  1. Before I remarried, I often relied on the fix-it abilities of my male neighbors. Blinds that flip-flopped to the floor and simply couldn’t be hung… Cheap entertainment center that had to be assembled and I only got as far as carrying all that heavy stuff in from the car (which I paid for myself – in full. The car & the heavy stuff)… Blown fuses replaced with new fuses that still don’t work – and my rearend hurts from trapsing up and down the stairs 100 times to that fuse box! Oh it was everyday life! Today my 4 year old son has informed me that “hair is dead skin” “So are toenails and our legs are dead too.” I guess that’s why I had such a hard time with the stairs! Blessings… Polly (did any of that even make sense???)

  2. Oh Alison! Well, you could look at this as a character-building experience, but I think you are quite a character already 🙂 Get the old dude to fix your telly, and whack him with your pink polka dotted umbrella if he gets out of line.

  3. You have such a way with words, you’re hilarious 🙂 Couldn’t stop laughing (with you I hope) as I was reading that post! May I suggest ‘freecycle’ for a new television, it’s fabulous! xxx

  4. Yes I recommend Freecycle too, there are tvs being given away all the time on my local group as people who can afford it upgrade to plasma screens and want to dump their “bulkers” as my daughter calls them! Put a wanted post on, with your usual stylish and witty words and bet you get lucky. Good luck x

  6. I absolutely love that phrase “It’s exhausting being fabulous” – I might use it myself. As for birthdays, a woman I know who just turned 65 responds, when anyone enquires about her age “I am moving towards magnificence”.

  7. Oh Alison, I am so glad you will be online again soon! And I hope your tv soon lives and breathes again! I missed the Apprentice too, bah! Oh, and I have just devoured The Making of a Marchioness, it is quite the loveliest book!
