Almost tea time...



I sat down this afternoon, put the kettle on, put some cupcakes in the oven to bake, found the magazine I'd been wanting to read all week, planned out what I was going to share with you about our holiday in my next blog post and in true "Would you believe it?" fashion, the phone rang, my youngest daughter was feeling poorly and needed collecting from school.
Apart from being one of the longest sentences I've written, it goes to show you that you just can't have your cake and eat it ... well not until you've driven to school, the tea's gone cold and you've spent an hour or two administering calpol and run out of time to read your magazine.
I WILL, I WILL get those holiday photos uploaded - promise!

That's what mums do. Anyway delayed gratification is sometimes the best. Enjoy the magazine when you get to read it.
