A Sit Down Protest


The Kitchen Sofa Stays

Bert is in turmoil. See him bite his lip as he ponders his many worries.

That sofa they're all sitting on was top of my list for the bonfire. I wanted to discourage hordes of long-legged men from sitting about my kitchen impeding me from going about my housewifely business. Yes Clint, yes Young Lothario, yes Rodders - I'm talking about you. At least Ian sits on a hard chair with his legs tucked under the kitchen table.

But with Bert in turmoil I have decided that I cannot deprive him of his comfy sofa.

And now he has found a home for the spare den chair that was also destined for the fire. Apparently Dee Mac wants a comfy chair for her polytunnel. She says it's for her dog Herman. Mmmm.

This bonfire is getting smaller by the minute.

This is a great picture, so much that I had to take a look at your other pictures. They're charming. I enjoy reading your blog--you've got a great perspective on the world. I feel transported when I read it.

Gee thanks - is it the Irish thing or is it because I'm living proof that the perimenopause can be fun?

That's a good question. I do have a special place in my heart for "Irish things", but it's also your wonderful writing style, the language you choose, and the moments in your life are so very different from mine.

The perimenopause factor adds to your perspective on life--I love it.
