Day 15: All you Need is Tea and Warm Socks

All you need is tea and warm socks

Harney & Sons Fine Tea Hot Cinnamon Spice HT Tin // After Earth DVD // Scandal Season One DVD // Donovan’s Dark Chocolate Covered Ginger // Revenge Season 2 DVD // Black Knight Licorice

Sometimes it just doesn’t work, the kids scream, work sucks, there is mess everywhere, the kids hated dinner, there and no matter how hard you try you cannot find any clean clothes. Some days you cannot control the kids no matter how hard you have practiced mind control. Jason Good sums it up perfectly in his 45 Reasons My Three Year Old Might be freaking out – the top 5

  1. Someone touched his knee
  2. He’s not allowed in the Oven
  3. His hair is heavy.
  4. A balloon he got six months ago is missing
  5. He jumped off the sofa and we weren’t watching.

You get the picture?

Sometimes when it has all gone to custard you’re best to give up and seek relief (after they’ve gone to bed) in tea and warm socks.  Get comfy on the couch with a cup of delicious Harney Hot Cinnamon Spice Tea; plonk a box of Black Knight Licorice on one side and a pouch of Donovan’s Chocolate Ginger on the other (these are adults only sweet treats). Then choose which DVD to get lost in this evening - ScandalRevenge or After Earth.
