Interesting isn't it when you see the inside of a house that you pass daily. The chimney stack is a beaut innit? Shame it has to come down! The result of a fire is quite awful and a very expensive repair is now required on two or possibly three, listed buildings. The water damage alone will take a while to dry out. The man alleged to be responsible has appeared in court today charged with arson. I suspect we will not see him again for some time.
Today I offer to the pretty young women who frequent this site this bouquet of roses. Women so perfect as yourselves deserve these.
Today, as if you did not know, is another jumped up commercial money grab known worldwide as 'Valentines Day.' The History of this one time saint is obscure, there are at least three of them, and you can take your pick as to which was the one given a backhander to start this codswallop. The whole thing has hung around since the third century or thereabouts making many men guilt riven for not spending enough, spending too much, and no matter what he spends she still blames him and says her mother was right all along! Why do we keep falling for these commercial led emotional robberies? Surely men run after their women all the time? Surely he informs her of his love daily? Surely he has no need to spend cash because the florist says he will not be getting any if he doesn't? Cards, flowers, eating out, events, money, holidays, all for a Valentinius we know nothing about, or if he actually existed! Bah! I will not fall for that!
Naturally when I wandered downstairs to greet the postwoman it goes without saying that she wandered right past my door offering a multitude of reasons why there were no cards, no flowers, no offers of dates, nowt, nil, zilch NOTHING for you! It may of course be the lack of a tip at Christmas might still rankle with her. Whatever I received no cards, again, this year, including the one I sent myself, and have spent the night wandering around restaurants, hanging about the windows holding a large sign saying "Divorced and able to afford TV Football!" In large black letters. This of course is a lie but it's a giggle innit!
