Hi little bloggies. I am typing this on Friday the 24th August and will schedule it to reach you on Sunday. As I sit here looking out of the window, we have torrential rain here in Devon - yes, again!
My daughter has been saying to me every day, "90 degrees in Paris. Bright sunshine"!! As you can imagine, this has not really been helping my mood! Anyway, as you read this, I will be travelling back with them in the car, travelling to the sunshine. Well, I can only live in hope. Let's hope that I don't take the English rain over there with me.
I thought I would try to leave you with a smile today, and I have some advice for you on the subject of Dress Code for us slightly older (!) bloggies, as I find that many of us folk of a certain age can be quite confused as to how we should present ourselves to the world.
Feeling 'young', we try to conform to current fashions so that we present a youthful image to the world. Contrary to what you may have seen on the streets, the following combinations DO NOT go together and should be avoided at all costs :-
1. A nose ring and bifocals.
2. Spiked hair and bald spots.
3. A pierced tongue and dentures.
4. Miniskirts and support hose.
5. Ankle bracelets and corn pads.
6. Speedo's and cellulite.
7. A belly button ring and a gall bladder surgery scar.
8. Unbuttoned disco shirts and a heart monitor.
9. Midriff shirts and a midriff bulge.
10. Bikinis and liver spots.
11. Miniskirts and varicose veins.
And, most importantly,(and I'm mentioning no names here!) at some point you just have to give up the 'Daisy Duke' shorts!
So then, I'm hoping that, soon, I shall be lying on a lounger IN THE SUN on daughter's lovely terrasse, with the obligatory glass of Rose` in my hand. Sante`!
Au Revoir, and abientot! Take care my little friends.
