My last ever 61st Monday

Posted by Jeni in Ad Infinitum | 21 March 2011

First I watch the BBC news at 6.00

Then I watch The ITV news at 6.30.

Libya, Japan and energy companies who have us by the short and curlies.

Then I watch Corrie.

Then I watch University Challenge.


Or some such quote from Alan Bennett.

Then I watch the second part of Corrie and find my self getting really angry with the mother of the publican.

Clever Trevor taught me about mirror nuerones - which is what I was doing watching The Street - and visual squashing. I'm dying to have him on the show so that he can tell you about them as well.

Then I eat the second of my two super salads using a shed load of garlic since the old gits in East sussex.

Then an apple. Which tastes funny because of the garlic.

Then I hang up the laundry.

This is the last Monday I shall ever be 61.

On Thursday I will be 62. Who'd have thought it?

Most of my extended framily are working away, working at home or just unavailable.

So I've made a decision to buy a crate of champagne and invite whoever is around to come and sip a tipple with me.

Then I pondered on my new idea.

So now, at 21.37 I am going to bed.

I have set the alarm for 6.00

Will do my yoga at 6.30.

And smile at the last Tuesday of my 61st year.

Coffee in the Square and a possible meeting in Farringdon.

So far most aspects of my life are uncomfortable. But then thats how it goes at the moment. This too will pass, as they say.
