Ah ! Saturday morning. Nothing urgent on the agenda. I have prepared a cake and put it in the oven to cook slowly. Maybe I can turn my attention to this week’s topic for Tuesday..
PING! PING! PING!
That is the washing machine‘s end-of-cycle signal. I must just go and take the clothes out and hang them on the line. It won’t take a minute.
That’s done. Now what was the topic?
DRING! DRING! DRING!
Ah – the doorbell; that must be the postman with a parcel for me. I must sign for it and exchange a few words with him.
Back again. Where did I write the title of this week’s topic. It must be somewhere here.
DIDDLE DEE! DIDDLE DEE!
Oh my goodness ! That must be my sister calling on Skype. I wonder what she wants. I must take a few minutes to chat with her or she will be offended
. Half an hour later.
Here I am back at my desk and I still have not written anything.
PIP! PIP! PIP! PIP! PIP!
What can that be ?
It’s the oven !! I had completely forgotten my cake ! It’s probably burnt to a cinder by now. Yes, there is a big cloud of black smoke coming from the kitchen. I shall have to deal with that immediately.
TRA LA LA! TRA LA LA!
There! To crown it all – the telephone! Well I cannot answer now.
I just remembered the title of this week’s topic – Attention Vampires !
Well they certainly have been active here this morning.
I have not written one word !!!
