8.20am – Take JJ to school, drop him off, get to the tram and catch the tram to work, have meetings, have coffee with someone who’s leaving, have lunch, more work work work.
5pm – get ready to go home and am just about ready to walk out the door. Am asked to do something urgent for the boss boss boss’s PA who’s spitting chips and we don’t want them upset do we? Explain the need to be at school to pick up JJ by a certain time and get told I can book a car to take me there so I book a car.
5.10pm – finish the urgent work I have to do and I could have caught a tram but hang around anyway because I don’t want to cancel the car or bother with the tram now.
5.25pm – leave work and wait a bit for the car, and hop in the car.
5.50pm – get to the school, pick up JJ and go home. Heat up canned spaghetti for JJ and I eat some pate on biscuits.
6.10pm – hop in our car to go and pick up dad to go to the hospital to visit mum who had a little operation.
6.45pm – get to the hospital and mum’s feeling pretty awful and doesn’t feel like talking.
6.55pm – nurse comes into the room, kicks us out so she can get one of the tubes out of mum.
7.15pm – go back to see mum for a bit before we leave. JJ has behaved pretty well which I’m pleased with.
7.30pm – get to the carpark, pay $6 (bloody ripoff), drop dad off at his accommodation.
8.10pm – get home, get JJ changed, teeth cleaned, toiletted and bedded. I feed the dog, put on a load of washing, while organising JJ.
8.25pm – kiss JJ goodnight and go and pour myself a drink. Stay up for a bit and watch something I taped a couple of nights ago and when finished try to avoid the footy show while flicking around the stations to see what’s on.
9.45pm – go to bed. Am surprised I managed to stay up this long. Read for about two minutes then turn out the light and go to sleep.
