Hello you lot. Feeling a bit meh. So I read the back of one of the wife’s self help books and it said, ‘Make yourself a gratitude list!’
This is it.
(To the choon of ‘My Favourite Things’ from the Sound of Music.)
Bright plastic buckets and oysters with lemon,
Bracing cold beaches and a pint of Hoegaarden,
Real working trawlermen hauling in fishes,
Cobble streets, boutiques and hipsters in britches,
Malty real ale in a cosy old Inn,
These are a few of my favourite things.
Kitesurfing dudes boosting shed loads of air time,
Silky smooth beard hair combed fresh free of beard grime,
(The sad bit in the middle)
When the flue chugs,
When the whelks ming,
When I’m feeling sad,
I simply remember my favourite things,
And then I don’t feel so sad!
Live music, galleries, delis and cafes,
Flat fish and pinot and chips dipped in mayonnaise,
Jeans, stripy t-shirt and butterscotch ice-cream,
I’m DOWN FROM LONDON and I’m Living The Dream,
Ugh. Phew. Bit emotional now tbw…I have some sad news. I’m not going to be around much longer. Will reveal why in my next – and last – blog. Gonna miss you guys.
