On her own initiative, Pearl drew up a “Jobs Rooster” for the family this week.  Fainjin’s and Babess’ days were blissfully free of obligations, but she had been pretty tough on herself.  Every week day had “practis” (as it should!), but at the weekend she nominated herself to clean the toilet on Saturday and “all the bedrooms” on Sunday.

Perhaps in honour of Fathers’ Day, The Dad’s schedule was comparatively light, mowing the lawn and cleaning the car his only jobs apart from “an hour of peace and quite” on Saturday.  Nice work if you can get it!

I was down to clean the kitchen and bathroom on Monday, then my week was free and clear until an ominous entry on Friday: “all forgotten”.

“What’s this one?” I asked.

“Oh, that’s all the other jobs I forgot to write down”, she airily informed me.

Lucky me!
