Sadly I was unable to visit Annabel having been struck down with a nasty bout of tonsilitis. Probably caused by 6 weeks of horrendous nights' sleep courtesy of our youngest....Still, for once I was able to get some proper rest, leaving childcare duties to Brad, and catering duties to mum. Thank goodness for both of them as I felt properly rough.
I spent most of the week taking it very slow, and trying to get Benjamin to sleep better at night. Gina Ford claims that babies need calm time after bath time in order to wind down ready for nightime, so we have started a new regime. No longer will Benji go from chasing his brothers around the house squealing in delight to being chucked in his cot screaming. From now on we will attempt to take him away and read books to him like we did to the other 2, and perhaps we will restore harmony to bedtime.....
Earlier in the week Brad and I had a day out in London, shopping and catching up with friends. I had a lovely lunch with Wendy, a great opportunity to have a good gossip without any children in tow. Next time we see Wendy will be at the christening of her twins - Louisa and Cecily - our two goddaughters, so no doubt it will be difficult to chat in between chasing one of the girls or Benjamin.
