When daughter Olaf calls me, she inevitably starts the conversation with the words “I’m bored.” She wants it made clear that she has run out of everything else she can possibly think of to do before her next interesting thing to do and thus, scraping the barrel, she calls her old father. Keen to reinforce the idea that I was boring, I bought myself a birthday present of some Georgian brass candlesticks HERE. But perhaps that is not boring enough for Olaf.
So arriving in the post today is a new set of William Morris placemats. I am excited about the upgrade and convinced that Olaf’s view of her father will only be reinforced. And, as a bonus, another box arrived a bit later with an order of 60 candles for my new candlesticks. Olaf, surely that is exciting, is it not?
