Its agony, I feel like I have been skewed with a sword. My whole body is pulsing with pain…
The morning started so well. Both he who helped create them and I held our breath at 5.45am when we heard the click of the twins door ease open. We lay like statues as twin boys elephant style footsteps padded across the landing. We didn’t move a muscle as we heard the flush signify the start of his return journey. There was a terrifying pause outside our door and I genuinely thought my nights sleep over but then a miracle occurred and he returned to his own room and apparently returned to slumber.
The real morning began at 7.10am. The blue birds came in and gently pulled back the bed sheets, he who helped create them greeted me with a kiss, kindly ignoring my humming breath. The children all dressed themselves without any major fallings out; we had a slight hiccup when twin boy thought twin girl had stolen his socks but all was happily rectified when BB was discovered to be the true perpetrator of the crime as she was found trying to hide the evidence in her nappy.
It was as if we had all gone to bed in our own house and had woken up as the Walton’s.
But it’s true; all good things must come to an end; and only moments after treating my family to a rousing morning of Morning has Broken I was writhing on the floor; tears piercing at my eyes and yelps of pain falling from my lips.
We were ready to leave, each child was by the door, coat on, book bag, packed lunch, and water bottle in hand.
I dashed upstairs to perfume myself and pop on my shoes.
I didn’t see it.
How I missed it I don’t know; it was bright yellow and a good inch wide.
It was on its back, helpless to move itself.
My foot was bare.
I sprung from the top step, a smile upon my face, my foot unknowingly careering towards its yellow victim.
I landed, I screamed, I am not ashamed to admit I cried.
I fecking hate lego…
