Evelyn's excuses as to why she couldn't go to nursery today.

"Some snakes came in the night and ate off the bit of my legs that lets me walk."

"My legs told me in my sleep that they weren't going to work on Wednesdays ever again."

"A man told me that he's going to bring us a parcel today so we have to stay in all day because we don't know when he will come. He could be on his way right now. I bet it's something important like jelly."

"My legs told me they don't want to go." 

"Everyone who works at nursery is poorly so they said that nursery will be open on Sunday instead and I can stay here, eat my chocolate raisins and do my puzzles. Doesn't that sound like a plan we'll both enjoy?"

Microphone in the sky

Evelyn: I wish there was a microphone up in the sky, because sometimes you cry when someone dies and if there was a microphone up there, you'd still be able to talk to them and wouldn't be as sad. 

Me: That's a lovely thought Evelyn.

Evelyn: If I had a wish I'd make that my wish. 

Me: You're such a lovely person, Evelyn. 

Evelyn: Yes and I was your wish wasn't I. 

Me: You were. You were my wish every night before I went to bed.
