The Princess has been up since 6.00. She has used the time slot between 6 and 8 productively. She has mashed porridge into the putting green and shredded tissues around the dining room. Exhausted from her efforts she has just gone back to bed.
The French Mama will be here at 11.00 with her supporting cast. I lived with this girl for two years, she is not the kind of person to approve of shredded tissue and mashed porridge. So at 8.15, I hoovered the dining room.

My A-number-one favorite non-American-English word is hoovered. I like it even better than boot. I may need to move to Europe simply so I can hoover the house rather than vacuuming it.

How about these ?
Jumper. Tights. Handbag. Pavement. Lift. Crisps = Taytos (in Ireland). Red lemonade (ditto).
Glad to be of service… have a nice day now y’all !
Green snot (hard to spot on our green carpet), tissue, pre-enjoyed biscuits, half-eaten pieces of fruit behind furniture, crying over spilled milk… all ahead of you
