The Ying-Yang of Reality

27 Feb

It’s been a twenty four hours indeed. Yesterday, dear readers I was forgotten! FORGOTTEN!! Moi, the indignity.  BFF usually calls me as she walks home from work everyday. Yesterday circumstances meant she went home at lunchtime, but come 4pm no message so I readied myself, tv muted, phone in hand, and waited.  Hmmmm, 4:15 no call, perhaps she’s chit chatting with her boss (not unusual).  Hmmm, 4:30 no call, perhaps she’s calling after getting her prescription. Hmmm, 4:40 no call, perhaps her phone died.  I sent a message, immediately my phone starts ringing “I forgot about you”. Charming! Lol.

Today my niece and great neice popped in for lunch and to help with a chore or two (at above inflation living wage pocket money rates too!) and was bestowed the honour of an original piece of artwork.  We didn’t spend long discussing the modernist take on the abstract theme of the piece, very much leaving it to the fluid thoughts of the viewer.  It could be a statement on climate change and the rising of the blue waves, or it might be Rizzie the cat lounging in the sunshine.  Either way I am rather chuffed to be considered worthy of such thought.

Life – never a smooth road, keeps one in one’s place.

    Well, I dunno. Being forgotten! It’s Just Not On 😉 Glad you cleared up that little puzzle! And What a lovely picture. Will it start a gallery on your wall?

      There’s nothing like being forgotten to put ones ego in place. The prime reason (excuse) was the sunshine made her think it was too early. Hmmm 🤔. Lol.

      Yes, indeed, my hall has various autographed pieces, so this masterpiece will stand beside my desk. I’ve contacted my insurance company to ensure it is adequately covered 😉

    Dare I ask what above inflation pocket money rates relate to. I have lost track of what sums of pennies, or maybe it’s pounds, are given, or, paid to our very much younger generations today.

    The modernist piece of art work…simples….it’s a bucking bronco. Any cave-person would recognise it.

      The exact amounts are confidential as per the clause in the contract 🙄 however I can divulges that it included an amount of money held in trust until big brother came home from school. Not daft our little one 😂.
