Well..., here broke a day when the children dozed off to sleep that I thought I might take the time to do my legs really quickly...so I slathered on the delapidator on both legs and sat in an empty bath while I surfed the net on my fone...the box said that the veet should stay on for 5 minutes or elongated to 10 minutes BUT NO FURTHER....Weeellll I was safe. After a good five minutes had passed, I settled in for the remaining 5. At 7 and a half minutes, the little one started crying...! So I called from the bathroom...'don't worry baby Mummy's coming' hoping that would settle her, but no, no it did not.
Hoping that she didn't wake up big brother I ran to her side and started patting her chest so that she would go back to sleep...she stopped crying but she definitely was NOT going back to sleep...and it was going for a good 13 minutes for my legs...I wondered what on earth was going to happen if according to the box...it WAS left for more that 10 minutes, it was at that point that my legs started BURNING!
Anyway...she settled I jumped in the bath, grabbed the scraper thing and frantically scrapped off one leg,
ran back to baby, ran back to bath to scrape off other leg,
ran back to baby, ran back to bath to run scathingly hot water over my legs and into the bath,
ran back to baby, jump in the bath and soap my legs, SQUIRM in agony as the soap seeps into all the cuts and scrapes on my legs from the frantick-ness of it all...rinse, towel dry and
RUN BACK TO BABY.
Picked baby up: MISSION ACCOMPLISHED. Big brothert toddler still FAST ASLEEP.
I do still have my legs and they are working juuuusssst fine. Whether the dilapidator worked...who knows?
