Uh oh

That’s not a good start to a day that could get ugly.

Today we do the annual School Shoe Shop. I hate this day. The children hate me hating this day. It will be tense and it will be ugly.

This morning I woke up around 5.30 am and couldn’t get back to sleep. Until, inevitably, I nodded off just as I decided it was time to give up. And then woke up late. Not good.

I made my customary cup of tea which I left to stew whilst firing up the PC before embarking on the day properly awake.

I returned to the kitchen to put milk in my tea. The milk curdled.

This is really not a good start to the day.


And then! It’s a good job I was cleaning the bath before I had my shower. If' I’d been in the shower when I found the tarantula hiding behind the shampoo I would have been in a really tricky situation, with only my teenage son to rescue me!

In my haste to leave the bathroom I locked myself in…

Think of it as buying shiny new gear...

And drink tea without milk.
Problems sorted!

It's nothing like shiny new gear (I got some of that this week, my new map case is soft, soft, soft!)

Tea without milk is a desperate measure only occasionally stooped to.

Ok, and the tarantula?!
