Trees 20.06.2019

These grow next door to our estate in the garden of one of those villas. I am not sure if they are really trees or Ents from the Lord of the Rings Saga by Tolkien. Perhaps they might pull up their roots and start to walk.

I am not so sure about this one, it seems to want to spread its arms.

I think this is a so-called weeping willow.

Police at East Ham Market

“Now pay attention to what I say. Our job is to keep an eye on the customers who enter this shop. They are selling alcohol and cigarettes and it shouldn’t be sold to customers under 25 years of age.”

“Of course, I will arrest anyone that I see leaving the shop under age with such objects. ”

“You don’t have to arrest them, we don’t have enough cells to keep them all. Just take the goods away and give them a fine. That is why you have been issued with the plastic bags.”

“But the bags are almost full.”

“No problem. Take them to the station. The sergeant is going into retirement at the end of the week and we want to give him a good send off. We can put those bottles of whisky and rum to good use at the farewell party. ”

“If it wasn’t for the mountains in between we would have so much more space.”

“What do you mean Mr. President?”

“What I say of course. All those peaks, going up and down. Get rid of them, flatten them. Think of the wonderful golf course that could be created.”

“But what about the people that like to climb mountains or even ski on the snow slopes.

“Stupid idea. Why climb mountains when you can use a golf trolley to travel from hole to hole. That is much more fun. Get rid of the mountains, then there is no need to go skiing. No the mountains have to go. I solve all my problems by eradication. Look at our wonderful country. It belongs to us and we do with it what we want to.”

“But the tourists?”

“Who needs tourists? They should stay where they are. As soon as you get tourists, they decide they want to stay and our country is overrun by unwanted visitors. We need space, not tourists.”

“But if we remove the mountains, what shall we do with the removed piles of earth.”

“Use your brain if you have one. Build a wall around our country with it, that will stop the unwanted entering.”

Good Morning


It has been quite a busy morning. First of all I heard the noise of machines outside and my gardener arrived. I called him last week and he said he would come along this week. I need no further discussion. He knows where I live and as access to my garden through the path. It was necessary to cut my hedges as they were growing quite wild. Living on an estate people tend to see what the others have for organisation otherwise word soon gets around that Mrs. Angloswiss has untidy hedges.


As you can see there was quite a bit of hedge material removed and they are now busy  tidying it away.


Two guys arrived and were busy all morning, but they did quite a good job.

My cleaning lady also arrived, so I felt like the lady of the manor this morning with so many servants arriving to look after my needs.

I was busy this morning organising a few documents for the cleaning lady. She has been employed by me for a couple of years and now our authorities want to make it official. I was not sure what she had organised on her side but now it is all sorted. I phoned our local office and they were very helpful and said I had time to complete their document until end of the year. I also had to organised an insurance for her. You never know if she falls from a ladder when cleaning, so I also contacted my insurance man and that is also being dealt with.


Again I am a bit short on time this morning. Whilst dealing with my various servants I had to begin cooking lunch. Unfortunately I have not yet employed a cook, perhaps I might even do that one day.

This afternoon I have nothing planned up to now. And now I am off, so have a good day everyone. It’s a bit short and sweet this morning.
