The other thing that can happen when you load your plate up high is that you wear yourself out and get sick.
Which is of course what happened to us.
Az and I have had a bad gastro bug for the last six days. I'll spare you the details. Thankfully, Maya and Lara have been fine though I certainly do not recommend convalescing whilst trying to breastfeed and care for a newborn baby, and keep a very exuberant toddler fed, dressed, bathed and occupied throughout some very long days.
I've written this post many times in my head but I haven't been able to face looking at a computer screen for any period of time, except to stare slack-jawed at the odd episode of Big Bang Theory and give the occasional silent chuckle because it hurt too much to laugh out loud.
Poor me. Let's forget all about that sorry chapter.
Meanwhile, we push on with home renovations and settling in. It's fun. The only part that isn't fun is watching our rapidly depleting bank balance.
And my first review in my review writing career has come out. I think it's quite good, if I say so myself.
