I was intending running with a ‘I can’t think of anything to post right now’ post tonight because, truth be told, the muse really has pitched up elsewhere for the last few days. Not for lack of material but just the ability to link A and B together and get a decent hook line in there.
However unexpected salvation has come via the most excellent proprietor of ‘Letters from a Tory’ who has tagged me to a meme on ‘Seven good things in life’.
In no particular order
1 – Writing that killer post, where the jokes and slightly obscure references come together and to which you receive more than 0 comments. Similar to figuring out that guitar riff or finally twigging the general theory of relativity.
2 - Ones children. Yes I know an obvious response.
3 – Occasionally having a few hours without ones children. Not at all contradictory to item 2
4 – Watching Football – Well actually it’s the walk to the ground / pub that’s also special. The building of anticipation before the event when any result is still possible. Oh and on a wish list Arsenal to beat Tottenham on the final day of the season to secure a league title whilst ensuring the tiny totts relegation.
5 – Laying on ones back with a few cans in a field or garden at night picking out galaxies, constellations, stars and planets whilst recognising and feeling secure in your utter insignificance.
6 – Enjoying trencherdom. Preferably involving a beer at about 4.5%, slabs of cured pig flesh and cheese and a variety of pickles. And gherkins. And olives. And ever so slightly salted butter. And the warm fresh bread.mmmmmmm bread
7 - Election nights. Booking the Friday off work so you can stay up all night. Playing with the swingometers on various news outlets websites. So what would a 0% Labour vote mean then? Hoping against hope that Pickfords will have a special job to do in about 18 months time.
And now for the schadenfreude.Or anyone elses come to that.
