3 years old and 3 feet high

Still no jobs. I'm applying for about 2 a week. Milord has given up on his course and has applied for a job or two too. We are being kind to each other.

For Princess' 3rd birthday I gave her an actual real digital camera. A kid's version, but still a real camera. This is what life looks like at 3.5 years old...

(In very good light the camera takes a decent shot. In low light it struggles with a child's motion.)

One Month Later...

Here we are, one month after Milord chucked in his job without consulting me.

I am no longer in denial, I am now quite cross most of the time.

I have not been able to find any part time work and am now looking for full time contracting work. Milord is apparently also applying for jobs, while struggling with the course he wants to complete before getting serious about jobhunting.

I am investigating local daycare options for the kids, because while Mom will help out all she can I don't expect her to be a stay-at-home-gran.

That's my dream job.

Hanging in there...

We are in a holding pattern here. I'm finding it hard to blog because everything comes out bitter!

Milord is having trouble finding time to study his course, and won't jobhunt until it is done.

One of the reasons he is busy is because he is doing some paid work.

Not enough paid work to cover the mortgage and bills though. We do have enough savings for about 2 months survival though...

Until Milord gets work I don't know if I need to look for full time or part time work myself.

I am still very annoyed but am doing my best to be nice and not nag.

Princess needs another eye operation because her eyes are now doing this:

King has discovered walking and is very chuffed with himself.
