It was the usual hectic Thursday, and yet, we still managed to squeeze in a game of monopoly before dinner. Frankly, I agreed to play because I just couldn’t stand the nagging from both kids. So I said yes to the board game while the lamb was cooking in the oven for exactly 30 minutes. Don’t get me wrong. I love board games. Just not during the ‘witching hours’ like today. We didn’t get to finish the game, we stopped when the oven timer beeped to the disappointment of Ms 4 (who’s winning) and to the delight of Mr 8 (who’s losing). The five minutes resting time for the lamb was just the time they needed to pack everything and clean the table ready for dinner.
