I am nearly shaking as I type this.
I have just had one of 'my parent's' call and blithely confess that she had forgotten to come bring her 7 month old for a visit as we had discussed two weeks ago before he starts here next week and she has just realised she is working on Monday! But I'll be okay to have them on Monday anyway won't I?
Them????? Oh yes, she would like me to have all three of her little boys (age 6 yr, 4 yr and 7 months) as she will be at work on Monday and school doesn't go back until Wednesday. Errrrr... no I won't actually and if you had come and seen me as we had agreed then you could have found all of this out in plenty of time to arrange something different. Instead you have left it until three o'clock on the Saturday afternoon before you start work on Monday!!! So don't you get snippy with me!
