Yes, it’s that time again. About now each year, as the spring air wafts it’s way through Bernard’s little warren of a house by the sea, he always asks me to come over, scramble about the place and help him get it up.
I am, of course, referring to the mast on his little boat which is now coming out of storage and being prepared for the bay. Once again it will feel the salty spray of the sea on it’s bow. I can also taste a little salty taste on my lips, but that’s from something entirely different. That reminds me, I should get some Scope mouthwash at the store this morning.
We do enjoy our days sailing, Bernard banging on about how his luff is crinkled in his cordwangle, and Sylvester, or Sebastian huffing and puffing and pulling things. I find it very relaxing in the nice weather. Even Amanda comes out from time to time, lounging on the foredeck and reading her copy of The big Book Of Lesbian Horse Stories. Yes, that’s a real thing.
In a funny way, and it’s hard to admit this, I have come to accept Amanda. The fact that she had a relationship with my wife when they were at university together is not something I hold against her, exactly. If anything I am a little jealous of the fact that she beat me to it. Nonetheless, my wife has made it quite clear I am not to antagonise Amanda. My dear wife is currently traveling, as you may know. She’s been in the north of England lately, visiting somewhere called Rochdale, and then she tells me she’s going Upper Ramsbotham. She’s very liberal minded.
It seems everyone is eager to travel now that things are easing. Marjory, Amanda’s lover and my neighbor, is getting ready for the Competitive eating circuit, which is once more on the table – excuse the pun. She’s always keen to get in shape for each leg of the competitions. She loves to travel for the events, and Amanda often goes down to enjoy some time with her between the legs. Such a romantic couple.
But that is not the main reason I’m writing. I thought I’d let you know that, although we’re likely to see a few changes in Twitter in the coming months, I am as keen to stay connected on my social media as ever. Perhaps you’d enjoy my Pinterest, Linked in or Tumblr. I always try to include interesting content there. Follow me if you feel like it, and you know you can always find me at http://FionaDobson.com
I’m working on my lovely spring wardrobe. If you like you can see some of my ideas for it HERE. If you have some great ideas for what to wear now that spring is up us why not login and comment below? I will provide free good gurl membership to the first three comments.
Have a delightful week.
PS. Don’t forget, when you see one of the names as a hotlink or in a tag at the end of a post, you can drill down to read more about that person. It’s a fun way to explore the site. FD
