Joy of joys!
Just what we needed - another teenager in the house!
I couldn't get on to Blogger yesterday to post this for The Fixer's real birthday, but it didn't matter, because I was so busy getting the house ready for the arrival of her friends for a sleepover that I wouldn't have had time anyway.
At one point I thought of putting up a large sign bearing the legend:
THIS IS WHAT A HOUSE LOOKS LIKE
AFTER FIVE KIDS HAVE SYSTEMATICALLY WRECKED IT
...but I resisted the temptation.
And it looked okay in the end, actually.
The Father of This Lot was not best pleased at having to put up a new curtain rail in the bedroom at the exact time that he had arranged to meet some of his posse in a pub, but......who cares?
I have to admit the bowling session and food for a gang of girls today came to slightly more than I was expecting....but the FOTL's bank card came in handy for that, especially as I had relieved him of it before he went to watch the football at the Mare and Foal.
And so a good time was had by all - even me (who was up till five in the morning for two days running).
Happy Birthday for yesterday to our newest teenager, The Fixer.
I only hope that your father feels it was worth all the trouble.
Especially when he gets the bill.
