Yesterday was an unmitigated disaster. We had to get up early as rebel daughter was in some maths/science project in a secondary school. I felt sick and had to go to the GP. Work rained in from all sides and few people turned up to the event I organised. I'm just not sure I want to do it all any more. I think my work/life has basically got out of balance and I just would like some time off. However, I can't foresee it happening for months. In the meantime I am organising tomorrow's pick up from school and worrying about being 60 miles away when big girl daughter comes out and has to find her friend's mum, who isn't a close friend but was nice enough to offer to have her until my partner finishes work. Unfortunately, she has a son and big girl daughter is big into gender divides. She doesn't quite see how she can play with a boy.
