The day after

I wish I had something more insightful or inspirational to share but alas, today was the day after we returned from our long weekend.  You know what that means right? Unpacking and sorting and laundry and cleaning and… well, you get the idea.  There is no question that one of the downsides of going away for a weekend of camping is the tidying up and sorting out that has to occur afterwards.  If the way you pack to go away somewhere is anything like me, the house would have resembled the aftermath of a cyclone once you had departed.

So today was spent at home, sorting out all the stuff.  Yeah, that’s pretty much it!

Although, in other news, I did try out a new technique on Miss B to get her to go to sleep with less drama – I think we set a record! 20mins tonight… not sure if it was because she was already tired from a big weekend and a day at Childcare today or whether the technique actually worked, but either way, it was a relief not to have to spend hours trying to get her to go to sleep, which is both frustrating and sad for both of us. Fingers crossed we get the same result tomorrow night.

In the meantime, I’m going to finish off one of Mrs P’s choc caramel brownies and ice cream and congratulate myself on my domestic efforts today!


Have you spent today recovering from the long weekend? Any tips to share on getting toddlers to stay in their beds and go to sleep?
