In the days when I was chairman of a Nadfas society and it was down to me to give a vote of thanks, I used to latch on to names, facts and individual pictures to mention – it’s my experience that remembering and linking a few facts gives the impression that you remember every word. One of today’s slides that I certainly would have mentioned appreciatively was this one. The picture wasn’t quite so full-on, but quite enough. Hmmmm.
It was a whole day event with three lectures, but I couldn’t stay after lunch, as I had to get back to a funeral – not going to say more there, the circumstances were deeply upsetting but I’m an onlooker, not a sufferer. Then a meeting at the school, I came home tired and a bit drained and seem to have had a couple of glasses of wine without really noticing. At least the kilo of Montezuma chocolate that I ordered has turned up – although most of it is for Weeza (don’t tell her) and I’m not opening it tonight anyway. I have, at any rate, been very appreciative of my dear kind Sage – not that I needed more kindness than usual, but others did.
Chocolate after all, perhaps? Maybe. Although, I also have a pineapple. Which to choose? I’m genuinely undecided. Possibly neither after all. Who knows?
Back to riotous good cheer tomorrow, darlings. You get me in every mood, lucky people. I appreciate your friendship, and thank you for it.
