So, I walked into a pub

    What is it about teachers?

    There was I, minding my own business, when a load of ladies arrived, and after re-arranging the bar seating several times, one of them sat next to me, whilst I was eating my chicken ( sorry), and proceeded to tell me all about her rescued dog from Greece, and very nice he was too. On their arrival there was nearly an incident between the previous incumbent dog, some incumbent large lassie and their other two dogs. Still let's call him Stig with one eye.

    Enraptured I was by the owner of Stig who showed me his pics in Greece where he was injured and now only had one eye. Most endearing. However, she then went on to tell me she used to be a Deputy Head Teacher in I think, Sunderland where the north winds do blow. Moved down for clean air. Do I attract retired teachers who are clearly in large lady groups? Or am I imagining it? And is there no fresh air in the North East?

    You were eating chicken and were interrupted by an indeterminate number of retired teachers and four dogs?
    Sounds like an interesting pub. Ours is all teenagers and old men doing the general knowledge crossword.

    Oh Ok, I see. However, these were ladies ladies, and had escaped the North East for the benefits of Cheltenham and around.

    A bit like me, except I am just a lady, I think.

    Large lady groups or large lady groups?! Hilarious description of them commandeering chairs and talking *at* you.

    What can I say? It was like a hoard of ladies doing lady's things in an unladylike manner, but I WAS endeared to them, even though they were acting like scoundrels and making a darned nuisance of themselves.
