You've finished a busy day at work, where seven different projects have been discussed and countless issues have been addressed. You're on your way to pick up child number one from netball training and you're already wondering what's for dinner. Then you sit in the car with said child, as she knocks over some homework in the back seat and you answer more emails on your phone, waiting for child number two who eventually finishes soccer training an hour later. Then you get a phone call from child number three, who, thankfully, is old enough to catch the bus home alone, to tell you that the washing machine has leaked water all over the floor. Then your husband rings and says he's been caught up at work and won't be home til close to midnight.
