Yesterday those of us left behind felt impatient and out of sorts. Lily the cat was clingy and Mae even more so. There was tantrums and tears. Missing Daddy and teething is a rather wretched combination. There were lots of messes and a couple of breakages. Naps were refused and plans to meet friends had to be cancelled. By mid afternoon I surrendered to the chaos. We escaped to park for fresh air....and I ordered in pizza.
Today however was better and the muddle of yesterday seems distant. Four litres of homegrown tomatoes/basil/oregano were simmered together for pasta sauce. Miss Mae even enjoyed some for her dinner (fingers crossed this continues. She has survived the past few weeks on weetbix, yoghurt, cheese and not much else!). Giggles instead of tears. Naps were had. The giant pile of laundry is now folded and the house is vacuumed and tidy. Oh what a difference 24 hours can make.
