but wait...there's more...

  • Its not nice to be woken at 8.30 on the last day of sleep ins (supposedly) after getting to sleep at 3am for second night in a row by 14 yr old looking disgusted by swollen eyeballs and drool, asking for other 14 yr old who is, most sensibly, still asleep because school goes back tommorrow, or so stupid mother insisted last night at some point. SINCE WHEN did they stop having pupil free days on the first day of 4th term?????
  • Realise that I have ripped myself off a child free day....cry a lot...sniff
  • Am belted out of way by hyperactive 13 yr old who MUST GO TO SCHOOL IMMEDIATLY, despite the fact that there is no food and mother needs to go to bank for cash.........
  • Raid everyone for 5 cent pieces so child can go to school and eat and pray that bus driver is kind enough to ignore out of date bus pass
  • Sigh.....
  • realise that said 13 yr old has left me with entire feral hovel bedroom to sort all by myself, cry, decide that Im not doing it......await tantrum at some point regarding this
  • get on bus with stinky tracksuit on and try to get a bookshelf bargain at op shop, not happening, no bookshelves to be had, cry again
  • Go to stinky bilo to get supplies for school that doesn't start tommorrow
  • Sit on bus stop with all the other ferals with stinky tracksuits on and come home
  • Grrrrrrrrr..........

there is nothing worse than the unexpected school day- not even the unexpected school child at door or the unexpected need for a fridge full of school snacks.......poor you.at least when you get on a bus , there is nothing unexpected- you must expect it to be horrific & it wouldnt usually let you down. At least , in a tracksuit, you have dressed accordingly.........love you Mary.tomorrow ( which never comes) will be better........
