No complaints

One or two of you may have noticed that I was somewhat absent from here yesterday.

I was sitting here quietly pondering upon the mysteries of life and wondering what to write about when I got a simple text message.

“Are you in?”

Being a somewhat chatty type of person who loves a good conversation, I replied.


What seemed like a fraction of a second after, the house was full of people – adults and children.  So instead of sitting here surrounded by silence, broken only by the sound of the dog snoring, I found myself surrounded by noise and conversation and people hopping up and down fetching themselves mugs of tea and coffee and generally sending my head into a spin.

Not that I was complaining.

They disappeared as suddenly as they had come and I sat there wondering what the fuck had just happened.

Shorty after, they reappeared, only this time there was more of them.  I swear they had doubled in number and the noise and mayhem started again, only a lot louder and more mayhemmy as most of the extras were kids.  And because there were kids I was now surrounded by noise and conversation but with the additional bonus of a blaring television.

Not that I was complaining.

They stayed the night.

Now this was a minor miracle in itself as we only have two bedrooms, and Herself, Penny and I grabbed one which meant all our visitors had to cram into the one bedroom. 

Not that they could complain.

This morning they all disappeared again.  In fairness they left the place more or less as they found it.  Apart from someone having walked dog shit into the carpet.  Also someone [maybe a different someone?] having suffered from a dose of explosive diarrhea in the bathroom.  And when I say explosive diarrhea, I mean extremely volatile, quick-setting explosive diarrhea.  It took me a while to chisel that off the bowl, the seat, the floor and the walls.

I’m not sure if they are about to descend again.  They said their good-byes this morning but they fooled me yesterday with that line so I’m expecting them to return at any moment.

In the meantime, the silence is deafening.  I can actually hear my Tinnitus again.

Not that I am complaining.
