84. Summer is the highest spending months for parents. Not only did you spend all your money on Christmas presents, food, maybe a trip, you have to spend more money on getting the kids ready for school, uniforms, books, stationary. It's a parents season of being poor.
85. Lots of handeymen of all sorts, close up shop for the season for a holiday. So not only are you home 24/7 with kids, that could possibly clog up your loo, but there is a possibility the local plumber could be on holiday!

#@#$#@@ snake in the toilet.
Ds2 was on the toilet at the time. He jumped down and jumped over the snake and toke off running with the snake between his legs. I lost sight of it as I was getting the toddler out of harms way. I can't see it so I am going with the thought it's long gone now.
