My dear ladies and occasional gentleman I know you will appreciate a SPOTTED DICK and look how perfectly formed Ronald’s is.
Ronald has been a busy little bee and following on from DECORATING our bedroom and hallway he has now redecorated the kitchen in ‘CHERRY SODA’ and the utility room. So I think you’ll agree he deserved a little treat.
I COOKED a BEEF AND VEGETABLE casserole with DUMPLINGS. Whilst I was making the dumplings into soft round balls, I thought of Ronald and that he deserved a treat, so I steamed him a SPOTTED DICK. It made him very happy.
Hirsute Roley having a post breakfast cuddle on my lap, started barking at a far field where the cows were racing from one side of the field to the other.
Ronald remarked “does he know they’re cows or do they look like dogs to him from this distance?
After reading several articles it appears he may well be seeing them as dogs! Roley along with most dogs sees more movement than size.
If only this applied to humans my dear ladies and occasional gentleman. If we were feeling a little plump, we could just keep moving slightly and everyone would only see the movement and not our expanding waistline.
Men when they wanted to appear bigger would just keep still.
TO VEST OR NOT TO VEST, that is the question? We have had the warmest September since records began, it has been really HOT this week.
Today is the 1st day of October and the WEATHER has turned! It is cloudy and definitely cooler, for the first time this SUMMER I have dressed in LINEN trousers with a 3/4 length sleeve BLOUSE and CARDIGAN.
It is now mid-day and has warmed up, so it looks like October may be warm, hooray!
It may be sometime till I get my VEST out.
RONALD GETS DOWN AND DIRTY & DISPLAYS HIS GENIUS.
Wanting to plant some CABBAGES and CAULIFLOWERS we went to look at some CLOCHES to protect them from the voracious SLUGS and SNAILS.
They are EXPENSIVE almost equalling the cost of a small PRIVATE JET!
Ronald takes control and we head to a CHEAP and CHEERFUL value shop, where whilst I am having a RUMMAGE amongst RIBBONS, TRIMS and CRAFT paraphernalia he FERRETS around trying to discover an alternative.
We check out three £1.00 POP-OUT MESH LAUNDRY BAGS and some GREEN PLASTIC GARDEN PEGS. As we head for the car, it goes through my mind that Ronald may have been watching RE-RUNS of 1970’s BLUE PETER.
Now we know it works, we will return for some to cover the CABBAGES.
I have fallen out with my dear friend Veronica.
She asked Ronald to come around and LOOK at her CRACK!
I was SHOCKED and took UMBRIDGE to this BOLD INTIMATE request, what a HUSSY!
I thought she was my friend and a LADY!
My dear ladies and occasional gentleman, I tell you this SAD tale as a warning.
It turns out, she was DECORATING and had a CRACK in the plastered wall for which she wanted advice on how to deal with it.
Dear Celia, I have just found Ronald’s knob in my car. I think it fell off the rail I borrowed yesterday. I am now tackling my crack. I am ‘doing it myself’! Ronald said to gouge and fill. Yours Veronica
