i thought it would be a "breeze" being on my own for a month with baby and business, but it wasnt! the washing and dog poo removal was too much. Waiting for baby to sleep so I could work meant I was up till 3am most nights. I am soooo tired. i am looking forward to some help when mr messyfish returns on Wednsday(my birthday too)....hee hee hee, i know i am going to get some good presents this year!
