Chapter 9.2- Love can be hard work

I keep my social up by chatting online, pregnancy is exhausting and I am too tired to go out and meet people.

I was painting when I went into labour and had twins, I named them Emiliano and Valeria.

They were a lot of work though, they loved to wake each other up and eat at different times so I hardly got any sleep in the first few months as I worked on getting them into a routine.

I finally got the twins on the same nap schedule and I could finally work on my paintings.

Before I knew it they were toddlers and both unique in their own ways, Emil had brown hair, purple eyes and pale skin whereas Val had brown skin, brown eyes and black hair.

I started toilet training them and I was finally able to afford some toys for them to play with.

I finally had saved enough money to have a room for the twins, I ran out of money before I could afford the final wall and door but at least I can see them easier and they are finally sleeping through the night. Good thing too as I am going back to work soon.

Valeria was the first one to take some steps and now she mayhem always getting into everything.

Valeria loves to play here, it’s her favourite place and she loves this sheep

The twins love the babysitter, I hired to care for them whilst I work.

I love to dance

The twins are able to entertain themselves

Chapter 9.1- Starting Out

The old house was feeling a bit cramped with mum, Uncle Fernado, Grandmother Analia and all my siblings so I decided to move out. This is my new home.

I got a job spying on my neighbours for now

I love to paint so spend quite a lot of time at the easel and use my painting to brighten up the drab walls

I also started teaching myself to cook, I can’t live in takeaways and ready meals for ever after all

I have started dating too, Meet Devon. it’s not serious though as he will finish his residency soon and has a fellowship lined up abroad

The shower is our favourite place to have fun.

I had to clean the toilet, I had a cold recently that I recovered from but I seem to be throwing up a lot, I may have food poisoning or a stomach bug, I have booked a doctors appointment to find out.

I did some laundry

I enjoy learning new recipes and love watching cookery shows

My doctor finally got my test results, I was pregnant and like my mum and grandmother would be doing it alone. Me and Devon had agreed on no strings and he had left a while ago for his fellowship and I couldn’t remember where it was.

I used my maternity leave to work on my paintings

I also tested out the new recipes, I had learnt
