Why I Won’t Win ‘Mother of the Year’ This Year

29 Nov

Remember my panic on Friday night when I lost Spud?  Here’s yesterday:

Morning:  Spud goes to play football with his best mate.

Me: What time will you be back?

Spud: One, one-thirty.

Me: Okay, I’ll have your lunch ready.

Lunch Time: me says to Hub, Let’s go buy those things we want to buy (I’m paraphrasing: it’s too close to Christmas to be honest).

Lunch Time Plus (i.e. one-fifteen): my mobile rings.

Spud: Where are you?  I’m locked out.

Me: … … …Oops.

But the performance of the night for me came from Matt Cardle:
