Farewell fond friends

Parting is such sorrow, even though I always knew it would happen. I knew this day would come - and in all honesty the date has been known to me since the day we met. Truth be told I didn't want us to part, but you are being taken away from me. I admit that you're being replaced with something younger...but you must understand that the appeal of youthfulness never fades. Through good times and bad, I know you've always been there for me, and I know we've had our ups and downs, but you've never deserted me. Although I can't say you've always been a reliable friend.

However onwards and upwards.

So goodbye to my Nokia phone, your contract came to an end, so you're replaced with another so complicated that it'll take me a year at least to work out how to call my friends. And goodriddance to Vodafone and hello to T-Mobile - I like your adverts, so I hope the service is as good.

And goodbye to fat plutocrat autobahn express BMW. A lovely, speedy beast which has taken us on many wonderful adventures. Auntie Gwen thought it was far too flash...but actually in this neck of the woods, a poor man's car. So now replaced with sometthing, erm different. erm.


  1. Oh no, we have a beemer. And now I'm going to have to get rid of it, now you've said it's a poor man's car. So what have you got now? And what colour is it?

  2. Madame - it's a jeepy thing, it looks like a Hummer and it's enormous. I don't know what it's called but it's silver.

    I'm telling you this in public service mode as himself hardly ever replies to comments.

    You'd be all of a dither waiting to know, probably wouldn't be able to sleep for the wondering.

  3. A Jeep!!!??? And there was methinking you were a man of taste! Get yourself a bicycle, horse and cart... ;-) TFx

  4. No, no Madame you are allowed to keep your's just that I live in a land populated by footballers and pop stars and you wouldn't want to sink to their level.

    AG - spoilsport. Not talking to you

    TF...I have the bicycle,a nd the Jeep has the suspension of a horse and I redeemable?


There's only one thing worse than being commented on...not commented on
