Thanks to the Irish Procrastinator today is my final chance to participate in this amusing quoting challenge. I have enjoyed myself immensely!
The rules are simple:
1. Thank the person who nominates you – thank you!!
2. Post one quote per day for 3 consecutive days
3. Nominate three new bloggers each day
Today’s quote comes from The Woman in White, by Wilkie Collins. It is quite shocking that he has not been mentioned in this blog before, but better late than never:
“I sadly want a reform in the construction of children. Nature’s only idea seems to be to make them machines for the production of incessant noise.”
This is possibly the only time I have ever agreed with the odious Mr. Fairlie of The Woman in White. Perhaps if my Chou were not screeching his displeasure, from his bedroom, at my insistence that he at least attempt to have a little nap I would be less of a humbug today. His powerful little lungs, combined with the indignity of having been, this morning, aimed at and drenched during an emergency toddler visit to a ‘squat’ toilet and minutes later smeared, via the bottom of my son’s welly, with something unmentionable that had previously been digested by a dog, have made me temporarily unfit for the entertainment of juvenile banshees. Once my beautiful yellow mac has recovered from its ordeal and is drying on the line outside I may, in turn, recover my good humour!
Todays’ three nominees are:
There is no obligation to participate and no offence will be taken if you would rather not play 🙂
