Saturday Morning

MrsM is Very Busy.

MrsM's List
Housework,
Laundry,
Shopping
Flower Arranging.


MrM is also Busy, Busy.

MrM's List
Catch up on Sleep
Honey for Breakfast
Read Papers
Decide What to Wear


MrsM starts to get cross with MrM
It is 8.15am and he has done NOTHING.

MrM decides to lighten the mood.
Option 1
Helpful Suggestions for Blog Posts
(Parsnips??)
Option 2
Mentions their long lost Children
(This almost works)

MrsM has a Schedule and must not be distracted
because she has an Important Meeting.
MrsM starts to get Very Cross.
(Tone of Voice: FIRM)
She tells MrM he must do something Useful
by the time she comes back from The Shop.

MrM promises to organise a Map
of the Hundred Acre Wood.

Later MrsM is VERY grateful to MrM
for aforementioned map.

Moral:
Small Contributions can be Crucial to the Objective

This is ridiculously cute.

I always have a soft spot for the original Winnie the Pooh drawings!

E.H Shepard illustrations are just gorgeous. Many years ago I gave up blustering as I clean. Now I just leave a mess in the kitchen when I cook because my Pete cannot stand mess in the kitchen. He will always clean up after me without bluster.

Surely that would work with Mr.M?

After picking my allotted quota of blackberries (MrsM can be a real slave driver at times) I shall be restocking the hunny store this after at the local show.

I love a good bit of Winnie the Pooh - original, of course!! I'm grateful to MrM for his contribution to your Very Important Meeting, too - it wouldn't have been half as nice without you!!

We were raised on the Pooh books and I still love those illustrations best.

MrM does bear (ha!) a striking resemblance to Pooh Bear.
