I had to chuckle!

Picture this ....... my domestic worker making cookies with Miss Tanzi whilst I slog away cleaning her bedroom and sorting out her many toys ..... most of which are no bigger than my thumb nail! (I have a growing dislike for PollyPocket and her miniature world.)
Yip - this took place yesterday afternoon.

Because we were painting Tanzi's room, I took everything out and dumped it on the covered veranda. It had been there since Monday and we were now on Thursday. I had even hinted to Nelly (my helper?) that we were having guests for a braai on Friday and that the area needed to look neat. Due to the sheer magnitude of the task, I am sure she purposely put it off.

So in frustration I got stuck into the millions of toys. Next thing I notice that Nelly and Tanzi are baking biscuits together!!! (mmmmmm ...... that's interesting.)

This is the NEW SOUTH AFRICA .... so they say!

Oh my goodness, I couldn't agree with you more about the Polly Pocket size toys!! My Sweet-Pea doesn't play with Polly Pockets, but she has those Sweet-Street houses and dolls and they're about the same size - maybe a tiny bit smaller. I can't stand it when the pieces are all over the place. I'm waiting for the dog to eat one of the dolls and poop it out so I can prove that they're left all over and she never picks them all up. ha ha I know...eew!! At least they only play with them for a season of their life. One day we'll look back and wish we had those toys all over the place!

Hope you got everything cleaned up.

*lol* I've always hated getting sucked into the world of Tanara's toys and room. She decided to get rid of her Polly Pockets a few months ago. I was CRUSHED, I tell ya! ;)
