Today I was pottering on the computer & at about 2:00pm I decided to sit on the lounge for a few minutes with Almond eyes before we had to leave to pick Chestnut Cheeks up from school.
I closed my eyes, sort of drifted off but was awake because I had half an ear on AE. She kept asking me to tie her hair up.
I thought I should check my watch as it felt like about 1/2 an hour since I sat down. Yep 2:30! Rightio time to go & pick CC up from school.
So we headed off, not really noticing the lack of traffic on the roads.... I pulled into the side street which CC's prep class is on & flicked my eyes down at the car clock.... 3:40pm it read... take 2... 3:40 did that say?? Take 3.... yes, quick check of the watch... yep 3:40pm!!!!!!!!!!!!!
S H I T!!!! Now I dont normally swear, but heck my poor little almost 5 year old boy had been waiting FOURTY minutes for me to come!!!!!!!!!!
I chucked a quick U-y & darted around to the front of the school and parked in front of the office. It was then that I noticed the lack of cars, children & the lollipop lady at the crossing *GULP*...
I ripped AE out of her chair & carried her (OUCH) whilst running (OUCH) to the office.
There was Chestnut Cheeks smiling his biggest smile at me, totally relieved to see that I had come!
I straight away said sorry about 1000 times to him & promised it would NEVER happen again.
I have since made his favourite for dinner... lasagne. He is stoked with that.
I honestly have NO idea how that happened I swear the clock said 2:30pm when I left home. Somehow I lost an hour somwhere.....??????????????????? Spooky!!
How bad do I feel.........................REALLY bad!!!!! Thank goodness children are so forgiving!
