Daniel Radcliffe is Pretty Ancient Now

Before I show you my photos from my enforced holiday, I have to tell you my latest plan. The Parents are having a new baby-child before Christmas and this, according to Dexter, is just like Jesus. I am not keen on having a baby, let alone a beardy-baby like Jesus but there we are. I am quite keen on building an underground room for myself so that I do not have to endure all the wailing and crying. It is unfortunate that I do not have a room on the ground floor because if I start digging now I will have to drop down through the sitting room and I think someone would notice. So, I am going to begin under the stairs. No one will see me there because it is already full of useless stuff that might come in handy one day AND if I am caught, I can just inform The Parents that I am rehearsing for the part of Harry Potter (they will love that) because Daniel Radcliffe is pretty ancient now and will probably want to retire before long.

Oh poor Wilf - the things you will have to endure in the months and years to come... I think the idea to start burrowing now is excellent - that time by the kid-sibling is of an age to become really irritating you can be well on your way to Australia!

PS if the baby is beardy, I'd be worried, the parents, you may find, have hatched a gremlin!

Go for it! The Colditz theatre tunnel was started fron the 3rd floor.

I always thought it would be kinda cool to have a younger brother or sister to take the crumblies' attention off me, and to blame for stuff. I've got 4 big brothers & I tell you it's a pain, like having 4 extra parents.

Hi Wilf,
The baby may just be gurgling and happy all the time. Couldn't you tell it spaceman stories to keep it in a good mood?

Wilf said...

Stop, Atyllah! Burrowing maybe the only way out. And actually fun.

Wilf said...

FOUR brothers - ouch.

Wilf said...

I cannot believe a baby-child will be happy all the time, Suzan. I will probably end up shouting at it.

Wilf,

Perhaps if you stick around and train the baby Jesus addition as your second, then you will have a reliable team-mate on your side when the cousins come to harrass you, and it will be evenly sided and better won then...

just a thought..

Hmmm, S and V, I suppose I might let him/er be on my side.
