Four 14 year olds in one room..kerthump…giggle, crash…snort giggle…..
I wait. More giggles.
Downstairs three 13 year olds are lying in the dark after playing twister and snap also laughing; it seems the more tired and overwrought they get the louder and more manic….
AJ was asleep in Leonnie’s bed and I knew I would be up again at 7am with him and cleaning the post evening debris and preparing the breakfast buffet table.
I inhaled. I got out of bed and wrapped myself in a throw rug and opened the door.
RIGHT!!! IF I get up one more time and ask you to be quiet, you will NEVER stay again. This will be the lAST sleepover EVER!!!
( I do AngryMum really well!!)
Downstairs quietened. And slept.
Geni whispered to her friends that I really mean it! And by 2ish peace reigned.
