    Now then, Tweet.
    Some of us younger chaps like a good office dragon.
    Maybe that's why I get on ok with you and Fruittea .

    Well I don't know about Fruits, but I do know that you're a she and older than me. Bubble is younger, so she don't qualify as a dragon, more a princess.

    I am totally guessing here, but despite the allotmenting, I think that our Fruittea is a lady of high quality and standard, and you can hit me over the head with a marrow if I got it wrong. However, Fruittea does live over Wales direction, and therefore it may be that there is a Welsh dragon in her.

    Apart from that Tweet, you're currently on track for a good wooden spooning in the morning, and whether or not Fruittea or me has first whack at you depends if she's a lady, see. Ladies first .....

    Well I might have been a dragon at some times but in my later years working in regulation I enjoyed coaching for the Institute of Customer Services. And I think most people thought I was a bit of a !!!!! cat.


    I also represented staff as a steward for the GMB union - I hope I developed a sense of fair play. So I'll let you off Sleaze with a slight reprimand and put things down to a restless night.


    I retired 4 years ago but still not a pensioner in the strictest sense - government offices sometimes let you retire early for good service.


    I'm in Gloucestershire on the River Severn but not on the Welsh side.


    By the way I have a new friend - I've been feeding in the garden - a little Robin who I call Bob. Well Bob has been getting friendly and eating out of my hand and this morning whilst hovering Bob found his way into the kitchen - didn't realise he was there because of said hoover noise.


    He seemed to be after the meal worm packet which was on the counter. Gave me quite a fright when he buzzed past my head. That'll teach me.


    And Sleaz you can keep the wooden spoon.

    You probably 'retired' a few months before me then Fruittea. I worked in the shady area between public and private (we were part funded by HM Gov and part by the Railway TOC's). Handy, because I got to keep free rail travel for me and WiFi after was medically retired. Will be 3 years in November since I retired, but had about 8 months off sick beforehand.

    58 and put on the scrap heap like Stig of The Dump but they did bump up my pension a bit to get rid of me and the doc still wont let me work. Things not too bad really.

    A cat called Bob and a robin called Bob! I didn't realise robins were so tame. We have a solitary blackbird last year and this - keeps away from the rest and always comes after I cut the grass. I like him (I call him Beaky) and I've instructed our Bob cat to leave him be.
