Wednesday night woes

Today’s #humpday is sponsored by the pain of gel polish removal and of course the teenage delight! Now as we are all aware the children had 6 weeks off for the summer. Those 6 weeks gave plenty of time to have nails painted beautifully etc. However the beautiful nail polish isn’t allowed in school, this is a fact well known by all. However of course said nail polish was still not removed this morning in time for school because it had been left to the last minute and she couldn’t get it off in time~marvellous! Fortunately for her, my wonderful better half came to her rescue and assured the school that it would be off tonight ready for school tomorrow.

Cue a trip to purchase more remover and more time then spent removing it, obviously I was no help at all and just hurt her nails when I was assisting her but hey ho!

Finally her fingers are polish free and she starts getting ready for her bath, the bath that clearly she felt would regulate it’s own depth and obviously didn’t need any attention from her so she was free to sashay around her untidy bedroom singing and looking at herself in the mirror of course!

Meanwhile because I have nothing better to do with my evening I go into the bathroom and turn the taps off literally before the bath overflows and she announces that she was just coming to do that~seriously?!

All that’s left now is to wait until her ‘quick’ hour long bath is finally over, after which she will no doubt waltz out leaving the floor flooded and the towels, yes towels (one wouldn’t possibly be sufficient!)soaking wet.
By which time I will probably be too tired to have a bath myself and will resort a super quick shower before falling into bed.
All that and she’s only been home just over 24hrs! Happy#humpday

Paddling pool days

Clearly yesterday wasn’t stressful enough so today this happened!

Midway through putting up the tent in not enough space and then trying to get the other paddling pool inside it I nearly lost the plot, started to wonder why on earth I was doing this and then thought back to my own childhood and the answer was clear.

I remember days in the garden with water and dens. I remember my Mum bringing us out a picnic tea and Dad stopping what he was doing to get out `the magic carpet’ for us so we could go on wonderful adventures.
I remember all of those things and how much fun we had and I want my children to have the same memories too.

Memories really do last a lifetime.
Thank you to my lovely parents to giving them to us, in turn I hope I am passing them on to my crazy bunch to enjoy today and to look back on when they are older.
