The small child went to bed really nicely! I pootled downstairs happily looking forward to a bit of husband time.
Husband is having buddy time on the xbox.
I fully approve of buddy time – someting has to happen to compensate for having no local friends – but am just feeling a bit sad.
And wishing, again, how to solve the dilemma of ‘we have no friends, child needs sibling’ vs ‘I fear the impact on sleep, finances and mental health might break stuff’.
