As you already know, I had a rather pleasant jaunt in America, but have since returned. The only problem, is that I have got ten hundred million holiday photographs to wade through and stick in various blog posts.
And even though I have been trying to work on the blog posts bit-by-bit every evening, stuff still wasn't getting anywhere fast. So I decided to rope Izzy into some emergency time-saving measures to give me a bit of space.
Pic.No.1 Firstly, instead of slaving over a hot stove, I cunningly gave Izzy a 'Thorntons' Butterfly Easter Egg for her dinner. It took seconds to prepare and was eaten with gusto. Yep, everyone was a winner (the bloody picture was taken with an iPhone instead of my Canon S95 - that's why it was blurry)
Pic.No.2 Secondly, I came up with a innovative way to dry Izzy off after her bath. Instead of laboriously wiping off the water with a towel, I cocooned her in the towel and then agitated her (in an engineering way - which means to 'shake lightly up down'). Bloody triumph! Within seconds she was drier than an AA party
So all in all, it was a bloody marvellous day when it came to maximising efficiencies. I reckon that Izzy and I managed to add a good 23 minutes and 13 seconds onto our day.
But alas, I have still not managed to finish my American blog posts ....... so back to the grindstone tomorrow.
P.S. Have you got any cunning time-saving activities that we could apply?
