I am tired...... have been burning the midnight oil a bit lately and its all starting to take its toll(am not as young as i used to be!!).
I think i am a really boring individual. I read everyones clever posts and feel really inadequate. Maybe its just that i dont have a life!! Maybe because i am so trapped in being a referee during the school holidays - i dont know. I am feeling really run down at the moment. I really am a sensitive soul and the constant bickering and picking really get me down. Hey all you mums of older children, aside from locking the children in different cupboards, how do you deal with all the conflict? I get them out, I keep them busy, I do pretty much everything i can to keep the peace but they just seem to continually bicker.
What did i do wrong as other peoples kids just seem to mostly get on, or is this just an illusion. Hmm, no Mother of the Year awards for me..... maybe i should just go and sit in a corner and rock!!
Sorry for being so negative - the end of the holidays always do this for me!! Roll on Monday (although i am on bloody canteen, drew the short straw!!)
Big long sigh.........................
