Six sleeps until the OH relocates to Germany for 4 months. The girls and I have booked our tickets to visit in the September school holidays. Between him leaving and us arriving there are approximately 77 single-parenthood sleeps. Not that I’m counting.
It’s been a stressful and tiring couple of weeks. Sleep decided to play a game of hide and seek. Sadly every time I found ‘it’, ‘it’ went and hid elsewhere. For almost two weeks I didn’t sleep more than 2 hours at a stretch. Thoughts were rushing around my head, colliding and splintering into more thoughts.
Strangely as his departure gets closer my brain is getting quieter. It has perhaps been soothed by actually being proactive – organising the OH’s gear to take and booking our plane tickets.
I’m trying to put into place some single-mum strategies to help the three of us get into a new routine. Time will tell if they help…..
