I originally wrote this post especially to feature on the excellent “Rookie Mistakes” feature on Claire’s blog “Life, Love and Dirty Dishes”. See my post on her blog here
The story that follows is in fact the third of three ideas I had for this post. I ran all the ideas past a friend and fellow blogger (Luisa @ Teach Tiny Minds), who informed me that I’d probably get Social Services knocking on my door if I published either of the first two. So I’m afraid that, for now at least, you’re stuck with my rookie mistake number three.
