7.37am: Why is it so dark in this room? Why are these blinds all shut? Well fuck, it’s probably to hide how shitfaced this room is. Why do we have so many fucking toys? One day I’m going to raid this room when they’re asleep and throw out everything except for a solitary wooden toy per child because that’s educational or something. I should look that up. Shit, it’s Lilly’s party this weekend, I need to buy her present. Do we have wrapping paper? I should do gift tags like Nicola does on her gifts, she’s so damn clever. I’ll look for tags at Kmart today. Shit yes, I wanted to look for a juicer so I can make celery juice because Instagram tells me I should. Surely the K has juicers? Celery juice will be better than raisin toast, surely. I’ve probably already got artery disease or something. Is artery disease a thing? I should look that up. My eye hurts. Fuck, I also need to look up how whales breathe because I told Thud they breathe through their blowhole but I’m not 100% on that. He also asked how babies get out of the tummy and I just muttered ‘hole’ and ran away so now he probably thinks women have blowholes. I should also google how to explain that shitshow to him. I need to write a list of all the things I need to google, it’s getting out of hand. I need new foundation too. I put one in a shopping cart but did I check out? Add that to the list. Where’s my phone? Which child has stolen it now? Thud’s going to crack that code any day now. He’s methodical about it. I do find his commitment to a task impressive though. What time is it? They need to get dressed. I think his shoes are getting too small. I’ll have a look for shoes today as well. Is it cold enough for jackets today? Do they need sunscreen? Pop has a new freckle on her face, it’s all my fault. I don’t put enough sunscreen on her. She’s going to disintegrate like that kid who flew too close to the sun. What’s his name? I should look that up too. Where the fuck is my phone?
7.38am Where’s that screaming coming from?
