That old chestnut about cardboard boxes

7 Dec

In this week’s Ocado order, there were two large boxes of tissues in an attempt to stem the flow of snot from winter noses.  As I was putting them away, Ned asked “Can I have the lids from the boxes, please?”.  “No, the tissues will get dirty before we’ve used them”.  “Oh, please, please, please.  Dickon and I really really need them for our game”.  “I suppose so, here you are”.  “Come on Dickon, you’re my pet budgie and these are your cuttlefish”.

I’m not overly worried about how the children will entertain themselves without cupboards full of toys.
