'It is a truth universally acknowledged that when one part of your life starts going okay, another falls spectacularly to pieces'
Inspired by the fact that Colin Firth/Mark Darcy/Mr Darcy is adorable and everything that is wonderful, I got out my homework and popped Pride and Prejudice into the DVD player. My mom wandered in with her dustcloth, saw the DVD menu, threw the dustcloth into the air and leapt into the recliner with a surprising agility for someone who's just had a total knee replacement.
"What, you didn't want to do anything, did you?" I said, gesturing to her dustcloth.
"Not for the next five hours, I won't!"
Another triumph for distraction!
