Procrastinating - again!

Right now I should be trying to think of something to do with 35 mothers and at least 35 toddlers tomorrow morning. I am supposed to be doing a program focusing on the mothers and getting them to make friends etc. with each other and ignoring the children. Problem..... there are at least 35 toddlers (and I mean toddlers, not small children) in the room (not a huge room at that) at the same time who really don't care if their mothers are having fun or not. How I manage to get myself into these situations time and time again I have no idea!
Anyway, as a way to avoid thinking about that for a while I thought I would share a bit of wonderful English on a small container I bought today - I think perhaps the translator had a small child on her knee who she had just been reading a fun kid's book to when she was translating it! Quite appropriate considering it is "Setsubun" here today where the ogres are all out and about.
