Anyone For Soup...

Today didn't get off to a great start. We were all pretty grumpy & nothing quite went to plan. Like when I went to take a shower & came out to find the kitchen looking like this...After a few deep breaths, I set Ryder up in the sunroom (still in his PJ's) with a can of cheap shaving cream, a pan, some food dye & some cooking utensils, making 'soup'. He was having a ball & I had a chance to tidy up the kitchen only to find 'soup' smeared all over the walls, doors & windows.




A few more deep breaths, a bit of swearing, some soapy water, a load of washing & all is well. Right now, they are both asleep & all is quiet, sigh.
