I overheard my 8 year old telling his sister how she was ruining his day, she subsequently screamed back that he had in fact ruined her entire life.
She has now taken to calling him a big lump of coal….
I’ve been waiting for a delivery from sports direct via My Hermes – I received an email saying that the parcel had been delivered to someone at my address. Obviously with lock down we were most certainly at home, but none of us had signed for, nor accepted a delivery. I had a quick check online and when I get to the right place the details come up saying it was signed for (?) A quick look at the signature box reveals that the signature is unavailable because of their contactless deliveries. What the hell?!? Cue me going outside in the rain to find my sorry looking parcel, soaking wet from the rain at the wrong porch! What is it with MyHermes and their weird delivery practices I had one guy last week shouting my name up to the (wrong) window. Utter madness!

The parcel from yesterday were my new dumbbells (my mild attempt at getting lockdown fit!) I’d had them out less than 5 minutes attempting to do a workout and Nancy has managed to bosh her nose with one. There was that horrendous moment when I actually thought she had broken her nose. Luckily she hasn’t but I think the moral is clear – exercise is evil.
We released Jerry the caterpillar/moth today, the whole family were gathered for such a tremendous occasion. It was all going so well until he decided, mid take off to change course and fly into first Nancy’s and then my face. Oh how we screamed! This is not shaping up to be a good day for Nancy!

Found a dead bird under our bed this afternoon! Fucking fantastic – the worst thing is I can’t be entirely sure how long it’s been there…..
Sunday 3rd May
All of these Facebook / instagram challenges are doing my head in now – everyday there seems to be a new one. I am terrified to ‘like’ one in case people see that as an opening to tag me in one of their ’10 days to showcase’ albums, books, what makes them a mother, what makes them a human and so on and so on…. Full disclosure if you tag me in one I will not get involved I have enough on my plate right now that getting my teeth clean before midday equates to a massive win, partaking in these might just tip me over the edge!
Monday 4th May
May the fourth be with you today…
Darcy is terrified of a rocking horse – as soon as she sees the horse she screams we have had to hide the noble steed for fear that the neighbours might think we are torturing her.
