Another day of solo parenting

We knew that when Tet took the job in Singapore that it would involve a certain amount of travel. They swore up and down that Tet would be away no more than one week a month. As they say on the Tui billboards-yeah right!

Some months he is away for a couple of trips but increasingly he is away three or more times a month. It makes for some pretty tough times for Scarlett and me. There are heaps of pluses to us living up here but the total lack of family support can be really trying.

We had a pretty cruisy day today though. Helped in no small part by the fact that monkey slept through the night in her own bed for the second night in a row. I woke really early though as I am totally not used to sleeping through the night! It was useful though as the itti bitti limited edition nappies went on sale at 530 our time. If I had waited till a decent hour I would have missedout on the nappies I liked. I will have to post some pictures of them on Scarlett when they arrive.

We pottered around home this morning and monkey had a good. Nap till lunch. After lunch we hit the supermarket and stocked up on Scarlett's favourite snack edamame. The rest of the day was spent at home with lots of stories and playing games.

Grandad arrives from NZ tomorrow so that will be fun. Scarlett is quite excited.
