So on Friday morning we woke the children nice and early as we wanted to leave by 8.30am , we nearly made it, we left at 8.50am . There was the usual rush of, I’ve forgotten this or I need that, cd’s for the car, books to read , dolls to take.
But eventually we set off, we decided to take turns in who chose the music to listen to, well everybody except dad , as we all agreed no one likes his music..poor dad, so instead he had to choose from the music already available in the pile of cd’s we had brought ,(James Morrison, The Script, Ed Sheeran, Green Day et al ) not from the many lying about his car.
It was a very uneventful journey down I’m pleased to say. No fights or arguments and no getting lost.
We had an itinerary , Friday was junior school visit, house visit , secondary school visit. That simple ..
No never that simple with our children.
The visit to Saltersgate Junior School I thought went well, the children behaved and enjoyed looking around the classrooms and meeting staff and pupils.
After a brief lunch in the car , as by this time it was raining …heavily , we set off to view our new home (to be ) …it started well, we met the vendors, had a look around then it happened, Luke decided to go into full show off mood, and the all singing , dancing stroppy “I want my own way” child emerged . AAARRRRGGGHHHH
By the time we left , I had a headache, I didn’t know whether to laugh or cry , and the children all got a piece of my mind !!!! I was ready to drive home , anyway after that we decided only dad and eldest son would go and have a look around his new school to be.
Great I was happy to stay in the car with the other 2 , what I wasn’t happy with was hubby locking us in for some strange reason and taking the keys !!!!
So I couldn’t put the radio on , I couldn’t open a window , we were trapped , then Megan decided she needed the toilet HELP where was my husband lol
Anyway I opened the door to let some fresh air in , and to show my youngest daughter that there was nowhere to go for the toilet, as she kept telling me over and over she needed “to go ” , well I opened the door , the alarm went off, so we just had to sit in the school car park and wait for it to go off .
Hubby was next to get a piece of my mind when he got back with a very happy son , who at the moment seems very happy with his school.
So then it was off to have a look around Doncaster : The Dome , The shopping centre and to eat.
I think I’ll leave the night in the travel lodge to my next blog
