Ten years ago, the great bean bag incident of 2007.
A decade on now and I can see the funny side. Just.
But if I tell you that polystyrene balls become quite static and do not vacuum easily, you might begin to recognise how traumatic this day was and how many hours of cleaning this mess actually took to sort.…
I might have cried a little on that day. I may have shouted a little too. I might have even reached a rock bottom and thought I could not possibly go on (these two were INSANELY hard work as toddlers).
But I was not so full of tears and anger that it stopped me taking the snap; I guess I knew it might raise a smile a decade or so into the future. A fond laugh even. As it has today.
