Note to self! Don't use stairs as a slide!!!

While attempting to climb the stairs this evening with a rather painful unsteady gait as the good old RA decided it had rested for long enough and wanted to join the poor health party my body is having, anyway I digress. As I climb the small 14 steps of our staircase, I trip on step 11 (ish) and elegantly bump slide down the stairs again, I am in a heap at the bottom when I heart the sweet little voice of my daughter Gee, aged 7 yrs, she is standing there hands on hips and says "Mummy they are stairs not a slide and your grounded now for sliding down the stairs!!!" Don't you just love the funny side of kids perceptions.

Ouch! but I bet your daughter's remark took the sting out of that:-}

My daughter is often helpless with laughter when I take a swan dive and land in an awkward place - most recently the laundry bin - and has to wipe the tears away before she can help me back up!

When I stumbled in the supermarket the other day, my 19 year old son made sure I was ok then said "Take more water with it Mother, I've told you before!!"

So how long are you grounded for Rarah? ;-) xx
