On personal space

I have been trying to kick back a bit at home lately, and not be constantly rushing around doing chores and admin. It's all part of my trying not to sweat the small stuff, and generally trying to be a more chilled out and less stressy person to be around. There's been some good things about this - for example I have learnt that the world does not stop if I do not empty the dishwasher the minute it finishes. (It does stop, a tiny bit, if the dirty dishes are not put in the dishwasher the minute the meal is over, but hey - small steps and all that.)

But one thing that is definitely NOT good about all this flipping chilling out is the vastly increased opportunities this gives my kids, big and small, to use me as some sort of human climbing frame.
