'Tis the season

Today the builder came to do a wee job and told us we needed to empty everything out of our bedroom and the children's bedroom, so we started dealing with that, but then a delivery truck arrived with an enormous, gorgeous outdoor table which was a Christmas surprise for me, so we started dealing with that, but then we realised that our backyard was full of bees.

After a day of moving everything out of the two messiest rooms in our house I got pizza for dinner, but to keep with the theme of chaos they gave me the wrong pizzas.

Now, we have gone back and collected the right pizzas and eaten, H & K's room is back together enough for them to sleep in, our room is still empty and covered in dust, the table is on the deck, the bees are hanging out in swarm like a giant strawberry in the neighbours' tree and I've mislaid my glasses.

Fa la la la la la la la la

Special theory of evolution

A small figure in a nightie just appeared at the living room door and said pathetically:
"H doesn't believe that a long time ago people looked like gorillas and lived in cages."
