It's my ninety-six year old friend on the line.
'How's Lockdown?' I ask.

'My whole day is Prompted by my Pee Plan.
I Pee when I Present myself to the day.
I Pee when I make my Porridge and take my Pills.
I Pee when I Peel my Potatoes and Pod my Peas for my lunch.
I Pee before I read the Paper and do my Puzzles.
I Pee before I watch my Programmes.
I Pee instead of watching the Politicians.
I Pee before I drink my Pimms.
I Pee before I say my Prayers'.
Peace, Perfect,Peace.

    This is absolutely wonderful, Marion! I love the concept, I love the army of alliterations and I love the fact that it’s true... (although of course that’s not so good for your friend, but the fact that s/he sees the humour in it suggest a certain pees of mind.)

    ... and of course alliteration AND the rule of three!

    She is a wonderful very positive,intelligent lady, well bred but never afraid to roll her sleeves up and get on with it. A real role model. It was said with absolute humour.

    I'm trying to pretend I don't know who this is based upon. She is a very proper lady I think!
