The builders have gone !! It’s Friday evening and they won’t be back until Monday morning when I will be woken up with the dawn chorus of the jack hammer. Cockerels and the small twittering birds will cower at the blasting rattle which will resound throughout the village. But I will awake with a gentle yawn. The cats snuggled into me will jump three feet into the air and begin their morning aerobics across my hair and face as if to say, “Please get up Daddy. We want to play with you”.
Sixty hours until that wonderful music, which sounds so much nicer than the teenagers’ noise from their Ghetto Blasters in their cars. Sixty hours to go. Two and a half days of deafening peace. What will I do for all that time?
I could write a poem:
There was a “young” blogger called Ralph
Whose weekend was spent by himself.
He will twiddle his thumbs
Play with his joystick and plums
But he will probably end up on the shelf.
(That’s 448 Followers gone 🙂 )
Poetry aside. I could go for a walk. I am training Star to wear a harness so that I can take her with me ( like you do Sir ). At the moment I am letting her play with it and letting her get used to putting one loop over her head. I think it may be a few days before I can fully harness her as I don’t want my arms ripped to bits. Or I could twiddle my thumbs !!
