What a privilege to be surrounded by such lovely young people, this was our idyll in our house on the Isle of Wight. Forty seven sheets Pillow cases and towels later I am left to contemplate the theory of moving on, since after nineteen years we are going to sell this wonderful house. Herman Hesse has a poem about moving on and today I will read it. It is a joy to be in the company of all these delightful young people who pay us the great compliment of making us feel part of their world, such precious moments , a gaggle of girls on my bed talking about frivolous things which are a cover for something far deeper. Gossips in a thunder storm till the small hours … and hilarious laughter over so many happy meals , the list is endless, the house looks beautiful with sails coming past the window so close you can hear them talking . They are all strong and philosophical about the loss of this house but their own memories will be a locked in forever to hand to the next generation who will benefit from this great coil of love.
This brings me to the incomprehensible arrogance of the lofty out of touch idiots who call themselves a government. George Osborne Disaster ….. G.O.D? He must think he is social engineering to get young mothers out of the home and back into dreary jobs leaving their kids to be brought up by nannies who will give them chicken nuggets and pizzas and stick them in front of the TV. But he is sensitive to the cost of this child care assuming that an annual income of one hundred and fifty thousand pounds a year is the norm and a cut-off point where the government will no longer subsidize the employment of nannies and delinquent helpers to neglect the hapless latch key kids of Osborne’s dreams. This folks is just part of the Tory Utopia. Actually Mr Bloom of the Foreign Aid remarks has a point …. He just said it badly I would like to hear his view on the latest Notting Hill bollocks are they all bonkers never mind Bongo Bongop ??? I bet they were all raised by nannies you see and that’s what you get !!!!! Charity should begin at home.
