Last night was the first meeting of our reading group (I'm the one with the purple butterfly top!). I can't believe it actually happened. I am usually rubbish at organising things but last night following my drunken idea a couple of months ago, 8 mums met to discuss the book we had all ben reading for the last month 'We need to talk about Kevin' by Lionel Shriver. A nice cheery tale of a teenage boy who kills his father, sister and schoolmates witha crossbow! It was great fun (the meeting not the book). We actually managed to have a really good discussion about the book and our feelings on the mother/son relationship in it and it felt really good to be able to have an opinion on something and to be able to voice it without feeling like an idiot (although the 4 large glasses of wine did help!).
I didn't get home til 1am. Apprently Sam woke up every half hour during the night (we think he's teething again) but I didn't hear a thing! Jon had to deal with it all while I merrily snored away. I had my punishment today though as I felt really hungover all day but had to go present shopping for Jons Birthday.
Thinking the book should have been called 'Lets Talk about Isabella' at the moment as my lovely gorgeous well behaved daughter has turned into a monster since hitting 4. Please tell me this is a phase??? Shes become really aggresive and keeps hitting us whenever she doesn't get her own way. Any ideas anyone? Whatever we do she just says 'I don't care'. Driving us nuts as shes usually so well behaved.
Should have done the lottery this week I think as I have won another giveaway. Can't believe my luck!
