Terrific Thursday

So, it’s Thursday.  Yippee!  Best day of the week bar none.  Why?  I’ll tell you why.  Screecher Creatures No. 1 and 2 go to Big School.  It is also Montessori day for Screecher Creature No. 3. 

Just for four hours.  Just for four hours of bliss. 

Because then it is just me and the 18 month old who does this for an hour or two if I am lucky. 

And if he does then it is just me!!! 

Me and this.

But there is also this.

 And this.


The bedrooms look like this.

There is dog poo all over the garden.  And of late, Juno has taken to “marking” at the front door.  On the stones.  Where it sticks.  Where, this morning, it stuck to a child’s coat. Which was not discovered until said child was getting out of the car in the school yard.  I think you will forgive me if I don’t post pictures.  

But I don’t care.  I should be cleaning all of those things, and scooping the poop. But doing all of these things would take me four hours.  Then the troops would come home and undo all the cleaning so I would have to do it all over again.

No thanks. 

So on Terrific Thursday, this is what I did instead.

I made one of these.

And had it with this.

Sat down and did this. 

It’s the little things, isn’t it?    


  1. I hear you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (Although, whilst our own delightful dog does mini poops here and there, a neighbouring large dog(s) have been pooping presents all over the lawn..... Arrrrggghhhh)

  2. You're a disgrace;)....Terrific!

  3. Joanna, I know! Amn't I great? Actually on second thoughts, I'm a terrific disgrace! :)
