Have you spotted the deliberate mistake on my blog yet? That's right, the header says August and it's still July. No I'm not having a 'senior moment' - I do realise that we still have a couple of days left of July. But I am going to be away from computer-land on 1 August and I figure that sooner is better than later, at least if I do it early at least it isn't likely to be forgotten!
It seems that this week fate is out there trying desperately to disrupt my plans and my 'to do' list isn't getting any shorter; every time I am ready to tick something off something else gets added to the bottom. In fact 'update blog header' wasn't even on my 'to do' list - it just suddenly sprang to mind!
I am firmly of the opinion that leaving children behind when you go away adds to the stress levels rather than reducing them, there is a lot of 'I hope he remembers to lock up properly when he goes out' and 'will he remember to turn the oven off after he finishes cooking dinner' because let's face it, boys are not the most reliable of species! However, I can tell by the way he rolls his eyes to the ceiling when I ask him questions that he has heard all my instructions before and isn't keen to hear them again.
Right - things to do, places to go and people to see. Must step away from the computer - NOW!
