Standing On One Leg At My Expense..

Recommended Posts

To a small Dorset country house, open to the public today.

In the golden September sunshine, on the lawns leading down from the house, three groups of a dozen people each were performing odd routines.

Encouraged by a 'leader', one group were standing on one leg; another group lying on the ground in awkward 'yogic postures', the final group taking turns to balance on a large orange ball. There was much hilarity.

The moustachio'd matron manning the urn at the Tea Kiosk enlightened me.

"NHS" she said "Team building exercise. They're often here. Bonding and such. National Health Service"

I stirred my tea. " My own health's not good", she continued "but I can't see that bloody nonsense helping.."

"We taxpayers" I said, "seem defenceless against this sort of thing. May I have a Wispa, and a flapjack?"

As I left, a 'leader' was shouting "C'mon, Anne! You can do it!" to a woman of restricted height (3'6" max) teetering on the plastic orange ball, while her colleagues applauded.

Autumn is here, and promising, I'm told, an unusual abundance of spiders.
