Here is a little insight into life with Guitar Hero and Fly Boy! Last Friday FB asked me if I could make a birthday cake for someone at school for Monday.
Apparently the convention is that the kids take it in turns taking in cakes for their peers and then someone else takes in a cake for them when it is their birthday. Of course I said yes! That meant I would have to drive him to school as a cake would not survive the bus trip! PLAN A.
Then Guitar Hero told me he needed to take his amp (the biggest heaviest guitar amp known to man!) to school Monday which would mean I would have to drive him to school - and no, they may be twins, but they do not go to the same school as of this year. That is another whole story! According to GH there would not be enough amps for all the guitarists performing in school chapel this morning without his amp. (Why am I not convinced!)
So began a period of sometimes heated negotiations in order to work out how to make it all happen as simply as possible.
FB's solution - make GH use one of the school amps! and drive FB!
GH's solution - make FB take the cake on the bus and drive GH - tell him to suck it up - ahhh lovely!
My solution - drive GH to school, FB can catch the bus and I will drive the cake to school and leave it with Student Services. No big deal and do able!!! PLAN B
Then, at 11pm last night GH came to see me (an hour and a half after he was meant to be in bed) to tell me that he had decided not to take his amp to school so I confirmed he didn't need a lift after all! I guess he must have had a recount of the number of amps at school and miraculously there were actually going to be enough after all!
Of course he decides this for reasons unknown but certainly not to make things easier for me or to fit in with his brother!
So, this morning I told FB I would be driving him to school .....PLAN C ....that is until GH realised that he did need alift after all as he could possibly carry his guitar, folder, school bag and laptop bag on the bus by himself! So we were back to plan PLAN B!
But the best part - the absolute HIT of HITS, TOP OF THE POPS, WORLD BEATING reason why you have gotta love living with teens.......is........wait for it!
After dropping GH and guitar and so on at school at 8am this morning I got a call from FB (you know there is a problem if he calls me instead of texting me!) and says -
oh this is good!
Can you please bring the cake in on Wednesday - I am not due to have it in till then.
Now you can laugh!
So, the cake that I made last night and got up early to ice this morning is sitting uneaten by my two teenagers so it looks like I will give it away tomorrow. Freeze it you say? Thought of that - but there just isn't enough room in the freezer! Tomorrow night I will be making another one. And guess what - it appears one of the boys in his group gluten intolerant so I need to make a gluten free cake - thank goodness for google - I found a recipe.
Some times you just got to have a sense of humour! (and a little chocolate never hurt either!)
Help! Can someone please tell me why I keep getting Composition Editor popping up on my screen all the time in blogger! It is so annoying and it usually over text i am trying to read. It seems to pop up every time I move the cursor!
I also made chocolate chip muffins today thinking that my boys would enjoy them for afternoon tea - one is like a stomach on legs which i actually like, but did he want the muffins? No! Just about everything else but no muffins! Guess those can be frozen for lunch boxes thank goodness!
Nearly forgot - the recipe for the muffins came from here. They look yummy, they smell yummy, but I haven't tasted any yet so hopefully they taste yummy too!
Till next time..........happy stitching!
