Hamper G (5) is constantly on my case during the day. Example, in the time it's taken me to write those few lines, we've had,
"Mum, I 'll get in the wardrobe and scratch the door . . . and you have to say; "What's that noise in the wardrobe?"
Then . . . I'll come out and you say "What's that creature coming out of the wardrobe?" . . . and I say . . . then you say . . . Mum!!! you didn't say it right. You're supposed to say . . . OK? Then when I say (?) you say . . ."
We've had much much more than that, but you get the
During those few lines I've tied her feet together
The weather has been so good all week that we've spent everyday playing/eating/walking in the park or garden and been exhausted by 8pm . . . .
There is so much I want to write about. "Mum, when are we going downstairs?"
"Mum, I'm hungry" . . . I'll quickly point out here that I have fed her this morning ;-)
Ok, I give up . . . I surrender. I know I should be grateful for these children surrounding me . . . I am. No really, I am. I'm sure things will be easier when they find a school place for Hamper. She needs and loves the stimulation that comes with socialising. (I'm E-mailing the authorities almost daily re the situation) . . . and I need and love the stimulation that comes from being alone . . . Alone with my piano, my weights, my pencil, my garden and my "laptop". You lot. Thankyou all for being here whether you're reading, commenting or blogging. "MUM!! Come ON! I thought you said you were DONE?"
I have to go. Just thanks. And thankyou God for a sunny day, a clear mind and three precious kids :-)
No time to edit . . . MUM!!!
. . . . OK!!!
"Oooo!! (feign surprise) What's that creature coming out of the wardrobe?"
