And, far from being restful, today has been netball, shopping, ice-creams, lunch and quiet time for the kids as I get dinner ready (defrosting chicken for slow cooker) since Madame2Bar is at an all day craft thing and then has a movie tonight. This afternoon will be grocery shopping, refereeing children's fights and some cleaning up around the place. Have scheduled sleepy time for 5 minutes after kids are in bed.

I'm surprised you kept going! A few times you were almost running on empty.

I'm also happy you liked my way of supporting you through the week but thought Friday advances would be pushing you too much.(Plus I knew you would need your strength for Saturday! but it turned out OK!)
