As it turned out, Lisa got up yesterday morning and had Amelie's dress off her in about three seconds flat. So I think I'd obviously loosened it. It probably slipped off more easily with a cup of water down the front too. Suffice it to say, she had a lot to thank me for.

So with Amelie successfully freed from her bonds, I took her down to the marina in her sparkly shoes. And a different dress. I wanted to buy her a new painting book, because in addition to being water-logged, her old one is now completed. She's knocking out art for art's sake, quicker than you can say Monet, Monet, Monet.

Tragically, I failed to find anything suitable, so I bought this instead...

Meerkat ManorIt's Meerkat Manor! Simples! I got the DVD box set of the first series for just £4.99. And then decided to get the second series too for only twice the price. That's ten hours of meerkat magic for under a tenner. It should keep Amelie quiet for... oooh, about a day. And if you compare the 'Meerkat Manor' with 'In the Night Garden', which I'm forced to watch against my will for hour after endless hour, every day of my godforsaken life, there's no competition. Makka Pakka's all very well, but all he does is wash stones and dance a bit. Meerkats are far more entertaining.

As the box set cover says:

"Follow the daily saga of the Whiskers, a 12-inch tall family that's a lot like yours."

It then gives examples:

That sums up me and Lisa pretty well. Although she always preferred wine to snakebite.

I've just bought the 2nd video of Stuart Little, in the sure and certain knowledge that Amelie will love it as much as the 1st one, especially if the cat that laughs is in it again!
