The best laid plans !


Ah the ideas I had .... no school , no work , no sport ! A quiet weekend - a stitch here , a stitch there , maybe even a little reading . I had even toyed with the idea of giving my Janome a service and whipping up a few small items .

A picnic lunch for the family I thought and so my teenage son walked into town to get some fresh bread .

Just look at what he brought back home !!!! Seven more teenage boys !

There's always next weekend I suppose !

You should know that mums can never plan something that they would like to do by themselves!
You must have a happy home - your son wanting to bring all his friends there. Enjoy.

Wow they take their shoes off too. I remember when I always had to walk over shoes at the front door just to get in. With four kids of my own there was always lots of extras around.
