4 Day Weekend

They're nice words those. This weekend isn't as nice as it could be however, with Elizabeth getting sick, and Olivia getting another molar. Very little in the way of sleep happened in this house last night, for any of us. However, the last 30something hours hasn't been all bad. We've been playing games and watching kids tv shows and having lots of cuddles and laughs. I predict another bad night, but all I can do is try to stick to the routine and hope they don't have too many problems with it.

Elizabeth was so funny when her Mummy called and spoke to her on the phone. She was grinning from ear to ear and was waving and shouting 'BYE!!' at the phone after I hung up. I guess she's still a bit afraid to talk into the phone, even after seeing the Pocoyo episode about it a million times.

Surprisingly, I've had enough time to keep up with things around the house. I've managed plenty of washing, a couple of loads of dishes, and bottle cleaning well before needed. AND, I've only had to use one disposable nappy.. well, actually, I didn't HAVE to use it, but it seemed like a waste to use a cloth nappy for like half an hour (as the child was going in the bath soon). Although now that I think about it again, it was kind of a waste NOT using cloth, since the nappy was basically unused and had to be thrown in the bin.

Speaking of the bin, I'm sure one of our neighbourly neighbours was very nice and kind and swapped their broken wheelie bin for our perfectly good one, since now we have one with a busted lid. Either that or it broke the other day when the rubbish was taken by the truck, but I'm fairly sure its a different bin.

Followups to these mundanities and more (or less), after the break (between posts).
