Monday, Monday

Screaming Seagull Face
It would appear that Pudding & Pie didn’t get the memo about today being a bank holiday. In fact I would go so far as to say they got the memo, ripped it into tiny pieces and then promptly ate it. I do kinda blame our neighbour who slammed the door so hard at 6.30am that it rattled through every house in the row. I guess they figured that as they had to be up for work on the bank holiday then the rest of us should suffer too, after all misery loves company right? If that is the case I ย am quite tempted to go over and ring their door bell at 5am every morning until the end of time, But I digress…

So Pudding HQ is awake, even Mr Pudding couldn’t sleep through the noise this morning! Before leaping out of bed to deal with the situations in the room next door we take 2 minutes to hold conversation, uninterrupted:

Mr P: ‘Morning’

Me: ‘Clearly..’

(Snuggle in for a quick cuddle, making sure no one gets a mouthful of morning breath)

*Noise Level Rising*

(Sounds of Pie swipping a ‘wand’ through the air shouting ‘expelliarmus’, this later turns out to be an orange felt tip with no lid….)

Me: ‘We need a plan for today…’

Mr P: ‘I thought we could wander to the pub, have a few ciders, maybe play some pool….’

Me: ‘Oh that sounds great, we could grab some lunch, sit in the garden. Oooh and I quite fancy a game of darts’

*Noise starting to reach crescendo*

Me: Are you making coffee or dealing with wee?

Mr P: I will make coffee….

Me: Good choice, nobody would ever choose wee…

(Lay still for a minute listening to noise)

Me: Remember that pub in Whitechapel with the beer garden?

Mr P: The one where The Krays shot Jack the Hat?

Me: Ha ha Jack the Hat, only in the East End would somebody be called Jack the Hat! What was that pub called?

Mr P: The Blind Beggar – we had our first kiss there…

*wistful glances*

(Noise reaches defcon 4… With accompanying air raid siren howl)

Me: I miss London

*collective sigh*

The day has begun, two tired and slightly disgruntled parents slide out of bed…

Hope everyone enjoys their bank holiday!!

  1. Haha this sounds just like our house!! Have a great bank holiday, whatever it is you decide to do! It’s throwing down here so looks like another PJ day! Gahhh!! #MarvMondays

    1. Eurgh tell me about it the weather is just rubbish at the mo – we ventured in to town ad brought garden furniture which I constructed in the rain – don’t ask me why!! Thanks for commenting and hope you survived PJ day x

  2. aww hope you have a gorgeous bank holiday – bloody neighbours – if it’s not the kids waking you !! I love London too … go grab a date weekend there soon … leave the chaos for just a little while #bigpinklink

    1. Funny you should say that – we are off there next weekend for Bryan Adams at the O2 – first weekend away since Pudding! Can’t wait for a lie in and a hot coffee ๐Ÿ™‚ Thanks for commenting x

  3. Oh bless you! I was woken with a fuzzy prosecco head and a baby who was mildly confused at our impromptu sleepover at his auntie’s and why his grandad was shouting about trying to find the weather on his iPhone. Now having a barbecue with my side of the family and got to start drinking again! Oh, bank holidays. #bigpinklink

    1. Sounds like you are having an ace long weekend – hope the weather held out for the BBQ. Thanks for commenting x

  4. The never ending story of parenthood! I hope you have a great bank holiday (not back holiday in Portugal) and hopefully you and hubby can take some time away together soon. So cute you have morning cuddles… We definitely don’t the creaming in out household just kills the moment ๐Ÿ˜‰ #bigpinklink

    1. We just block out the screams for 2 minutes – otherwise we would never get a cuddle! It may not be bank holiday but I bet you saw a little sunshine ๐Ÿ™‚ Thanks for commenting x

  5. Isn’t that always the way, when you want a lie in you are woken at the crack of dawn. Hope the weather has treated you well, it’s been a wet gloomy one for us, so trapped inside with kids going crazy.

    1. Ah this weather is getting too much now – here an earth has spring gone? Fingers crossed it improves for the bank holiday at the end of the month. Thanks for commenting x

  6. Brilliant! So well written! I would definitely ring your neighbours doorbell at 5am every morning-would totally serve them right!! Your house sounds just like ours every morning… Nobody really wants to deal with anything, and me and my husband would just like an uninterrupted cuddle, also avoiding each other’s death breath!! I like London, but have never lived there. I’m sure if I’d ever lived there I’d never have wanted to leave-such an amazing city!!
    I’ve not had a great bank holiday Monday-I’ve been mostly holding a bowl under my profusely vomiting child’s mouth, and wading through the mountain of washing all of the projectile spills have caused…!!

    1. Oh this sounds awful – poor you! Hope little one is feeling a bit better this evening ๐Ÿ™ Our day did improve and the little darlings are now safely tucked up in bed ready for us to have a glass of vino and some slow cooked lamb! Thanks for commenting x

  7. Sounds familiar, except we woke up with the little munchkin in bed with us and he’d been kicking me and pushing me out of my own bed all night. Fab! Thanks for linking up to #MarvMondays! Kaye xo

    1. My husband won’t let me smuggle our two into the bed for that very reason! Hope you enjoyed the bank holiday and thanks for hosting x

  8. Fabulous! I do wonder where you get the time and energy to be so profound and so spot-on with your writing, but I’m glad you did anyway! #bigpinklink

    1. AH thank you that is a really lovely comment – I am glad you enjoy reading my posts, mostly I just think I am wittering on! Thanks for commenting x

  9. Neighbours have a lot to answer for. Our house is very close to flats and we often have the opposite problem of being woken up at night by people have parties on their balconies so we always get our own back in the morning when we unleash Youngest and Oldest on them at 7am with their recorders! I hope you have had a fab day today ๐Ÿ™‚ x

    1. argh recorders – I dread that…. But great neighbour punishment, must note that down somewhere for future reference. Thanks for commenting chick x

    1. I often dream of pubs – then realise that even if I went I would probably only have a coke as I would need to go pick up the kids from where ever I had left them! Thanks for hosting x
