Sandra had called me and asked if I could possibly come into work an hour early as there was a rush photocopying job for maps for the Geography trip to Stratford Upon Avon that had to be done before ten o’clock.
Naturally I said yes, and had an unremarkable journey to school until I was walked down the road leading to the back entrance A sign outside a house said “Eat, Drink and be Merry” ….. I was intrigued. I wondered if they were perhaps opening up a little restaurant of a casual type nature, and did consider, as I hadn’t had any breakfast, knocking on the door to see if they had, by chance, any bacon butties and a latte….. but then I thought better of it.
And then as I walked a little further I found a garland which I believe the Hawaiian's call a lei lying abandoned on the pavement……even more intrigue, as I mused over who could have discarded such a lovely item.
Not wishing to see it become a part of street detritus, I slipped it nonchalantly over my shoulder with the full intention of taking it home with me ….. you never know, one day I might be invited to a party of a fancy dress nature and be asked to eat, drink and be merry!
