Day 253 - Tuesday 9th September

"Today is your day! Your mountain is waiting. So... get on your way." - Dr. Seuss

Argh back to the heavy going prompts!
Today it felt like I had to climb a mountain to get Zoe out of the door. She just seems to know the right time to play up which, of course, is totally the wrong time for everyone else. All the kids are back to school and the bridge on my route to work is still closed so the traffic is heaving.
From the moment she woke this morning, she was naughty – she didn’t want to wear what I had got out for her and she had to choose her own knickers and she had to have a different t-shirt and then she wouldn’t put on any socks – so it took about 20 minutes to get dressed. Then she wouldn’t have her hair brushed or put on any shoes. The result was that we were 5 minutes late leaving which added an additional 25 minutes on to my journey time as the traffic was so heavy!

This is Zoe having a tantrum in the bath tonight
