Contrary Mary" the story of a small girl (well actually I think she was a mouse) who behaved in a very contrary manner.
I was reminded of her when I sat down for my dinner tonight, a couple of weeks ago I weighed myself and decided that I needed to lose a little weight. Today I repeated the exercise and little had changed, I could still do with losing around half a stone before I go on holiday. So why did I sit down to a dinner of two fried eggs, fried mushrooms, black pudding and bread and butter. It was rather nice, but not exactly slimming!
And as far the little girl I used to read to, well I don't read to her anymore, but those intimate times we spend together are now the highlight of my week.
