Pride and joy

the mist lay heavy on a chilly bright October morning, dew glistened on tiny intricate cobwebs covering the ferns and saplings littering the vast green fields where a small well trodden path ambled its way to a small isolated cottage with pretty stone walls, and tiny unkempt windows which looked over the Devonshire countryside, a plume of smoke rose up through the small chimney and a flickering light from the kitchen window made ‘tymans’ cottage a very welcoming sight for Jack’s sore eyes. the year was 1902 Jack and Annie Fledglings home, Jack and Annie Fledglings pride and joy.

Annie looking as beautiful as ever had just put a couple of logs on the fire and was wiping her hands in her pinny she welcomed Jack with a vibrant smile “Hello Jack, you should have woken me, I would have made you a brew before you left for milkin.” Jack put down his heavy churn and walked lovingly up to his wife and held her small rough hands in his, “I told you before mrs Fledgling your to take it easy, in six weeks were going to have our very first little babby and I want you both fit and well, go lay down, and I will make a fresh  brew for us both.” Jack tapped Annie’s bottom and she shrilled with laughter.

Costa light…. (yuck give me the real stuff)

After a non productive week I thought I would treat myself to my favourite coffee, in my favourite coffee shop, then I remembered I was cutting down on high fat treats and blurted out …..

“a Costa light please.” (strike me dumb)

word of warning if anything says ‘light’ or ‘healthy’ steer well clear of it.

So to get over the shock I took myself shopping….cured
