Agh! I just can't seem to get it together today! The sun is shining, there is a houseful of mums gathering to eat biscuits and drink coffee just on the other side of town and here I sit in all my manky pajama'ed, unshowered glory on the couch while the baby is nestled snug in her babysitter... I mean high chair, munching away on a gourmet feast of spelt toast, honey, banana and rice cake, half of which is gradually finding it's way to the floor.
The house is a tip and I have serious concerns about the damage this is doing to my mental health. Everywhere I turn is another task just waiting to be completed. I packed up our clothes the other morning only to belatedly realize that half of our wardrobe was still in the wash.
Everytime I manage to fill a bag with our various bits and bobs, my tiny helper is right behind me ready to unpack it. It's a very fun game you know. As a result, the detritus of our lives is scattered merrily about and the apartment is looking more like a student lair and less like a family home with every passing second. Every time I go to shower, I half expect someone named "Jonesy" or "Baaaazzz" to be hot boxing the bathroom. It's diving me nuts!
WHAT HAPPENED TO MY HOUSE?!?!? Why is packing so difficult? If everything we owned, barring of course the laptop, disappeared tomorrow I would be perfectly fine with it. I am at the point where the most helpful items I can think of for getting the job done are a packet of matches and a can of gasoline.
Then of course there is the list of things that needs to be done before we move. Doctors to see, Addresses to change, broadband to transfer, letters of recommendation from employers and the like...... AGH!!!! It's doing my head in!!! All I want to do is drop everything, grab the baby and run very far, far away....
To a little house on the other side of town, one filled with mums about to sit down to coffee and biscuits and loads of chitter chatter.
Of course, first I need to shower, dress and clean the baby, maybe scrape the toast and honey off the floor.
I don't know if I have the energy...
