The Good, The Bad, And The Ugly

Today was Noah's first morning at nursery. For a while now he's wanted to stay when he and Jo have dropped Susie off in the morning; and from this week he'll go too on Monday mornings. So today all four of us went along the road together. I'm very proud of my boy!

After dinner tonight I knocked a tub of cream out of the fridge, and all over the Dyson vacuum...

The kids didn't settle tonight (over-tired and over-excited...the downside of Day One at nursery). Jo and I were sat in the living room, catching breath before going out, when there was a crash from the attic, followed by silence. Jo headed up there to discover the three-drawer chest of drawers tipped over, a child stood at each side, both looking sheepish...turns out they'd decided it would be good to empty out the top drawer, both climb in it, and pretend they were going for a drive in their, we're talking about an Ikea pine drawer here, not a solid they-don't-make-'em-this-quality-any-more piece of furniture, and it clearly was never intended to store two small children (more's the pity). With a bit of distance, and given that neither of them were hurt, and having shared the tale with the friends we were with this evening, I'm just about ready to see the funny side (not to mention, hail the creative genius). But not quite.

How was your day?
