They Were Bored … Honest! 

If you read my post from last week about the bird that flew into my house and then proceeded to shit purple shit all over the place, you will understand my problem.

If not, here is a brief recap: there are 2 bushes off my verandah that have hear dark purple berries on them. 

The birds eat the berries then shit all over my verandah!

So this afternoon I had a brain wave and after my kids complained for the 100th time that they were bored, I tasked them with the super fun and important game of picking ALL the berries off the bushes! They thought this was a fabulous idea, and totally understood how they were helping mommy!


So after they were all ‘set’, I did what any mother in her right mind on a Friday afternoon would do: poured myself a glass of wine and took pictures of my genius idea of how to keep kids busy and have fun with nature.

Unfortunately by the time I finished writing up this hilarious post filled with inspiration, sarcasm and wine, they had given up with the ‘boring’ task and are now back on the iPad asking Siri random questions about such important things as “how many sleeps until Easter?”!

It was fun while it lasted!

Happy Friday people! Enjoy your weekend and don’t forget to check back in next week for more fun and inspiring ideas on how to keep your kids busy and get shit done whilst drinking wine and blogging!

You’re Welcome!

    1. haha … thanks. Maybe my in-laws weren’t as far off as I’d like to think when they referred to me as “the lazy queen”!

  1. What a lovely garden you have! How did you get the blueberry trees there? Do you grow them yourself? I want to do this but I’m scared I would kill all of the trees lol hey at least the girls were entertained for a little while! Thanks for sharing with #GlobalBlogging!

    1. They aren’t blueberries that you buy in the shops. My girls know NOT to eat them. And I can’t take credit for the garden. It was like that when we moved in, but thank you. I’d probably have killed it all by now to if I didn’t have a weekly garden service. lol

    1. Oops – sorry for the random link there! It was something I was looking at on fb – not quite sure how I managed to link it into my comment! Must stop messing about on multiple screens at once. Please feel free to delete that. And I meant to say thanks so much for joining us on #FridayFrolics (as opposed to what I apparently actually said, which was essentially ‘look how much Jeremy Corbyn’s son looks like Elijah Wood’! He does though! Apologies again!)
