With arrival of spring comes new crop of posters proclaiming forthcoming events around the village. Feel that Should Support fundraising event for nursery school but slightly horrified to notice that it is 80s/90s Theme Night – Fancy Dress Optional. Struggle to think of fancy dress to represent two decades which a) surely ended only yesterday and b) contained so many events of personal and world significance; so seek inspiration on internet. Choice appears to be Spice Girl or Baywatch Lifeguard.
Spend afternoon thinking Great Thoughts while scraping off old bathroom wallpaper (creativity always seems to flow better as soon as leave computer). Would like to enter suggestion for new life-affirming manifesto but suspect that own favoured mantras of Always Read the Question and Never Trust Anything Whatever The Source may not be quite what they are looking for.
