Instead, I shall swiftly move on from this appallingly rambling introduction to Monday’s blog post, and tell you in eloquent and articulate detail about my mother-daughter day with Tiggy last week (Tiggy being my daughter. By which I mean, my dog.) Just don’t hold me to the eloquent and articulate bit, ok?
