Dear shopkeepers, It is the 9th of October and yesterday I went to a card shop (actually I ended up looking in three before I found just what I was looking for) to buy two ‘New Baby’ cards. It was hard to locate them amongst all the Christmas cards. It’s ridiculous! Next week you will probably start playing festive music. It is OCTOBER!!
Dear new babies, It is always good to hear of your safe arrival, all healthy and well.
Dear school, It was nice to see so much of you this week, and teach some interesting lessons, although I did feel sorry for the permanent members of staff who, in their sixth week of the new term, were looking quite stressed already.
Dear weather, What is this wet stuff that has been falling from the sky recently? Three days of it at the beginning of the week is quite enough thank you, so can we please get back to dry days and sunshine so that I can get on with working in the garden, and wearing shoes which prefer dry days to wet ones.
Dear laundry, I have said this before, but I feel the need to say it again – why is there always so much of you? Do you breed in the basket??
Dear Savage Chickens, It’s been a while…
