I don't want them to grow up too quickly and miss what being young and carefree is all about.
I want them to enjoy it all. But being their mom, I want to be part of their enjoyment too...So far so good.

26 Minutes Gone

I have just lost 26 minutes of my life!

The Chick has asked for concert tickets to see Drake and others at Hyde Park this summer and I was under very strict instructions to buy two tickets on line at exactly 9 am or die.

 Easier said then done. After finding the freaking website, I had to register and password myself to get in then the clock starts ticking down with each page I was on. Pressure to do it right!!!! 
 I found the right date, found the right price then had to Ticketmaster the stupid things. Clock still ticking down. 'Account holder already at this email address, please confirm password'. Which one of my family has opened a Ticketmaster account???
 Having re-registered on that with a new password, my time runs out on the Drake tickets and I have to start all over! 
 It is now 21 minutes past the hour and if I blow this, a screaming teenager will bite my fingers off for being so useless on a keyboard and computer illiterate. No pressure then. I can visualise her holding her phone under her desk at school watching for my text. I am swearing at the website as I type furiously. Dink, dink, dink and confirm payment. 
 Seven emails later,ping, ping,ping into my inbox and... I still have all my fingers.

Happy Chick confirmation
