Not so organised mum

Not so organised mum

This morning I thought I was so organised.  My son had cross country before school so I had to drop him off early, get my daughter to school for 8.40am then get in to town for a business meeting at 9.30am.  All very doable (or so I, thought).

Son was dropped off at 8.20am, daughter was dropped off at 8.25am and I headed back to the house to pick up the stuff I needed for the meeting.  It was all going so well.  Then, I spotted the note on the breakfast bar, and it all went to rats!  “P7B Engineering Activity Day” it read, “packed lunch and small cardboard box required.”   Aargghh!!!  I rushed around the house like a loon, pulled together a packed lunch, found a shoe box and headed back to the school, phoning them on the way to say I was sorry but I had spotted it was Engineering Day and would be with them in 5 minutes with the required items.

When I got to school however, I was met by my son’s teacher who too had been put in to a mild state of panic thanks to my earlier phone call but was now standing laughing his head off.  I was a week out!  Engineering Day is in fact next week and all my frantic efforts were in vain.

Oh, and cross country wasn’t even on this morning!!

  1. Fab – blog. I can totally resonate with this….my child turned up for cross county too. Engineering day wasn’t even on the radar – it is now! Cheers! X
