'mad woman' or just a parent?
yesterday i realised something very scary... i have become a muttering, crazy person who people avoid making eye contact with. how come every week i vow never again to go shopping with my 2 year old and every week i find myself back in the shops, muttering obscenities under my breath, not only about the thousand other shoppers after the same item as me but also about how much i didnt want a third child and that it was more micks idea than mine. any bystander would think i was a NUTTER and shouldnt be in charge of two small children. my generous father then treats us to a coffee break, which although a welcomed gesture, ends very quickly in my blood pressure going through the roof while mia and claudia climb on chairs, spill drinks, drop food and basically ignore my every request to sit still and be NORMAL. so next time you come upon someone muttering under their breath, dont be quick to judge them, unless of course they are childless then run in the other direction. *^_^* am i allowed another whinge? (it is the weekend after all) i hate cleaning my house when the kids are around because they like to 'HELP'. now i can hear all the mums with teenagers saying i should consider myself lucky to have enthusiastic volunteers, but it is very hard to clean the ring around the bath tub with 'grubby bubby' following behind me making more mess on my clean spots. it just bothers me that i cant just get in and do it and be done with it. the whole process takes 3 hours instead of 1 and still isnt done right. aaaaaaaaaarrrrrggggggggg i dont think i am explaining myself properly so i wont bore you any longer. on a lighter note i have finished the christmas stitching! but have no idea what to do next... i will scour the magazines and come up with a plan. seems wrong not to post a picture so here is a photo of three little pups that aunty Anita bought ages ago . it is amazing how much each of the pups do look like their owner! from left to right claudias pup 'chilli' mias pup 'max' and lilis pup 'goldie' hang on, just found an old pic of the stitching (which is now finished) and what it looked like a few weeks ago... next time you see this it will be finished. ok now i am off to a party.... big noises kisses mmwwaah rosey
