Punk borrowed a book from the Library a while back, it was called “Fortunately, unfortunately”, it was an amusing read, but when it happens in real life… it isn’t so funny.
So, today is my birthday;
Unfortunately, I woke up not feeling too hot.
Fortunately, I was well enough to go out still.
Unfortunately, I couldn’t fold the pram down to put it in the boot.
Fortunately I finally realised that Mr had messed with it, so I fixed that, & it folded.
Unfortunately, when everyone was finally in the car with all the supplies required for a day out with two kids, the car died at the bottom of the driveway.
Fortunately, it started again & I managed to creep to the servo.
Unfortunately, the website I’d referred to for how to get to the market gave me the wrong address.
Fortunately, I found the market anyway.
Unfortunately, the cupcake lady wasn’t at the market (the whole reason we were even there…).
Fortunately, there were other things to eat, including a large, hot, very necessary coffee.
Unfortunately, the coffee tasted like melted rubber.
Fortunately, there was a great park to run around in.
Unfortunately, it was FREEZING.
Fortunately, I’d looked up some vintage stores to check out.
Unfortunately, the GPS failed me again & it took ages to find the shops.
Fortunately, they were still open when we finally made it.
Unfortunately, there was nothing I wanted to buy.
Fortunately, I found a sushi place for Punk to have lunch.
Unfortunately, they didn’t have anything I wanted to eat.
Fortunately, we decided to go paint something at the Plaster Funhouse.
Unfortunately, Punk broke something as soon as we got in, even though I asked her not to touch anything.
Fortunately, she had fun painting & we have a lovely technicolour pony money box.
Unfortunately, I had to change Suspence’s STINKY nappy in the car park (in the pram). I always feel like such a bogan skank if I get caught out like that.
Fortunately, we headed off to the Mill Markets for a bit more retail therapy – I needed to buy SOMETHING…
Unfortunately, Can you believe it? Can you guess? I couldn’t find a single thing I wanted.
Fortunately, Punk was being beastly so I didn’t mind having to leave.
Unfortunately, the dear GPS sent me home on an entirely different – longer- route than it had used to get us there in the first place.
Fortunately, the kiddos fell asleep in the car.
Unfortunately, it started raining like a mo’fo.
Fortunately, I didn’t have to pull over & there were not “incidents”.
Unfortunately, Suspence woke up 40 minutes from home & cried for about 20 minutes.
Fortunately, he fell asleep again & was quiet the rest of the way.
Unfortunately, it was raining heavily again when we got home, so we were stuck in the car for a bit.
Fortunately, Mr was home to help me get everyone & everything inside again.
Unfortunately, I didn’t get my camera out all day, not even for the fortunate bits.
Fortunately, I’m heading to Sydney ALONE in THREE MORE SLEEPS, & that is going to rock, so help me.
