So you finally get out of the door after the manic getting ready for school nightmare that just happened.I won’t bore you with that though,my post is about what happens next…
As we start off,the neighbourhood’s 4623 cats get pointed out. “Oh look Mum there’s another cat over there” *grits teeth* “yes darling there’s a bit of a shortage of those around here isn’t there?So glad you spotted another one“
Then it’s onto Rock Henge,where the kids have to stand at the top shouting “I’m the King of the castle” and I shout back “Get down you…might fall in dog poo” No idea where it came from?Maybe some drunk students got bored one night!
Onto the weir whatchamacallit which inevitably makes one of the kids (or me) want to wee.Despite me asking them a bazillion,gazillion times before we left the house.I think they cleaned it just for me to take this pic though – it’s usually full of Maccy D’s wrappers and bits of bike!
Then we check the trees for squirrels,the best I’ve ever seen in those trees is a squirrel fighting with 2 magpies.He was giving them what for and shaking his little fist-paw whilst they did that horrible cackle thing they do.Of course I didn’t encourage him by shouting “smack them on the head with your nuts” (in my head obvs- there’s little ears present)
We then negotiate some busy roads – I didn’t take any pics of those I didn’t fancy getting in a fight with a Landrover.Just before we get to school we all have to stop and laugh at this:
Can’t for the life of me think why though 😉
And that’s our school run!I refuse to take the car due to the parking wars and you can just see the delights I’d miss out on 🙂
What’s your school run like?
