....today picking and podding beans.
And just the act of doing this takes me back to the Belfast home and dad has been to his plot and brought back a bag of beans and peas and mum says..
...."Geraldine sit down there on that step and pod those for us for dinner"...
and I sit on the kitchen step in the morning sun and pod and dream.
Dinner was always at 12.30...what we now call lunch...
...5.00 was tea!
A plot is what is now called an allotment!
How times change and yet how times stay the same.
