Are we nearly there yet? And by there, I mean Friday

So, we're over the hump of the week. Thank goodness. It's only been three days, but I'm not finding full-time work, coupled with two children under two particularly easy. It'll be the lack of sleep that's the main problem. Baby Martini only tends to wake up once between about 11pm (I'm just waiting to do that feed now) and 7am - but that one feed does really make all the difference - it means no more than four hours in any one stretch. And I actually need about ten. I am actually slightly worried that I may be scaring my co-workers - although they are still too polite to say anything - which is at least one bonus to freelancing. 

It is, in all honesty, slightly weird to be back in the workplace. My brain actually did hurt on Monday - it's been quite a while since I had to look at stats or write a press release. Plus, I missed Homes Under The Hammer. But, having a nanny is absolute bliss. As well as the necessary caring for the baby (good), she cleans (without asking), she does the washing and, joy of joys, she sterilises the bottles and prepares the feeds. That is my least favourite job and is worth the money right there. I'll be sad when the day comes that BM is old enough to attend nursery.

So, three days down, two to go. Roll on Friday. Mr. Martini and I might go for a quick drink at the local (if I'm still awake). Then it will be home for a takeaway to see in the weekend. Rock and roll.
