I am sat in my dressing gown with this in my lap. Nice cup of tea and Mumsnet. Both DC teenage and gave not emerged for hours. AIBU to just stay here?brew

Sorry picture didn't attach. This is what's in my lap!

YANBU. I did the same yesterday. Although it was pretty embarrassing when a salesman came to the door at 1pm and I was still in my PJs 😁

Think of all the times that you were woken at 5am by the DC.

This is your reward for those times.

OldGrinch Fri 12-Apr-19 14:05:31

Yes that's a good way of thinking about it. All those 3 am feeds and feeling like a zombie the next day. Now the pair of them are permanently attached to their beds during the holidays it's great grin

Anyone else got a nice furry thing they are snuggling with?!

I’m in my pjs watching tv and the view of the living room beyond my lap is nowhere near as clean and tidy as yours so i’d Say you’re ok!

OldGrinch Fri 12-Apr-19 14:15:46

Ha ha all the mess on the table is luckily out of view! Have loads of washing to do, dishwasher to empty, bathroom to clean but just can't be bothered to move

I'm having a very similar day. Teenage DS is revising in his room, other DS is working and I'm doing very little. Not ashamed. Defiant.

LikeARedBalloon Fri 12-Apr-19 14:38:45

I've left work early as DD is at a play date all day. Now sat at home watching married at first sight US version 😁😁

Do my unshaved in months legs count?

Hahaha88 depends are you purring?

I am currently trying to fend off some kind of Pre-Easter cold, so have given myself permission to stay in bed with cat and iPad.

Hahaha88 Fri 12-Apr-19 14:47:46

@SecretWitch I mean I could purr......

TheQueef Fri 12-Apr-19 14:49:31

I'm in bed with the cat.
No photos because she's under the covers on my feet trying to hog the hot water bottle.
She approves enormously of my bed ridden state and has even brought sweaty hedgehog toy for later.

Same as the chief

Year 10 ds revising or on you tube, year 7 dd in town with mates

Charley50 Fri 12-Apr-19 14:52:23

I haven't got a pussy to stroke grin but I'm lying here under two blankets can't be arsed to even make myself a cup of tea!

Hiddenaspie1973 Fri 12-Apr-19 14:53:21

Yanbu 😊 on my day off in the week, I do the same when I can. More so if the weather is dire. Even better when the cat's on my lap.

Worlds0kayestmum Fri 12-Apr-19 14:54:36

My poorly toddler is napping and I'm lounging on the sofa watching greys Anatomy and ignoring the washing up

mollyblack Fri 12-Apr-19 14:55:37

My son is at holiday club, i came home from work early and i'm under a blanket watching fleabag eating a hot crossed bun. I wish my cat would come and sit on me to complete my happy moment 🤣

YouTheCat Fri 12-Apr-19 14:57:41

My moggy is ignoring me. I am on holiday and had many good intentions of doing stuff (and I have done some stuff this week just not as much as I was going to). Then I had a revelation! No bugger else in this house spends their holidays cleaning and painting so why the hell should I?

Instead, I have watched all the Star Wars films, in order. Just watching the last 30 minutes of the Last Jedi now. Then I reckon I've got 30 minutes until dd comes in from work.

I'm lying on the sofa with my legs up on the arm. In the gap between my legs and the seat there is a lakeland terrier, snuggled up to my bum, snoring.

LakieLady Fri 12-Apr-19 14:58:57

In case of confusion, it's the dog that's snoring, not my bum.

Pretty sure it's illegal to remove a sleeping cat from your lap anyway. You're stuck there for a while I'm afraid, may as well make the best of it!
