I have a gorgeous friend I'm sharing this journey of parenting with. The other day I asked her for some Thyme, I could see her brain calculating the desire to help but the problem with time.  In no time we worked out the confusion and she quickly beamed with the knowledge her garden could provide thyme.

In my limited time I had failed to remembered I did plant some thyme a month ago in the neighbours yard we care for. So today I have thyme in my cooking and I've found time to cook bolognese, lamb biryani, preserve lemons and prepare for five days of glorious time with no little boys. Yes five whole days coming up to WRITE this never ending PhD. Pretty happy about that one. I'll miss my little men, but time without them is what I really need right now to keep this PhD journey ticking along. I found time to bake chocolate chip cookies at the request of Liam, however in my race against time I made the cookies too big and they grew together. Great thing about butter, brown sugar, eggs, coconut and chocolate is that it still taste great regardless of the appearance.

Hi Rowena,
It's all sounding pretty good for you! A gorgeous friend, herbs, time to bake the home goodies for the kiddies AND 5x24 hours to write it up!
Go you good thing!

Hi Vicki
I generally only blog on this site about the good things. I have another site where I have a real debrief on what drives me insane and the insecurities I have. This blog I keep confidential so as to not offend my kids, give away too much to future examiners or open myself too much to the "e-world". Its a site that will make great material for the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth about doing a PhD whilst raising children.
I really appreciate your support Vicki. I blog about 2 frustrated blogs to every one that appears on this site ; )
