So today I have to book the town hall for a meeting, find a cheque long since filed (somewhere) and reply to emails and phonecalls that I've been ignoring all week.
Trouble is I'm shattered after another broken night thanks to my breastfeeding, co-sleeping toddler who refuses to sleep for longer than 2 hours at a time.
I also have to go to the dentist- an appointment made when the school holidays were far from my mind (and not written in my diary).
Fortunatley the non-political parent is back on form after an off day and has already walked the dog before work, so thats one less thing to worry about and indeed I will be spared the added irritation of the un-exercised dog vying for my attention, alongside everyone else.
I'm still waiting for the newspaper to be delivered, the paper girl is clearly in holiday mode, best hope nothing exciting has happened.
