Oh Lordie Me!!! I officially need help......cabin fever has set in. Now I don't know if it is an annual thing with me, maybe I suffer with S.A.D.- note to self- Must get one of those sunlamp thingies! But we are stranded in our house, food is running out, kids gone wild and hubby not in the best of form (actually like a angry bear) because he has to repair pipes all over the place. I lived in hope yesterday that schools would re-open and I could get to the shops, but no, another day of cabin fever.
So, since I am 5 months pregnant. So I decided to sort out the pink clothes from blue clothes and dump the yellows as it is our last and we have a girl and a boy already! What a disaster. I never found the courage to dump all the lovely baby clothes as they were done with, so I literally had 30 big bin liners full of bibs, bally jumpers and vomit stained dressses all thrown in one room. O.k. maybe I am a bit of a hoarder too, lesson learned!
Then I decided to go shopping online!! Ouch! I had a chat to myself beforehand and decided that I had enough clothes for the little one already so all I really needed was reusable nappies (am I mad!) and a nappy bag. 2 hours later and 1500 euro in debt I finished. All I ordered was clothes, no nappies, no bag and a battered credit card. It will be a quiet year for me ....again!
Now, as part of my New Year Resolutions for 2010 I decided to be alot more positive, so when I saw rain instead of snow this morning, dare I say it....it lifted my day! Snow is thawing and we might be able to eat more than frozen pizza tomorrow, we live in hope!
So, I think we are coming to the end to the Big Freeze, will it be missed, definately not. Skiing holidays don't seem as exciting anymore and we can once more look forward to the basic and simple things in life. Like food and sanity!
Having two children with another on the way my social skills consist of ten fingers and my laptop, which I might add is my third one this year due to little boys pee and a little girls tapdancing skills! In the real world my interests would include Chinese and Ayurvedic Medicine.
