I’ve been ‘off’ on my posting lately – partially because my projects are bigger now and take a bit longer to complete. Partially because I still have to maintain my day-to-day responsibilities (which I’ve posted in the past and you probably don’t want to see again) and partially because my days are filled with “moments” that don’t add up to an entire article.

There were far more of these:
April Fool’s provided a lot of chuckles over here; first with the green milk that found its way into my chai tea;
The girls also replaced my bar of soap in the shower with a bar of butter…
They filled the centre of my scrubbie with toothpaste,
and they filled my now-empty toothpaste with milk.
I spent the day all lubed up and greasy – but with a minty fresh scent.
The best part (for them) was sitting there watching me as I uncovered prank after prank. They had me sniffing towels, slowly creaking open doors and drawers and smelling everything before I ate it – all the while giggling away at their own cunning.
Don’t worry – I didn’t let them off the hook either… looked what I packed them for lunch that day;
While cleaning the carpets might not sound like fun, I get immense gratification from vacuum stripes.
Vacuum stripes topped with filthy evidence of my success is even better;
