My blog post for this week was pencilled in as "How To Make Paper". Yes I am having a go at making paper but it takes longer than two weeks to get it right, especially when you only have a couple of days a week to practise. Then it takes forever to take photo's. Then they need editing; re-sizing; cropping. Then things don't go to plan. I was going to do some on Sunday but a quick trip into town took all day, bye bye Sunday. So I don't have a post about making paper today. I will have but it's now in the future somewhere.
My next bright idea is to put the badge of the linky I am going to link up with on my blog post all ready, because with Bear I don't always get time in the week. So post written, badge on, publish. Great, Linky doesn't start until Tuesday and it's Sunday, oh never mind I'll just have to find five minutes on Tuesday.
So now it's Tuesday and seven in the morning and I'm trying to link up to #abitofeverything hosted by the lovely Agent Spitback and Anxious Dragon (fab names too!) when I see it doesn't go live for another three hours, oh and there's a lovely new badge. It is a fantastic new badge but I've done mine!
OK don't panic. It will only take a minute to remove the old badge and put the new one on. Damn, what have I deleted? Why is there no undo button. I've just removed my signature and follow me bits. OK back to compose put it all back in, back to HTML (whatever that is, please don't tell me I'd only forget) Then the new badge looking great. OK hit update. That's it no time left to do anything else.
A few hours later....I get five minutes put my link on. I'm number 23 how can all those people be so organised? I was going to be in the first few, never mind. Now I've to comment on a few posts. Oh this looks good, and this one, and this.
"Whah whah" *sound of toddler wanting to get up* Nope Bear won't nap so I'll have to read them later. Off to the park instead.
|Off to the park|
Take a few photos for Mummy oh and one for instagram. No time to post it now I'll do it in a minute.
Back home time for lunch, then a nap, Bear not me Lol. Quick tidy up, chat to Mummy via email. Whats that a cry? Yep Bears awake. An hour already I don't believe it. Bears not happy, red cheeks and everything, I mean everything is upsetting him.
Want Grandad? Shake of the head No! Want Nanny? No! Want biscuit? No! Oh well I'll let him sit on my lap while I just finish this tweet on the desktop. What's he pressed? Why is it a blue screen (not the blue screen of death, don't worry) with 'locked' written on it. Just try clicking, yep back in. How did he get that window up? Or that? The child is a genius.
I know, I'll let him write on word. Mini meltdown whilst I take control. There you go....type away. What's that? OMG he's pressed a F key! I'll just turn off the mouse and keyboard and let him play. Ahhh peace for a minute.
That was my third mistake of the day.
I don't let him into the study with the computer because it's not child friendly so why did I think it a good idea today?
The other two mistakes?
First. I gave him a sippy cup with water in it. He didn't want to drink it but started pouring the water into a beaker he had been playing with. I just watched, how clever is he pouring that into the beaker. Suddenly I realised my mistake. He'll think it's a game, his mother will kill me. Take it off him. I'll just pretend I never let him do it.
Second mistake. We were looking out the window at the cars and he was pulling the cord on the blind so I showed him how it opened and closed. Why? I don't know another moment of madness.
Bear goes home.
I find the photo's that I took for Instagram. Is it too late to say having great fun in the park? I look out the window at the complete blackness. No I'll just post it anyway, it's only five hours later.

So yet again all you mummy's and daddy's that do this full time. Well Done. Respect from a part time, disorganised Granny.
