The house is my haven yet sometimes it induces crazy lady behaviour when I can't look at plastic toys any longer. So I thought sod it let's do a shopping centre trip alone and see how we go. Sounds simple enough but I also braved LUNCH with these small people. The vision of a sandwich throwing toddler while I tend to a screaming baby are usually enough to put me off. But I was pleasantly surprised. Sure my son mostly ate a scone for lunch, with bits of his sandwich also dipped in jam but he also had a 'chat' with so many lovely old folk who as we know are drawn to babies like bees to honey. The littlest one had all his milk without a fuss and we even managed some present buying. So instead of talking myself out of other solo ventures I say bring it on! Look out for my next adventure that will no doubt include a leaky nappy and projectile vomit, that's how these things usually roll!
