Postscript


The cottage living room is at it's best in low lighting 
The fire is lit, as are the candles.
The Archers is on the radio.
Winnie is asleep and snoring on the hearth rug.
William and George are on the couch.
Peaceful?
Hell no......
Mary and Albert are wrestling under our bed and by the yapping levels
Albert is winning
Time for a gin and tonic

  16. I don't listen to The Archers any more - too stressy having to listen to Rob Titchner weaving his evil web. A session of animal fisticuffs is much more relaxing.

  21. I had a gin and tonic last week at our teams Xmas lunch. I have a nice bottle of Sapgire gin waiting for me for Xmas with my sister and family in the Subshine Coast hinterland . God I hope I don't collapse before I get there ..... Geez sometimes the lead up to Xmas is like running the marathon , knowing my luck I would collapse 2cm before the finishing line ....

  23. Leisha, we are having subshine here too :)
    All this talk about gin and tonics .. I want to have a drink and be a grown up but living alone with 2 cats, I fear I will look more like an old bag with 2 cats getting drunk.

    1. Who cares what you may look like . There is only you there and your cats , I'm sure they wouldn't judge you . I think if you feel like a gin and tonic have one .

      Tomorrow I will go out and buy gin and tonic and some limes. and chocolate. a lot of chocolate.
      I will be found on the floor in the living room, empty bottles on the table .. chocolate all over my face .. cats looking at me with disgust.

    5. One at least of our cats is very partial to chocolate. So my face would be clean...

  24. I love this post! All comfy and cozy with a couple of pooches having a bark in the background...perfect December night in the Wilds of Wales. Our pooch is snoring in front of the fire, too. Life is good, John, hey?! Now if I could find a Scotch egg in Wisconsin.

  28. No snoring currently happening here, but after a busy morning at fireys I think it might be me 'sawing wood' while having a nice Saturday arvo nap any time now!

    ReplyDelete
  29. I conclude that for Winnie the Albert and Mary feud comes second to the soporific effect of 'The Archers'. Now that I can understand. Just the thought of it has got me yawning.

    ReplyDelete
  30. Ours looked pretty similar last night, although I had Kirstie on the Tele instead of the Archers and the beauty of all the dogs and Ginger being much older than Mary is that all my little four legged friends were snoring happily away :-)

  31. ...Time for a bowl of mini M&S scotch eggs. Scoff em like Maltesers.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Well, it all started off sounding pretty poetic, John.

    ReplyDelete
  33. It's all so poetic. But isn't it always time for a gin & tonic? (Well, except in New England, where it's déclassé except in summer.)
