#Mum Stories 1
Do you ever have those days where shit just goes wrong? That was me tonight. Im Beck mum of 2, wife to one.
Today Saturday, I had driven 5 hours to visit my mum for lunch for her birthday (as good daughters do) and back home to Melb. It was a big day, it was freezing back in Melbourne and all I felt like was a bath (that we hadn’t used in over a year) and to snuggle up in a nice warm dressing gown (except I don’t have a dressing gown).
To fix this problem Miss 11 and I left the boys for a quick trip to Kmart to purchase that nice warm dressing gown, while there I figured I get me one of those bath caddies that all the kmart insta mums are raving about – you know the ones with the tablet holder and the wine glass holder..
The shopping went well, but I was so tired, I just wanted to get home and set my caddy up – glass of Kahlua, face mask and a good book in my bath when the kids go to bed..
Could it be that simple – NO! Got home, husband had just turned his first game of fortnite on (you know, because all the cool kids are playing fortnite) grabbed the caddy out of the box, took it into the bathroom, only to realize my bath goes straight to the tiles. If I were to fill the caddy with the goods, it would have ended in the bath as it could not go over the side of the bath to secure it.. Sad but I moved on. I went to fill the bath, because naturally that would be the next step. Except I tuned the tap (that hasn’t been turned on in about year) on, for the tap to then come off in my hand… My HAND!! Water spraying everywhere, I screamed for my husband; who replied with – whats your problem I’m playing fortnite!! Thankfully the kids came running out to see me covering the tap with water gushing they ran out to tell husband.. Who went and turned the mains off so he could fix it..
It was my job to run outside an turn the water main back on, as soon as I stepped out side I let out a really big sneeze and was stopped in my tracks by the tinkle that followed down my leg inside my jeans ( Im not sure if I blame childbirth from 8 years ago or nearly turning forty soon!)
Stuff the bath,the book, the face mask and the Kahlua.
I had a hot shower and got into my nice snugly new dressing gown and thought I really needed to share my shitty night, it might make someone out there smile
