A Man Who Knows…

Mr L rang last night. He said he was sitting on Preston station. It wasn’t yet 10pm. How come? He was supposed to be killing time in Manc, where there would be plenty to do.

“Manc was horribly depressing: too many people, and full of drunks. So I thought I’d get the train to Preston and wait here instead. But Preston is full of drunks too and there’s a bouncer outside every pub so I didn’t go in…”

Okayyyyy. But what about dinner? Had  he had his dinner?

“I had a pint in Wetherspoons in Manchester”

But what had he eaten – the Thursday Curry Club, perhaps?

“I just had a sausage roll.”

But he needs more than that if he’s travelling all night!

“I didn’t feel like eating…”

There was a short pause, during which I heard girly squealing…

“They have those girls here, like in Leeds.”

Ah, he means the ones that go out with no clothes on… they pour out of the trains at Leeds, on their way to the clubs, at an hour when normal people are going home.

“It’s horrible.”

I smiled, thinking that many men of his age would be enjoying that scenery. We returned to the subject of dinner:

“I haven’t enjoyed anything all week. I don’t want to eat. I miss your cooking.”

How’s that for an endorsement?

I do like a man who knows which side his bread is buttered  🙂

I also like a man who knows how to do a proper compliment and make a wife feel properly valued. I knew what I was doing when I picked this one. Oh, yes.

And now I am REALLY pissed off that the chocolates I ordered to welcome him home with have not arrived. (Ah well, it will have to be the BJ, I guess.)

A Month in France: Nothing is Lost

A Month in France: Nothing is Lost

I am lagging on the Month in the Country prompts, and lagging badly at that. I have a list of prompts t be caught up on and I shall be working my way through them here, or at Scattered Thoughts depending on where the post most naturally sits. I have elected to tackle the prompts not in date order necessarily but to seize upon prompts that offer me space in which to write down the things that I am feeling the need to say. Even if I need to crowbar it in. The thing is, I am going to continue to be short of time and space in which to write and so a two-for-one is useful and I hope to do as many of those as I can. Seems like a plan? … Continue readingA Month in France: Nothing is Lost

Oh, deer

Nell and I had a lovely walk this morning. The weather has cooled considerably and there was a very pleasant breeze. We both made better time than of late. … Continue readingOh, deer
