It's a Hard Knock Life for Mum.......

L has been accepted for the school choir. A lovely thing you may think - but no. Not when your ears are being assaulted with various songs over and over and over. Last week it was one about pain and sorrow and miserable stuff that would have made you want to slit your wrists. This week it's 'It's a hard knock life' being played over and over on You Tube and a warbling wee voice singing along. I am thinking of turning into Miss Hannigan and just lounging on the sofa with a bottle of gin to block out the noise....

She got up this morning and decided that she would sing everything she said. Not great for the nerves at 7 am.

S has went down South this morning until Friday. The bloody cheek of him! Darned inconvenient considering L is doing a talk for school homework (with PowerPoint no less) and I am c**p with computers. I can only buy things, send emails, and look at Face book.  I had to get a crash course on how to convert photos and make a presentation last night. The s**t is going to hit the fan big time.  Our council has this wonderful online system called 'Glow' which means the kids can do homework in the bad weather and get in touch with their teachers via email if necessary. Fine if the ruddy password to get on works. The talk is due to be emailed in by tomorrow and L's password is still not working. I said we would send it on a memory stick if the email didn't work,  to which I was told 'no Mum, Mrs P says we could give the school computer a virus'. No such bloody luck. 

The only thing 'Glowing' is my face, with pent up sodding frustration.....

And if that's not bad enough I have said she can have a sleepover for her birthday next week.  Must be off my bleeding head.....

All together now, 'It's a hard knock liiiife for Muuum.....'
