Day 13!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Normal 3 cups of tea while rushing around making breakfast for my boys (8 & 14 ).

1st stop school run, drive to work with a positive attitude and put a smile on my face while saying morning to everyone. Lunch time, new routine, no going home, nice walk to the shops for some fresh air and a bag of mints to munch on in the afternoon.

Easy peasy work.

3.30 school run,,,,,, yeap the day goes down hill from here................... stroppy 14 year old wants to give me attitude, I shout back then shut myself in the kitchen while making tea which I know will be wasted and thrown in the bin.

5pm the house seem to be carm again, boys in there bedrooms while I surf the net.

Give up nagging about school uniform and homework ..........

I know at 6pm THE SIMPSONS WILL BE BLARRING AROUND THE HOUSE....................... must keep it together.

Does anyone else have this horrible tea time part of the day, I would normally put my body outside for a cig.................

You used to be able to buy them in woolworths

unfortunately when I was a smoker {dirty woord that}

could never afford one

not sure where to go now

;) ;)


Hey Jan,

That all sounds *so* familiar!! Almost identical to our house (I`m away just now working though).

Can certainly relate to the "attitude" that you mention from the dear offspring! Isn`t it just fun??!!

You`re a saint staying on target despite all this.. we head into week 3 tomorrow.. yeayyy!!

Having good friends on here is certainly a big help; so glad that I found the place.

Keep it up!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



Morning Jan

Hope your feeling less stressed todayHEHE. Kids in school make the most of it. Maybe treat your self for being so good .xxxxx


Totally with you Jan, I've an 18yr old and a 16 yr old, my daughter @ 18 isn't too bad now, over the worst, son @ 16, even though I regard him as my best mate, things have got ugly at times between him and I, they would drive you mad at times. Wish I could go back to when they were 8 and 6, I remember I used to tell them they weren't allowed to get any older, did they listen? Do they ever, lol


thats what happens when you feed kids, they get bigger and turn in to nice teenagers,, you wish,,when they reach about 5or 6 they should stop growing,,dont you all agreey,life would be so ease keep the faith tony
