Another Collage!!!

Ihave been unwell this week, meaning the post I meant to bring you is still languishing in my notebook, unfinished and untyped. You are not missing much. There are two references to chocolate, and something about having several flirtatious encounters by 1pm. Nothing new there then. I believe I began writing this post back in May, what are the chances of me finishing it in time for next Friday? We shall see.

In other news: Brexit = headache + sore eyes + raging tinnitus ÷ hope = despair

So, with this in mind here is a picture of my latest collage. The pictures aren’t the best because I had already framed the collage before remembering to take some pictures. PLEASE NOTE, the drawing of the tree is not by me. It is something I’ve had in my care for many years and I’m pleased to finally have it on display.

    Wishing you better days ahead.
    I believe the non-leaders of both the US and UK are a source of ill feelings throughout the land. With all the problems involving lost of life, our idiot-in-chief is fixated on a weather map instead the actual storm. His twitter account causes indigestion, headaches, and strange facial expressions. My political commentary probably isn’t necessary but sometimes sharing my frustration provides a bit of relief.

        Good heavens… I am on my phone and got my fingers in a muddle… I was saying: I shall build an exclusive hotel, and a run down B&B full of interesting characters, so that we have some choice where to sleep at night.

    Gosh, I do believe that’s an elm. We used to have some of those at Batarde Towers before the rot set in and one of them toppled over onto Aunt Ethel’s cottage … bit of a kerfuffle about that, as I recall. Anyway, there being about four of them left in the country and all in Brighton, your collage is something of a collector’s item.

      Mr Batarde – I always thought it was an Elm!!! But I was reliably informed that it’s an oak. So there you go. I have seen an Elm, and it was indeed in Sussex.

    That’s an old elm. Not oak.
    Now, this luxury accommodation you’re planning….what will be the accepted currency at the Mogwash Bank? I think I have a few Euros squirrelled away and possiby out-of-date stirling.But if the Bank of Mogwash doesn’t accept that I’d be a foreign destitute, a sort of illegal asylum seeker.
    Please advise monetary availability.

      Dinah – This is amusing re the elm v oak discussion. I shall let it meander for a while. I am definitely, and also defiantly, on the elm side!
      Anyhow, I have governed that there will be no money in Mogwash, we shall instead use a bartering system. Money only causes problems, so I hereby abolish it.

    The leaf in the picture is not of oak or elm I believe it to be a sycamore leaf. I’d been getting sore, almost painful eyes, especially in the morning, the lavender oil I’d been sprinkling liberally on my pillows at night to help me sleep was the cause of it. Whatever you do don’t draw the blinds/curtains mid-morning or afternoons otherwise you’ll get talked about by your neighbours, I should know I used to live on a cul de sac.

    Mitzi – Yes, unhelpfully the leaf in the picture is a Sycamore! But it’s a leaf all the same.
    I used to live in a cul de sac – and you are so right! I used to put on a performance every night at about 11.30pm as I stumbled in from the pub. The stories I heard about myself have filled the gaps in my memory.

    I look forward to chocolate and flirting! (mainly because I haven’t partaken in either for some time…)

    However, I am intrigued by your “bizarre woodland adventure” – was this before or after your turn as Dorothy? And was Vicky Pollard there, because something appeared to have spelt out “Whatever”?

    P.S. I hope your unwellness is on the wane, or has, in fact, totally waned by now.

    Mr Devine, I’m sure there was pollarding – so long ago now that I can barely remember. I think it started HERE

    P.S I am a bit ratty because I am trying to give up vaping.

    I’m also suffering from political indigestion. I’ve eaten far too much Brexit and I think I’m about to be sick.

    You must have had a few more flirtatious encounters since May. You can spill the beans, we won’t make any discouraging remarks, even if outright scoundrels were involved.

      Joey – Ha Ha!!! Tips from me – now there’s a thing! Remember, I consider fish fingers to be a mainstay of fine dining, and I lock people in my attic!

        Fish fingers were the mainstay of my mother’s cooking repertoire. We’d have them several times a week. Fine by me, I loved them. Well, that was well before the era of nouvelle cuisine, guacamole and quinoa.

      Thank you, Mr Auty, it might be worth me buying the exhibition book as I’m not sure that I’m due a trip to Edinburgh in the near future. Thank you for the link!!
