Discovering that the A-Team is on Netflix over the weekend. Nothing else matters when you're awash in a sea of 80s cheese

Also, we might be on the verge of selling my mum's house if the arsholing agent doesn't scare our only offer in over a year away by trying to squeeze an extra £1,500 out of them. It may surprise them that I don't give the slightest shit about their commission.

Mr Dreamy is away for a couple of days, so last night the kids and I had a Thai takeaway and binge watched Buffy.

After eating and half way through the first episode, Middlechild had to go to bed with a migraine (this didn't make me smile, honest guv)

This morning, he came down and I told him he was obviously allergic to Thai so could never, ever have it again and I would have to eat all his next time.

He shook his head, went away for a little while and just came back with a smug grin.

"I've had Thai before and never had a problem - but I've never seen Buffy... so obviously it was all the cheese in that. Cheese is well known for migraine issues'...

Earlier yesterday, I went through to the study where Middlechild and Youngestchild are set up with their pcs, to remind youngest to take his pills. (He's on antibiotics) One of their friends on skype heard and asked why he was on tablets. Middlechild said 'oh it's for his erectile dysfunction'.
Obviously I corrected him and said he wasn't on tablets for that.

Youngest is not happy

Thanks, all. It's been difficult juggling study and childcare for the past three years, but I think it should be worthwhile. Quite a career change (and pay cut to boot!), but so rewarding.
