“Ingratitude is treason to mankind.” James Thomson

Head. In. Sand. With pancakes!
Ever had one of those days when you feel like eating scrambled eggs and mushroom chow mein and toast with many cups of tea all day with the curtains drawn? And yet there is plenty you should be doing as your house hasn't been properly cleaned in eight weeks and the dishwasher is full and the kitchen surfaces are covered in dirty dishes and all your clean clothes are living in various inappropriate places in stringy piles because you've had some carpentry done in the room where they normally live - carpentry that you've been waiting to be finished since February - and yet this doesn't seem so bad because your suitcase from your holiday, from which you returned about ten days ago, is still completely full of perhaps inextricably intertwined items of clothing, so there isn't the contrast of tidiness which might show it up as messy, but everything has rather blended in as one large nest of chaos?
Maybe I could lay some carpet over it and move on.
