Small Talk #106

by

I’ve heard them say I’m being rather difficult lately. They say it must be the disruption of staying at Granny and Baba’s house while Daddy and Grandad are knocking our house about and installing a new kitchen/diner by themselves (Daddy’s a bit tight-fisted! Why doesn’t he call in the professionals?)

I don’t see Daddy too much now so I can admit to being grumpy, because I can be difficult, not wanting to get dressed, eat food, go out, to bed etc.

They’ve all noticed my new concessionary word. I use it emphatically when their blackmail attempts are succeeding.

“O...Kayyy!”

    How do you keep a straight face, that's what I want to know. That's the most difficult part, in my opinion :)

    It does prompt a furtive smile all round. It’s delivered in a very Kevin and Perry way, which, given the fact that otherwise he is an extremely polite and kind boy, is rather amusing. I think he’s understandably a bit spooked by the changes to his routines. What was meant to be a week’s stay away from home will likely end up a month!😰

    Aw poor boy, but I guess he'll enjoy being spoiled by all and sundry :)

    He should be enjoying it. I bet Baba makes a pretty good partner in crime (i.e. ice cream before dinner, etc.)

    Thanks Christopher. We do have quite a bit of fun together it’s true, but we have noticed how he is rather uncharacteristically out of sorts. Understandable given that his house is upside down and all his routines are completely shot to pieces. The trip on the narrow gauge railway was great fun though, despite the disability bouncing (see Travelling on the Ironic Horse)
