The lights are on but will anyone ever be home

Today we had an easy day, we were considering going to Bluewater to check out the High School Musical bus but instead decided to take it easy and then venture out to the park. As usual I ended up carrying home the kids toys, I seriously don't learn my lesson here. Until the next time when I hope to be stronger to their powers of persuasion. Anyway the day was going well until approximately 6pm when it when so pear shaped you could smell pear. Anyway it started when my girls sister came around and the dog left a present for her in the front room. That was only the start though and I received a phone call from my children's mother. Now she had given me no indication that the plan would deviate from her picking them up. With me not having a car it would be a lengthy procedure and a long bus journey endured.

Well her car was in the garage getting repaired and her attitude was in need of repair as well as she flew into one with the usual outbursts. It's great hearing about how bad of a parent I am and the lack of time I have for my children. Weren't really interested in hearing this though as I was trying to find a solution for getting them picked up as there was no alternative and the bus would have left me with a four hour round trip. Wouldn't have minded had I been told earlier but at 6pm it wasn't fair. Her reasons were weak and that she was relaxing with her fella amongst other things. See me and my partner would love a chance to have a relax as they have every weekend to do as they please but yet I am the bad one.

Introducing to the arena the hunk of the high roads 'Furious' Faz Motar as her fella comes on the phone. I wasn't sure whether he was putting on a pretend voice or trying to put me in my place either way it wasn't well rehearsed. Anyway the whole thing was pathetic the exchange and how we came across. Not sure what their side of the argument was and why he started talking to me about money. Also I didn't get why they found it so funny as they were loving like they were doing something naughty. Anyway the children picked up on it and it made me feel like a proper failure. Especially as my daughter told me that she would be just ignoring them both when she got there and my boy said that he didn't like the guy anyway. It's all about being the adult here and none of us took on that role. Note to everyone here if one fails then all fail in this instance. Luckily their aunt picked them up, hopefully getting a car will be sorted as soon as possible!!!
