Fuck I’m a bit burned and bollocks I have missed killer Corrie twice now. If you are currently child free but are considering having children, you need to seriously consider whether you can live without your soaps. Nearly 10 years ago, I gave birth for the first time. I knew and was prepared for life never being the same but I really hadn’t thought though how it would affect my ability to get my soap fix.
I didn’t really mind Eastenders but I thought that I’d never be able to live without Coronation street.
“So who is he that’s got Ken Barlow?”
“I’m fucked if I know”
“So the bad guy was grooming Bethany Platt all along?”
“Must have been”
And then gentle snoring.
What a lightweight my husband is I pondered. It’s only 9.06 I thought as I nodded off myself.
When my oldest little shit was about 12 months old, I remember standing over her cot, bent at an awkward angle with one hand on her back. If I took my hand off her back, she would sit up hopefully for a cuddle. When she realised that she really wasn’t going to get anywhere because mummy had read every fucking parenting manual going, she would finally settle.I would then sit on the floor in the dark until she actually fell asleep. I wouldn’t look at her so as not to give her false hope and eventually after 8 or 9 false starts, I would finally exit her nursery. If I dared try to escape on my hands and knees when she wasn’t quite asleep, she would scream her indignation and stand up in the cot again. From memory this would take on a good evening, an hour but more likely going towards two. I would listen to the Coronation street theme tune as it started and then with dismay as it came on for the end. Who knew that nearly 10 years later, I’d still be sat missing Coronation street whilst sitting with first a 5 year old and then a 7 year old who need mummy to get to sleep.
10 years of missing Coronation street. I was so happy when it was on at 9.00 this week. I’m so rock n roll that 9.00 is now too late for me to be awake for.
Can anybody tell me what’s going on please? Is somebody going to die in quicksand? Who is with Ken?
I can’t do a picture of my outfit as I’m too sun burned but it is epic.
Chin chin and up your bum fashion forward bitches from Totes Towers.
