Housework mysteries

This morning I took Harry Bear to playgroup again... he is so independent when he is there, doesn't want me anywhere near him, unlike a lot of the other toddlers who stay really close to their mums. He is also a tad on the daring side, climbing on the climbing frame, throwing himself down the slide, and then crawling into the area where the cars and bikes are. If I took him out of that area once, I did it 10 times, and still he kept crawling back to get crashed into some more... strange child!!!

This afternoon we went and did a little bit of shopping, so the little fella hasn't had a nap... which only means trouble later on!!! I also decided to do a spot of hoovering... we are still battling with a rug that is no longer new, but still malts like a big hairy dog! Seriously... how long can a rug malt for without going threadbare??? Well I decided that whilst I had the hoover out, I may as well do all of downstairs.... living room and dining room, fine no problem... into the hall way, hoover seemed a bit sluggish... gave it a tug, all seemed to be ok... into the kitchen, it went sluggish again, turned around and there was a Harry Bear climbing on the hoover!!! So that is my smile for today... what should have been a quick whip round with the hoover, turned into a 10 minute hoover ride for Harry.

Today's prompt is 'currency'. I have opted for a really obvious piccie... play money. Not Monopoly, although that was my first thought... but Operation money. This game is out on the dining room table ready to played later... so it was just asking to be photographed.

Hoping to have a play tonight with the chipboard books I have been sent by Carolinezcraftz... they are dead cute, and perfect gift size, you can see them here, I have the round and the love book.

This is making an appearance on quite a few blogs at the moment, so I thought i'd have a play too. I quite like my CD cover. My group is called Zaronoff, and the song title is A Form Of Wealth... cool eh?
The title of the first article on the page is the name of your band:
The last four words of the very last quote is the title of your album:
The third picture, no matter what it is, will be your album cover:

Use your graphics program of choice to throw them together ... and hey presto! You have your album cover:

I think you missed the point Lou, not to give him a ride on the hoover, but teach him to use it ;o)
