This morning was a bit of a whirlwind rush, I decided to have a bit of a lie in, only ten minutes but when I was finally dragged out of bed by my three year old (neither of us are morning people) I realised I couldn't leave the house without a shower as my hair was stuck to my head! Then Eva didn't want to wear the clothes I had picked out for her, I really wish she hadn't developed her own sense of style at such a young age.
Once breakfast, shower and dressing and
drying were all done (within about 12 minutes) we ventured to the car
which was full of frost. I strapped Eva into her seat and starting to
de-ice the car with some pump action de-icer. Once defrosted I got in
the car, to be informed by Eva that she had forgotten her mo-mo (a manky
blanket, she loves and drags everywhere with her - through everything).
So my only option was to go back inside and try to hunt down the Mo-mo,
which sounds simple but as the police have recently warned there have
been some car crime in my road so I couldn't leave the car running. I
locked Eva in the car ran back in the house, where I proceeded to run
around like a headless chicken in search of the mo-mo, of course I
couldn't find it as she also likes to hide her beloved scrap of mank, so
I had to get her a freshly laundered one. I ran back down the stairs to
find that that car had now completely frozen over again, damn you pump
action de-icer!!! I had no choice but to start the de-icing process all over again and
passed Eva the new mo-mo, which she cried about but luckily gave up
after a two minute holler!
We got to playschool a few minutes late but they're pretty okay about that (just as well).
returned home to crack on with some Christmas orders and it felt like a
different morning altogether, the sun was coming up and has made all
the frostiness look magical, I made tea and put on my favourite 6 music
on the radio. When I sat down at my desk I spotted these awesome spiders
webs on the balcony. I'm not a massive fan of spiders but these are
beautiful, I took a few minutes to just sit and appreciate them,
sometimes just a few minutes out, 'taking in' the scenery just sets me
up for the day ahead.
