Somebody at the little man's school stupidly decided that instead of giving the kids homework every week they'd do a "rainbow" of homework each half term...which means every half term he has seven pieces of homework to do, colouring in a bit of the rainbow for each one.
Well, with Alf's reluctance to do any homework at all (he even hates colouring in the flipping rainbow!)... and my sheer fatigue at nagging him all the time, what this actually means is a complete nightmare the day before handing-in-day where we do all the nagging, all the moaning, all the crying and, eventually, all the homework in one night.
That night was tonight.
I'll just say one thing:
"Pass me the wine!"
