First Week Of Our Easter Fortnight........I

Ok...........so we have just come to the end of our first week of our Easter holidays..... our schools are off for a fortnight, I always have to work the first week but have the second week off :) - this second week I should of been flying to the states, with it being spring, but alas, it didnt turn out as planned, oh well - well I have the week off from minding but obviously NOT off from my from mob....and all their mates and their bands will be here and girlfriends, so not the break I really had in mind, sigh.... I aint felt 100% kosher this week but Ive muddled through.......

Many of me nippers I dont have cos I mainly mind for school teachers :) and of course they get the time off school hence I dont have their kids, but I still get paid...... also one of me maties is in Florida so some days Ive had some of her minded mob :)

Anyways this is gonna be a boring post today, just Twaddle about everyday stuff here....... no funny stories to tell, just life really........ and Im knackered this weekend, so Im glad that next week I do not have to wake by an alarm :)

So......... Monday saw me at Petersfield lake........ being School holidays it was well busy by lunchtime, so Im glad he went early, there is a play area there which if truth be known I dont actually like....... that to me is not what taking ya nippers to the lake is all about, if ya wanted to just go play on play equipment ya might as well just go to the local park......... the nippers were a tad disappointed that we frogmarched them away from the equipment and off for a walk around the lake........

I suppose one funny thing did happen actually....... I was in me car and me matie was in front in her car when we are queuing at the roundabout up in town, on the way to Petersfield, the traffic was real busy and moving slow cos of road works on the roundabout....... you have to realise that me and me matie are a couple of loons when together........ so we are queuing when Jacob opens a packet of chocolate crisps....... they are the same size as pringles but just made of chocolate with bits of orange in....... hehehehe - the windows of the cars were all open cos it was well hot....... so I bibbed ann with me horn and jacob held up the chocolate crisps and he was laffing........ cos I knew Ann didnt have any in her car....... well with that she stops dead in the car while the traffic moves off and opens her car door and walks back to my car and reaches through the window of me car and snatches the box off of Jacob and turns to me and just says BITCH lol - all the traffic was at a stand still and horns were going off everywhere LMFAO.......... it was just soooooo funny, so I get out me car and walk up to hers and snatch them back, I suppose you had to be there.... 2 cars behind us was a cop car, which I didnt see until I was walking back to my car, the 2 coppers were in there just shaking their heads and laffing lol

Sprite - Jacob - Its Jon - Flapper - Just Jack - Smidge - Smudge - Aimie - Pod

As you can see by the rosie cheeks and the unsmiling faces, we had knackered them out around the lake ......

So here we have a few of my crew with my Jacob in the beige hoody and me maties girl Aimie sitting next to him in blue with the scarf - they have been best friends since they was about 4, they are both 13 now.... both Jacob and Aimie are great with the nippers, they know they reap the benefits, and to be honest, since Ive had these nippers since they were all babies they are just like brothers and sisters.... :)

After our long walk around the lake we relented and let the kids have 30 minutes in the play park.....

ok which of these kids do you think ended up in the lake up to their knees in duck sludge?

Which one of these darlings do you think wandered off of the picnic blanket and climbed the 9 foot slide on their own, and when Ann said to me wheres just jack I said casually, oh up the top of the slide, with which we both leapt up and ran. hobbled to save him lmfao...... cos of me dodgy knee I made Ann climb up the actual slide to rescue just jack LMFAO it was just so funny..... I almost wet meself laffing......

Which one of these kids climbed one of the trees and got stuck up the top for 20 minutes cos I refused to climb up and help them down?

Which one of these kids, poo'd their nappy so much that it shot out the top of its nappy and all over its clothes without a change of clothes with me?

Which one of these kids threw its ice-cream at one of the others and hit them on the head with it (great shot) cos they called them a not nice name?

Which one of these kids did I pick up and put on the top of me car and in through the sunroof (which was luckily open) cos I had locked me keys in?

So you see........ our days out NEVER go smoothly lol...... but I wouldnt have them any other way :)

Boring Twaddle today - sorry feeling tired....

You have the patience of a saint. I could not, would not, do your job. Ever. Your parents are flat assed lucky and I am thrilled that you get paid vacation. :)

It's no wonder you're tired! I don't know how you do it, Marmite. I'm sitting here listening to mine argue (we're halfway through vacation) and it's all I can do to keep myself from beginning to say "be quiet" much too often. I think the stress is starting to get to me. I have a headache, a stiff back, an upset stomach and my allergies are acting up. I LOVE school. You know, because my kids need to be educated and all:-)

I'm glad you get paid for vacation, too. Little bonuses now and again wouldn't hurt, either.

I posted about my vacation circus, too. I don't really like holidays all too much, but I'm really trying to look at the bright side this time.

~((refugee))~ Lynn - I aint had a day off from work, except for when I was poorly, since crimbo, and I dont ever get a break weekends etc cos Im a 24/7 parent, I could actually do with going away on me own somewhere LOL cos next week most certainly wont feel like a break..... hey send you mob over to me :) I'll do you a special rate LOL xxxxx

Do you know, I use to have a brain before kids LOL thinking I should of kept me good job with adults lmfao xxxx

If you can ever get away, Marm, I still have an empty house here in Florida where you could stay. Careful, though. My mother lives just down the street and she would notice that someone is there. And any tenant of mine would need saving, don't you know. She might knock on the door and give you a bible. Bring the squirrels.

Shit is right! I missed that dang chicken! I think I hit the light though. I guess that works?

A GURKHA and a few Coors Lights later and I have to admit, the chicken is growing on me.

I loved this post Mel. The picture of the nippers was so cute. I am worriend about doing all that walking, around the lake, with your bum knee. Take it easy, would ya?

Loved the slide and tree climbing stories...

hang in there (((((Mel)))))

The Fool said...

Nice post, Marmie. I spent my first six years in teaching in the K-garden. I was the "token male" kindergarten teacher of that era. Thank you for reminding me why I teacher writing to middle-schoolers these days. Although, I will admit, there are days in the middle-school that feel like a flashback to the garden.

As JBelle sez, you're a saint, Marmie....runnin' with the pack. You just keep those nippers chuggin' around the lakes and off that "equipment."

Have a wonderful Sunday...and enjoy the break.
