The little things

Silly jobs that never get done...
On our wall we have some Beswick Ducks flying along. Now our flat is full of the kitsch and these ducks are no exception. One of the flying fuckers has been just out of formation since being put up. And it bugs the crap out of the both of us whenever we look at it. The trouble is that when we are looking at it we are doing something else... every single time.

So one is giving the other anal retentive in the house the best gift of all... moving the damn thing the 1cm (1/2 inch) that is needed. It’s not quite the gift one planned on giving, but it will give hours of pleasure nevertheless J

Well it will until He notices that particular duck's neck is on a different angle to the rest...

Merry Christmas to you all

Once I was standing with Master staring up at the sky as a flock of Canadian Geese flew overhead. They were honking and cackling in the way that always inspires a sense of wonder. I point up at the big ragged V that is progressing across the sky.

"Master have you ever noticed how one leg of the V is always longer than the other?"

He nods.

"Did you ever wonder why?"

He frowns and looks at me.

I nod filled with inspiration and ancient female wisdom. "There are more geese on that side."

Merry Christmas.
