I shut the door to go off to school and realised I had locked myself out. I went to the keybox and saw that it was empty. I had taken the spare key out a few weeks ago and not replaced it! I couldn't get hold of my husband. Luckily as it was big man's nativity, a friend looked after the boys and then made us lunch on a very cold day.
After school, I thought I would take the boys to the local soft play to have a run around and tea. By this time Daddy would be home from his meeting a few hours away with his spare key. Then I heard a Tanoy call for me. I rushed to the front desk where big man was in floods of tears. I panicked. What was wrong? "I'm really hungry Mummy!"
Not only had big man put a call out because he was a bit peckish, he had put a call out infront of his brother - the fridge raider! I am now expecting regular calls being put out whenever we go out from middle man who's decided he fancies a biscuit or a packet of crisps!
We ordered food and as all the spaghetti bolognase had sold out - I had chicken burger, chips and mayo - and I didn't care! Then I had a call from my husband. He was on his way. But he also told me something that I wished I had know 8 hours earlier.
"You do know that you have a back door key on your keyring, don't you!?!"
Middle man then tried to walk out of the soft play centre with another giant sized Rudolph because it looked like the one his Aunt had bought him!
So all in all, not the best day, but big man was the cutest and happiest sheep I have ever seen.
