Do you ever find no matter how early you get up theres never enough time? I'm up so early, but by the time I've dressed 4 kids, myself and fed everyone, I'm late. I ask the kids to help with something only to find 10 minutes later they've not done it. I literally have to chase and round them up (some times I get a little hysterical) whilst shouting have you got bag, drink, dance kit, coats....try this recipe its great to take on the school collection my kids always come out staarrvvviing!
