"To Mummy, this is our happy family"...

It’s happy, primarily because Toby’s not there, chucking our stuff down the toilet. It’s also nice to see that whilst in real life I’ve had no use whatsoever out of the ties Lisa bought me for Christmas, in Amelie’s imagination I’m wearing them constantly. Along with two black eyes and no ears.

Anyhoo, the truth is that in reality Amelie does have a lot to be happy about. I bought her some Peppa Pig pancake mix this week...

Obviously I didn’t buy it on Shrove Tuesday. I bought it on Ash Wednesday. I think it was some kind of fire sale. Asda battered down the prices of their pancake mixes on the first day of Lent, so I borrowed 50p from Lisa and bought a bottle of pig-themed strawberry flour.

Amelie’s pictured above on the edge of wild excitement and anticipation with a load of nit lotion in her hair, dressed in raspberry scrubs stained with insecticide. Which is typical for a midweek evening. Five minutes later, after I’d flipped the first pancake and she’d actually tasted the finished product, her level of interest waned substantially. Suffice it to say that the pancakes were endorsed by Peppa, mainly because you’d only feed them to a pig.

On the bright side, however, that photo also showcases our newly positioned kitchen cupboard, which was reinstalled last week by the council, after they informed us at short notice that they needed to fit a new vent in our kitchen wall. The men turned up while I was at work, and informed Lisa that to make enough room, they’d be moving our wall cupboard down six inches. Which sounds fine, until you realise that it’s now only eight inches above the top of our dish drainer and we can’t dry any plates. So we basically have two options: either put them all in the tumble dryer, or start eating our meals off saucers.

I'm trying to work out whether the female members of your family are overweight or are just wearing ballet skirts. Meanwhile you look very slim and suave! And obviously very happy.
