In my vain attempts to distract myself today, I took to the home video collection and found this pearler taken earlier this month of the LGBB in her new ballet get-up. Bless her
cotton socks nylon ballet tights. She shows off a groovy bit of dancing complete with snarly looks – the snarly pout indicates the older/adolescent female version of herself, which she tries on whenever she wants to feel grown up (oh dear) – and is blissfully unaware I have propped up the iPhone camera whilst under the guise of cooking dinner.
Never let it be said I always have a clean house, but just a disclaimer: that dining room table always seems to have things draped on it/over it/under it whenever anything filmable happens in the kitchen! I see a discarded ball (thanks Jazz), a pet bed or two (thanks Pepper), a teddy/friend blanket made by yours truly strewn across the bench seat (thanks Lolly… or is that, thanks me?) and just no end of junk to be put away, really.
So enjoy my mess and my daughter’s dancing.
Oh, p.s. Astute watchers will note the bit-part cameos from Pepper, interjecting at two intervals with her latter-years signature bark (in time with the music, I might add). The staccato “Whaddabout me?!” bark for my attention that slowly drove me insane but that I’d give anything to hear today. Well…. maybe not. On second thoughts, it did most royally shit me and wasn’t ever her most endearing feature.
Anyway! To the video!
