06.30 – Younger child vomiting so my day has gone to hell in a handcart before it’s even started!
07.00 – Hubby is on an admin day so offers to stay home to work, then I can run my errands.
07.45 – Mad panic because I think he’s taking elder child to school. I was stuck with ‘vomiting Veronica’ & didn’t realize elder child had not had breakfast already – we normally leave at 07.50!
08.00 – After heated words about crossed wires I’m off to school & hubby is left with ‘VV’.
09.00 – Laundry than walk the dog.
09.45 – Off to Costco to buy a Dyson fan so my in-laws don’t melt in our spare room.
10.45 – Exit Costco minus the fan, but replaced it with a Vitamix instead!! (In my defense it was an offer too good to miss before they crank the prices up because of the US dollar)
12.00 – Made an awesome smoothie- nuts & everything.
13.00 – ‘VV’ is returning to his former self & declaring imminent starvation if I don’t feed him.
13.30 – Make school uniform list for grandma to bring with her.
14.30 – Order Dyson fan online, 100 bucks cheaper than Costco – 2 bargains in one day!!
15.15 – Hubby picks up elder child & the teacher in the other grade 4 class asks him if he thought I would like to help her with a face painting station at Sports Day next week. Haven’t done it in years but hey why not!
15.30 – Dug out the face paints…
15.45 – Hubby & elder child return home to younger child sporting an angry bird on his forehead, Captain America shield on one cheek & a snake down the side of the other!
16.00 – I persuade elder child to allow me to practice a butterfly…
16.15 – Not bad, I think I might just manage to pull this off.
16.30 – After arranging to off-load my needy dog to Java’s residence for the day, I confirm with the teacher that it’s game on! My boys suggest I paint my face like Wonder Woman & go in fancy dress – I’m SO EXCITED!!!
19.30 – It’s now day 8… I could murder a glass of wine!
