Chocolate biscuits and a cup of tea... yes please!
Today was that sort of Monday. I was woke up at 5.30am with Lacey needing the toilet and then refusing to go back to sleep.
She always has boundless energy in the mornings and it is shrinking my already small amount of sleeping hours having to get up and entertain her whilst everyone else is still in the land of nod.
I was joined by Mikey at 6am which is much earlier than his normal getting up time, and he was grumpy and tired, which set the scene for the rest of the morning.
I found Chloes shoes which look worse for wear with holes in the heel, and Jakes coat under the dirty towels in the bathroom filthy!
Somehow we managed to get out the door looking almost normal.
Mikey then decided we HAD to get the budgie some food from the shop, and decided he was going to stage a sit down protest until we had got the food, ok I admit I have been asking him for about a week to remind me to pick some up from the shop on his way to school (its the only local shop which sells bird food) but today was not the ideal time.
It's about a 15 minute walk to Mikeys school on a good day, we were already running behind and with a shop visit thrown in too it was not a great start!
There were tears and angry words muttered as I hurried Mikey along through the school gate. I hate mornings like this.
Roll on the Easter Holidays.
