...finish the box of chocolate almonds before anyone else has had a chance to try one (oops, too late!);
...talk about TLM in front of her, as though she can't understand just about every word we're saying;
...offer to take my mum to the supermarket, then complain when she takes as long as she usually takes;
...let TLM eat too many gingerbread Christmas tree cookies, because if she has one before breakfast I'll end up eating her toast;
...moan and groan and roll my eyes just because the boy wants us to watch the third Pirates of the Carribbean together;
...pretend to still have a bad back, just to get out of housework - at least, stop doing it after Christmas;
...forget that I'm very, very lucky to have the life I do.
