In which my children show how much they care…

During the highly dangerous pursuit of getting several loads of washing off the line just now, I somehow scraped a fair amount of skin off one of my right knuckles on a sharp edge of the washing basket.

While I was wrestling with sticking a rectangular plaster on a very less than rectangular knuckle, so as to avoid bleeding all over the cheese and crackers I was about to make for them, the following exchange took place:

Me: [typical melodrama] I do hope this stops bleeding soon! If I pass out in the near future, please do call an ambulance.

One: [sounding slightly bored] We will.

Two: [With great animation and excitement] Can I press one of the nines?!

 

I might write about the rest of the day later (assuming I haven’t bled to death). It’s been lovely.

  1. I thought that was going to be all about how lovely they have been to you for Mothers’ day. Knowing your children, I should have known better! 😉
