Garden seats

      Having had a lengthy and very interesting conversation with the 'man in black' at Lincoln Cathedral I can now exclusively reveal his brilliant suggestion for the new seats in the back garden. There's no getting away from the fact that they would look fantastic tucked in a corner and surrounded by honeysuckle and clematis.
      A really quiet place where you could meditate to your hearts content on the serious things and major decisions in life such as where to go fishing next and do I get up and make a cup of tea now or later, do the crossword or simply hide.
      We still haven't sorted the bathroom window conundrum out yet. I'll just sit here and meditate and think about it then.
      Meanwhile just think of all the bums that have sat, over the centuries, on those cold, stone seats.
      I bet they all had terrible piles.
