I'm sure this will change, but at the moment, my favourite day is Friday by a mile. Firstly, it's Pizza Night - and we've recently been given a pizza oven thingy which means all our made-from-scratch pizzas are great . We've always made pizza with the kids - it used to be quite an intense noisy and often tearful experience - but now they are older Zali and Jett get into the groove quite quickly and make themselves something yummy with a minimum of fuss (not always mind you). My other favourite thing about Friday is that it is the only day I don't have to drop anyone off at school or creche on the way to work - I can just get up and go which gives me the freedom to go to the gym or for a run before work, or even just arrive early so I can go early at the end of the day. My third reason is that Friday is one of Jett's home-with-Daddy days, and Jon also picks up Zali from school so by the time I get home at 6pm the pizzas are normally well on the way and everyone is in weekend mode. The last reason is that it's one of the weekend 'sleepover nights' for Zali and Jett - this just means they share a room which they love - so they normally bounce off to 'bed' nice and early. Leaving me to blob in the beanbag with my delicious pizza and watch the WNBL basketball on ABC2 - bliss..
