Child-minding for the McTavish grandkids again and never a dull moment with these boys. Lion looked in my shoe cupboard and "found" some "tap" shoes. Hard plastic soles are the closest thing we have to tap shoes around here. I can remember when I was a little girl that the cobbler (we had real cobblers back then) put little metal bits on the sides of the heels of my shoes because I kept wearing them down. They really did tap after that. So many of life's little pleasures have been lost.
Anyway, Lion and Dragon started to improvise a little dance. By the time I found my camera and some dancing music (karaoke Christmas was the best I could find at short notice) they were starting to lose interest, but with the promise of some chocolate biscuits for morning tea, their enthusiasm returned. For a little while at least.
I prefer not hear my own voice recorded, but it can't be helped. I reckon I should be offered a job doing voice-over for cartoon and computer animations because I can do a great wicked witch impersonation.
If you listen really carefully you will hear a little squeak from Monkey in the background.
