Hi! I'm babysitting for a friend tonight; not a good friend exactly (they've only been here 5 months or so), just another of the school mums. She and her husband are American and don't have family here, so I'm happy to help. When she asked me to do it, I readily said yes and assumed that the children (aged 4 & 7 years) would be in bed ... or heading that way! Turns out that it's a Burns supper they're going to and I've to be at theirs for 5.30pm. I hope they settle and go down to bed okay. Her children, although nice, are more highly strung than my own. We'll play some games, read some books and I'm sure it will all be fine. Wish me luck!
