For much of today every time two plates have spun one has crashed. E almost had a melt down at lunch (averted by taking him outside) S slipped over on the fake grass of the Barbie camp site, all washed down with a strong shot of the squabbling juice that spiked our water today.
One incident will summarise it all. After boredom caused him to disrupt everyone else's fun I finally persuaded Et that we could do some lego ninjago colouring printouts. Bingo! He loved that suggestion (my 17th) then, the printer wouldn't work. You know those moments.
Been an odd week for The Daddy One who should have been in Texas and has several more, yet to be confirmed, trips up and coming.
Walking round the house today I was struck by how Et plays a similar game where ever he is. The toy soldiers in the garden, the lego mini figs in the lego room, the playmobil characters all lined up in battle. A face off!
Been great to have friends over today. It is almost certain I would have needed Grit's emotions tips (well the ones that are open to me on my current regime of abstinence and with a decorator in the kitchen anyway) had I been the solo adult.
This little bunch of characters were the object of every one's desire at one point first thing, three hearts lusting after them, they raised pulses and voices and then, just now, I fell over them in a deserted heap on a floor. Neglected and unwanted.E's lego story comic strip
