Turn Back.........

My brothers, I can explain everything.....

I was running away, with my cat, and carrying one of those poles with my meagre belongings wrapped up in a tatty ball over my shoulder, when these bells chimed and told me: Turn back, Jenny Smith, turn back..

Alright, the truth was that they gave me 30 years, and while I was looking through the bars, thinking of you all, I started to make friends with this little bird......

Alright, Alright, I had a bloody headache all through the summer! There! You've got it out of me! Happy now?/?

Yes, this headache has another name, a more technical one, known as bloody kids on school holidays! Bastards! I am quite certain that this has been the worse summer ever in that respect. Daughter, 14, has given me such GBH of the earholes, and Son (nearly 12) well....he's just Son really. They're not very lovable ages I can tell you.

Daughter has really been the worse. Bursting into tears in the middle of M&S while shopping for shoes. A kindly saleslady offered her a drink of water. I gave her a sweet smile which read Why don't you sod off and leave us alone? Is this not embarassing enough, you old busybody! But what I actually said was No thank you. And that was the least of it!

At least Son buggers off out!

They've gone back to school today, and good bloody riddance I can tell you! Sod 'em, its just me and Jeremy Vine now, until half bloody term!

So how come I've still got a headache then????

School hols can be a trying time... kids trying the parents on and parents trying for some peace and quiet. The two are not conducive to harmony.

Nice to see you back, headache or no.

So glad to have you back as I missed you !!!!

It's only when you're an adult that you realise how horrible the summer holidays are - and that comes from a person who doesn't have children...

Hello Treasures, a quick one between the washing up and putting the sheets in the machine!

AV, yes, you are so right! Lovely to see you too.

Sub, my darling, you have been suffering too. My heart is with you.

Yes, SS, you too have felt my pain. You are so fortunate that they are behind you.

M&J, have missed you so much. Yes, I agree - and to be honest, they weren't that great when I was a kid actually. We never went on holiday or anything.....

Hi Jason, thank you for your words. I don't believe we've had the pleasure. So pleased to meet you.

It is so much quieter now on our new busy little cul de sac. Bloody kids - they should be at school all evening too.

Hahaha! I've been away as well but I'm back and enjoying your posts once again.. I sooo remember those days.. My baby is set to graduate next yr. and onto college he goes. I'll miss him but not the teenage drama to be sure.
