Just Passing Through

On the weekend, my nephew celebrated his seventh birthday. A little party with kids and their parents, lots of noise and food and fun, and PsychoMother of course.

As I was leaving to return home, PsychoMother’s parting shot was: “Oh yes, you’re always just passing through, aren’t you.”

Being from PM, this was not a positive comment in any way.

6.30am Sat: Struggle out of bed in freezing cold and take Miss April for a walk.

7.00am: Quickly feed Miss April and Princewilly,¬†¬†toss bag of clothes, nephew’s present and Miss April in car, start FOUR HOUR journey to sister’s house (KingWilly still cosy in royal bed in castle).

11.30am: Arrive at party, have fun, get a bit plastered. Hang out with sister and PM all day, talk late into night, go to bed.

5.00am Sunday: Woken by nephew jumping on bed, hang out with sister and PM all day.

4.00pm Sunday: Announce that I will head off home on FOUR HOUR drive, lovely weekend, thanks.
