For Sale

In the next week or two I will need more oil. I checked out the latest prices the other night and it ranged from £311.00 to £349.65 for 900 Litres. Now my singing efforts would hardly raise the price of a fish supper and as for the dancing…. well we can forget all about that one thank you!

So what are the options?

Rent a room.

Sounds interesting and it would give the neighbours something to think about. If I rent a room do I want to be seen in all my morning glory minus the smile, wooden leg and glass eye? What if the house guest brought a pet snake, a tarantula or a german shepherd? Well now, that certainly needs more thought…..

There might be some chance if the German Shepherd wore lederhosen and yodelled! 🙄

Find a wealthy Toyboy.

If Tommy were a rich man,
Ya ha deedle deedle, bubba bubba deedle deedle dum.
All day long I’d bribe him with some buns.
If Tommy were a wealthy man.
I wouldn’t have to work hard.
Ya ha deedle deedle, bubba bubba deedle deedle dum.
If Tommy were a biddy biddy rich,
Yidle-diddle-didle-didle man.

But Lily might put up a fight, talons at dawn win no awards and we girls need to behave in Cork.

Sell my crown jewels

Alas, the burglars got there first and cleared anything worth more than a second glance.

So what will that leave?

Wait now, I got it!

Flog the Artwork!

I will be sad to let it go but needs must. It is a personally signed ‘One Off’, carefully thought out and designed. A perfect representation of a family group filled with sunshine and love. Now where is the number for Sotheby’s?

I should really keep it under wraps until it goes under the hammer, but on the other hand I would really appreciate your opinion…





In case you are a little puzzled, we have our hands behind our backs – I know because I asked the artist! 😀
