School’s out for Easter…

We’re staring down the barrel of NINETEEN days of school holidays this Easter break. An outrage I tell you. Oh sure, normally it’s seventeen days but those extra two are the difference between a habit and an addiction.

School finished at 3.10 Friday afternoon.

By 10am Saturday morning I was tearing shreds off the offspring.

It culminated with me screaming calling all the children who were by now hiding in various places around the house to the kitchen where I had hastily put up some new house rules. Such was my PMT anger I almost misspelled vacuum. Now that’s saying something.

Today the Playstation controls got thrown to the back of the top of our wardrobe and was banned for the rest of the holidays.

A slippery slope people, a very slippery slope.

    • I adore the word vacuum simply for the fact it thumbs its nose at the world with two u’s

    I like your three rules. Cuts through the minutae of whatever the current argument/issue is and brings it down to basics. Good luck with it all….

    • Exactly. I think I need to add – NO HITTING – to the list though. And NO BITING on a special list for Grover. The delinquent.

  • Finally delurking to say that I love you. Very much.

    • Well you know, being one constantly seeking love and adoration, I’m ever so glad you did. Unless this is actually a spam message, which then makes me look like a complete git. But I don’t think it is…
