Reilly is super sensitive at the minute.  He hates lots of things.  His latest is he doesn’t like cups of tea.  Doesn’t matter what colour the cup or what type of tea but he won’t tolerate it in the same room.  We have a one cup boiler and if he hears it he storms the kitchen trying to get on the bench by any means necessary and smash the offending cup.  This is really unfortunate for me as I love tea, I embarrass my friends by ordering tea pots in bars on a regular basis.   I’ve lost 4 cups this week alone. If it doesn’t smash the first time he’ll have it on the second.

I feel like I’m walking on eggshells in my own home.  If I need to cough I run to the garage or back garden so he doesn’t hear.  He doesn’t like anyone eating different food to him unless it’s dominos pizza, we are allowed that while he eats his strippers combo.

When Thing 2 has his tea it’s planned with military precision.  Distract Reilly, grab plate, go go go up the stairs and lock yourself in before he sees/smells it.  I have today for my lunch stood at the cooker eating while Reilly watch Thomas in the living room.  I’m down to my last few plates I need to be careful, I was hungry and I honestly couldn’t be arsed with the kick off it would initiate.

If Thing 1 wanders into the living room with a glass of Coke you would think it was a grenade.  GET THAT OUT OF HERE NOW!! Reilly would fight you for it to break the glass regardless of who you are and what your size is.

I don’t understand a lot of things with Reilly and this week has just given more things to add to the These things piss Reilly off list.  I have been told that he’ll have to get used to it and do it regardless, I would invite that person to come to my home for the afternoon and try this out.  The one and a half hour screaming, holding breath, smashing the house up should be enough to back my actions.

For now I’ll stick to stuffing things in my mouth while my head is still in the fridge or cupboard and stealth missions for a cup of tea.  Tips always welcome 😃.
