The extra hour when you should be asleep…

…but instead you are sat up, achieving not actually a lot but just enjoying the fact that the last hour of the day is the only time when there aren’t other demands on you

Actually that’s not technically true – I’m sat here tying raffia ribbons (actually is it a ribbon or just twine or what?) around little plastic bags with number 8 cookies in for Bigger to take into school for her almost birthday and I’m fretting about how to get everything packed up and into the car before the we head off for Easter and to still make it into work on time

Coming back on the cookies just a word of advice, be VERY careful what sort of family traditions you set up mostly because the whole baking in the middle of the night after work thing and then burning the blasted things and having to start over isn’t a whole lot of fun several years and multiple birthdays down the line…  obviously done with love etc and something I want to do because I know it makes them super happy but…

But anyway here I am tying pretty stuff around plastic bags of home baked goods whilst watching Orange is the New Black.  Is that sort of inappropriate?  Possibly but hey it is what it is

My brain is fried – I should be sorting out the sleeves on the cardigan I am knitting (when I say I am knitting I mean I was knitting, I haven’t so much recently… brain fried) or starting the birthday hat I am supposed to be doing for Bigger’s birthday, you know the birthday that is in about 36 hours…

Back to writing lists and ignoring the clock

    Yes! We have pared down many traditions already. It’s all fun and games with the first child, but then have a couple more and all of a sudden you want to kick your younger self.
