Idyllic morning scenery, isn’t it? But before you get the wrong idea – I have been up every 90 minutes, trying to calm a crying baby with reflux and, as it seems, who is intolerant to milk protein. So apart from not sleeping, I am now also on an incredibly boring diet. And since my […]
This is how sleep deprived I really am: The other night around 4am chez Met Mum. Sudden noises. Commotion. Someone switches on the bedside lamp. I blink. The husband passes me something heavy.

Blooming? Ha. If only. I am counting down the days till c-date. I have to mainly stay away from my computer, as my lower back pulls mercilessly on the muscles in my neck and sends shooting pains into my head… Boring stuff, I know.
