When mindee A (who comes 7.30-5)left yesterday said to dad ' see you after my holidays' (cos they are off next week and I am off week after that), he said ok have good one.
I am sitting in my dressing gown this morning at 7.25am finishing my coffee about to go in the shower when the door bell rings, I can see through the glass colour of mindee A dads uniform so I rush upstairs and tell ds to answer door and tell dad I am just getting dressed. I grab nearest clothes (not particularly nice ones!!), tie my hair back and run downstairs. I say sorry cos not expecting them and dad says he told his wife I had said see you after hols and she said he must have misheard me so he just turns up!!
I have no probs having mindee as I only have one other under 5 today but I thought they could have called/text me when they knew I was obviously not expectimg him.
I was so embarassed , but luckily dad is the sort that would just laugh it off.
So now am sat here smelly with unwashed hair. I am definitely ready for my holiday .

If I had not had another mindee coming at 9.30 and I had not been so lazy last night that I couldn't be bothered to wash my hair so had to do it this morning I probably would have been in bed until about 8, now that would have been embarassing!!
