Also and too…remember my stories about Maggie the magpie, her crippled leg and her new-found toyboy.
Well, I went down the garden today to inspect our newly installed shed and I heard a bit of a ruckus on the roof. Imagine my delight as I peered heavenwards to find Maggie, toyboy and three baby magpies on my chimney.
Life doesn’t get much better than that. And fuck the rats, I am going to throw more bread on the roof. Don’t tell my husband.
Also and too…this can get repetitive I know!
At 10.30 this morning, I went into my neighbour’s house to invite her in for a cup of tea. That lazy woman was in bed. Her husband let me in and went upstairs to wake her up. Now to be fair, she is 78 and plays more golf than trump. She came downstairs in her dressing gown and I said to her – come in an look at my new shed. I knew that would entice her. I’m in my dressing gown she said. I said – who cares. She said, ok. Just give me a minute. So I gave her a minute and she came downstairs in her dressing gown and a very enticing shade of lipstick. Even her husband laughed and men don’t notice these things.
The sun is shining and we sit on the patio. It had rained last night and the chairs were a bit wet so I threw a couple of towels on them that she had given me years ago. We are neighbours and nothing goes to waste…
I still have the rotating Xmas cake tin that she gave me .
Anyway, four hours later, she exits my house. We had discussed everything under the sun. She is still in her dressing gown, but the lipstick had lost its gloss. I live on a very busy road. People would notice someone wandering around in their night clothes because the traffic can be at a stand still.
At this stage, I am starving and need sustenance so I walk down to the local shop to buy cigarettes. I did the same walk yesterday and happened to meet a lovely young man who works in the shop. He does the vaping thing and I asked him about it. We had a lengthy discussion and he promised to give me more info on it.
So…I am walking back to the house, armed with coleslaw and cigarettes and I see someone walking against me surrounded by a plume of smoke. As we got closer, we both recognized each other and we literally fell around the place laughing. He was vaping and heading off to work in the shop.
He is a student and he is damn gorgeous. He wears his hair in a bun and has perfect teeth.
That has been my Saturday so far.
