Aargh, I’m such an idiot!!
After a lovely weekend at Jervis Bay, Minnie the Minx and I drove back to Sydney last night… fuming!
Which is when this golden rule for beach house weekends struck me - and hard.
Never make plans for a Monday morning.
They mean you have to come home.
And why on earth would we have come home?
The sky was blue, the sun was hot, the waves were rippling, boogie board-perfect.
There was milk in the fridge, ice cream in the freezer.
School on a Monday morning is quite unnecessary when you’re six.
But this eejit mother has a 9am appointment at the school of Giant Teen. Then one with the doctor at 11.30am.
There are three other school happenings this week and too much other stuff. So we didn’t cancel and stay.
We came home, reluctantly and with lashings of extra whinging.
So, it’s in a spirit of harumphing that I wish you well for the week.
Fingers crossed I remember my own golden rule next time we head down south.
Jeez, I love that beach house and the gorgeous glories of Jervis Bay!
Do you fancy cancelling your normal Monday this week?
Yours in distress
