Where the older lady says she doesn't like tea she likes gin and aim to be her as I approach my dotage?

Me too.

She so matter of fact with it always makes me smile!

That and "I'm on a horse" never fails to make me smile.

Love, love, love that one. In fact that's the sort of old lady I want to be grin

I saw the gin one for the first time last night and thought it was brilliant!

When I am an old woman I shall wear purple
With a red hat which doesn't go, and doesn't suit me.
And I shall spend my pension on brandy and summer gloves
And satin sandals, and say we've no money for butter.

I shall sit down on the pavement when I'm tired
And gobble up samples in shops and press alarm bells
And run my stick along the public railings
And make up for the sobriety of my youth.

I shall go out in my slippers in the rain
And pick the flowers in other peoples' gardens
And learn to spit.

You can wear terrible shirts and grow more fat
And eat three pounds of sausages at a go
Or only bread and pickles for a week
And hoard pens and pencils and beermats and things in boxes.

But now we must have clothes that keep us dry
And pay our rent and not swear in the street
And set a good example for the children.
We must have friends to dinner and read the papers.

But maybe I ought to practice a little now?
So people who know me are not too shocked and surprised
When suddenly I am old, and start to wear purple.

by Jenny Joseph

Dp roared with laughter when we saw it the first time and he's not one for laughing, it is brilliant

Smellslikecatpee Fri 01-Jul-11 20:51:27
