SOME people are so ungrateful!
You may remember how my best laid plans to buy Carolyn the gift of a lifetime foundered on the rather technical obstacle that she didn’t want it. Stuck for an alternative, fate lent a hand when our washing machine packed in and had to be replaced. So I forked out for a new one, delivered this morning.
Serendipity, quoth I to the Beloved. Not only have I shelled out for a brand new white good, but it’s arrived ages befor the Blessed Day, so consider it an early Christmas present!
(1) Women are unexpectedly ungrateful for kindnesses done to them at this time of year; and
(2) The sofa is not the most comfortable place in the house to sleep.
