See you on the other side…

I’m gathering my strength. Breathing deeply. Filling my energy sources with chocolate. Making sure I have plenty of earplugs.


Because today, we are all going to a friend’s house for a sleepover.

The only difference is that my friend and her husband won’t be there. That’s right – they are leaving Sir Pe and I (and the dog) in charge of our two kids, their four kids (8 yrs old and younger) and their house…

We may none of us be the same again.

Wish us luck – and see you on the other side of the padded cell.

    • They are paying us in food and drink! Veggie lasagne, chocolate mousse and wine (although being responsible childminders, we probably won’t indulge very much)…

    I suggest you grind up a Lunesta or four into a little hot cocoa and tuck them in at 6:30.

  8. Oh my people with 4 children shouldn’t expect to get any babysitting. I hope they are suitably grateful. Sounds like a grand old time for the kids, though, one of those times they’ll look back on.

    • Actually, I think that people with four children are those most in need of a night out! It will be a fun adventure for us all.. I hope.
