Start off young.....
and they SHOULD help you out later on in your elderly years or at least one can hope they do! Lol.
Anyway I just know I might get some stick for this piece but please bare in mind it is only wrote very tongue-in-cheek although in time you will all see the way my sense of humour works….if only this forum had smilies it would make things so much easier!
Anyway here it comes I’m all for child labour (at least for our ) neieces and the wages I pay my little nieces are peanuts sometimes quite literally peanuts!
We had the two little ones round yesterday 4 year old Holly who is always willing to help out and boy is she a very strong little girl as slim as a snake also her little chunky sister Jade aka ‘Chuckie’ as she has cute curls just like Chuckie from the Rugrats although her curls are blonde not red she’s nearly 3 by the way and just a little bit on the lazy side….bless her cheeky ways!
Anyway they both came round to help their uncle Bob to cut the grass although I had to battle the lawn mower off Holly as she tries to have a go everytime although I must say she does a fine job when she’s allowed to mow.
Both the girls did a really smashing job sweeping up after their uncle what with Chuckie armed with her dustpan and brush (although she did slack off quite a few times to sit next to her beloved uncle) Holly had the long arm of the law aka the yard brush. We had a hunt for some ladybirds, spiders and things and then it was time to ‘pay’ them their wages a can of pop and a tube of sweets….one again these pennies of ours go a long way! ;0)
The grass looks far much better for the cut although true be told it would never be a show stopper what with the Yorkies and the little lasses running around the place and most of it’s going this year when we make a start after the greenhouse has gone up,
we have just ordered one it’s only a 8×6 that’s all we could squeeze into the space where it’s going and I’m so looking forward into removing all the seeds into their new home.
As I’ave said the grass will mostly go this year and be replaced with a jungle trail where hidden delights will surely enchant both old and young alike once again a safe garden with children in mind and of course the fun factor will be played upon.
Looks like we are in for another nice day no need to ask where I’ll be then.See you later.Hel.xxx.
