The title of this blog comes from a Gaelic expression -"putting on the poor mouth"-which means to exaggerate the direness of one's situation in order to gain time or favour from creditors.
And a very entertaining one to you too. Don't imbibe too much now. I know what you Celts are like. I'm a 64th Irish. That's where I blame my own drinking on!!What am I saying I'm also half Australian. A far more likely "reason"... ha ha ha!O why do I have to be so literalistic and honest. Yes my family is half Aussie, but they're £10 pom-type Aussies, so I can't even say I have Australian blood. How disappointing is that. So genetically I'm just the type of Englander who likes drinking and so gravitates Down Under. That would be the truth!!PS did you know I was nearly born in Adelaide. In a way I'm glad to be in London, bc if I were an Aussie I know I'd want to be in London anyhow. I love great metropolises and none is greater than the Centre of the Universe, yes London Town Itself!!
"A 64th Irish"?! Now that's what I call a tenuous link.After all, my own genes are more than 90% identical to chimpanzee, apparently :)
Have a blessed Christmas Jams!
Have a lovely holiday season.
No chance of drinking at all Gleds!Haha InsciensA happy Xmas to you too ECL!And to you too Colin!
I'd like to be in London Town for Christmas too. Just goes to show I'm never satisfied :-)May you and your not wife enjoy the holiday.
Thanks Susan. I hope you have a good day too
Happy Christmas, jams! It's mighty quiet around here with Stella in North Carolina visiting her family; you'll have to make do with best wishes from me and the kitties, Esther and Pester, um, I mean, Esther and Lily. Have a great day!
I hope it is a good day Steve
Happy Christmas, Jams from the rather chilly shore of the Gulf of Mexico.At least you get the snow to play in.
Happy Xmas Bryan. I could do without the damned snow though!
