The Bright Side

July 11, 2013

I have had one of those weeks that if I stop and think too much I will be overwhelmed by the crap and revert to my hiding under the duvet away from the world position. That’s no good for anyone in this family so I am forcing myself to focus on the funny.

In no particular order these things have happened recently:

:: I drove away from the petrol station with my wallet on the roof. This is even more stupid when you realise that as I put it on the roof I thought to myself that was a really silly place to put it and I mustn’t drive off with it there. 2 minutes later I did.

:: I had to fish a poo out of a paddling pool using an empty flower pot.

:: I forgot to press the button on the taps when running the kids bath and so I got drenched in cold water over my head from the shower.

:: Another person’s child stuck his Great Tit down my t-shirt

:: I went out and forgot to take the nappies. After 4 years you’d think I’d have got the hang of this parenting lark.

:: When picnicking in the children’s play area in a park in Worthing with friends a 20 something wearing just shorts starting using the play equipment to work out. Priceless moment when he started doing legs raises on a bench next to another mum. Her face was priceless!

:: Feeding the ducks and every time Kate threw a piece of bread she shouted THERE YOU GO DUCK.

:: Chatting to Piran and saying that he had his Daddy wrapped around his little finger. He then proceeded to check all his fingers looking confused.

:: I stumbled out of my bedroom at silly o’clock the other morning (before 6am most likely) and was confronted by this.

    Apart from the wallet on the roof thing which I would be fuming with myself about the rest is pretty funny when you think about it. And don’t worry about forgetting nappies, I’ve gone out without them before. I just grab the changing bag and go. Never really think to check whether there’s actually anything in it!

      I was so mad at myself. But I have since got the wallet back, minus the cash but that is not surprising!
