Night and Day

I don't know how we keep going.

It's 1:30 and I'm still up. After a day that started early with taking the car to the garage for a patch up in case we decide to drive from Rome to the Netherlands when we leave (Yes, we are still going to Jamaica, but a short spell is planned in NL for Mr B. to finish the Phucking Doctorate).

Then neighbourhood shopping at the greengrocer's, two different delis (one has good prosciutto, the other good pizza), the pharmacy, the optician's and the café for ice cream and coffee. Then a painful visit to the doctor and a long limp home, followed by full-on Barbie vs Batman playtime to keep both kids happy. Once they were in bed, I spent four hours getting our admin sorted.

I'm not recounting this for sympathy, mind. That's just the way it is right now.

Plus the fact that the night air at 1:30 a.m. is the best you can get.

Here are two photos taken from our rooftop last night and this afternoon.
