"I'll admit I may have seen better days,
but I'm still not to be had for the price of a cocktail,
like a salted
Like the meaning of the song Send In The Clowns, I’ve always been baffled of just how untidy my cottage becomes when I am on a run of long shifts.
Isn't it bliss?Don't you approve?Sounds like lines from a TV commercial for some cleaning product - perhaps "Flash"... but never in public!
I see you and I hear Elaine page ….or visa versa ?
I bet the new bathroom is kept spotless, though.
You could eat a scotch egg off that big seat
I seem to have become a lady of a disorderly establishment x
Lol that amused me
I enjoy days like that.
We gays don’t, don’t we? Lol
I too was baffled by the lyrics of Send In The Clowns for years until I saw a production of its origin, the musical A Little Night Music - it was a revelation, the words made complete sense. I think you’d enjoy the show, if you’ve not already seen it. Happy Birthday in advance for Wednesday!
It's one of those things that has occurred to me when hearing the song, but reading about it really was a revelation. Thanks for finally sending me off to discover that, Anonymous.
For lyrics, Sondheim was incomparable - probably in songwriting history, or at the very least the equal of Cole Porter.
Tell me what send in the clowns mean Raymondo
"When I find out I'll let you know, JayGee :-)
A good cleaning and sorting out day is good for the soul isn't it ... if only things would stay in cleaned up, sorted out condition.
I loved visiting your home, it’s a delight ……homely and bloody spotless
I am remarkably at peace, amongst chaos.
I’ve met u , I’m not surprised
Made me smile, if only we could meet ourselves
How do things go from sparkling to dusty in a matter of 2 days? I cleaned yesterday and in 2 days the process repeats. Sparkling clean feels so good....
With a log burner the soot accumulates in minutes
I, too, marvel at the dust that accumulates in such a short it. What puzzles me more is how fabric - sitting on a shelf or tucked into a srawer ravels along its cut edges despite being untouched. Methinks it's the rotation of the earrth. Any other ideas?Hugs!
Babs , your brain is full lol
Treat yourself to some nice underwear. Please.
And a hamper for the used items.
Lol ok mum
I love cleaning. As you said, it's both mindless and mindful.
And it’s a control thing
Part of me sides with Quentin Crisp — 'There is no need to do any housework at all. After the first four years the dirt doesn't get any worse.' Although there is that nice, smug feeling when everything is clean and tidy and you survey your handiwork. xx
He lived like a tramp and indeed looked like one
Just how I feel John. To me there is nothing more satisfying that everywhere smelling, looking and feeling clean, fresh flowers in the window, washing done, aired and put away. Now I can do none of it myself it still gives me satisfaction to get the feeling and see it all.
Funnily pat, after my “ date” I bought a bunch of flowers and put them in THE vase on the kitchen window where my flowers always sit……wonderful feeling x
The words of Send in the Clowns make perfect sense in the context of the show - it’s a powerful moment and very moving. Bel-Ami
I knew my post would “ upset u “ lol …can you give me a précis of the meaning x
Sondheim said Send in the Clowns connects to the theatre reference “If the show isn’t going well, send in the clowns.” He said the word “fools” would be more appropriate but not as musical. In this case “we are the fools.” (i.e., They’re already here.)
Never liked the song Send in the clowns for some reason always found it creepy. Your very organised in your housework on your days off. Irene
