Mogs betrayed me last night by going to sleep on the bed with Matt. She found the hot water bottle and decided to hi-jack it by sitting directly on top and getting in the way. Awwww.
Just munching a slice of cheese on toast and checking my mail before I attempt to embark on a mammoth house clearance task, during which time I shall be disconnecting the PC and NOT dialling up til I’ve finished. Honest!
Heh, just remembered Andy being a super hero! He told us he used to do the tie your Parka around your neck thing and zoom around the playground saving the day. Except he wasn’t Superman, he was Hong Kong Phooey! And before that, Touche Turtle was his character of choice! *giggle*
Oh and Matt’s just been naughty and opened his pressies! Bad boy! Mine are still intact, see I’m a good girl really.
Also, it was last night decided that Public Safety Information Ads need to make a comeback. The problem with youngsters today is that they haven’t been scared shitless by graphic portrayals of small children frying when their kites or fishing rods hit overhead powerlines, or being horrifically mutilated on building sites. Sarah and Paul also swore blind that they used to be shown “How to survive a nuclear war” videos which taught them to cower beneath doors without your toes sticking out and to paint your windows white. Feel like I missed out on those ones. Sound advice I’m sure!
Sarah redressed a clanger in the remains of a pink metallic balloon that had resembled a large mammory, or a pregnant lady’s stomach, and proceeded to make it do “Charley Says” impressions along to whatever music was playing at the time.
Hmm, do I really NEED a spider that descends a thread if you make a sound and creeps the hell out of me as it climbs back up? Or how about a pink goblin thing with a green nose that giggles and shakes if you clap your hands? Or two wrought iron candlesticks that have sat dusty in the corner ever since I got them? Or a pair of red devil horns on a headband that flash oh so spookily? Can I see myself ever being wistfully lacking an Action Man Activity Centre CD ROM suitable for age 3 plus? To a CHARITY SHOP be done with it!!!
