So… how do you spend a Sunday afternoon with the love of your life?
Well… if you’re me, you take Aran Island Girl’s advice!! Mind you… I first got myself a good tongue lashing for my comment… then we lit a memory braai… memories of events and happenings of the distant past!
We burned receipts/ invoices/ bank statements/ tax returns/ pension details/ business correspondence/ project documentation/ time-sheets/ address changes/ hidden love letters (ha-ha) / copies of CV’s – mine, Senior Son’s… and other bits and pieces too many to bother about! Some of the items were from so long back my good lady and I were still not even on each other’s Christmas card list… yes, we burned memories… we purged!!
PS – If you’re wondering… the old braai has seen better days… so, it went to the skip… pity, it gave us many pleasurable hours… and meals!
PPS – Yes, I know the wheels still look good… I salvaged them! Waste not, want knot!
PPPS – Actually… I kept the drum and lid as well… for my smoker!
PPPPS – so… I didn’t really throw that much away!
PPPPPS – I have a conscience!
PPPPPPS – If you’re wondering about my ruddy complexion… it’s the fire… not the wine!!
