Here is the latest mattress spotted in an opshop – yes, I would definitely wear a frock in this floral.
School holidays. I have the least intrepid children in the world. Fraser says they are ‘untrepid’. We also joke about their ‘lack of feck’….(feckless, get it?)
How did our (if I say so myself) interested, explorative, curious, hungry-for-experience loins produce such untrepid beings?
ALL of my suggestions for adventures and ramblings are met with silence and then….”do we have to?” They would rather stay at home mooching, reading, computering, lolling about than do…..anything else.
Despite this, I have dragged DRAGGED their sorry butts along beaches and bush walks, on visits to friends, and around museums and art galleries.
Hopefully their stolid lack of verve just means they are currently pupating, like giant larvae….and one day they will shrug off their shawls of torpor and emerge……splendid, fully-formed and ready to venture off to great heights and across continents….
c’mon, life…surprise and delight me. I dare you!
