Due to another Nepali Admin saga that is just too long and dull to type out, I am in Sauraha with the 3 rug-rats while Fergus has had to go on a 3 day mission to Kathmandu to get a parcel of goodies that we’ve had sent to us.
Now, I know that in the not too distant past I used to be able to look after all my children on my own with no issues, so I’m not sure why I feel so nervous about it!
Maybe it’s having Scarlett on crutches; maybe it’s being in a foreign land; maybe it’s that we have 3 Daddy’s girls who hang on his every word; maybe it’s that I’ve just not had to do it for so long; but it feels like a big challenge.
Anyway, I sat them down and explained how we’d have to work as a team to make it fun while Daddy’s away, and how we have to do extra good behavior. I was asked in turn to also do extra good behavior and not be strict or shout. So we have a deal.
And the Dairy Milk and hour in an internet cafe with a computer each won’t hurt either.
So far, so good…!
