Clap, clap, clap out of my tiny mind. As Adrian Mole once said on a family holiday, “its raining and boring and I want to go home”. Ditto, the problem is that we are at home.
I have been waiting all day for it to stop raining so I can go to the post office, younger boy has refused to come with me if it doesn’t stop raining. I have nearly vomited clearing up residual baked bean mess from the boys (my relationship with baked beans is bordering on phobic), I have told older boy that it isn’t clever to swear, reprimanded younger boy several times for making too much noise and eaten too much strawberry cheesecake. Even the cheesecake has annoyed me cause Husband bought Strawberry instead of Chocolate. I remember once reading a self-help book for stay at home Mums written by a wonderful, inspiring woman called Melissa Hill. She talked about critical days , of which today is undoubtedly one and how to handle them. So how does one deal with boring days at home.
Lets see, why not get stuck into a mountain of chores and therapeutic decluttering, some days this really works, at such times I almost prefer throwing things away to buying things and I am a shopaholic. Today, this isn’t going to work as I am far too lethargic. At this point I should mention that the kids are positively contented with playing on the Xbox and making noise. I know I could suggest some sort of activity along the lines of, lets all play a game together, but I know in advance that there wont be any enthusiasm. It goes on and on. I suppose it’s just a case of getting through the day and hoping the rain will be stop. Watch his space whilst I find some inspiration.
