Edith's beauty regime

I got back from a run on Friday to find Helen just finishing up a major cleaning exercise. Edith, who was supposed to be asleep, had suddenly started howling. Helen went to see what the cause of this major meltdown was and found Edith sitting in bed with her legs plastered in sudocrem. Sudocrem is a thick white creme which you can use to stopping babies getting chaffed bottoms etc. Clag it on your legs and its not going to do much good. Helen enquired why Edith was sitting in bed with now filthy sheets and legs covered in several millimetres of gloop. "I wanted to make my legs lovely" she wailed. Apparently it took ages to get the muck off in the shower and she still looked distinctly pasty.
