Today was one of those days ... you know the ones ... It started this morning (as most days do), I calmly brushed my hair in the bathroom while Archer played at my feet and Charles sat on the edge of the bath watching. CRASH! Blackness! Wow the perfect piece of junk. Oh yes, the light globe above me exploded covering the floor with glass, terrifying Charles - he ran - and leaving Archer running up the inside of my leg and attempting to hug my thigh. But there on the floor lay the entire inner filament in one piece - a beautiful piece of glass. What? Yes, I was late for work ...
It has been raining here, A LOT! So after school I had a gutter to clean out - 4 meters above the ground. I spent a few moments ruing the day I gave up renting, especially when the rain came down, as I was up the ladder, and I got slime under my fingernails.
While I was wet I decided to clear the channels around my shed which stop it flooding in winter - what a blah job! Until - the little digger joined in, I giggled and giggled as he played in the water. Have I told you this one is like Charles, he loves water. It did not seem to bother him that my thermometer read 10 degrees Celsius, that wet dirt was flying in all directions and his nose was having a treat.
I feel a little guilty about turning Archer's joy to the sadness you see in this photo - but those feet could not stay that way. Could they?
