What was I thinking?

What did I think I was doing,

Staying out so late?

It was a bloody brilliant night.

Next morning? Not so great. 😬

Not a single drop of booze

Did pass my lips last night.

So how come that I still woke up

Feeling a bit shite. 😩

Mummy must be out of practice.

Yes. That must be it. 

So I just need to pull my socks up,

Come back fighting fit. 😏

That extra hour

No one loved the clocks going back

Quite as much as I did.

Will someone please do me a favour? 

And tell that to my kid? 😩

It used to be a great event,

That extra hour in bed.

These days, all it does is wreck

Our wee routine instead. 😱

It will take bloody weeks for us

To get back in the swing.

By then it will be time to put them

Forward in the spring. 🙄

Ding dong merrily

Anyone else had that alarm

Go off inside their head?

Mine went off at 4am,

Whilst I was still in bed. 😲

How many weeks to go is it?

It can’t be less than 10?

Then dun dun dah, oh shit. It will

Be Christmas time again. 😬

I haven’t bought a single thing!

I’d better move my arse,

Before the queue in every single 

Shop becomes a farce. 🤨

Déjà vu

Bloody hell, this year has just been

Plagued with illnesses.

(You must be getting sick of reading 

Blog posts about this). 🙄

Toddler has got Croup. AGAIN!

For the third time this year.

But keeling over with eyes rolling?

That gave me the fear. 😱

So back to A&E we went

In an ambulance.

She’s fine now, but when they’re that wee,

You just can’t take the chance. 🤒

Halloween is coming

Halloween is coming, there

Can be no doubt of that.

You cannot move in Tesco’s for

A tonne of witches hats. 🙄

I’ve got the pile of sweeties ready.

Should I get some more?

We always seem to get a hundred 

Guisers at the door. 🤔

Toddler’s outfit’s bought, yes it 

Was on the shopping list.

They’ll look so bloomin’ cute in it,

That I could not resist. 😍

Good mood

As far as days go, yesterday

Was really very good. 

Toddler spent the whole day in a

Bloody brilliant mood. 😃

It was smiles all round and not 

A tantrum was in sight.

I didn’t have to raise my voice.

They were just a delight. 😇

It was so nice to have a day 

Without a hissy fit,

And spend the whole day without thinking 

Once, ‘You little shit’. 😜

Potty training

And so this week, if nothing else,

Should be quite entertaining. 

Yes, the time has come when we

Must start the potty training. 😝 

Some kids scream the place down if

They have a dirty nappy, 

So I don’t really have high hopes,

As toddler is quite happy. 😂

But we will see what happens when

The nappy is not there.

Will they try the potty out? 

Or will they just not care. 😬
