I suspect I'm not the only pup whose human has lately been passing their excess time at home in less than impressive ways.
So last weekend, did Gail decide to start mastering a musical instrument?
She did not.
Did she finally get around to painting the spare bedroom?
Perhaps she learnt a Shakespeare sonnet or two off by heart?
Er, I don't think so.
I'll tell you what she did. She hauled a tattered plastic bag out of the cupboard and emptied the contents on the floor.
And announced, as if I would be interested, that today's project was going to be to sort out the knitting needle collection she's assembled over the past half century. Apparently the collection even includes some relics inherited from her Granny. This is the thrilling tale of how it went:
Step 1: Pair up the needles.
Step 2: Wonder how on earth there came to be so many unmatched pairs. Spend next half hour in a futile search for the missing items.
Step 3: Deploy the recently rediscovered sewing machine and fashion a bespoke knitting needle organiser.
Step 4: Neatly wrap up newly sorted needle collection ready for next knitting project.
Fellow pups, I'm wondering if your human can beat this for 'lamest ever lockdown activity'? Please tell me yours has been busy with something a bit more worthwhile...
Er Gail, I'm ready for my walk now.
PS: The real tragedy is quite how pleased and proud Gail was after she'd completed this effort!
