Sadly, nothing.

Sometimes on a weekend when the kids ask what we will be doing that day I callously say "Sadly, nothing" in order to prepare them for the brutality of a day that will be spent around the house doing odds and ends and chores. Normally Archie will throw himself down crying "Why nothing? Why? Why?" in amongst his crocodile tears but today a new maturity showed itself as he wondered about repeating "Sadly. Nothing" in various intonations to get as much humour out of it at my expense as he could. Wish I had it on video.
