Is George Going For A Record?

C – am cleaning and listening to Radio 4. Some woman has made a fortune out of blogging about her dog which sleeps on the end of her bed – a poodle cross something. It is rather too gooey for me – look her up blog; it is called Plumdog or some such.

S – have looked at blog – she is an illustrator and it does look rather appealing – maybe that is what we need – an illustrator to fluff up our blog!!

S – made a casserole for the five of us. I went to the neighbours for a drink with my sister (had one too many, of course). Came home and three people have eaten the casserole for five! How does that work? Christina and I now have to have cottage cheese and salad!!!

C – it works no better in my house. Home at five then straight back out with Phoebe to riding lesson. Got home and Toby asleep in the chair – I now have to cook something and do the washing up! Just think of the calories saved by eating cottage cheese instead of casserole. Am off to bed, as Toby watching the golf and it is like watching paint dry – hell’s teeth.

S – am doing extra day at estate agents but only have one viewing booked. Was just about to go out when Laura said she would do the viewing as everyone gets lost in Stinsford! How the hell can anyone get lost going to (or in) Stinsford – sneeze and you would miss it. I did not argue with her as I could not be bothered, so here I am doing bloody call outs.

C – silly cow. Well, that is one for the blog – must make sure we put a link to Stinsford in it for those who do not live in Dorset. Have just seen one of our followers – she spotted me across the car park in Tesco’s and shouted “I hope that is not wine in that bag”, to which I replied, “Oh no, it is mineral water”. My nose is getting very long.

Later …

C – just had a text from Diane in Australia – Goerge got a ticket for driving without wearing a seat belt while he was over there, and it has just fluttered onto her doormat – he was using her utility when he was working for her. I have to pay $100 otherwise he will not be able to return to Oz.

S – is that boy going for some sort of record? That is the third continent on which he has managed to be fined for not wearing a seat belt!!

C – I think he is – it is like throwing money I do not have away. With Toby at it as well I am beside myslef.


Could Be Heading Down The Same Path As “Older” Korean Women!

It's in the name!

It’s in the name!

24 April 2014

C – listening to the radio whilst scrubbing and cleaning, as usual. Discussion being had about the reason for the increase in “older” Korean women turning to prostitution – could it be money?

S – well, I suppose they are able to earn more in twenty minutes than they would working all day in another job.

C – twenty minutes sounds a long time. I would have thought ten minutes would be ample.

S – yes, you are right, ten minutes is plenty of time.

Later …

S – lady you clean for is in the office today. She is very attractive and normally wears nice clothes but today she has definitely “lost the plot” and is wearing skinny jeans – I am sorry but you have to be skinny to wear skinny jeans; it’s in the name. Still, I suppose we all have those items in our wardrobe that we should really never have purchased!

C – I don’t have that problem as there are so few items in my wardrobe! I have just been looking at my credit card bill and think I will, unfortunately, be going down the same road as the aging Korean ladies soon. Every time I turn round someone else has got their fingers in my purse, and that includes Toby! 😦

We Need To Get Down And Dirty

How dirty do we need to get?

How dirty do we need to get?

S – great programme on Woman’s Hour the other day; yes, I have been converted. They were talking about a very successful novelist who spent a great deal of time struggling to get published, and was surrounded by weak men. Her novel is called Hester, can you Google it if you get time, as not sure of the author’s name. It may provide us with some useful tips.

C – ok, had to text you as I think the New Year is looking up. I was busy dusting and polishing for Mrs P when I noticed a copy of the Radio Times, announcing a new series of Birds of a Feather – must see viewing – thank you ITV.

S – brilliant news but I have a feeling it may clash with Silent Witness, typical of the BBC, they can never get anything quite right.

C – do you think someone will want to make a TV series of our blog. I can see it now. Two country ladies from rural Dorset, finding themselves on the bones of their asses who start blogging to make ends meet. What happens next?

S – well, lots of friends I have spoken to have been very supportive and are enjoying our posts, but the underlying advice is that we need to get a bit more controversial and “down and dirty” – any ideas?

C – I hope, of course, you are speaking metaphorically!! I think we need to do much more research into this before we commit to anything we may regret.

27 December 2013

S – as suggested am giving Radio 4 a try and heard an interesting discussion. Some scientists decided to do a study to see if couples could be happier if they did not argue. It was decided that the husbands would agree to everything that the wives said and wanted. After a short time happiness was measured and had increased slightly in the women. However, after twelve days the study had to be abandoned as the men fell into deep depression. Oh well!!

C – oh well, exactly – what a surprise! It is my first morning at the new clean in Dorchester. Everything wonderful; house and garden beautiful – all that money can buy. Racks full of wine and was just vacuuming the sitting room when the door bell rang. Yet another huge box of wine being delivered – they are definitely sipping their wine, not tipping it down their necks!! We need to adopt this attitude to wine consumption.

S – I agree entirely, if the last week is anything to go by. How are the scars healing up?

C – oh not to bad, must not crumble. Have been busy changing over the house today with the girls, everyone a bit subdued must be the Post Christmas Blues, or is it that we are all exhausted with the preparations before hand. I think we should have a year off. What do you think?
