A Visit, a Wind, a Meal, a Glove and the Loch Ness Monster
The weather is cold, I guess I will be saying this a lot at present as winter sneaks up my legs and into my brain. Which in turn means I am not entirely paying attention to the things I should be. One good thing is I have discovered that it is possible to type almost as well in gloves as it is not wearing gloves, and in my case that really means I make loads of mistakes in both cases.
I went to see Mr P in the hospital today, I said both to Mr P and to our friend Mr M that I would pop in while Mr P was still in hospital as he only has a couple of visitors and he has now been in hospital just over a year. The local council seem to be messing him around and don’t seem capable of getting his house in a fit state for him to move into, well it has only been a year so far?
I have heard on the grape vine, another silly saying as communicating on grape vines is seriously flawed (which may be the point of the saying I guess) that it is going to be very windy through the middle of the UK that is the proper middle not the Midlands so sort of south of Edinburgh and just north of Chester. There is some talk of trees and ducks having problems and fake Santa’s may have false beards blown off resulting in traumatized small children who will grow up with a fear of the wind at Christmas parties.
Esmeralda who has featured very little in my diary lately has decided to make a Santa trap to prove once and for all whether Father Christmas is real or not, I have to say the large razor sharp steel jaws she is making in metalwork do not look entirely friendly and her plans do remind me a little of her attempt at catching the Loch Ness Monster with a harpoon gun and depth charges. Even now opinion is divided as too whether her conclusive proof was the monster or 23 fish suppers dropped by a passing hiker who slipped and fell into the Loch as a result of a very loud bang from high explosives going off at a depth of 500ft.
We have just returned from a lovely meal out where we also met a man with his car slightly upside down making it tricky to drive to say the least.
