Off to the real world

Am in a bit of a rush this morning as I have to go into London for a meeting. That might not sound like a big deal, but when you work at home and have no adult company for weeks on end, it comes as a bit of a suprise that there's a real world out there. What's more, people wear clothes other than jeans or pyjamas in that world.

So I have to go rummage through my cupboard and see if I have anything remotely suitable to wear. And I might even need to resort to wearing make up. Shock.

Plus I need to get two small boys dressed and there's going to be the inevitable drama about not wanting to go to nursery in their bid to make their mother feel guilty.

I don't know why I find going to London so stressful but I do. I invariably either end up at my destination ludicrously early or embarrassingly late. Both of which can be blamed entirely on public transport and my less than brilliant interpretation of an A-Z.

So that's all I have time for today except for this completed unrelated point, which I'm hoping someone from a pharmaceutical company will read:

Dear sirs

It's all very well having childproof lids on bottles of Medised. But if at 2am the parent can't get the lid off which results in the child crying and waking up his brother and the mother having to wake the father to remove said lid, I feel it has crossed the threshold and become adult-proof too. Perhaps you could rethink the design?

Must run...

I'm with you on the Medised thing, I also wish that the liquid was a bit thicker, as dosing up kids in semi darkness generally involves changing pajamas, bedding and usually cleaning the carpet too!

so true lazy. It needs to have far more gloop factor. In its defence, it is less obvious than calpol for staining clothes.
