Let’s see, Kris‘s house on Friday, Kris’s house on Saturday Have been home all day today, apart from a shopping trip to Morrison’s (boy I hate that shop) and have been repaid for my presence by foul behaviour from both children.
Not quite sure what that is in aid of, think part of it is them picking up on my stress level atm, but still unrelenting rudeness and temper from Big, beginning to be echoed by Small (what joy), is rather wearing.
Note of amusement at tea time, when we sat down together for a family meal, first in a while, and Small demanded salt just like Daddy. Carefully placed thumb, and Tim obliged. And again. And again. Then was told that Small *didn’t* want it on his bread sauce, so blew it off. After all that, we asked if he was going to eat his tea now.
Maybe you had to be there, but it cracked both of us up. Small did indeed refuse to eat anything I’d put in front of him, which was more than a little annoying, but he didn’t seem to want anything else either. He does this every now and then, and I think it’s best to go with the flow.
In other news, I got to perform guilt free shopping on amazon, by spending vouchers build up by doing surveys. Have ordered British Isles: A Natural History which Tim and I enjoyed, or at least the parts we saw we enjoyed, and thought Big might too. And made my order up to the £21 I had to spend with one of those books of that women writers list, althought it took me a while to find one that was priced OK – was determined not to spend any real money So The Talented Mr Ripley is on his way over. Or will be in a couple of days, when the time lag that has to happen before free delivery takes place. And I’ve located a copy of our first suggested bookclub read on mybookyourbook so I’ll be posting off an envelope for that tomorrow.
And that’s been my day. Don’t seem to have achieved very much, have a peculiar stuck-in-limbo sensation atm. Hoping that tomorrow I have a bit more energy.
