What a month

Big things at work, big enough that my job is changing - in a good way - i'm just going to be very busy.
But that's on top of an already hectic schedule.

Fuck we are busy.

Normally between parents in law, two aunts, a sister & brother in law, my wife and I, we manage to get through the week with all the kids getting to and from school / day care, nobody starving, cloths washed and enough slack to do get a car serviced or arrange for a fridge to be repaired, pool pumps fixed etc.

This last few weeks between my wife going oversees for work here and there, sister / brother in law divorce, parents in law and aunt traveling for 6 weeks or so Everything is at a constant run. I'm particularly missing Maria (wife's aunt) who helps us with the heavy lifting of child care, school and laundry and tidying around the house mid week (what's so good about traveling to Egypt and Europe any way?). There are some really good things happening in life at the moment but I just don't feel I've got the time to really enjoy it all. Selfishly took some time last night, forgot to make a kids lunch this AM which blew out the already stretched morning schedule. Missing ideal trains, means have to start / leave work later therefore be back at home later.

I've also more than halved my drinking but it's been a bit bingy with all the 40ths and parties - perhaps I'm not sleeping so well.

Any way - don't expect much creative from me, I'm feeling a bit rushed.

Last day of my 30's

A moment to reflect perhaps Think I've done everything and everyone I had planned.
