Thanks to those of you who checked in via email. I can't remember how long it is since I posted, and I'm not going to look now, but I'm sure it's ages. It's been a terribly busy time. Pob and I were in Florida, then I came back to lots of urgent work, then had to go to Vegas for a week for work without Pob, which was really really tough, then came back to a clingy Pob and even more work, and have been working mostly til midnight each night with no down time during the day other than the 45 minutes I see Pob for in the morning, and the hour or so in the evening before I start work again. The week after next I'm off to Austria, to run the training course where I usually take Pob, but this time no one could come with me so I'm leaving her again. Which I don't like to think about. And this weekend H is away riding his motorbike, so no respite for me.
It probably sounds worse than it is, but it's not so awful. Junior seems to be doing ok, although he's having a quiet day today which makes me nervous. I think he is generally less busy in there than Pob was, but hard to tell if that's poor remembering, or just that I've been too busy to notice. We did end up in Labour and Delivery for a check last weekend as I had some gastric bug and had been vomiting for 24 hours, so they told us to come in for a check. Because it was Easter weekend, the place was understaffed but was having several emergencies, so we waited quite a long time, which was no bad thing as I just slept. Eventually they gave me some fluids, a shot of compazine and gave me some more to take home, and that was that. I had a good night's sleep and felt a lot better the next day. No drama really.
Will write something more interesting soon. Pob is continuing to talk up a storm, but is also doing a lovely line in tantrums and screaming. I guess it's just normal development but it's fairly wearing at times.
