Couldn’t pick tickets up last night so had to go in the morning with Grumpy to get them.
Fortunately, it didn’t clash with school and kinder drop off times (which do clash with each other) so all was well there. Dropped kids off seperately, and met at home to drive in and get the tickets (like I have nothing better to do with my time).
Took a business call on the drive into the City, and during signing over of tickets.
A bit early for meeting his brother and friend, so Grumpy shouted me a cup of coffee. Which was nice of him.
Under the circumstances.
Brother and friend turned up. Joined us for coffee.
Mid-coffee, they checked the time and realised they had to go.
Drank their coffees up and left.
They left me. Sitting alone!
With a HOT coffee.
And the paper. That day’s paper!
I didn’t know what to do with myself.
Picked Godzilla up from kinder, and, feeling inspired, though that we’d go to the video shop after school pickup.
So we did.
I was very happy. And no-one to check with on what to get.
“What are we getting, Mummy?” they ask.
So I reply, full of confidence “The Devil Wears Prada”
“But I don really like that” says Godzilla. (Monkey Boy had wandered off to find his own DVD)
Rushed dinner, bathed kids, let them watch their video then put them to bed.
Just hope Grumpy doesn’t come home early. Nah, not likely.
Set myself up .. kids in bed and some time for me ….
