  1. OMG, you have given me a craving for Blueberry jam like you wouldn't believe!!!
    Brilliantly written as ever – LOVE the part about banging on the window to builders then ducking on to floor on all fours!!! Lol I have done that sort of thing myself!! Real life is truly so much stranger (and funnier, though I'm sure you didn't find much funny at the time….) than fiction isn't it??!! And Yah boo sucks to starchy headmistress………did you stick a mental two fingers up to her on the way home????!!! I would have……!!

  2. Oh I am so glad it's not just me that has those mornings. Thanks for sharing, you really brought a smile to my face. Hope you put your feet up and had a nice cuppa after all that 🙂

  4. Oh dear, I'm sorry. I had a morning like that a week or two ago and I swear I was ready to move to Australia or something by the end of that day… on the bright side, eventually it just gets so bad that you kind of have to laugh. Maybe a little hysterically, but laughter nonetheless…

  5. Oh heavens – just another day of motherhood, in other words? j/k! It's amazing what we as women, can endure in less than one full morning, let alone a 24 hour period! Let men have the offices. I would much rather have been able to be at home with my boys instead of working. Well….maybe! Leslie Anne

  6. So beautifully written! Yes, I remember those days, and gosh how did I cope?? Much as I miss the days when she could still fit on my lap, I am really glad for many other reasons that my daughter is all growed up now…. Hope the rest of the day went rather more smoothly.
    My recent post Ooh more photos!

  8. You're on a PAYG meter? My goodness, when I first moved here ten years ago, I thought those things went out in the 60s. How appalled was I to find out they still existed. Their the most expensive way to get your hydro (as we call it where I'm from). Can you not get a proper meter? Would take one blip off the daily radar.
    Spoodles!

  9. Lol oh dear, one of those days… it is very kind of you to cheer the rest of us up though with a hilarious retelling of your frantic morning. By the way, can you get pre-paid electricity in the UK? Interesting…at least it would save getting unpleasantly large quarterly electricity bills.

  10. I've had worse days like these. I couldnt get it out of my mind for some reason not to let it happen again, I couldnt even talk about it anymore. Kids are really scary when unsupervised.
