Daily Prompt – Joke
It’s Time for School Run
In the early morning sun, I shower and dress for the weather. T-shirt, shorts and flip flops and the faint spray of perfume. I go downstairs and prepare breakfast for the children. Cereal or toast is the choice this morning, neither is wanted as usual for my three darlings! The morning is busy and with a quick pace, the children arrive one after the other. One little girl arrives in leggings and a long sleeved top, coat and wellies. A wry smile appears on my face as I double check there are summer clothes in her bag.
The early morning playtime goes as normal with quiet activities as we wake up. Drawing, exploring and building with blocks. Checking the clock for school run time is never an organised task as I realise we should be leaving for school. In the rush we grab our shoes and don coats, pick up bags and lunch boxes.Outside and get into pairs and begin our walk to school … The heavens open …Rain again, what a joke!
Actually … The Joke is on me!
