So Ernie currently looks like a pilot with a headset fixed on his head talking at the equivalent of volume 10 on Alexa whilst having some “break-time” on Fortnite.
I swore I would not give in and let him loose on the PS4 during all this, but I fell at the first lockdown hurdle. So much so, and so immersed in his game he now even travels to the bathroom with the headset still on his head, shouting commands at his friends whilst unsuccessfully aiming his pee in to the loo!
Then the screams begin from my 11 year old. Prior to the mayhem unfolding she was filming another addictive routine for TikTok, but now she’s either stood in the pee, sat in the pee or just noticed the pee surrounding the toilet and has an apocalyptic meltdown; all hell breaks loose. 😱
A massive arguement followed by a full blown boxing match occurs between the two of them. The dog buggars off upstairs to get away from all the noise. Ernie swears the piss was not his, however, there’s only two penis’ in this household and my money is on the youngest.
At last, and I’m not even sure how, calm is restored, (probably through another bribe, but I can’t be sure). TikTok routines resume upstairs and the battle on Fortnite and heated discussion on the best ‘skin’ convenes.
I look at the clock and it’s already 16.30pm. Where has the day gone? We still have maths and art to finish today 😱 For now I have to return to the kitchen and become part of the catering team for the evening meal. My teacher role will have to recommence tomorrow…
How long is lockdown for again?
