kate5kiwis: "one of these things does not belong here..."

“If you were all alone in the universe with no one to talk to, no one with which to share the beauty of the stars, to laugh with, to touch, what would be your purpose in life? It is other life, it is love, which gives your life meaning. This is harmony. We must discover the joy of each other, the joy of challenge, the joy of growth.” — Mitsugi Saotome

"one of these things does not belong here..."


*flashbacks/flashes back to sesame street*
there's something fishy been going on in our ensuite. there are no toddlers in residence, so we really don't need to barricade the drawers. upon enquiry, it transpired that S9 accidentally dropped a clothespeg down the loo and needed to borrow M5's fishing net to retrieve it.
i didn't ask any more...

and on the *family news* front, J11 got 80% in his Grade One Music Theory Exam yesterday, and D17 got an *excellence* in his Conversational
French Assessment.
he and i were all set to watch Paris, je t'aime at the local
arty fahty cinema tonight, but the last showing was yesterday (what's french for *aaarrrghhhhh*???)
so we'll have to figure out something else for our Evening Out.
and it will *not* be fishing.....
POST SCRIPT:
we watched La French Filme after all:
S9 got Mr Bean's Holiday out (on our last free dvd ticket *claps hands*) and IT'S SET IN *F-R-A-N-C-E*!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
so D17 and i merrily chirped out the translations for the rest of the wanna-be-francophiles, who were mostly buried in M5's tent (yep, it fits in the lounge. well, the lounge just fits around it), rustling their sleeping bags and watching the movie through the keyhole tent door, and wide-eyed-ly seeing if they'd turn into pumpkins when the clock struck twelve...
and this morning the younger two are still squashed inside with their sister, listening avidly to her dramatic rendition of Fantastic Mr Fox.

Hmm, clothespeg in the loo, huh?

I wouldn't have asked too many questions, either. *wink*
