Yes....again yesterday i spent approx 1 hour driving round all the local shops on my annual Easter Egg Hunt.
Sorry to ruin your illusion of the easter bunny etc....I KNOW HE DOES NOT EXIST!!!!!
None of the major supermarkets had any left....and last week b4 we went to Butlins they were falling off the shelves there were so many!!!
But as usual i forgot to buy them.
Then today i was absolutely thrown to pieces by the clocks changing (please don't say that DH was wrong and they did't change after all)
Is it just me or do any of you suffer when the clocks change....i am really at sixes and sevens!!!!! ....actually i don't know whether that should be fivesees and sixes...or sevenses and eights???? I am totally out of it today!
Then just to fully piss me off i am reminded bitterly of 'HOW THE NT'S LIVE' when next door hosts it's annual 'Easter Egg Hunt'....in their garden....mum,dad ,'perefct' daughter and son....granny,nanny and camcorder capturing it all to be viewed at precisely 4.30 in time for high tea at exactly 5pm......followed by baths at 6 and 7 and bed at 7 and 8 ....each child not complaining that they can't sleep and snuggling away in the land of Zzzzzzs
Actually- i have to 'put up' with this every day to some degree....they are always off for family get togethers and shopping trips that i only dream of.
For me.... be it Christmas,easter or birthdays...there is not much about it that i enjoy.....it's too hard keeping everyone content and away from eachothers throats or from having meltdowns.
You only have to look at my posts for today to see how frazzled my head is. I just can't seem to think straight at all today.
Friends and relatives had already bought chocolate eggs (which will usually last the boys several months) so we bought a little present instead. Both are mad about spiderman (or "Byder-mah" as ds2 calls it) so we bought them Spiderman cups, a bowl and a spoon with Spiderman on instead.
Holidays to us usually involve a lot of careful planning for Meltdown Avoidance. Even then it tends to go wrong. The Christmas holidays were hell and we've got even longer off for Easter. Aaaaarrrrrgggghhhh!
Hi LGJ- I have 2 (maybe 3 ) autistic boys age almost 6,9 & 12.... the 'NT's' are what us Special Needs Parents call the 'Neuro Typical'...basically those who do not have Autism,ADHD and other conditions which display 'Behaviour Problems' as symptoms!!!!
(in laymans terms for me anything vaguely 'social' presents problems for my boys as they cannot cope with 'Normal Family get togethers!'
yes CT our easter chocs last ages too...that's if DH and me don't scoff the lot! one thing i guess we are luck about with our boys which maybe i should be grateful for is that they simply share the whole lot- so the one who doesn't like the actual egg...even though we know it's still the same dairymilk- just in a egg shape- which ofcourse he cannot accept..... ear=ts the bars of chocs...and the egg gets scoffed by me!!!!
Mrs F - you are just the kind of mum I can relate to! I am hopelessly disorganised and dh seems to live on another planet. DD(12) bought eggs for the rest of us a week ago but could I organise myself to get her's??? Luckily I managed to get her a decent one yesterday. Today she has opted to go to a friend's house (HER mum has organised a big easter egg hunt in their (extensive) garden!!
My guys are dairy free......easy WE DONT DO EASTER EGGS....instead we had EASTER breakfast....soya chocolate smoothered pancakes and hot cross buns......on a hangover they made me feel 10 x worse!!!!!!!!
