I am having one of those moments now - am hiding up at our allotment because I had to escape from the DC hmm. DC2 and 3 have been utterly foul today and I have had enough. I would have tipped over into shouty mode if I had stayed at home, I think (DH is at home with them - I basically fled as soon as he stepped through the door).

Am hoping that some weeding and watering will help to calm me down and let me see them as just frustrated and tired children rather than devils incarnate which is how they currently seem...

:.....and the only place you can escape them is the bathroom as it's the only door with a lock on it hmm

Oh yes, we all have times like that. I often say to DH that absence makes the heart grow fonder so make these children (or me) absent so i can grow fond of them again.

Oh yes, just a minute to actually THINK ... and breathe, everyone!
