School Holiday joy

Ah, the first Monday of the first week of the school holidays. This morning I actually thought I would,

a) be able to finish a sentence

and

b) be able to finish a cup of coffee before it went cold

and

c) be able to put a load of washing on before my children started to maim each other.

My theory is that Mother Nature makes us naive enough to think that today will be different. This time I’ll be the perfect mother and my children will be characterless robots with clean bedrooms. How’s the serenity?
