the morning after the night before

1 Nov

good morning my loves

pinch and a punch for the first of the month

do you want leftovers in your lunch

bowl out to the sink please

I can’t find my shin pads

clean your teeth

here’s a bag for your soccer gear

please don’t leave your pyjamas there

shoes on now or you’ll all be late

kiss goodbye

see you later

i love you mum

have a great day

good luck at soccer

fill up your water before the game

i will, don’t worry


see you after school

footsteps leaving the house, then footsteps returning

oh…and Mum…if you’re stealing any of my candy today, don’t take the doritos

    It’s those moments where you think, “Bugger it, they KNOW me.”

    Of course now all you can think about is bloody doritos…

    Love your words.

    How was your ‘Halloween’? Were the sultana gratefully received?

    pretty much the same here…except for the candy part. It’s more like…
    oh mom…can you bring my Iron-man/ star-wars figure to school when you come to pick me up (and would you mind hanging around for an hour or two)!

    Sigh…’candy’? Whatever happened to lollies? And how are Doritos candy?

    Ha! I ate one of Lily’s Freddos last night. (In my defence, she gave it to me)
