Kids. 
 

Took the eldest to Uni on Monday, middle kid is doing her GCSE’s this year and the youngest is in Year 6. 
 

Feels like it won’t be long until they’re all gone. In the meantime, I’ve got some fucking painting to do, splitting the girls into their own rooms.
 

Promised to have the first room done by the end of this week. I’m gonna be absolutely fucked.

Whaddayaknow? It’s fucking done. The lot of it. It was only the box room but at my pace I’d allocated two days for it in my head. 
 

Turdseye’s still got it, boys.

And now, I’m about to get twatted at FIFA by my ten year old daughter. She won’t let me go anyone else except Hartlepool and she keeps narrowly beating me three or four nil with a beefed up Liverpool team. 

We need a "The world of a woman (junior edition)" thread.

Only went and bought fast dry gloss, didn’t I. I’m able to put the teenager in her own room tonight, I’d told her Friday. This is dadding of the kind that I thought was behind me. 
 

The kid is absolutely delighted. She’s already fucked off to The Range with my bird’s mum and dad. 

Playing Golf does help to relieve the stress of your Dad painting your room the wrong colour!

Watching every commercial for a tacky household gadget – for things like unblocking drains – and thinking "hmmm, that sounds useful, might get one of those."

I’ve hung my dressing gown by the front door so I can take off my coat and put my dressing gown on, minimising the amount of time I’m exposed to the cold. 
 

Obviously I could put the heating on but my approach is also aimed at sticking it to the man. 

 

That's not a bad idea actually. Always fancied a quilted smoking jacket for lounging in.

I spend that much time in mine that the wife calls me Hugh Hefner.

None of the other trappings unfortunately at the Sir Roger Mansion.
