The last few weeks have looked a bit like this! Overloaded, a little out of control and spent.Today, I sneaked out of work having finished off with a lock down and fire drill, picked up a variety of offspring from a variety of places and staggered in under a variety of bags to find this. Nanna Freddo had made a Maccaroni cheese of lush perfection for the starving swimmers and soccer players and ankle biter. (Shorty was really hungry.)
She had also washed, folded and ironed a pile of clothes and linen that I don't recognise as my own. They will not be touched by my children until I have enjoyed the last of the summery scent wafting from them. Nanna Lol- Lol and Grandad have also been heroic, indulging Shorty with vast tracts of baby sitting, book reading, ice cream licking, swimming, noodle slurping, pet shop loitering and toddler delivery. It takes a village!
