Bits and pieces
by Bonnie Pockley
With a broken washing machine and two sick children, we’ve been hauling ourselves off to the laundromat as a stop gap. Since the toyshop is just down the road, we somehow managed to end up with two pink strollers, an extra ‘baby’ and a little toy truck in the time it took for the cycles to turn over. The same afternoon we went to the RSPCA to finally welcome a new addition to our family – a female tabby cat we’ve named Plum – who is already a constant source of delight and entertainment. The twins are beside themselves.
