Don't get me wrong Buddy is a delight and the lie ins (the best and most peaceful part of the day) probably off set the calamity household that this has turned into. Not to mention the glimpses of Kevin the teenager from my 11 year old and his constant bickering with my 9 year old. He has been the hardest work. Calamity though has to be the front runner. For example, the weekly Aldi shop should be event free. Nope. Daughter decides to pop youngest on the packing station (after I told her not to) and am alerted to this fact when he falls off head first onto the floor. Cue crying, packing at break neck speed and judgemental queue of customers who are predominately more concerned that this might hold the queue up. "oh looks like he's got quite a large bump on his head" "well he would have seeing as he's just landed on it". Dah. Actually the bump was a previous injury whereby my daughter (I'm seeing a pattern here) decided to show him how to scoot down our ramp on his bottom - again landing on his head onto the concrete path.

Then there was the severe grazing from the cycling holiday club and dented helmet. On Sunday he had paint balling and whilst getting ready to go (again another pattern) he says "I've banged my shin" blood was everywhere all over the carpet down the stairs. So had to patch him up and salvage the carpet. My daughter got stung by a wasp at Hever. Luckily a well prepared mum had some wasp sting cream. My eldest followed suit last week rolling down a hill again another well prepared mum - this time my oldest trusted friend, also had cream in her handbag. I will be purchasing some shortly.

Now this has left little time in the way of jogging although I have been out on my bike quite a few times and managed 2 little jogs last week. I kicked back Saturday and mixed my drinks which means I haven't lost anything (and all the other little indulgences during the holidays).

Thanks for all of you who read my blog on a regular basis and I hope your holidays are fairing better than mine!
