And we turned another page of the calendar! We are still in Italy at my parents, not too easy at times but not bad either. We will be back in Dublin on the 3rd. Mike and I sleep at my sisters most nights but all is calm. I try to be affectionate but that's all I manage and we had not further talk.

Oliver turned 5 today, can you believe this? He is a very good child most of the time but can still be impossible. I hope next year I will be able to say we have finally gotten over the tantrums (much much rarer thankfully). He seems to need very little sleep, and that worries my a bit, mostly because I am certain when he sleeps less he also much more prone to silly behaviour. He is highly articulated and has a great memory so we have to be quite careful as silly distractions doesn't work at all anymore.

Martina is the sweetest girl, so so affectionate and just a very content child. Long may this last!

And I'm looking forward to the new year, I hope it will bring some clarity and calm in my mind, I am sure that moving will be great too and will give me so much to look forward to.

I wish you all much love and I feel blessed to have you to share my journey.


  1. Congratulations on Oliver! FIVE, so hard to believe.
    Aren't children that much nicer when they eat and sleep well? and are healthy?
    Also for Suzy being outdoors is important, to let of steam and run around and grow and play.
    For indoor activity we have to make sure we stimulate her to learn and discover.
    She easily transitions from nice to aggressive, and back again. O my.
    O well, I hope your calm will affect your family in a good way too (because smart little kids pick up so much more than you want them to sometimes!)
    Happy New year, best wishes for you and your family!

  2. Where has the time gone? How can our children be five already?!

    Thinking if you!
