I need another monitor. As you can see, I'm sharing mine with Lauren. Thank heavens it's wide! Some days, this is the only way I can get stuff done - she watches Wiggles clips on youtube, while I... do whatever I need to do/can do, with Wiggles tunes in my ears.

Ivy was in need of more activity/stimulation, Lauren … Continue reading I survived the school holidays
