I bought myself a present the other day. I had wanted one for so long and wondered how I ever did without it!
Do you own a feather duster? You know, the one with the long retractable handle if your'e lucky to reach up to the high spots and the soft, fluffy part on the end?
Mum had one when I was a kid, but I don't think hers had the retractable handle. I've been fluttering around this week with my new feather duster, cleaning here and there and removing dust, which in the country there's plenty of!
Here's the thing. My kids have the ability to turn any household item into something in reference to Star Wars. Or Minecraft. Or some medieval style story.
Buy a new broom? Kids break it in half (accidently) and use as swords.
Buy a fitball? Son tapes Lego over it and uses it as the Death Star.
Buy a feather duster? Guess what happens..........
The kids decide to chase around the house tickling each other with the soft fluffy end. After several warnings to stop or you'll break it and why don't you actually dust something I hear a big snap and then silence.
"Mum, the feather duster is broken".
Another one bites the dust. Pun intended.
Ten minutes later, the feather duster magically reappears taped together with a note explaining that this is the perfect double bladed lightsaber.
Who am I to argue. They're almost identical.
