Today is our last day at Pat and Richard’s house: tomorrow, Pat, Hattie, Joe and I start driving north to cross the Channel by way of the Chunnel – we’ll stay en-route tomorrow night, and arrive in England on Sunday. And then Tristan is back with is on Monday! Yay! My plan of sleeping in… Continue reading Les jumeaux en France: 30e journee
We’ve had a couple of quiet days at home, which have done me the world of good – particularly as I’ve been given some respite on the child care front and have even managed to take a couple of naps.

Well, I’m sure you have grasped that the lack of blog updates and photos can be attributed directly to the fact that I had eight consecutive nights of feral twin tag teaming, with all of the attendant screaming, crying, demand feeding and bed sharing. I was getting no more than 30 minutes of sleep at… Continue reading Les jumeaux en France: 20e journee
