With Popette now at Kindy I've found Cherub getting tired rather quickly in the morning. She is not enjoying the change to her morning routine, which now consists of eating breakfast and getting dressed before 9am!
Before we would take our time having breakfast (in front of the TV), eventually get dressed then do something. Nowadays we don't have much time for playing puzzles or watching TV before school, which Cherub isn't too pleased about. I think its a good thing, as it is limiting the amount of TV she is watching!
Last week we returned to her music appreciation class which she enjoys, as well as attended playgroup where she loved making Valentines day cards! I'm hoping she will meet some kids around her age there, poor Cherub doesn't have friends her own age, and misses her sister like crazy. It would be nice for her to have someone around her age to play with.
I've never been good with change (I'm sure it's a Capricorn thing), but have to say I am adjusting to the change in our morning routine rather well. I've been enjoying the morning and afternoon strolls to Popette's school. There are days when we have a quick drop-off or pick-up in the car, but most days I can put Cherub in the pram or on her bike.
Another change I've made is setting aside some time for myself each day to do my own thing.

I've also been getting into the baking, which is another creative outlet I enjoy. For Valentine's day I made a Chocolate Ganache tart with homemade shortcrust pastry. It wasn't too bad for my first attempt. The pastry was a little thick, but the filling was heavenly!!
