Saturday night pizzas.

I haven’t used the pork chops visual when the boys are arguing for a long time. I think I will add that to my arsenal from now on. Just much bigger pork chops.

The last few days have been very emotional and I am working my way back up from the melting point I found myself at yesterday. I’m emotionally sapped, achingly tired and my eyes just want to shut, but there is a smile lurking close to the surface, which means I am going to be just fine. For now, I’m just going to take a break and have a glass of wine with Blue Eyes, maybe eat some pizza (we’re really giving the pizza oven a workout ahead of my birthday), turn on the fairy lights and enjoy the cool breeze.
