This post could also be called "What do you do all day? Part 2", because I know have the universal answer to that question - I drive.
I spend a lot of time every day in the car, a lot. You can't walk anywhere here really, apart from to your neighbours. So you drive, and since mostly it's me taking the kids to school etc, it means I drive a lot. Today more than other days though, because it has been a bit of a crazy day.
I just made it to school this morning when Anne called and said she couldn't get her car to start. As a good friend, I went to drop off my kids, then drove over to her house to pick her and her boys up to bring them to school, slightly late; and then we went for coffee with one of the other Mum's.
It was a short coffee break though, because they all of a sudden called from the school nurse's office and said I had to come and pick Lucas up, cause he had hurt himself in PE (he had fallen over and his foot was swollen, he has spent the rest of the day on the sofa with an ice pack...) - so back to school again, and then home with Lucas.
Then it was time to pick up Linnea (and Daniel, since Anne hadn't managed to fix her car just yet) but as I'm about to leave Anne calls again and says that now school had called her to pick Malthe up! (Because he was tired (?), but that's another story...)
So I had to take a detour, go pass Anne's to pick her up on the way, back to school (for the 4th time today!) to get the kids, then bring Anne and her little monsters back to theirs, and then home.
I was exhausted when I got home, sick of driving, and my back actually hurt. All this was before 12 o'clock, what a shitty morning!
(One of their friends later came and fixed the car for Anne, turned out the battery had no more to give, now it's working nicely again! Women and machines...)
