God moves in mysterious ways

Today has been a 'bit of', day. I've done a bit of housework, a bit of sewing, a bit of dog walking, a bit of reading, watching a bit of 4oD, and a bit of litter picking. The rubbish has been blowing around the village a bit just lately so I thought I would have a tidy up.

I give my time freely to keep my village spick and span, I expect no reward, it's just nice when people say thank you. It's nice to be appreciated. Today I got a bit of a bonus. I found three cans of Blackthorn cider in the churchyard, still in their plastic sleeve. How strange. So my wages for today was £2.73, paid in cider.
Thank you Lord :o)

  1. How exciting, I hope you wash the cans before opening, you never know what might have 'investigated'.

  8. Nice find - the lads probably got disturbed and just dumped it.
    I pick up litter too on my walks but only recyclables then I put them in my bins when I get home. This fetish for bottled water is amazing - I guess it cost more per litre than gasoline.

  10. Here in US:
    Hard cider=alcoholic
    cider=non-alcoholic

    So. UK cider is alcoholic?

    Just curious!

  14. Yes, PP, it is alcoholic, 4.7% volume, that's why the lads and lassies drink it in the churchyard, away from their parents prying eyes. My getting drunk days are long gone, I can only manage one can these days, I used to drink several pints but not any more. I might have one can a week now, if that.

    Yes indeed Divine Intervention Sally. Better down my older more experienced throat, than messing up the mind of someone too young to understand the long term implications of too much booze.
