Those around me:
My husband, the Sage.
Dearest daughter Weeza, who has London Ways, is married to Phil. Their daughter is Zerlina Buttercup and their son is Augustus Bufo.
Elder son - Al X, is married to Dilly. Their children are Squiffany Virgilia, Maximus Pugsley and Hadrian Swallow.
Younger son - Ro and his girlfriend Dora.
Big Sister - Wink. She lives in Wiltshire, 230 miles away, but we're much closer than that. She has a friend, Bod. Sometimes I go on holiday with them.
We share our home with about 30 chickens, most of them bantams, and one cockerel who rules the roost. Big Pinkie, an elderly cow, comes to visit during the summer and brings a few friends.
Delightful people with a little too much time on their hands
Oh, what's the problem? This is hardly Great Literature. I'd appreciate anything taken from here being acknowledged, and I might change my mind if I'm suddenly proclaimed as the Literary Queen of the Blogosphere - but I probably wouldn't. Do what you like, just as long as it doesn't extend to defamation of anyone, even me.
Actually, you want to pass off what I say as your own, I might even be flattered. Let's face it, who cares anyway?
