This week

This week a few small lessons have been learned ...

D-next-door: Do not kick footballs when there are stones around. A stone may fly up and specatacularly smash the glass in the patio door. If you are going to do this, do it on a day when your Dad acquires a very nice new laptop from his office. This makes Dad more equable when coming home to a smashed window.

Star and A-next-door: When going on an errand to the shop, wait for instructions. If you do, you will know that you need to collect money from both your mothers in order to buy the items you have been sent for. If you do not, you will find yourself being asked for £2.65 when you only have £1.

Angel and J-next-door: If you shriek and holler too loudly when playing Frogger on the Playstation, your father will not be able to concentrate on his work. He will then send you to shriek and holler upstairs where there is (a) no Playstation, and (b) no TV to play it on, thereby rendering the shrieking and hollering redundant.
