Drove the kids to the school bus, drove back, cleared the kitchen, filled the dishwasher, made my bed, emptied the drier, emptied the washing machine, filled the drier, filled the washing machine.
Took my big car to be serviced and got a tiny car in return for the day which was soooooo hard to get in and out after the double exercise classes of yesterday it wasn't funny at all.
Not one bit. I must have looked like a right idiot taking 45 seconds each time
Then I went to the supermarket because apparently the universe might have imploded without Nutella for another day... obvs.
Then I drove to school (45 min of roadworks) to pick up No 3 and take him to the specialist for his back. He's fine. He'll live. He's most excited to have an MRI scan in a couple of days. Weird child.
Then I drove him back to school (45 min of roadworks) and did my 'Italian lesson' to the pupils and teachers who are going to Florence next month.
Then I grabbed (figuratively speaking of course) No 2 from the same school and took him (45 min of roadworks) to fracture clinic where they put him in a 'soft cast' which we'll be able to remove without supervision or doctor checking in 5 weeks.
What if it's not fixed? of badly fixed? or not fixed enough?
The doctor did NOT look like a doctor. I know, I know I shouldn't judge a book by its cover... but I've seen bin men dressed smarter. Call me old fashioned, but... sweaty forehead and creased t-shirts? Yuck.
Then I dropped him back home and I drove to the bus stop to pick up the other two.
Back home for home cooked Bolognese pasta (... she says smugly)... and THEN back to school for a meeting (45 min of roadworks).
I was dead.
The dog didn't get walked, but I did remove my make up before bed.
And I did finish the book... which is totally brilliant until the last two pages then... well I'd like to say it's genius and I just don't get it... but actually it's probably just wrong and nonsensical and the author had lost the plot...
Read it and let me know what you think. I'm seriously interested.
The highlight of my day:
... the Boss...
