I try to ignore the noise and the mess, but it does get me down a bit.
The up side of him being away is that I can have beans on toast for dinner, I can hold the remote, I can go to bed and read my book til all hours, and I can eat my own bar of chocolate (in bed).
We had a very full weekend. I certainly felt like I was the taxi driver for my kids - we had Auskick for the 6 year old (in the pouring rain), then the 10 year old had to be had his football game at 12.15, then back to get the 6 year old ready for a birthday party at one. Dropped him off and then back to the football game after missing only 1 quarter. Sat and crocheted at the match and that was just lovely. The boys played really well and won their match. I then took the 10 yr old home for a bath and then off to get the little one from the party.
We were all quite tired that night but the washing still had to be done - 2 lots of boys football gear (muddy) yuk!!!! Why do footballers have to wear white shorts?
Anyway, I know I should n't complain - I guess that is why I have this blog, to let off a bit of steam - I feel better already now.
Here is a photo of our victorious boys after their stunning win on the weekend - the team is not Port Adelaide (same guernseys though) - St. Marys.
