"I not eating that acos I am sick"
"No you're not"
"Yes, I sick, I not at school and I am sick"
"No, you're not at school because school is closed because there's too much snow. Now eat your lunch"
Why didn't I listen?
One cleanup later, one small sad floppy girl. Several further cleanups later, one small sad tired floppy and cross girl.
You've heard the expression "Running about like a headless chicken?" I'd like to add a new one: "Sleeping like a headless cat" Little Fish cheered up at the prospect of doing her school homework. School being closed for the last couple of days, the head has issued a challenge to all the pupils - build a snowman, take a photo, email it. Grannie and Grandad were summonsed to helpAnd Little Fish decided it was too cold to do anything active, so sat in a sleeping bag in her sister's buggy and directed operations. Grandad was unimpressed with the quality of the snow. Despite being the deepest we've had here for many years, it was too dry and powdery to be packed into upstanding snowman shapes. So we settled for Snowman Blob instead. I like it! Hope Kitty and the Mancub approve.
Oh, and Gotcha would like you to know he hasn't really lost his head.Excuse the boxes; schools are closed, the milkman and carers and postmen and binmen are all absent, but our chemist still managed to deliver on time. Three boxes, three bags, and I still forgot to order some of the stuff we needed. Ah well.
Meanwhile, anyone seen a stork?
