Tuesday 15 Apr

That time of year again.

vegetable_gardenWell, the wheel of the year has turned yet again, Ostara has come and gone,(20 March) and it will soon be Beltane. (1st May, MY BIRTHDAY, hint!).

Everything in the garden needs a severe looking at since the recent wet spell. Not my garden, mine has reverted back to the jungle, but my sisters and her partners (see pic) seems to be well on the way to producing some goodies. They have gone to their little house near Brive for two months to open up and re-decorate their dump of a little French cottage. OK, so I’m jealous.

This time of year I shall have to spend more time in the garden and clear away the brambles and bindweed. The lawn has turned into a meadow that any farmer would be proud of. All this coupled with my household chores here doesn’t leave me much time to play around with the computer.

What I really need is a domestic goddess to live with me, then she can do the little jobs like cooking, cleaning, washing, decorating, ironing, gardening, etc., while I get on with the important tasks like computing, watching TV, going out with the lads to the pub and generally socialising.

Is there a nice young lady out there in Bloggyland who fancys the job? Free board and lodging? No?

The last woman who lived with me was unbelievably lazy. Most mornings I had to shout several times for her to come upstairs to wash and dress me! Tut!

    Have you put an add in the paper? ha. I would think just one taste of your cooking and any eligible lady would propose to you! 🙂

    Where I live, we won’t be putting a garden in until late May. There is always a danger of frost until then.

    And here I thought you birthday was May 2nd! I’m so glad you cleared that up! Need to chip chop if I’m going to get that cake in the mail! ha.

    Be careful about sending any type of food to Britain, the Custom’s men are a bit strict about that. Just put “2 pounds of Semtex, detonator and timing device” on the declaration form and they will laugh and think it’s a joke and send it on without checking. I bought some San Francisco sourdough bread starter from that famous Bakery there. It never arrived, it was confiscated by our customs, I bet they thought that the dried starter was some form of drug. Swines!

    Both birthdays days are right. I explained in the email. I did think of putting some geraniums out today because the weather was so nice, but the weatherman on TV said “No, don’t do it Keith, cos there’s going to be a severe frost tonight”. So I didn’t. – Keith.

    Since it would mean living in England, add me to the ever growing (it is growing, right?) interview list!

    So far you are the second applicant, if you care to send me a CV I will arrange an interview. England is the worst country in the EU to live. It is overrun with immigrants. The Health Service is collapsing, income is low, taxes are the highest in the EU, prices of fuel, gas, electric have rocketed.This is a terrible place to live now the politicians have ruined it. France has been voted as the best place in the northern hemisphere to live. – Keith.

    Damn it. I can’t apply. This employ would leave me no time for computing, watching TV and going out with the lads to the pub.
    I’m so sorry to have to pass up this golden opportunity.

    . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
    Oh dear, I was rather hoping that you would see your way clear to making a lonely old millionaire happy in his twilight years. Ah well, I will have to leave my car collection, yacht, mansion and vast fortune to the Cats Home then. – Keith.

    • I’m dressing up as a woman, wearing my wig, and changing my name to Scarlet. I shall be with you shortly, darling!
      Of course I need a new car, some new jewelery, a new set of clothes, and a massive private income! What time would you suggest I come?

  4. A man’s work is never done, would you not agree, Keith?
    I have already advertised for such a lady and so far they have not accepted the bait. They don’t know what they are missing! lol
    I have started venturing into the garden myself so the weather must be improving.

    Scarlet may change her mind!

    You’re right Eddie, women just don’t understand that life is hard and cruel for a man living on his own, struggling to cope with the daily humdrum routine, which to a woman doing the shopping, washing, ironing, cooking etc., comes naturally. . . . . – Keith.

    H’m. In our household, I do the computing, TV watching and occasionally the going to the pub, as well as the cooking, cleaning, gardening etc. My husband’s speciality is general socialising. Indeed, he’s out at a funeral right now, doing just that.

    . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
    You certainly have the right qualifications to be my carer and companion, but as you said, you are already committed. Well, there’s nothing for it, I will have to go to the Market Place in Pompeii and see what’s on offer at the weekly slave market. I fancy a nice Persian girl. – Keith.
