Faith...

James suggested first thing this morning that he would like to see the "House of Flying Daggers" this evening. I misheard him, and thought he was sarcastically referring to our family life, not the Chinese film. I almost packed my bags right that minute - thank God he realised it was a misunderstanding...

I am exhausted after the three week action packed romp that we cheerfully call the school holidays. James has been working every single day including Easter Sunday. I will not be leaving the house this evening as I am looking forward to a deep bath, an early night and lots of indulgent sleep.

This morning all of the school traffic was back on the roads again, heralding an end to the Easter school holiday fun. The bus snaked along Croxted Road, through Lambeth and into work. The journey took 30 minutes longer this morning than it had for the last three weeks. How refreshing!

Darling Max and Freya set off for school with Ana, book bags in their little chubby hands, and a skip in their step, they should be tired out tonight! The sun was shining and song birds filled the trees.

My babies are happily occupied at school once more, Ana has become addicted to Krispy Kreme doughnuts and she ran out of contact lenses this very morning!

Hurrah, there is a god in heaven.

Sounds heavenly, DM. You deserve it. Poor Ana; Krispy Kreme cold turkey makes heorin withdrawal look like jolly good fun for all the family. You'll just have to make sure she has a constant supply - for her own good, of course.

For every time Ana even walks through the glittering doors of Krispy Kreme, you can add an inch to each of her thighs. The pricing structure is such that its cheaper to buy a dozen than it is to get just one. And when the thigh-chafing gets too uncomfortable, she will be able to use the drive-through. Looks like a foolproof plan Dulwich Mum!

You know it is the guidance and support of my loyal cyber chums that helps me through these trying times. Bless you both (sob)

A word of caution DM.... whilst it's obviously desirable that the help's considerably less attractive than yourself, if you let her doughnut addiction run too far, you may be in danger of loosing her completely, especially now Madonna seems to be shopping for a new child. Did you see the photos of Baby David's nanny? She's an exotic beauty. Surely that won't last long?

Dear Numberonescummum, I am afraid that this is a chance I am willing to take. I am in a corner here. Do you have any other suggestions?

I Beatrice said...

Your Max might like to meet my grand-daughter Marina, who is six. Wrong part of London of course - but she has a pink fairy castle complete with a dozen fairies (and real lights), in the room I have made for her at my house.......

Think about it.

Dear I Beatrice,

Your grand-daughter Marina sounds perfectly lovely! I must admit that her property sounds like a complete draw for my boy - we should engineer a meeting!

I Beatrice said...

Wrong side of town though, I fear. She lives in Richmond.....

Well James is talking about moving house, I shall bear Marina in mind...
