The kids are alright. Well, mostly...

Hola and happy weekend (with all due apologies to those of you working Saturday and Sunday).

Today, we have another guest slot, courtesy of the daughters of a friend. You have met one of them already in this post. Today, she makes a repeat appearance and brings her younger sister with her. T is only four, so some allowances can be made, but we can still have a chuckle and say "Awwwww" fondly, can't we?

One day, the two girls were playing with their dolls; naturally, the dolls all have their own outfits and accoutrements, according to whatever scenario takes the girls' fancy. On this occasion, T was readying one doll and packing some clothes into a small bag. When she was done, she announced...


If it wasn't a word before, it jolly well is now! Mind you, she could have come up with something a little easier for me to type...
Ah well.

More recently, the older sister, S - who is six - woke up one morning with something of a stiff neck. It was fairly severe, in that she couldn't simply move her head from side to side to free it up. Instead, when S wanted to look at something to the side, she had to swivel her whole body around and look at it that way. I'll tell you something, I think S explains it much better...


We all know what S meant, but doesn't that conjure up such a wonderful image? Slightly reminiscent of Worzel Gummidge in a way...
