Crowded House

“No distance of place nor lapse of time can lessen the friendship
of those who are thoroughly persuaded of each other’s worth.”
Robert Southey, English Poet 1774-1843

I have written before on my other blog about the crazy old lady who has taken up uninvited residence in my apartment. And she is so very annoying eating my food, using my hair products and even at times, stealing money.  I wish I could make her go away.

And now she has ben joined by yet another uninvited guest. He too, is living here rent free. He eats lttle but he takes up spac ein my very small apartment. His name? Mr Nobody.

I know a funny little man as quiet as a mouse,
Who does the mischief that is done In everybody’s house!
There’s no one ever sees his face, And yet we all agree t

hat every plate we break was cracked By Mr. Nobody.
’Tis he who always tears out books, who leaves t
he door ajar,
He pulls the buttons from our shirts, And scatters pins afar…”

Can you imagine the mischief these two get up to when I am away.? Yesterday, I could have sworn the house was tidy when I left for lunch. So who strewed papers and magazines around/? Who left a coffee mug on the draining board?

it’s great to have someone else to blame.

“Uninvited guests are often most welcome when they leave.”
Aesop

And Wellington’s summer 2021 is still elusive. Today is Friday. Wednesday presented us with a glorious day and once again, lulled us into thinking summer was here. But no. Wind and rain greeted us yesterday and todayat 7 am, its not looking as if it will change. Don’t we all love talking about the weather?

So with nothing else to say today,. Until the next time.
