In my rush to blog, I was remiss in my introductions, so here goes. I am a Brit, as they say here, (actually English) who's lived in the States since 1990. My 3 offspring are almost 15, 12, and 4. Yes, that's right, 4! We live in Chicago, which is neither as dangerous or glamorous as depicted in TV documentaries.
I won't be writing too much about the kids in case they get wind of it and start demanding payment. (I will of course, be moaning about the ball and chain on a regular basis.) Nor will my blog reveal too much of a personal or salacious nature as, in a moment of sheer thoughtlessness, I told my mother about it AND gave her the web address! I am fairly confident she won't bother figuring out how to leave comments, but I will nonetheless be watching closely for the cold-sweat inducing opening line, "By the way...", which usually means I'm in deep doo-doo!
The other one was "If you think you can...
a)live in this house and keep your room like that
b)live in this house and speak to me like that
c) live in this house and treat it like a hotel,
d) all of the above...
Not quite sure how that particular threat ended but I know it wasn't as simple as "You've got another think coming!"
