Remember how the ice cream sellers in comics used to say that – or have it written on their bikes/vans whatever?
What’s that got to do with the price of charcoal briquettes? Nothing. I just thought it would be a good title for a post.
Anyway as usual this is going to be a bitty post because that best sums up how I’m feeling – bitty!
I spent part of last weekend away with my youngest son and his family which was lovely even though the little one had a virus, poor little mite.
Just don’t get me started on doctors wearing face masks and suggestions of swine flu . . . no really, don’t!
It was a normal week with Lachlan at playgroup for his usual four mornings. It’s his last week next week before the summer hols and then he’ll start big school in September.
I must just tell you. When I was on the park with the kids today a man cycled past with a yellow Labrador sitting in a box on the front of his bike.
He had another dog running alongside and when that dog stopped to do its business, he stopped too and I wondered how on earth he was going to manage to pick it up.
I still don’t know how he did it, but he managed to hold the bike upright with the dog still in the box, bend over and using both hands, picked up the poo (in a bag!)
As someone who struggles to handle three dogs and a poo bag, I had the greatest admiration for him. There’s no way I could handle a bike as well!
You see what happens when I hit the bottle on a Friday night? I start rambling and waffling. You probably lost the will to live after my mention of swine flu and went off ages ago to watch grass grow.
Just think yourselves lucky I deleted half of this before posting it!
Finally and if you’re still with me, watch out for Anti Plagiarism Day on the 17th July. You can read about it here, http://howpublishingreallyworks.blogspot.com/2009/07/anti-plagiarism-day-friday-17-july.html
I’m off to pour myself another big one, dig around in the freezer for a Cornetto and flop in front of the telly to watch House!
Writing? Yes, I’ll get round to it . . . eventually!
