Katie had her birthday party today. She’d invited seven friends over for a swim at the local pool, and then a sleepover. When we arrived at the pool, Tom announced that he wasn’t staying to help me as he was going to meet up with my Dad for lunch instead. He went, leaving me to look after seven nine-year-olds, some of which can’t swim, and Annie too as he didn’t want to take her with him as he said she’d only cry. Thankfully, Josh agreed to help me. After swimming, the kids all came back to our house for food and a sleepover. Tom said there was no point him hanging around getting in the way and that he might as well let me get on with it and he went to the pub for the entire evening instead.
