Once more, Lady Muck sat idly all day today. I imagine she must have just polished her nails and watched TV. She certainly didn't do three loads of washing! Neither did she hang it out, get it in, iron it, and neither, by the same token, did she cut two hedges. The sorcerer's electrical apprentice did it again.
Lady Muck dislikes that apprentice - while she endeavours to laze around pretending to be kept in the style to which she ought to be accustomed, he keeps dragging her into things. It seems he can't do anything unaided.
However, Lady Muck would like it to be known that she did swim 30 lengths all by herself (apart from the efforts of the pool lights, chlorination unit and sundry other services), and, after "helping" the E-apprentice with the hedge-cutting, she now aches all over and is disinclined to do anything else at all!
