I am having a break from writing job applications to watch Grey’s Anatomy so thought I’d write a quick update while I’m at it. I don’t think I mentioned it but last Friday I got given 4 week’s notice and a list of new jobs to apply for as part of the restructuring. It’s not so bad, and one of the jobs would actually be a step up but it’s been pretty stressful. Last week was crazy busy with end of financial year, and whooping cough has been kicking my ass all over the place and writing job applications has been the last thing I’ve felt like doing. Hence the reason I’m doing it now, the night before they’re due.
K says I’m having mood swings tonight but I maintain I’m just sick and stressed. Still not fun to live with though haha.
At the moment we have K’s two nieces staying with us, and tomorrow they go to their other aunt’s house and we get two of her nephews. It’s been nice and we are so happy that our dog has passed the toddler test! She was only a pup last time we had them to stay but she has been so great with the kids. She was a bit overwhelmed to start with (5 kids standing in a circle and Tai kept running round all of them) but now she’s loving the attention. In fact, she got pooped out before they did tonight.
K is now officially on holidays (but childcare duties for another couple of days) and it definitely didn’t come too soon. Of course it doesn’t help that her darling wife has been coughing so much she hasn’t had a decent night’s sleep for nearly 4 weeks.
And for the ttc update part – after a lot of heart/soul searching we decided to go ahead this month. It’s our first back to back cycle for nearly a year, but it’s CD7 now so all downhill from here!
Off to google the significance and luck rating of the number 11…
