I have been languishing in the doldrums of blogdom, waiting for some divine inspiration perhaps. That arrived in the guise of an email from a crusty old curmudgeon whom I have taken to calling M’Lord, which he seems to like. I follow his blog, here because there’s often something in it with which I or one of his other followers can take umbrage, and heaven knows we can all do with a little umbrage in our lives.
As far as I can ascertain, M’Lord lives in a Sydney suburb going by the name of Annandale, no doubt because that is its name. Here is a Google map that shows you (vaguely) where you’d find it if you were wandering around in Sydney one fine day. Annandale
M’Lord shares his life with a pretty little dog (Coco) and a long suffering wife whom he has lovingly labelled The War Office (hereafter referred to as TWO).
It was TWO who was off to fill the larder, and M’Lord was assigned to write the shopping list. I am always suspicious of people who write tidy shopping lists, and I present exhibit 1 (the only exhibit, in fact) to support my case.
Aside from gaining an insight into the culinary habits and brand name loyalties of the family unit, the only other satisfaction I could gain from it was that there was a spelling error. Now, let’s wait and see what M’Lord has to say in response to that observation. It shouldn’t be long coming, if past experience is anything to go by. Oh, and thank you M’Lord, for contributing to my blog.
PS Remember “Mission Possible” from the previous shopping list? It turns out that this is the name of an appliance repair shop in the town where my Canadian Correspondent lives.
