What  a  novel  idea 

Sitting  in  the  kitchen  she finally  decided  to  try  something novel and new. A different  approach  maybe  it  would  work. Walking  to  the  bottom of  the stairs  she  cleared  her throat and  called out in a calm and pleasant  voice.” It is  seven o’clock  I shall be  leaving  here at seven thirty. Breakfast is  ready.”

She  returned  to the kitchen  finished  her  crumpet  and  coffee…. it tasted  really  good maybe because  she was not  getting up  every  five  minutes  to  to  shout  to  her  children.

Stacking  the  dishwasher  she  looked at  the clock, ten minutes until she needed to  leave. This  was a novel feeling , no  stress no  stomachache. At  seven thirty  precisely she picked up her car keys  and  handbag  and  left  the house.

On the drive  to work  she relished  the novel  feeling of  silence  and  peace. She  arrived  at  work on  time and  relaxed. At nine thirty  her mobile rang  she  turned it on  to silent and ignored it.  That  was novel  too but  it  would only  be  the children  wanting  this or  that!

***************************************

As soon as  she had  closed  the front  door after  a  five minute  stunned  silence  all hell broke  loose . There  were four  dazed teenagers  fighting for  the  bathroom, frantically searching  for  clothes. Mum had  only  called  them once and  she had  left  on  time.

Quiet a novel feeling  for them too. They  all had  to  fend  for  themselves and  they were all shocked  and  stunned!

Well Mum did  this  five  days on the  trot, she looked better  and  felt  better.

A Novel  side effect  the  children  got up  on  time  everyday , tidied  their  rooms  and  sorted  their  laundry!

Meanwhile  in  the  REAL  WORLD  nothing  changed…I  said  real  world , not  a novel!
