The wife pointed out in one of her comments to the entry called “Wife on her way home!” that I’d missed out some of the story of Friday’s events.
For a start the eldest child was to go to a Guides Sleepover at 6:30 p.m., but because of one thing and another… such as the youngest being in her skating lesson at the same time… and the eldest not having packed *anything* to take with her such as clothes etc we eventually arrived a little late… two hours late. She was supposed to eat there as well but I actually forgot to ask her when she came back if she *had* eaten. Ah well… bit late now. 🙂
Since we had one of the grand kids with us we asked if he was hungry and when he said yes we asked what he’d like. He said “fish and chips”. He would. For the *next* hour and a half we scoured around every fish shop in western Sydney trying to find one open… unsuccessfully I might add… so we took them to the Golden Spider for a burger instead. And discovered on the way that nobody else had eaten either so they *all* had McDonald’s burgers! Ewww.
Saturday, as I pointed out was fairly uneventful all in all… except that we took the youngest to a party at her friends… a day early 🙂
We have no idea how we managed to mix up the days but instead of being 20 mins late we were actually 23½ hours early… which was good. Sort of. 🙂
