NB - hats off. You do need a sense of humour in trying circumstances. Hope daughter gets things sorted satisfactorily.
Clari - the cure for the kitchen table problem is a large bin bag or box into which you sweep all his crud and then place by the bins. If he wants to keep it he has to sort it and stash it. Even small boys can learn that tables are for food, chats over drinks, maybe a bit of crafting but not junk storage.
Sorry your back is playing up and hope it eases. Have you tried taking your jalopy thru a car wash? They do work quite well and take less time than the average hand wash. You could offer to take his new jalopy to save him time to spend with you..........
Trying chicken breasts with orange and rosemary for dinner. Rice or buttery boiled potatoes and steamed green cabbage. No garlic or chili for a change.
