As previous mentioned, on Saturday I was having some well over due freedom. My daughter was at a sleepover and Mr Secret Blog and our son was out for the day/evening watching car racing and weren’t due back till very late when I would be fast asleep, and our son would of fallen asleep in the car and could be popped straight into bed.
I went shopping with my friend which was so much fun, we stopped for coffee, we went out for an ‘all you can eat buffet’ dinner, talked the hind legs off a donkey, then headed home.
My evening was perfectly planned, I was to blitz downstairs so I could chill out in tidy harmony. I was going to drag out all the presents I have bought so far and wrap them up while catching up with the latest episode of The Exorcist as well as several episodes of Eastenders. I then was going to get into bed, write my daily blog post and watch the movie Life staring Jake Gyllenhaal and Ryan Reynolds.
My original plan was to also drink a bottle of wine but that idea went out the window when the doctor put me on antibiotics for sinusitis.
I arrived home from dinner at 8 o’clock, by 9 o’clock the house was relatively tidy and I was ready to watch my shows and wrap the presents. Time was ticking on, but the boys weren’t due back until after midnight so I was confident I would fit everything in.
Until someone started knocking on the door.
I jump up, confused as to who it can be, I open the door to see a half drunk Mr Secret Blog and our little boy. Mr Secret Blogs family had just dropped them off, he was waving bye and shouting ‘thank you for a great time’, our son walked in wideawake asking for a drink. All I can think of is your home too early I’ve not finished what I wanted to do!!!!!!
I then realise, our kids presents are all over the living room floor!!! I shoo them both out the way and quickly throw everything into bags and stash them under the stairs. Turns out the car racing they went to finished really early, his dad offered to drive so Mr Secret Blog in all his wisdom had a few pints. So instead of me doing what I had planned, I had a tiered (but happy) little boy to put to bed and big tiddly man to put to bed!!!! By the time that was done I pretty much passed out with annoyance.
That, in short, is why my blog post wasn’t written. Rather frustrating as the day before I posted about how much I was enjoying taking the time to write and didn’t want to let anyone down by not posting. But sadly life gets in the way sometimes!!!!
How was your weekend? Did you brave going to town on a Saturday before Christmas?! I would love to hear in the comments below!
