My friend Hetty

I have a friend called Hetty, she eats dust and doesn’t like to eat sharp things (who can blame her). She is very aesthetically pleasing, with lovely eyelashes, beautiful pink skin and a smile for everyone she meets. She is outgoing and makes a lot of noise but she tends to keep everything important in, she’s not always an easy one to read.

I would hate for any of my friends to be unhappy and do anything hard, like working or cleaning. I especially wouldn’t expect them to do anything for me, such as help out around the house. I mean we are friends and friends don’t force each other to do things they don’t want to! She gets plenty of dust just sitting still, in her nice comfy spot in the spare room.

So that’s why I don’t Hoover. No other reason.

    Lol, Hetty is privileged. I think we must go through vacuum cleaners at the rate of one every 1.5 years! (that’s due to having two dogs and me making lots of crumbs round my reading chair)

      Hehe! Yep, dogs are gorgeous but hairy sofas not so much! 😉 I like the sound of your reading chair, I think I need to get me one of those x

    I’ve only ever known Henry so was a bit confused at first! I actually thought you had a strange dust eating friend.

      Hehe 🙂 I was so happy when I first met Hetty! There’s a blue and green one too but I can’t remember their names x

    I won’t tell you what I call my vacuum cleaner 🙂 lmao
    A great posting this one, but I hope that Hetty is not
    working too hard 🙂
