Due to an adverse combination of weather and working conditions (and possibly planetary alignments), I have decided that today will be devoted to blog and laundry duties. Lucky you for the post, and lucky me for the laundry - my washing machine is in the pub.
In a pathetic attempt to get attention, today I will talk about a variety of things, all of them in bite-sized chunks so as not to lose it as soon as I have gained it. Here goes:
I am bitterly disappointed that my jury service has been cancelled, and I hope that I am randomly selected to sit in on a case in the very near future. (Lie).
I greatly appreciate being reminded of the function of a jury in a courtroom by a trained barrister. (Or should that be, 'barista'?)
My job is of huge value to the community, so it may be for the best that I am not taken out of it to sit on a jury anyway. (Lie).
My job takes up so much of my life, that I do not spend as much time with my grand children as I would like. (2 Lies.)
My weekends are usually taken up with tending my kitchen garden and compiling recipes which I think you may enjoy trying on your families. (What do you think?)
I much prefer reading your posts than writing my own. (Yeah, right.)
The posts that I most enjoy reading are the ones which manage to combine virtual tours of recently re-decorated houses and apartments with the adorable antics of the owner's pets. (Hmm.)
I miss Groucho's contributions. (This was almost true up until yesterday).
I never tire of hearing about goings-on in remote Welsh villages. (This is true so far, but I don't know why.)
I never tire of viewing about 50 telephoto shots of blue-tits feeding on fat balls on a bird table. (True until the 30th shot, when it becomes a LIE.)
I sometimes wish that John's posts contained more fat balls. (Definitely true.)
I sometimes wish that Maryanne's Burlesque posts contained more blue-tits. (What do you think?)
I always read other's posts from beginning to end, no matter how long they are. (Sometimes true).
Ok, that's enough for now. I've got laundry to do.
