Farmer Duck

One of the most loved books in our bookcase is the story of Farmer Duck by Martin Waddell. Farmer Duck lives with a very lazy farmer who sits in bed all day eating chocolate, while poor Farmer Duck does all the work around the farm.

All day, the farmer calls from his bed..."How goes the work?" and all day the Duck answers "Quack", while picking the fruit and ploughing the fields and doing the dishes.

Why am I sharing this with you today?

Well, eventually the Duck is totally exhausted from doing all that work....he is, in fact, "sleepy, and weepy, and tired".

And that is just exactly how I feel today.

An early night might be a good idea for this little duck :)
