Although I was itching to get home when I finally did get back it felt a bit strange and  overwhelming. Almost like I had been on a long, surreal journey only to be plonked back into reality with a hearty thud. Which I guess is exactly what has happened. How can I go back when so much has changed? I think it will take a while for me to settle back into the comfort of routine. I will miss the conveniences of the hospital though, not having to clean and run after a toddler, being able to lie in bed all day and watch TV without feeling guilty, individual attention with a click of a button. I will not, however, miss the food.


  1. This is utter perfection. The reality of two is overwhelming, that's for sure. Just go gently, don't make any plans, drink tea x

    1. Not sure how I will cope but I will definitely be drinking tea, it's #1 on my to-do-list.

  2. I felt the same after having Jarvis. I had the bonus of my partner bringing up every meal to me at the hospital. So made it even harder to come home and face reality.


  3. I've thought about having a third just to be able to enjoy that time in the hospital again. Okay, I kid. But I may not kid if the food was any good...

    You'll get settled in soon enough. It took me a few months to adjust, which sounds like a long time when you're first getting home, but it flies by.

    Lots of love to you and yours.

  4. Such a delightful photo - love!

  5. Just realize I said nothing about how wonderful this photo is. I'm in love with the composition. Everything about this is superb.
