Things I have done today…


Flea

Things I have done today:

  • Got up
  • Helped Flea put on her shin pads with her football kit
  • Helped Flea take off her shin pads
  • Repeated previous two actions approximately 5,000 times
  • Read stories. Realised Topsy and Tim lead seriously empty lives
  • Made burritos
  • Made boiled eggs when Flea decided she no longer likes burritos
  • Made a second set of boiled eggs when I remembered I never remember how to soft-boil eggs 
  • Tried to explain to Flea that I didn't have more toast than her, it's just that hers was sliced into soldiers
  • Gave up, and swapped my toast for Flea's toast
  • Played policemen and burglars
  • Played medieval policemen and burglars (as above, but with swords)
  • Went to the cinema to see Nanny McPhee 2
  • Played doctors and patients
  • Had a falling over competition on the king-sized bed. Lost.
  • Played 105 rounds of Pop-Up Pirate
  • Read two bedtime stories
  • Gave three bedtime hugs 
  • Gave one final, last hug
  • Then one more, but that was the last one, definitely
  • Apart from the last one, obviously


Things I have not done today:

  • Laundry
  • Changed the bed linen
  • Cleaned the kitchen floor
  • Taken a shower
  • Any work

I love the summer holidays!

    We’ve been in the garden, painting with our hands and feet. We’re not on summer holiday yet but so good to spend the day just playing.

    Yup, sounds pretty much how it’s supposed to go. I was wondering today when oh WHEN I might get to eat the food I put on my own plate. It’s midly depressing how predictable it is that they snaffle it…harumph.
    Today I had to plan a rocket build. I really, really think my 4 year old assumes I can actually make a REAL rocket tomorrow. His confidence in me appalls and delights me in equal measures.
    I hate pop up pirate. Smack him on the head with a sword next time you see him. Feisty little bugger.

    My Mother-in-law is fond of reminding me that the housework will be there long after I’ve gone. I guess that’s her way of saying enjoy your kids while they’re young enough to actually want to be in your company 😉

    You should see my kitchen floor. And I just slept today. Ouch. Yours was better.

    Flea has some weird sixth sense about food. One chew and it’s “what have you got in your mouth, Mummy?”

    Oh dear. My kitchen floor is now relatively clean. For, ooh, about three hours.
