Subtle Mum of 3 eldest 15 and autistic, youngest 9. Had 1 day without them this half term and I was working on that day so no downtime whatsoever. Just started back at college and thought they were all back today which meant a day to do college work and not be on call for food/drink/arguments etc.
Or so I thought. Got to school with youngest and it was bloody closed. I even checked the website last week and didn’t see the notice about an inset day. Have been grumpy all day and feeling very hard done by and sorry for myself.
Please, tell me your stories of unexpected parenting fails to cheer me up!!!!
We were all set for our camping holiday with friends to make the most of the last week of the summer holiday. We'd had breakfast and I was loading the kids into the car so we could get moving as soon as DH got back from the shop. He came home with the news that he'd bumped into a colleague who said the school did all their INSET in the last week of the summer holidays and they were back at work the next day. Turned out he was right as well.
