It's Saturday, a.k.a. shopping day, library day, school uniform laundry day, gardening day and two kids killing each other and moaning 'I'm bored' and 'It's not fair' day; all the way to 7pm and Doctor Who. It's the last episode of the series today, so I'm told, and I am already dreading next weekend if theres nothing to replace it and hypnotise the kids into silence.
To cap it all off, its sunny, and my darling husband has visions (hot from his own little cloud in la-la land) of us all going out together and 'doing' something.
So, I guess I am off to be mother, nurse, mediator, judge, jury, peacekeeper (yes probably US style, with a gun), pack horse and general tent-post.
One of my favourite sayings - If your tent only has one pole, look after the pole.
This pole would really like to collapse sometimes, just to teach them a lesson, but the little angels would crawl out from under the canvas and go do something else, whereas I would still be snapped.
Another saying - chin up, smile and drown with dignity.
Good 'ere, innit.
So, whats the weather like where you are?
