sketti, but such a relief has washed over me since I stopped feeding Meatball. He has been a really difficult feeder from day one and I persisted for the sake of him but dear God I am so glad that it is over!

Been applying for a few grants lately trying to improve our local Judo club, fingers crossed that one of them gets approved. We are looking at taking Sketti to state titles in April so I hope that he has a really good time and loves the experience. I left the choice up to him as to whether or not he wanted to go and he said that he would. Means a trip to Brissy so I can catch up with my family YEY! It's good living away as you aren't in each others pockets but it sucks as I miss so much of my nieces and nephews everyday life. {And my brother and sister as well}.

Hubbin qualifies in June so we are in countdown mode for that. I am looking at throwing him a surprise birthday party and qualifying party in one as he qualifies the day before his 33rd birthday. Just got to keep it a secret whilst I work out the nitty gritty of it. His birthday falls on a Sunday so it looks as though he will be hungover for that.
Lumpy has been quite amusing of late, see he is turning 2 next month and has been lets say testing his boundaries. He is just working out who he is and exploring the world but the problem is that he is alot like his father and goes abit too far quite often. Never mind, I manage to see the funny side of it majority of times. Lucky for him that I don't wear any of the make-up that he discovered the other day or he would have been in deep shit. Then of course there was the tissues and the toilet roll and the baby oil in the bathroom, he is such an explorer!
Sketti turns 8 this month which is sad as he is becoming such a big boy. He is such a beautifully spirited child and I am truly blessed to have him as my son. We are looking at getting him a new bike for his birthday along with all of the other crap stashed away in the cupboard. Well I need to go as unfortunately my washing still hasn't worked out how to get itself off the line. Have a truly fantabulous day...
