I have been ticked off. Girlchild is currently working fairly random hours, if Sainsburys require some overtime she will step up and I admire her for this, although I have noticed that immediate financial gain seems to be a far higher motivation than the fact exam revision will enhance results
All this overtime makes her attendance at mealtimes variable, so I have been doing food for us and allowing her to snackerel when she gets home. Theoretically not a problem, although I question the nutritional value of anything she makes herself. Sainsburys value pack flavoured noodles and 2 rolo puddings would not receive the approval of the food Tsar.
Anyway, this evening she got in at about 10.30pm.
"What can I have for supper Mum ?"
"Didn't you get anything at work ?"
"No, I couldn't see anything I fancied"
(This is a fairly large Sainsburys, my heart sank)
"Eeermm what would you like ?"
"I don't know"
"Well, there's some chicken, or I could do scrambled egg, an omelette ?"
"No, you know I don't like eggs"
"There are some fishcakes in the freezer"
"No, don't feel like that"
I'm becoming slightly tetchy by now
"Toast, cereal, bacon sandwich, cheesy toast, pasta with smoked salmon ?"
"Well, what would you like ?"
"I don't know..........why don't you ever buy something I want ?"
"I don't know GC, I am perplexed that I cannot find things you would enjoy, when you don't know what they are yourself........................"
There was a tut and a flounce and she was gone.
I am a bad mother, I have allowed my psychic powers to fall by the wayside. I blame Twitter.
