Rebe and Benny love fruit leather and it's their favourite treat from the health food shop so I was delighted to find a recipe...which required lots of apples. Perfect! We made three batches, but only one came out perfect. You have to leave it in the oven over night and I suppose it was just too long/ too hot for 2 of them and they went brittle. Benny is still enjoying them though.
We're finding adjusting to life with a school girl a little less than easy. Rebe is very tired when she is coming home and is very prone to tantrums and tears and fights with Benny. However, it is Benny who is finding it most difficult. He is missing his playmate and doesn't quite know what to do with himself (apart from being naughty). Poor old Joshua can't get a good sleep in the morning as every time he falls asleep he has to get hauled out to drop off/ pick up. We'll get there though...
...and I've been taking this...(it was either that or gin ;-))
My book says it's for women who 'may also be worn out from too much to do and not enough resources to see them through it...thinking is difficult and brains seem to have ground to a halt'.
We'll be fine though, just waiting this crazy time out...inhale...pause...exhale.
