This Morning Whilst Eating Toast

This morning whilst eating toast
I was joined by a rude ghost.
When I said, “I didn’t invite you!”,
He replied, “that’s perfectly true,
But I’m extremely fond of toast!”.

He replied, “that’s perfectly true,
But I’ve come to read your post!”.

      I agree with you, Debbie. I’m concerned that when he next visits my bacon will be at risk from him which is, if anything even worse! Thanks for your comment – Kevin

        I shall try the brown sauce, Debbie. Actually, one of my weaknesses is enjoying a cooked breakfast over the weekend and I often pop in to my local Wetherspoon for bacon, sausages, eggs, hash browns etc. Its morning when I do so, which means a cup of tea or coffee, as I cant drink alcohol in the morning! Anyway beer does not go well with a fry up! Best wishes – Kevin

        A nice fry up can just hit the spot perfectly, sometimes, Kevin..especially when you don’t have to cook it & wash up afterwards! Funnily enough, in our small village, they have an annual “Big Breakfast” that is all cooked by village volunteers & served in our village hall to raise money for its upkeep. This year it takes place tomorrow! We’ll have our breakfast & then I’ll help out for a couple of hours too. It’s excellent & great value for money too! Do enjoy yours if you venture to Wetherspoon’s tomorrow, Kevin!

      Your village is very enterprising, Debbie. The idea of a “big breakfast” to raise money for the upkeep of the village hall is a good idea and its great that you are involved in helping out. I’ll certainly enjoy my fry up in Wetherspoon’s and I hope you enjoy yours! On a different topic, we read a lot about broadband in rural areas generally being less fast than that in urban areas. With you mentioning that you live in a small village I was wondering what your experience of broadband is? Is the service good, poor or mediocre? Living in Upper Norwood, a suburb of London my broadband works well and I hope yours does too. All the best – Kevin

        The Big Breakfast went really well, thank you, Kevin. Approximately 165 people attended, villagers & beyond, & we must’ve raised well over £1000, in four hours, this morning. I don’t think there was too much in the way of expenses, so all good. I won a bottle of wine in the raffle so that was a nice, unexpected little bonus. I hope your big breakfast was good too!
        Our broadband is pretty good now, we have got Superfast Fibre Broadband from BT in the village, which reaches a large area. There are some areas higher up the hills that might have a bit of trouble, or where it doesn’t reach at all, but a couple of masts have been added in recent months, so you can get a signal in pockets whilst walking in the local country lanes, though it’s a bit patchy. When we moved here, just over 18 months ago, there was no signal at all locally & only basic broadband, so it’s a big improvement. We were a bit miffed as, like you, we were used to big city living, so broadband & all amenities were easy, & somewhat taken for granted, now we have to plan a bit better for everything, but absolutely love village life. I know there’s still quite a few places who do have trouble with poor broadband services & I saw one rural location where the whole village dug their own trenches etc & set it up on their own because the big companies were too slow or not interested, and apparently provide the users with faster speeds than they’d receive with the likes of BT! Another wonderfully enterprising community! Thank you for asking, Kevin, all the best.

        I’m pleased your “big breakfast” went well, Debbie and congratulations on winning that bottle of wine! I also enjoy drinking wine. However I tend to drink beer in pubs and wine with a meal but, having said that, I did enjoy a glass of the grape on popping into my favourite local yesterday evening.

        I’m pleased that your broadband is, on the whole good and I agree with you as regards the enterprise demonstrated by that other village!

        Best wishes – Kevin

        Thank you, Kevin. I’m not a big wine drinker, but the one I won happened to be one I like, so I was well-pleased!
        It’s nice to have a decent local pub, to visit. So many in Birmingham had closed down, including our old local, which was knocked down too, quite a few years ago, it was so sad, many happy times were had there. Thankfully, our village pub is very friendly. They host a regular, monthly open mic night, have live music & quizzes every so often, & other events, great for the community & it feels like a real local again, at last! 😊
