"You know, A, sometimes when I find myself doing complex stuff like that, I ask myself how I got here. This isn't exactly what I signed up for when I was born, you know? But then I just do it anyway….Shit!"
"You just said a bad word, Mommy!"
"Sorry. I forgot that I was in polite company."
"It's all right, Mommy. You can watch your language next time."

"Done. Pick up all the scraps and throw them away, please."
"Are you going to help me, Mummy?"
"No. I have to scrub the toilet. That's one of those pesky adult things I have to do."
"But I want you to help me clean up Mummy."
"Sure. If you help me scrub the toilet after."

The non-participants at a pool party.

I'm sitting at a table with 3 five-year-old boys.

We got a Minecraft Skeleton Archer 😀

Loot from the piñata.

"We seem to keep coming down with these stomach ailments."
"I am going to do something about it."

I need a break. You know how I know? I am beginning to mix up my chain collisions. That just does not happen in my world unless I am shit tired.

I woke up this morning thinking it's Friday. Then I found out that someone forgot to tell me I have a trial next Tuesday which is giving me all kinds of panic because I keep thinking it is Friday and I am rapidly running out of time.

"What do you mean by his phone number appears to be no longer working?"
"Means it is not working la!"
"Because it doesn't have bills to pay so it doesn't need a job?"

"He was travelling along when the traffic light suddenly stopped…"
"How did the traffic light stop?"
"Maybe it was travelling alongside him."

"…slightly gentle kiss to the front car."

Cider of the day. I still prefer Magners Whisky Cider though. Or maybe I prefer the memories associated with Magners Whisky Cider. This has a more acidic and less vanilla finish.

And then I will spend most of this week covering 2 colleagues instead of just one.
