Lucie came home to join the family yesterday. It was wonderful.
The boys loved watching her play, but the real test was how things would go when all the excitement had died down. I made the rather odd decision to take the family for a quick walk, just like a regular dog walk, not in jacket, as Alex is getting his training next week. It was tough, handling dogs, balls, kids and husband. Note to self - take it easy! And last night we got Lucie settled into Alex's room. It was a little like a scene from Supernanny as I was up regularly putting Lucie back in her bed as she wandered into our room or lay in the hall. But my theory is start how you mean to continue, so I persisted, which i hope will get easier as routine establishes.
It is too hot to sit indoors at a laptop, and family demanding my attentions, so enough for now.
