I've not seen the children for a couple of days.
Any readers that also happen to work for the NHS, and are also accountants, will know that it's a pretty busy week this week. The accounts for the period ending 31st March have to be submitted by 9am tomorrow. Yes, you read that correctly. Tomorrow. Just the 3 week period is allowed in which to pull a full set of accounts together. And so, as a result, the children went on a special adventure to Grandma's house for 3 nights to enable me to work long days.
They loved it of course.
And when I arrived home tonight they ran to me shouting; "Mummy mummy! Yeay, mummy's home...." and so on. It brings a lump to the throat.
Until the youngest followed up with: "Can I have some Easter Egg Chocolate now, mummy?".
I did laugh. Priorities eh?!
