We've all done it, haven't we?

I'm back, I arrived safely in spite of the M6 trying to drown me (honestly, I couldn't even see the lines on the motorway, let alone any other cars the rain was that insistent). The soft play centre we stopped at was fantastic, and about a mile from the last one we visited. Lovely staff, tea with real milk and good home made food. The journey was fine and both children were extremely well behaved. The girl slept almost the whole time we were in the car and the portable DVD player really is brilliant and keeps my son entertained for a good two hours (more TV than he'd normally watch in a day I hasten to add).

I returned home to find an immaculate house (thank you husband), but no milk in the fridge, or food in the house and quite a few piles of washing! I only discovered that we had no milk when I had the unpacked the car, settled two children, washed and sterilised bottles, boiled the kettle had the tea ready and waiting for milk. So, I did what any one else would do, and used baby milk powder. 

I have to admit that it wasn't bad. I'm not going to make a habit of drinking it though!
