As you can tell, they didn't stay in the box very long. Bear also managed to persuade DH that he needed some mirrored sunglasses. I can really understand that.
I have been lazy today, and I have been tearing up a duvet cover. I bought this
It's a reversible duvet cover, two metres square, which cost £10 and I wanted the navy side of the fabric for the first attempt to cover the arms of the sofa (project pending). Today I ripped the pale blue side into strips around an inch or so wide to use on the lucet. I am now coughing and the laptop I was sitting at is covered with a layer of fluff. Next time I shall rip it outside. However I have luceted (if that's the right word) almost half of it already and I'll post a picture when I've finished.
Bear was allowed (somewhat against my better judgement) to watch A Study in Pink, a Sherlock episode with Benedict Cumberbatch. Now he has gone to bed with some of the original Sherlock Holmes stories. I don't expect him to be able to read them, but I do expect him to be incredibly annoying about it for some time.
justjill - both DH and I laughed out loud at your comment! Did you see the post where I thought it was a good idea to buy 90 ties (yes, ninety)? One day I shall learn my lesson!
