Boy 1: “Mum what is for breakfast” (every single morning, he asks this question.)
Me: “toast, muesli, weetbix”
Boy 1: “mmm can you please cook me poached eggs on toast?”
Me: “Of course”.
Boy 2: “Can I please play the PlayStation?”
Me: (laughing) “No.”
Boy 1: “are my eggs ready?”
Boy 2: “Why can’t I play, the PlayStation?”
Me: “Have you finished your book review?”
Boy 2: “No”
Boy 1: “What happened to the eggs?
Me: “Nothing. They are poached like you asked.”
Boy 2: “I hate reading and book reviews”
Me: “That’s ok, you still need to do it. So start.”
Boy 1: “I hate poached eggs”
Me: “That’s ok, I just cooked them for you and you will eat them. So start”.
This was the 6.30am start of day 7. Grateful, this frustrating start didn’t set the tone for the day.
I spent time again in the garden, for the Womankind nature challenge, wrote my diary entry for that. (the feature photo, me and the big guy hanging out in nature on a tree stump.)
This afternoon just before school pick-up, I had another interview at Double Brass my local coffee shop. I honestly cannot wait to sit down and write about it. I am loving this new little project that I have going on. I am getting positive feedback, and it is not only inspiring me but my boy’s as well. I was telling boy 1 about the interview during our after school chat in the car, sitting in school traffic. He was so intrigued, impressed and interested in everything that I was telling him about the lady that I interviewed. (the interview is with the first lady to fire a missile in the Royal Australian Navy and will be published on the 9th September).
End of day 7
Looking forward to putting my little darlings to bed, and then pigging out on the mars bar pods that my husband left for me in the fridge.
Found a pile of wood that my husband cut for me to burn, while he is at work.
