What’s in a name?


My brother Pete (above) and family have been staying, and it’s been grrrreat, and I’ve been too busy to post. (Gosh, I didn’t ask him if I could put his photo on here – I hope he doesn’t mind!)

We have also had the painters here for the last week and one of them – Ben – is painting the front door as I write - the undercoat for Lulworth Blue.

I love these painters – they are quiet, hard-working, reliable, friendly and funny, and I think they like it here, too, because they get six mugs of tea a day and as many chocolate digestives as they can eat. They also get a go on the slackline in their lunchbreak.

Do you know what I like most of all, though?

The chief one calls me boss…as in

“Hi Ben.”

“Good morning, boss.”

No-one has ever called me boss, before. I like it so much it makes me want to start a business, so I can be called “boss”  everyday.
