    My hard week begun last weds at 05:00 when I droped the mrs off at term 4 Heathrow as she went away to visit our friends in Dubia

    I have been off work with my 2 kids all week Tamsin my little girl is 3 and Todd is 9 months(just on the 15/4)

    Well I got say it was not easy, half term and not much going on, on my own with 2 kids 24/7, great experince but very hard work!:faint:

    To top it off I have had builders in repointing my house, They are like Kids too, constant can we have a cuppa mate, can we use your loo
    Very dusty he took away 12 large bag of dust in the first day!

    My car looks like a ton of sand has been dropped on it,dust everywhere.

    So I'm back to work Thursday(for a well deserved rest) as My wife Katie arrives in the morning, I got to take my hat off to all the mums around, it is really hard work( I was going to swear but thought better of it) Fuk it it was really hard work..But I didn't have any help, the kids are better for it too..well I think so..not going to justify my last comment:icon_thumright:


    Well the builder hosed my car off again for me..and I couldn't cope so just washed it..it was nearly dark but I couldn't cope with looking at her that dirty(sad bastard)

    Hopefully the house is in order and everything is OK for final inspection in the morning when she arrives

    I'm knackered at tucking into a bottle of wine and a take away

    You appreciate hard work when you've been through it yourself.

    Well done to you! :icon_thumright:

    Some people don't realise how difficult it really is.

    My wife and I have a seven month-old son and since he was born, my opinion of single-parent families has changed completely. It's exhausting even for the two of us to look after him (and my missus is at home full-time).

    You've got to be a superhero to do it all by yourself. :respekt:

    Mate, you deserve a medal.

    I'm seeing some bird at the minute that's got a 13 month old girl and that's a full time job in itself.
    You can't put anything down anywhere without her trying to get at it, i've never been around kids before so i'm forever putting beers etc on the floor and having to rescue them from her dribbling clutches at the last minute!!!

    Hats of to ya mate. :hi:

    My little man will be 4 years old next week, and today was his first day at primary school. He looked really handsome and grown up in his uniform. I walked him to school and watched him in the classroom. I'm so proud of him, tear in my eye.

    Then I rushed off to work! (full-time).
