I know this will sound strange but since Saturday I have had a manic week, chipped car windscreens, jaunts to Clarks for Joshua’s new shoes, shopping, washing, ironing, hockey matches, pre-teen hormones and washing up and too many nappy changes to mention!
That all being said yesterday I almost took out the front axle on my car from the biggest pothole I had ever seen on the way back home and I could have cried. For the remainder of the journey the car was pulling left so badly if felt like I was battling with bungee rope to keep the car were I was steering it!
This morning after a particularly tiresome draining battle with my pre hormonal daughter and her appalling tone of voice I was on the verge of breaking.
I pulled into the Kwik Fit car park and went into reception, was told it would be a few minutes but then they will get straight on to the cars tracking and balancing.
After a 45 minute wait in a room full of people, Joshua had lost his patience and was beginning to test mine! I tried everything and my resolve was wearing through I was sat with my son who was now wanting to destroy the posters and leaflets in the reception area. There were several people who were scowling and looking down their noses at me and I wanted to cry.
The final straw happened when Joshua’s patience ran out completely and he threw himself over the oil covered floor and through an almighty tantrum.
Ok I hear you saying … that’s not fun … however instead of collecting him of the floor and hiding outside with him till the tantrum passed, I laughed, I laughed so hard I was crying. This is why this is a fun photo.. it made me laugh even though I have been so super stressed.
