It is just too easy to lie in bed and tell the children to go and put the TV on downstairs when they’ve woken up at the crack of dawn for the umpteenth time in a row!! But we must resist!!. We must say ‘NO’ to the one-eyed baby sitter living downstairs and rise to the challenge of being ready for the off !! So my latest is to get the pens and paper ready the night before and put them on the kitchen table. Then when the wake-up calls come through at whatever unearthly time it is, I can suggest going downstairs to do a wonderful picture for daddy and then I can roll over and go back to sleep just the same!! Result!!! No brain-numbing, advert-crammed cartoons and a more creative and thoughtful pursuit!!
