Sitting on the tube en route to the office for the first time since April 2012. I am not as heavy as i was back then nor am i wearing a 'baby on board ' badge but i am possibly more tired and have aged 5 years.
I have been up for almost 3 hours and achieved very little, tho i am dressed and made up and Boychild is tucked away nicely at nursery. He will have a great time I'm sure. I, however , will be on edge all day.
Head is thumping....prob from dehydration. Cried for about 3 hours yesterday and did 'guilt' playing with him for most of the afternoon. This, of course, resulted in me not eating til almost 9 after having to do all my chores after he went to bed rather than me doing them 'with him helping' throughout the day. (Husb was away on business unfortunately but it gave us some quality mummy and sprog time) .
Husb returned not long after 9 last night and insisted on me telling him everything he had missed....poor love is a softer sap than I when it comes to Boychild.
Anyway, so far i have needed assistance in buying my travelcard and a nice man on the South Ken platform asked me if i needed any help and called me 'lovely lady'. I guess my squinty tired eyes and shellshocked face must have made me seem like an out-of-towner rather than than a professional yummy mummy - the look i hoped to achieve when choosing my first day back outfit!
Oh well, there is always tomorrow to try again.
