when i'm working flat out (as i am this month getting ready for the devon house show) some things get ignored. it's a long list that includes almost everything but my work. housecleaning. keith. friends. meals. personal appearance. and abigail. she's always watching me. for the nod. time for a walk. for play. i look up from my work and there's a pile of toys she's brought for me - one after the other (is this the one you want?) without me noticing.
