Candle Overload



Last night I put a request on the village what’s app group
I didn’t  need food or pet stuff or logs
No
I needed what all good homosexual middle aged men need when they are isolating with flatulent bulldogs
in a very small cottage
Yes,I put a request out for.......
Scented candles!!!!!
The great and the good of Trelawnyd (Nick&Linda, Bunty,Tracey Manchester, Heulwen,Mrs Trellis etc) jumped to the challenge and now I have a whole shopsworth of candles to play with over the next few days
“ The place will look like a friggin Church,” one wag told me when I showed him the collection and was suitable moved when I showed him the other kind donations ...namely homemade soup, sweets, biscuits, a jigsaw, baguettes and butter, flowers all left on the kitchen wall


I will leave you with wonderfully light video....it will bring a smile to any face
She’s having a blast!

  5. The world's problems seem so overwhelming, caring people are eager to help in solving a problem as simple as the needs of a middle-aged homosexual man isolating with a flatulent bulldog. I would be leaving an offering on the Magic Garden Wall myself, if I lived there. It would make me feel so much better to do something definitively positive.

    Love that dancing... I’m not a good dancer but have always fancied being in some sort of ‘flash mob’ of singing or dancing xx

  7. Re. the dance video, it is worth remembering that life does not stop at 50 or 60 and the young do not have a monopoly on enjoyment.

  8. That's one of my favourite pieces of music; just finished - in the last- five minutes watching and listening to it again where the staff of a wildlife place in Africa are dancing in among the rhinos - wonderful. You can never have too many candles (they don't go off)

      Just saw that yesterday. It's the best so far. That group has a few...the one with giraffes and hippos is great. The animals are curious & confused by what they're seeing. Pat

    hey anonymous - instead of bitching, try leaving john a present; you might become a better person for it.

    Love the big hearted folks who are your fellow villagers and who leave delightful needed and wonderful things on your kitchen wall.

    Oh, yes, in the presence of flatulent canines in enclosed spaces, scented candles are definitely life-savers!

    Jazzy video, too. :)

    Hugs!

  12. If you ask me....theres no such thing as to many candles and flowers in a home. Most nights my place looks like a seance is going on.

  13. Music and line dancing - make for good times. Nice collection of scented candles and all those goodies. You are well loved.

  15. You'll be OK if there's a power cut! Give me the Malteasers and I'll open a window!

  16. Great smells, and dance like no one is watching

  17. Well, I was going to give you shit about stereotyping (no I wasn't). How do YOU know what ALL good homosexual middle aged men need when they are isolating with flatulent bulldogs in a very small cottage? But Then I thought about it and figured you're probably right. Then again, that COULD be said for anyone isolating with flatulent bulldogs in a very small cottage.

    why didn't you people protest against the lockdown back in April? As a result, your children and grandchildren are suffering tremendously. 50% of kids 21 and under have had suicidal thoughts caused by the lockdown. This lockdown is doing tremendous lifelong psychological damage to children. And you people are such cowards that you didn't go out and PROTEST against the lockdown? You fully deserve the coming collapse of society and the economy. This is your karma for betraying your own children. God is going to punish you for being so selfish, cowardly, and weak!

  20. Candles, number one treat in my book. You and your readers have reminded me to drop off some care packages to some folks.

  21. I loved to read about Weaver's interactions with the people of her village. I love reading about yours. In the end I think that it will be kindness that gets us all through these difficult times. Reading about things like this makes me resolve to be a better neighbor.

  22. It's very stinky here John-my poor lily has an ongoing problem much worse than the boys but she did have severe pancreatitis x

  23. John, I love your blog...the music you use ( very heartfelt ) and your love of animals and people. Don't you think that the "anonymous " person is just a sad irritating arsehole that has nothing better to do than try to hurt you?... They obviously don't know how much you are loved virtually by us all, shame you can't just block them and let us all enjoy your wonderful blog...take care sue xx

  25. I love the video. If only I had some of her rhythm.

  26. Nice, but I'm afraid that if I had all those candles in my small apartment, it would set off the smoke alarm.

  27. Yet again this video doesn't work on my laptop [though SOME do]. Must be at my end as no one else seems to point out a problem.

  28. Lovely selection of candles, I just finished of a bag of Maltesers, you can't eat just one. I love this dance tune and the many videos out there with new ones added from far and wide, but this lady teaches us a lesson your never to old.

  29. Love that video. Can I suggest a song which is always a wonderful pick up for me. Brings back memories of one of my favourite cities - Mexico City. On one of my visits this video was frequently playing on the metro bus screen.

  31. Didn't you buy any in Ikea? I thought it was mandatory?

    ReplyDelete
  32. I enjoy having candles burning in my 'cottage' on these Autumn evenings, plus I have IKEA lanterns with candles hanging in my massive fig tree (now leafless) in the front garden, and up the front steps. I'm all for lighting up the night!

    I would love to take dancing lessons from that lovely lady - she's great!
