It is a late posting
I was up thinking about the French film I have just seen at Theatre Clwyd entitled The Boy with a bike and couldn't quite agree with myself on the review, so I will share with you today's story about the naming of my allotment!
Cro over at magnonsmeanderings.blogspot.co.uk/ is a gentle and cultured old soul who lives in a picturesque part of France. He has three ugly hens, two delightful dogs and a garden folly to die for!
Cro also has an endearing habit of giving "odd" names for family members, friends and inanimate objects ....I think it's a product of good breeding
Anyhow, I have always liked the name he has given to his own allotment.....he calls it "Haddocks!"
Today I bumped into fellow villager Sid as he passed the field with his good natured dogs in tow. We chatted about this and that, and I told him about Cro's amusingly catchy name for his vegetable plot and said I would like to name mine in a similar vein
"what is the criteria for picking the new name?" Sid asked with interest
After thinking about it for a while, I suggested that the name should be slightly ironic, amusing and rather catchy!---" your favourite word!" I then added
I gave him a minute or so to mull it over, then asked him
"Well have you thought of something I could name my allotment?"
"That I have", Sid said after a moment
"Well what is it?" I asked impatiently
"BOSOMS" Sid said with a smile
and so...... BOSOMS it is!
