Over the last few weeks, meals at our place have been a bit different to usual. Cooking from scratch is not something that we seem to be able to manage for now as we gradually get used to an evening ‘routine’ (ha ha) that involves all of the normal things as well as throwing a newborn into the mix! We figure we’re doing fairly well if the oldest gets a bath, the chooks are put to bed for the night and we sit down to eat sometime near dinnertime.
As such, meal planning has involved saying thank you at the door, or making a decision about which meal we eat and which one goes into the freezer! I expect this week to be slightly more complicated as the dinner roster prepared by friends is unlikely to cover every single night, so we might need to make decisions about which meal from the (rather large) freezer stash we will eat!
We are very blessed by the people who are taking care of us, and are extremely grateful for their generosity. Thank you.

After a few gorgeous spring days, the rain has started tonight. It's good, steady rain, so our young plants will enjoy it immensely.
I love having a vege patch!
Sleep update: 5.5 hrs last night, plus a 30 minute nap yesterday afternoon (no opportunity for napping today). For some unknown reason, I've felt more functional today than yesterday even though I had less sleep. Hmmm. Trying for an earlier night tonight...?

Which is a good thing. Last night, my smallest projectile vomited all over my MacBook, rendering it kaput, according to my Mac-guru-friend. (Though the hard drive should be salvageable. I hope.) Bugger. Times about 7000.
This afternoon has involved some exploring of replacement options, including the possibility of an iPad. Any thoughts?
Lucky there's a thing called the Baby Bonus.
We're hoping to set up my email to go to my phone, but I may be more non-responsive than usual for a little while...
Sleep update: Two lots of 3 hours each (yay!!), but none before midnight. This parenting of more than one child business has it's challenges!!
