My neighbours dogs are so useless that the slightest noise and they bark. I get up in the morning and make the slightest of noises and they are off barking, they would make useless guard dogs as they bark at me flicking a light switch, my toaster popping, Beauty watching the Dr Who site(the noise of the Daleks), closing a door.............you name it , they bark. Getting up early is not nice at the best of times but for your every movement to be accompanied by the barking of a pair of mutts is just downright irritating. Remember the story of The Boy Who Cried Wolf.
What about The Dogs Who Barked?
Due to circumstances, I had to go out again in the car during the day and everywhere I go I am surrounded by drivers who believe that they do not need to indicate. As I tell my children, I am not psychic and I do not have eyes in my butt!
My day has been no better at home, I feel like Nicole Kidman(though obviously not as pretty or as thin) in The Others.
Am I a ghost and I do not realise it?
I ask my children to put away the clothes I have washed, dried and folded- repeatedly but still at 7:30pm they are in baskets in my kitchen! Also the bathroom is still uncleaned and I have been asking them to clean the bathroom for three days(they are meant to clean it daily!)
Perhaps they would notice me if I locked away all the food or threw it all away.
It seems that in school Beauty has learned a new song and she was heard singing it to herself in the corner,'Hwyl Fawr Frrindiau', she sang it all the way through on her own. I remember my girls singing it when they were little but they all went to Welsh Language schools. Beauty loves singing.
