One of those days

It’s been one of those days today.

Husband worked and I was awoken by the sound of tiny bells. Thinking maybe I had slept the year away and perhaps it was Christmas already, and they were tinkling reindeer bells, maybe I should get up. Or just not drink so much gin the night before.

Instead of reindeer, it was just Hugo. He was bouncing down the hallway with a Lindt bunny bell on his neck. Seems Poss thought she would test the theory of whether our long held suspicions of Hugo being related to the Easter bunny were real and apparently a bell and ribbon is required for this.

To say he was unimpressed is probably an understatement. And showed that by scratching her. Right across her privates (I don’t even know what is suitable to call that area here… anyway you get where I mean), deep enough to draw blood.

And really, the day didn’t get much better from there.

We ended up going out for an early dinner, thinking a change of scenery would do us good. It finished with me threatening to leave her and husband in the restaurant, as they loudly bickered over who had more chips with their meal and then proceeded to kick each under the table.

So I am finishing the day with this song*. Because it’s my new favourite. As well as Ben & Jerry’s ice-cream and twitter. Because, well, just because.

How was your Saturday?


*Song is ‘Royals’ by Lorde. She doesn’t have her own video clip yet, so this one will have to do. But you can find her here.

  1. Ah the joys of parenting.

    Heidi is still up babbling to herself, decompressing from her week.

  2. Firstly… OMG the poor darl… I can just imagine it. If anything like mine, she would have taken it personally and not understood the scratch. Then of course, poor mum!

    Kicking under the table… You missed your opportunity to give them both a deft kick and go undetected lol

  3. I’d have kicked them back, ordered a gin to go and played that song on repeat for ever. It’s my current favourite too.

    Here’s to toady being kick/scratch free… and full of Lorde.

  4. I really am confused by what you mean with privates ? I mean I get that you might not want to attract the vile googlers, but..uhm..? Hope all is better now, including the outraged bunny x
