The Mum Meme

I asked my teens (aged 13 and 17) to answer the questions to this popular meme, i speed typed their responses as they gave them…my fingers were twitching to do a major editing job, but i resisted, just about, well with the exception of  ‘the chicken coup’ edit….i’ve lost you haven’t i? Don’t worry, you’ll soon see what i mean…

Wondergirl – when I do the dishes  or when we watch Charmed or  Poirot or when Grissom is on CSI or when I do a spontaneously nice thing or when she is taking photographs or listening to Andrea Bocelli…or when she wakes up at the crack of dawn and puts on her workboots and apron and moseys on down to get the eggs from the chicken coup and then she comes back and rustles us up some boiled egg for breakfast (edited to say: that’s what DD saidbut we don’t have chickens or a chicken coup and i wouldn’t get up at dawn for hardly any reason i could think of!!!)
Wonderboy – hardly anything
