The octopus arrived in the post.
A lovely gift which doubles as a dog lead holder.
I liked the shape and form so I’ve placed him on the front of the cottage,
Warming on the stone like some strange autumn insect
“ Oh what’s that?” asked Mrs Trellis as she passed with blue
I was standing back admiring my Crustacean, so she was instantly intrigued
“ It’s an octopus”I told her and she nodded seriously, as if it was perfectly normal to nail an octopus to the side of your cottage.
“ I like your rainbow too “ she commented , pointing to the knitted one up in my bedroom window
“ Is that a thank you to the NHS ?” She asked
“ No it’s a nod to a LGBTQ household” I told her playfully
“ And which letter are you? “ she shot back with a smile
