I was up at 5.45 a.m. this morning and after some gentle toe nibbling De got up too – I like to share that wonderful dawn experience but De seemed less keen and went back to bed shortly afterwards so I entertained myself with a good book that had been left on the kitchen table. Unfortunately, my attempts to turn the pages with my teeth resulted in some ‘superficial’ damage. In my defence I can only suggest that publishers make more of an effort to make their books more robust – pages just fall apart when you touch them with your teeth! Needless to say, De was not impressed with my reading style and tapped my bottom with the book! You are tapping the wrong bottom De – it’s the publishers bottoms you should be tapping!
