A solid week. Getting better, ran 3km this afternoon with babyG, easy enough, Achilles survivable at that pace. Still doing the antibiotics for another week. May go up and run along the flat several times while everyone else gets to run up in the hills on the trail tomorrow.
No. 1 is off all weekend playing Touch again. Apparently they are playing pretty well, and she is trying my revolutionary new method of hydration, called drinking some water. Works a treat, she says. After all this time...
But the really big news is... we went out and bought a Food Processor. Never had such a smick appliance. Pushed baby food through a sieve for all the others. Not this time, baby. Heh-heh. We think we are so cool, we've rearranged the whole kitchen to allow room for the new appliance. And getting stuff like this when your kids are old enough to enjoy learning to use it is, as the ads say, priceless. We made hommous, shredded up some salad stuff. Feels like a cafe up at Bangalow, at our house tonight. And I am playing No. 2's music "I Ka Barra" by Habib Koite and Bamada. I love my kids. How unique and beautiful they all are. Wouldn't be anyone else for quids. Times like this make up for all the hard times and days.
Still have so much to do on the house. Not enough time at home - working hard to keep us going. One day at a time. Older kids' dad is happy and doing well, enjoying girlfriend and the USA, so good times there.
Oop, baby is awake. Playtime for mummies is over. Back again. No. 2 had a go at feeding No. 4. 2QT!
Better go. Masses of housework calling, louder than No. 2's music. CU.
