Number of ‘out of School’ lessons/clubs I have forgotten to pay for – Three

Number of ‘out of School’ lessons/clubs I forgot started back on Monday – One (Swimming. I kind of forgot it was Monday. 😣)

Number of times one of the girls has said “You haven’t forgotten I’m starting that new club tonight”m m and I have – Two πŸ™„

Number of School lunches I forgot to order – Nine (packed lunches it is then!)

Number of times I’ve given the wrong sandwich to the wrong child – One (Why can’t they all just eat the same things?!)

Number of snack pots lost – SIX (How???!!! Do the girls eat them too?? 😧)

Number of times I’ve put the 5yr old’s School socks on, to find they are odd – Two πŸ™„

Number of times I’ve said “I really need to get you girls some tights for School” and haven’t – Four (on tomorrow’s ‘to do’ list πŸ˜’)

Number of times the girls have said “I don’t want to go to School” – 22

Number of times I have said “You have to go to School or Mummy will go to Prison” – 22

Number of times I have muttered “I hate School mornings” – about once every five minutes of asking the girls to “get ready for School!”, so, A LOT!

Just 7 more weeks to go….. 😭
