All in a days work...

About the time I was cleaning Spaghetti off the dog for the second time I wondered is it worth all this craziness to have my own business.
My day started around 4am woken to the sound of coughing and spluttering. No 1 was moved to my bed before she could wake the twins and I tired to get a bit more sleep with a 3 year old taking up 80% of the bed.
