Today I skipped out of town for an appointment with 3 children and my mother in tow. Zafirah chucked a sickie from school, well she really does have a shocking cough, but as usual, as soon as I said she could stay home she seemed to recover… Typical!!!
One would assume that if her throat was as sore as she insists it is, she might have possibly talked a whole lot less but this was however NOT THE CASE….. In fact by 2pm I had developed such a headache from her constant chitter chattering I had to purchase some Nurofen to ease the pain.
I couldn’t help but wonder how the girl gets on at school. Have they kept her that quiet that she had to unleash a weeks worth of built up jibber jabber on my poor tired ears in one sitting??? I have to be perfectly honest and admit that I am glad it is bedtime for them right now. It’s so peaceful in here all I can here is the tweeting of my baby finches and the keys tapping as I type this. 🙂
I have big plans for tomorrow, all of which involve housework. The dreaded catch up after a slack weekend. I’m really not sure if the slack weekend was worth it since I will be spending an entire child free day cleaning. Hmmmmm, will have to make a note of that for next weekend!!
So for now I will love you and leave you.
I have been summoned to the couch by my hubby for a snuggle and a movie. Such a rare occurrence is this that I am taking him up on his offer.
