hmmpff

sorry for my absence last week, I had every intention of blogging regularly when we came back from holidays, but as usual, that only lasted momentarily. It seems that my pre-pregnancy hormones have returned now that the little man is four months old, if you catch my drift, and I've been feeling pretty low the last few days. Nothing major, just a bit flat. Little things are niggling at me, things that really shouldn't, like gyroscope suddenly appearing on my husband's random playlist at 9.30 pm, when all I really would like is a little bit of nick drake. Gyroscope for christ's sake, what is he, 15 years old? I'm all for staying young at heart, but not when it involves screaming young-boy bands. Oh, I'm so gonna be in trouble for this one.
the thing about my hormones is that they usually cause me to become totally dissatisfied with my surroundings, and I generally can't rest until I've changed something. Over the past three days, I have completely rearranged our lounge room, I've moved the boys' beds back into the same room, at their request, and created a "play room" for them in what was fin's room. The whole place looked like a bomb had hit it (actually, parts of it still do). But, I feel much better, the house feels much better (and cleaner, I vacuumed as I went), and everyone's happy. Well, almost, I still have our bedroom to go...
p.s.the funny photo of jasper was taken the other day, he's wearing a very cute jacket made for him by a dear friend. As you can see, I'm having trouble finding things that will actually fit his well-rounded head!

we have a small lounge room which needs to be re-arranged so that we can either use the heater or airconditioner. on friday i re-arranged the lounge for winter. i love it - you get to vacuum all the spots that have been long neglected and everything looks fresh. it makes me feel good.
i agree about the music - there is a time and a place.....

ps take care - i remember those days and even though you know there is a reason for your feelings, it's still not easy to live through (much like pmt - just because you get it every month doesn't make it easier to live with!!)
pps lovely boy!
