The blue circle on my screen twirls and twirls. The game is taking an awfully long time to load. Although I am starting to feel a little frustrated, wondering if my tablet's operating system will be too slow to handle running the game, I wait patiently as I watch the dots swirl around continuously.

The land-line phone downstairs starts its shrill ringing and I jump with fright. The sound is loud in the otherwise silent house.

Quickly I throw the blankets off me and cover Salem in the process.

Sidestepping the corner of my bed and running down the stairs, I reach the phone in the kitchen just as it stops ringing.

I decide to get something to eat, before I go back upstairs and just as I open the fridge, the phone starts to ring again.

Picking up the phone, I say, "Hello."

My mum asks, "Are you up yet?"

Obviously. "I am."

"Please do me a favour. I left in a hurry this morning, and I forgot to take meat out of the freezer."

"What must I get out?"

"I don't know. What do you feel like having for dinner?"

If it was up to me, I would definitely want Pizza for dinner, but having takeaways are reserved for Friday nights only. "Maybe Spaghetti?"

My mum sounds unsure. "I don't know."

I lean against the kitchen counter as I wait for her to decide.

She says, "Okay. Take out the mince, will you please?"
