Our dog does that.
He will pick up a chew or something then parade around showing it off to everyone. We all have to praise him and his 'kill'. Sometimes when I'm in bed he will trot in with something in his mouth and only toddles off after he gets some praise.

^ I laid bubblewrap on my landing recently, left over from ebaying. Every time I go to the loo in the middle of the night I forget and I cheer myself up with some pop pop pop. Its the small things in life that make it worth living I find.

^ Its that huge stuff for big boxes.

We once laid an entire floor and ran over it in wheeled office chairs. Obviously it ended in tears but it was fun until we started playing 2 player.

You can get battery powered keyring electric bubble wrap too, it seemed like a good idea but that was a very long christmas day once my dad opened that I can tell you.

This evening I was driving home and saw two schoolboys walking home, I think they must have been brothers. The youngest was carrying a big bag, he looked tiny, the older brother took his bag off him and started carrying it probably because it was heavy. I thought it was a very kind of him.

^ every 50 presses it made a fart instead. My dad is getting on a bit and this seemed like a good reason to keep on going until the next fart, and then the next, and then..... you get the idea.

Tough day for flumpsy.

Then my partner, comforting me and mentioned Margaret Thatcher. Gave me butterflies in my tummy.

Then my partner, comforting me and mentioned mustard. Gave me butterflies in my tummy.

Then my partner, comforting me and mentioned myrmecology. Gave me butterflies in my tummy.

Then my partner, comforting me and mentioned massive dinghies. Gave me butterflies in my tummy.

Got to be one of these.

My money's on 'Minotaurs'. Nothing like a minotaur to get one's tummy a-fluttering.

I have a mate called Bennie who is in love with a minotaur, but it wasn't meant to be. How could the love between a minotaur and a clown ever survive in this judgemental society?

^Yeah, but I suppose it's hard when you're the matriarch of a mob family to allow your kids to be who they are and not try and force them to follow the mob path. Sad, really.

^ You know a couple of days later I thought that the m-word might be marriage rather than mustard. Seems obvious now but honestly didn't cross my mind at the time. Margaret Thatcher doesn't give you butterflies in your tummy?

Thatcher does many things to my tummy, but butterflies ain't one of them.

@Vienna. If the Rumster were to propose officially, would you say yes?

You can answer here. It's private and he'll never see this. Honest!

Ah, yes. I'm with you on the whole wedding day fuss, thing. To be honest, that aspect puts me off too. Mind you, my partner has already been married once and if we got married she would rather us just do it on a beach in the Caribbean without any fuss at all. I could go for that. Maybe you and the Rumster could get married at the peak of Cat Bells in the Lakes or something like that. No fuss, just you two and a few passing hikers as witnesses.

Chatting with my daughter. She said something, I replied by saying "Why?", then she said "You don't say 'Why', you say 'Pardon'."

That the two stray cats that my Mum's been feeding are going to be re-homed. I was so worried that they'd end up somewhere that puts stray cats to sleep. We found somewhere that will look after them even if no one will adopt them. I felt so bad that we couldn't take them in but we have too many pets. I think I'll still cry and be worried when they go though.

Getting my kid ready for bed.

'You're making a big mess and I've just cleaned up in here'. He responds, 'well, you'll just have to do it again tomorrow'.

Such sass. So proud.

Earlier on I was walking through where I live, looking for my little cat. A couple of girls were picking up this cat that looks exactly like my cat, so I went over but they were calling the cat a name and it let them pick it up. That made me think it couldn't possibly be mine. We walked round in a big circle and ended up back near the girls.

They followed us and stopped us to ask if we've lost a cat. I explained that we had and that I assumed that cat was their cat. They said it wasn't, but they didn't want us to think that they were trying to nick someone's cat, so they were trying to make it sound like it was their cat.

Anyway... one of the girls got her phone out to ask me if I'd posted on facebook about losing my cat. I had! So she said that she was looking for it because her Mum showed her the post. They were trying to get this cat to show their Mum. They'd taken photos and videos to show me!

So very sweet of them. People say such bad things about teenage girls, but these girls were lovely. She said she'd call me if she finds my cat.

I was in the shop earlier and when I got to the till I realised that I'd left my card out of my purse. I always forget to put it in the right place.

The man at the till told me to take the stuff and pay for it anther day! How sweet! I couldn't do that to him though in case he got into trouble, so I went home and returned with my debit card.

Everyone seems so nice at the moment.
