Disruption of Normal Service

Please excuse the sporadic schedule of blogging, having a 14 week old baby and 3 older children and a husband to take care of is proving to be more challenging and more tiring than I expected. It's been 8 years since we had a newborn and I'd forgotten all about how tough it can be.  Bubs is a lovely healthy boy, breast feeding is going well, and his older sisters absolutely adore him.  

Some days being a wife and Mum and keeping the housework ticking over is all I can get done.  Some days not even that happens very well.  I'm a wife and Mum first and everything else comes after that.  Please bear with me as I figure out how to work around our new schedules, sleep deprivation, my family's needs, and find a new normal.

Over the festive season we have all been poorly at one time or another and our boiler has been working intermittently and sounds like it is being disemboweled when it does. This means sporadic hot water and heating, accompanied by the boiler making a racket loud enough for the neighbours to hear.  We live in hope it will be fixed in early January.

I will try and blog our Meal Plans when time allows as well as my usual recipe posts.  Thanks so much for your understanding and patience.
