10 points to indicate the earth has tilted on its axis or perhaps the apocalypse is imminent

with 11 comments

1. I woke up in a good mood
2. Felix has started having a (decaffeinated) coffee in  the mornings and when I was showing him how to make it  I indicated there was one very important rule he had to adhere to: that when he made it he had to make his mum a cup of tea and bring it to her. Today I had my tea brought to me when I was in the shower.
3. All the children who had to be at school were at school. ON TIME.
4. I vacuumed the car.
5. I mopped the floor of the car. Yes, my car has plastic flooring. It was about the only stipulation I had on a new car. That and that there was enough space that all four children could be in said car and not able to physically touch each other. Priorities people.
6. I went out to lunch (Chef’s work: Danks St Depot) and someone else (mum) paid.
7. My two youngest children came out to lunch too and were perfectly behaved.
8. I was not late picking the boys up from school.
9. I read the boys the riot act about coming into the supermarket (the definition of a ‘treat’; the no running, no screaming, no fighting, no squealing, no anything except breathing and walking beside me; the threat of removing chosen treat for any breaking of rules) AND they adhered to it.
10. It’s 6pm and only one child is crying.
