My youngest daughter and I wanted to surprise my eldest daughter this morning with an April fool’s day joke. The eldest daughter is working from home and is often a bit slow-to-wake so we (early birds) plotted and planned while she was still asleep. When she awoke and made her sleepy way to the toilet still in half a coma, we implemented our evil plan.
‘Hey sleepy head. Scomo (Aussie PM) has just announced that today is a public holiday. That we have all been doing so well keeping the rules and looking after each other that we can have the day off. And the government will pay every child, woman and man in the country a day’s salary (at a politician’s daily rate! but I did not say that at the time)’
‘Really,’ she squeaked enthusiastically from the bathroom; early-morning endorphins filling her beautiful body and mind.
‘April fool’s day!’ we shrieked, as we cackled at successfully implementing our annoying plot.
She is still recovering!
And, a good friend has kindly shared these wonderful images with us for the blog. She has a year 12 son at home to keep in good spirits and her creativity is in over-drive maintaining good humour for the household. Thanks Judyth.
Happy April fool’s day to you all!
