... or, pencil crayons, even.
|Ooh! Shiny! Just call me "Magpie"|
One might suspect that as I've been absent from the blog for a week, I would have been very busy doing very busy and important things? Oh, the important busyness I could have been doing!
Sadly, I haven't been importantly busy, or even busily important. No, I've been tasked with the taking-to and collecting-from school of The Little Witch all week. And then keeping her entertained for a couple of hours until Indescribable comes to collect her after work. This is what happens when I make it known that I have a couple of weeks off work. You'd think I'd've learned by now...
In between the taking-to and collecting-from school, I have been doing load after load of their washing (as well as all my own chores, and those of The Parents', too). In fact, having done a couple of loads yesterday, I had thought that I'd have today to myself as Indescribable (and her spawn) couldn't possibly have generated another machine-load of washing so soon. How wrong I was. I made myself a cup of coffee and took a piece of cake from the tin (half of which was devoured by Indescribable and The Little Witch yesterday), then sat down in front of the Demon Box and opened up the blog. And guess who turned up on the doorstep?
