Odds on

It's the Head of Senior Management's birthday today . Happy birthday Annie !







(and the son ? The one who texted his mother and woke her to that brain addled slightly panicked state that only an early morning phone call can conjure up, at 3.34 AM to tell her he was still awake and would therefore be requiring a sleep-in and to please pass that info onto the father , so that said father didn't accidentally wake him ? ...That son ? Chances of him making it to his next birthday are getting slimmer by the day)

  1. Did you 'forget' to pass that message on?

  2. Hurrah for Annie... good to see a Turtle in a hat, not enough Turtle's wear hats any more...!

    To which the answer to the son is - are you seriously trying to commit suicide the hard way? Cos if not, you're doing a great impression of someone who is!

    I suggest setting his alarm clock for two o'clock in the morning. And telling him there IS such a thing as Justifiable Revenge.

  3. Great hat - mmm perhaps you could show that hat to your son at 7.30am and again at 8.30 and 9.30 and ....
    I'm sure he would love it.

  4. ahahahahah that is hilarious!!! my dad would murder us!! i would by him a note pad and stick it to his bedroom door that way each night he can leave a note as to what time he would like to be woken at.....or option two - be woken up by his dad-tell him he would like a sleep in and go back asleep....OR option three- leave a txt on fathers phone so when he sees it in the morning he will not wake him

  5. Just so you are aware, any retaliative action you choose to take against The Son is entirely defendable in any court of law.

    (Happy birthday Annie!)

  6. Hahahahahaha... I suggest a combination of several methods of revenge - alarm at 0 dark'o'clock and then waking him several times until such time as he would have got up from sleep-in anyway.

  9. I think I might have forgotten to pass on that message. At least my boys have learned to put a note on their bedroom doors in that situation.

  10. I hope you rang his mobile at 7am (although I like the alarm clock suggestion too)!

  11. The son needs a 7am wake up call followed by a "what? Did you call me at 3am? I must have slept through that! Better get up and CLEAN YOUR ROOM!!"

  14. That boy is lucky to be alive! I suggest you do to him what my cousins did to me on my 21st birthday; put an alarm clock (one of the really old-fashioned LOUD ones) set it for hideously-early-o'clock, put it in a cake tin and hid it under my bed - talk about the early morning wake-up call! Lovely to see you all yesterday.

  20. ├žan beat that....daughter rings in the middle of the night on new year's eve to say the taxi had not shown up...got up.....faffed around trying to find keys etc....drove over to pick her up...nowhere to be seen....drove home and lo and behold there she was...taxi arrived...oh right that must have been the one I passed on the way there!

  21. I'd say hourly texts or phone calls throughout the night tonight and then a 7am wake up call

  22. I hope you are planning some adequate revenge, something early and painful. I like the idea of the alarm clock in the tin hidden somewhere in his room.

  23. One day you will remember that text message and laugh.

  24. You could always try sticking pins in the doll...if nothing else it could ease your pain!
