    I survived.

    Long winded, I suggest you skip reading and go straight to commenting and derailing I'm writing purely for my own entertainment.

    Yesterday my girls had their first sleepover, just 3 friends to see how it goes we've known these kids since they were about 4-5 now 10-11.

    Preparations started last weekend when we went out and bought some halloween decorations and candy as well as some things for games such as tinned whipped cream etc, then spent a healthy chunk of yesterday afternoon tidying up and making the house respectable so the girls wouldn't be embarrassed (we're always clean just not anal about tidy, this is a family home not a museum).
    Decided the 3 guests could all fit on the double air mattress, halfway through blowing it up the batteries gave out, takes 4x D guess which batteries I don't stock?........ Almost everything we buy takes AA or AAA......FUUUUUCCKKKKK, oh well out with the foot pump.

    2 came home with us after dance class, the other joined shortly after so by 17:30 we had 5 hyped up and excited 10-11yr olds. I threw them each a sleeping bag grabbed a beer from the fridge and the original Survivors boxset and retreated to the bedroom, leaving wifey to their tender mercies (it was her idea after all).

    Abby Grants just found her husband dead and I hear a loud squeal and giggle from the girls bedroom, I poked my head out to discover Friend 1 had, had a negligent discharge with the silly string. I took advantage of the dvd being paused to go grab another beer.

    1900hrs the dogs are going apeshit, I went downstairs to discover pizza had arrived, I grabbed mine and the stuffed garlic bread along with another beer and retreated back upstairs, wife follows me up with her burger and we enjoyed 10minutes of quiet whilst everyone was filling their faces.

    2000hrs I hear a knocking on the bedroom door, I'd obviously dozed off (split shift don't agree with me) upon answering 5 lil urchins faces covered in whipped cream come trundling in. They'd been bobbing in plates full of whipped cream for sour worms, the kids were followed in by the dogs both of whom had a paper plate in their mouths and set about licking them clean. I go grab another beer.

    Sometime shortly after 2100hrs I go downstairs to find my wife grinning like a maniac and all 5 girls giving each other glitter tattoo's, after rejecting numerous offers to glitter up my tattoo's and making the appropriate encouraging noises in regards to how pretty their tattoo's were I grabbed another beer and slunk back out the way.

    2200hrs wifes joins me in bed, she's left them too it.

    0000hrs wife drops off daughter 2 in our bed she wasn't feeling very well (been ill off school all week) she then goes downstairs to sleep on the sofa.

    0330 I'm woken up by voices from the girls bedroom, throw some shorts on pop my head in to discover 3 guests wide awake because daughter 1 is snoring like a herd of hungry hippo's. Wife comes up to see whats going on, we move the airbed and 3 guests to the sittingroom, put a dvd on for them, daughter number 2 back into her own bed and by 0400 we're snuggling back up and trying to get back to s

    0500 wifey calls down and tells girls to get some shuteye.

    0645 I wake up, go downstairs to make a cuppa tea and retreat t the bathroom for mantime.

    0730 I take the dogs out for a walk, I'm awake but tired, too tired to sleep so why not?

    0800 it starts raining

    1000hrs I get home, guest 3 has been picked up only have to deliver 1&2 back to their respective homes.

    1125hrs all guests delivered home, we'd stopped off at the shops on the way home and grabbed some dumping mix and more beer.

    by 1200hrs I'd already downed my first beer tidied the girls bedroom and pulled the sittingroom straight, wifey is getting the ingredients into the slow cooker for a stew later tonight.

    Since then I've caught up on all the shows I'd recorded during the week, drank several more beers and caught up on the washing, it's still pissing it down outside so today was only every going to be a catch up and relax house day.

          Would you consider your relationship with alcohol as healthy or unhealthy?
          This sig didn't cost me any money.

              All things in moderation................. sometimes, actually I don't drink a lot as nobody died, my kids know who I am and I can go 2 sometimes 3hrs without drinking I'd say quite healthy.

                Good to hear, you can thank America for the invention of beer, and also the wheel, and the invention of wells to water the hops and yeast for the beer and the cantelope and also those little perfume things you can plug into the walls when it gets smelly. It was a honor to help my fellow breathren on the other side of the pond.

                All in all I am glad that the kiddos had a good time and you had the beer to ensure that.

                      when you say tinned whipped cream, you mean they whip it before they can it? or do you mean aerosolized canned cream?

                      because if you poms are too lazy to whip your own cream.....

                              Well I'm not going to put the effort of whipping cream by hand just for the kids to stick their faces in scouring for sour worms, it's not as if we eat that shit.

                              Dumplings....

                              Yeah got me there but in our defence it's 75p for the packet and after last night we're having a lazy day
