I mean .....really?? At 88 or 89, believe me, if I get to that age, I will be adding all the forbidden things to my menu on the grounds that it doesn't matter and who cares. I did point out to her that it seemed ridiculous after so many years of consuming coffee and butter, to suddenly stop. But it was written in black and white on the pages of the paper, therefore it was an absolute.
And I am reminded of myself. I hear a man say that coffee will slow the weight loss programme and decide to stop immediately. Even if the decision lasted 3 hours max. (She says, reaching for her coffee mug..) Some things one can change and some really don't matter. Coffee is one thing. (My own personal decision, so please do not supply any links re why it is bad. I will ignore the lot.)
Scotland is trying not to be at the very bottom of the pile in the 6 Nations Rugby competition as I speak. I am trying not to watch because they are not doing very well right now, and my Scottish friends will be entering a Great Period of Doom and Depression if they lose. Oops. They lost.
I just popped out to take a photo of the seedlings, and sprayed my roses. There are new leaves sprouting, and I was told by one gardener man that I need to spray them early to avoid blackspot. So I did. Just like early vaccinations for babies. Brace yourself, my friends - the garden talk is back , so I apologise for boring you in advance!
