....I just wish they'd leave it a few minutes and not be stalking us, waiting for us to get home. They keep ringing the doorbell every few minutes when we are at home too to get the kids to go out (which they do, but when I want them to come in, they don't get the message to say that they really need to go home!). I had our two plus 4 others all yesterday afternoon and it gets a little wearing. There just seems no let up. Ah, I hear them yet again.......

Guess I should get over it really.

I don't see why - my dc whine for food/drinks/tv/pc/wii/friends round before I unlock the door.

Know your place woman -= we are only here to serve

oooh I have this as well, it can feel stifling, can't it. but on the other hand it is beneficial to our kids to socialise like this. swings and roundabouts....

Sooo true theprofiterolethief, I guess I keep forgetting my place in life! I think I really do feel stiffled, at least it's the end of the holidays and back to some sort of normality next week.....

Then you can get back to all your mundane chores during school hours so you can get back to pampering and fullfilling their every need after school

Ah, sadly not - back to work - at their school! I must be a total glutton for punishment grin

Then perhaps you shoudl organise your workload for a night shift so you are available whey they snap their fingers wink

Ooooh, playing out politics are causing strife in this household too.

Been having my dd plus 4 or 5 others in the garden during the day. In the evenings they decamp to the living room and I am relegated to the kitchen.

DD had a falling out with one of her friends this week, so didn't want her to come in the house to play. Her rather irrate Mother came round, hammering on the bloody door and demanding to know why her dd wasn't allowed in my house with the othersshock

This is a woman who doesn't allow the children in her garden, never mind inside the househmm I'm starting to think she has the right idea.
