Still, I'm not complaining as jobs go its not so bad. Yes, I am harassed continuously and if that's not happening I'm stepping in to mediate the "he said/she said" arguments. And, as my friend points out (and I quote) "our basic human right to go to the toilet without interruption" is regularly being abused. I'm not sure anyone currently residing in the Bangkok Hilton, reliving Midnight Express or a prisoner in Guantanamo Bay will agree with this sentiment but hey, who am I to argue?! She has a point!
Having said all this, the holidays are wonderful! The sun has been shining, the kids have enjoyed their excursions and activities and I think there has been a fair distribution for each one as to their particular likes etc. I find this is getting harder as when they're all younger they all like the park but now my son is 10 he likes specific activities. So whilst its been good fun its been fairly non-stop and I'm looking forward to an extra pair of hands and our holiday next week.
Its been most enjoyable even if I may have had a screaming banshee moment when I couldn't find the cyclocross course. I was struggling to get the bike back in the car with the kids having wandered around aimlessly whilst the clock was counting down to the start time. I'd parked too far away from the course.
That is the beauty or should I say deceptive nature of facebook isn't it? You see a nice sunny picture of my son standing proudly with his mountain bike complete with new Omega Pharma Quickstep top. What I didn't upload was a video of me trying desperately to get the darn bike in the car and then forgetting to give him his asthma inhaler so he had to abandon the race! He was doing so much better this time around too - he was halfway in the main pack before it all went tits up.
|How cool this kids jersey - I got it from this great site that sells all the professional cycling jersey's for children http://www.bobshop.com|
I still haven't touched a crisp - heading into my 5th week now, nor a cookie. The cake and chocolate are still proving problematic let me try again next week. I was doing exceptionally well until the 2 x McDonalds visits this week whilst out and about so am feeling a little bloated! I don't feel that flabby as being out and about and doing all the walking etc has helped.
So that's all my news folk. Be back soon....
