Times that…

  • I went to the toilet alone: 2 (woohoo!)
  • Daisy had an accident: 3
  • Daisy escaped the garden: 0 (hence the 3 accidents!)
  • Samuel escaped the garden: 1
  • I burst into tears: 2
  • I wanted to run away: 1 (miracle)

So today wasn’t too bad in normal terms.  OH left early for an overnight trip to Head Office, so the morning should have been chilled…  Bar the recycling team coming at about 8 am and therefore Samuel arrived in outfit one, ready to ‘help’, it was a pretty chilled day.

A flurry of work emails contributed to Daisy’s ‘accident’ record, as well as the sad affair of dead pigeon chicks that we had ‘rescued’ from the ground the night before.  This also contributed to Samuel’s outfit no. 2 (builders outfit), not sure of the relevance but anyway.

To resume happy holiday affairs Henry (yes he emerged from his room, yes he was still in his pants, yes he did wash his hands!) suggested the baking of cheese straws, who doesn’t love cheese straws.  Outfit no. 3 for Samuel (full Chef’s whites)  and shall I just suggest following the recipe precisely…. extra cheese is not always such a good idea!

my depressing life

A visit to Grandma Bling (best name ever!) with Samuel prompted outfit no. 4 (no idea or care by this point, bar the amount of bloody washing this becomes), #suchfun.  After several hours and much fun, a temper tantrum took the better of a small person and after strong resistance (we are literally like the KGB) he cried himself out and fell asleep where he lay.

Sleepover at Grandma’s!!!!!!!!!!!!

This shit ain’t easy folks and don’t let anyone make you feel like it is (she says skipping home and pouring a large gin!)

How are you all coping?
