So I slog away at a table in the living room and so our tale begins, when I started doing so, Tipi our baby Warrior Kit decided she is going to leap on TOP of my laptop, never come anywhere near me before (save if I have tuna for sandwiches or casserole) but decides NOW is a great time and she RIPS a tab off my keyboard!
