"Well, there is only one piece of advice I can give you," said the wisest of wise men. "The secret of happiness is to see all the marvels of the world and never to forget the drops of oil on the spoon."

Losing it

It's getting to me already! This morning I dashed out of the house at 7.15, jumped into the car and drove off to work...
About half a mile into my journey, happening to glance down at my feet I noticed that they were still encased in slippers, a dark, discreet navy blue, but slippers nontheless.
A rapid about-turn (no screech of brakes), back to the house, nearly giving Keith a heart attack as I burst in, unannounced and unexpected through the door, a few seconds to change and give him the chance to demonstrate his hysterical amusement and I was off again, but this time, just too late to avoid the worst of the traffic queues.

Think I can beat that. Mrs P went to grab some groceries tonight. I get a phone call saying that she is at the checkout -- without her handbag.

Jenny, my dear sweet girl. Do you know it's been a week now since you've posted something new?

We miss you. Or as the Welsh might say, "Wyxztrpjhyrs mbgrt xqr!"

Ellee said...

Oh dear, I know the feeling, hope the day - and the week - was less chaotic.

Jennyta said...

Nice to be missed, Dale. Amazing how much progress you've made with the Welsh language too!
