Unrelated occurrences that have popped into my head this week are
1 Silver Slippers
Im sitting here in my slippers blogging and it occurs to me that I must recommend silver slippers to you
The reason is because you can always see them glinting in the corner of your bedroom, which means you can easily find them in the dark therfore saving on electricity . A little money saving tip. This is a photo of mine so you will know what to buy.
2. Little boys are strange and the Panto.
I don’t have much to do with children. I have several nieces and nephews but they are of the older variety. I had occasion however, to converse with a 7 year old boy whilst watching Celia Lady Garden’s pantomime on Friday. Without warning or prompting he confided in me, in the tea queue that , he was, ‘cool at home’. This statement he accompanied with a strange hand movement which he said was ‘gangster’.
I felt uneasy that gangsters had started to make their way to the village and told him he was too young for all that kind of thing.
I said that I think we are all cool at home but the problem arises when we leave the security of our home . I think he took that little nugget away with him, although I have never managed to be ‘cool’, either at home or otherwise. Mother always saw to that.
Celia Lady Garden s panto was very enjoyable, I must report. She is quite’The Director’ when she is in full flow ,and has managed to whip the entire village into shape.
Her make up skills are legendary with The Young Farmers.
She has apologised for butchering my best frock for the Dame costume and will be unpicking it over the course of next week. It was a shock to see it laying on her kitchen table as she photographed it for her blog.
Also at the panto, my friend Karena was sitting next to a woman who clutched her arm tightly in the interval, and on hearing that Karena had recently retired, extolled the vitues of the jigsaw.
‘They can be very addictive’ she said as she grasped Karena in her vice like grip. ‘I will drop some by when I’m passing’, she threatened.
Karena is dreading a circular one or a 3D one or one of those with the beans on being left on her doorstep.
4. Hogwash soap
Hogwash Soap is coming on at a pace. Mr Perkins has almost finished my web site, and I have been simmering, boiling and stirring all week. It hasn’t stopped me however, and I’m thinking of getting some HRT, as Celia recommends it, although Dr Singh is sceptical
