There is something so annoying when you have put on just a smidge of weight and it all goes on your tentacles  and you can no longer fit in the bath. Caroline was really not in a good mood. She wanted peace and quiet and instead was bombarded with shrieks and screams and even when Val offered to light some candles and to bring some wine her temper had not soothed. Mary found a shoehorn with a very long handle and together they tried to squish Caroline into the bath along with her bath toys. As one sticky tentacle was tucked in so another popped out... this did not bode well.
There was a squishy tapping on the door. The sort of tapping that someone might do with one hand and one soggy end. Caroline squealed a very ladylike 'Go away' but Thing really, really wanted to clean up his wound. With a lot of fuss he managed to get the Bathroom door open and ran past Val and Mary towards the sink almost passing the bath on the way. Almost but not quite. Caroline's front right tentacle shot forward, wrapping round Thing, lifting him off the floor.. hugging him too tightly each time he breathed out so he couldn't quite take a deep enough breath to keep living.
Val and Mary decided it was probably the right time to wander off, just slowly, not in any kind of hurry, just twelve more steps and they would be at the remains of the door frame.

I just read this out to my husband and he said. " Use a shovel to hit Caroline on her head. Because of the pain she will lift all her tentacles at once to soothe the pain. Then you just need to use the shovel again to scoop her up and place her in the bath" Job done. 

We have a new lady... Viki could you remember to bring a shovel when you visit the house? And go round the back..don't, whatever you do, go to the front door and DON'T sit on the couch on the porch! 


  1. BWAHAHAHAHA....well done Hubby coming up with the perfect solution...a bit too late for Thing where are Val & Mary wondering off to, I hope they're heading my way with refreshments, I do still have quite a few bags of popcorn? Caroline is freaky faBOOlous👻

  2. Love all your projects! Your story is wonderful! I kinda of can't wait till the end to read it all together! Fabulous job!

  3. Sounds like Thing may be on his way out unless he
    can get Caroline to loosen up. Val and Mary were
    smart - they might have been the next victims.
    thanks for sharing.

  4. I am simply ROTFLMAO at this wonderful story and your hubby's wonderful solution!
    Gorgeous project.

  5. Hahaha, I have my shovel in hand.

  6. Fancy a bath in there with that??

  7. Yes Leigh, Val and Mary are heading your way with wine and candles as Caroline didn't want them!
