Yes, frequently.

And I forgot to pay DD1's re-enrollment fees for gymnastics on time, so they may not have her back. In which case she will not speak to me possibly for about a year sad.

Have left a very, very grovelly message on their answerphone and hoping for a ring back soon pleeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeease.

Me too, today has been hectic. Got loads to do tonight for work tomorrow and don't feel like doing any of it.

Too hot, bothered and tired to even stop MNing and get my stuff together and actually start the work. blush

3 washings done and drying/out drying
Huge pile of clean dry washing from yesterday to sort and put away
DD2 to nusery and pick up am
DD2 to school taster and pick up
Make snacks
Random repetitive meaningless pointless items of housework.
Make dinner which oftern gets uneaten
MN like mad to escape
Doing beds tonight as DP stuck on a train due to fire on the tracks!

Horrible combination of swamped and boredom.

And PosieParker kick that arse in his!
