Just Another Manic Friday

It is now 10pm.
Today I have:
  • Got up (trust me, that wasn't a given after the week we've had)
  • Made 3 breakfasts
  • Got 2 children to school on time; one wearing uniform, one in mufti.
  • Remembered to take to bottle of wine as a donation for the Summer Fair, in return for mufti.
  • Gone to work:
    • taught 2 hours of advanced level English;
    •  collated my paperwork for 2 trips next week;
    • sorted out exam entries
    • remembered a present for my line manager's birthday tomorrow
  • Come home and had leftover chilli for lunch
  • Packed last minute things for R's Scout camp
  • Blitzed the living room
  • Culled M's bookshelf of books she never reads and taken them to school for the Summer Fair
  • Thrown away a lot of rubbish from M's drawers and relocated her dressing up clothes....
  • I could finally find a home for all her birthday presents which have been cluttering the house for 3 weeks.
  • Collected M from school
  • Spoken to R's form teacher about arrangements for a school activity trip
  • Attended a doctor's appointment for a repeat prescription (waste of my time, but necessary)
  • Taken M to a play date. We arrived to find that the mum, who had requested this date, wasn't at home.
    • phoned home to ask R to locate her mobile number on my email.
    • felt proud of R as we have only just started this experiment of leaving him at home for short periods and keeping in phone contact
  • Made R's dinner
  • Collected more bounty from the garden
  • Driven R to camp and helped him find his tent.
  • Collected M from the play date.
  • Popped into Sainsbury's Local for something quick for dinner
  • Come home to P-first evening we've spent together since Monday (and we were both on our separate devices - not good)
  • Poured myself this
  • Typed this post
  • Put a burger and some oven chips in the oven
  • Watched some TV with M then tucked her into and kissed her goodnight
  • Finally sat down with P to watch the celebrities on Masterchef cook far better food than we were eating.
Time for bed now. Night night.

You sound like you deserved that glass of wine. Had to chuckle though, at the great typo in Sainsbury's!
