thank heaven for smoke alarms ….

so I come home from work and hubby says: ” make sure I get something decent to eat when I bring big kid back from football!” and I go: “hmpf” – you know, working mum and all that and..

OK, every now and again, I tend to forget to plan the week ahead, and…

OK, every now and again, we have an awful lot of chippy´s  for one week –

but hey, nobody´s perfect!

– especially NOT me 😦

Out comes the frying pan and I thought it was a clever idea to cook meatballs (or rather the German equivalent) – let´s make it two frying pans, for next week, too.

And since women are known to be multi-tasking, lets  send a couple of text messages while I am at it, after all, I haven´t spoken to my pal for at least 3 days!!!

Mobiles ringing, my colleague, apparently she had a call from BigBoss (bless him, he either hasn´t got my mobile or home phone number, yet, or he can´t cope looking it up on our system 😉

So, she tells me important package still there, I phone him to tell him that I did instruct forwarder to pick up package – yes boss – I did tell them which company we are, – yes boss – I did tell them to pick it up today, – yes boss – this is my smoke alarm in the background —————-

Aaargh, wee kid comes running down the stairs, screaming, middle kid follows in hot pursuit – of course – screaming…

I mean, come on, they know me, they know it can only be the dinner, I don´t smoke, what else can it be??????

To cut a long story short

– chips again

– sulking husband

– grinning neighbours

but I did manage to kick some forwarders butt to come and pick up the damn package which, no doubt, caused all the chaos in the first place 😉


I am your average wife,mother,friend,employee....a bit lost in my world, a bit crazy at times but always good for a laugh - I think ;-)
