Bit of this
I wonder if there is a correlation between the way people read books and longevity? Mrs T can't get into her new book but rather abandon it for another she prefers to "plod on". She is 94. No meals on wheels for her she cooks meat and 2 veg daily and irons towels and knickers. Puts the enormous beast of an ironing board away that I struggle to put up. She has a set routine and sticks to it with ruthless determination despite having painful joints. She won't let me unload the washing machine and kicks the wash basket from room to room when putting the washing on her radiators to dry. She only allows me to clean for her to keep her family happy. If a book fails to engage me with in the first 30 pages I nip to the end to suss out wether it's worth investing time in and have never ever ironed anything that was not worn for state occasions. (when I buy I do the scrunch up test, to see if the creases fall out quickly). She let slip today that he had been up a step ladder!
So does the plodder plod for longer?
Bit of that
Don't put off tomorrow what can be enjoyed today.
