HS:MS - Straight

Moving or extending in only one direction.

Hers: Bedroom blinds.

When you live in a house that is over a hundred years old it is very difficult to find anything that could remotely pass as straight. Even if the item in question is straight it looks crooked against the wall, floor or any other housy bit that strays into the piccy! I did think about my hair but that would be too much like hard work, washing, drying, straightening. It was lovely and straight yesterday until I got caught out in the hugest downpour of the wet stuff ever, even the cows were sprinting for cover as I walked passed the field.


It's going to be another dreary day here doing nothing but housework. I didn't manage to get much done yesterday due to one thing and another. The postman bought me some interesting mail yesterday, a letter from the mobile phone insurance company saying that Kyle's mobile is not insured as they have never had the receipt or payment details (I gave this job to Pete in good faith about 6 weeks ago and he promptly forgot about it) and an unexpected surprise from Matt's school in the form of his school report. Mmmmm is all I can say really, the words silly, easily distracted, talks too much, doesn't listen enough feature in most lessons! The consensus is he is intelligent (gets that from my side! Lol) but must try harder to reach his full potential. Matt came home from school yesterday and the poor lad had to then sit and listen to me rant at him about the importance of education, he eventually made his escape taking the dogs out for a walk, which is unheard off so I must have been going on. He maybe should have stayed at home as I ended up getting phone calls (about 8 in total) saying the dog had bitten his tongue off and Kyle had walked fully clothed into the river with his new "LG Chocolate" mobile (yes the uninsured one) in his pocket. AAarrrghhh! On their return it turned out that the dogs tongue was slightly cut not bitten off and the mobile was dead. After a lot of tears from Kyle it spent the night tucked up on the radiator and is feeling much better this morning but it did have to endure a lot of jokes last night about it being a hot chocolate.
OMG I have just noticed that you can see the dust on my blinds, off to dust them now!

1. I like dust.
2. My house is old too, I know all about crooked (esp men, but that's another story).
3. In my childhood, we used to say cows lying down meant rain, so I howled laughing at your ones running.
4. I did not laugh at your teenage boy, like I have never laughed at my own, at least not since he grew bigger than me.
