The Number Sixteen.


Sixteen years is a very long time in the life of a mayfly.
Sixteen years is a very short time in the life of a baobab tree.
Sixteen years is 3 years more than my eldest son has been alive.
Sixteen years is double how old my youngest son is.
Sixteen years ago I was thin.
Sixteen years ago David did not have white hair.
Sixteen years is how long I've been married.
Sixteen years is how long this man has had to put up with me.
Sixteen years is how long I've had to put with this man.

Sixteen eh?
Champagne is chilling.
Chocolate gooey pudding is made.
Delia's pork stroganoff is waiting to hit the pan.
Romance is in the air.

And if you believe that, sixteen is the number of times you need to
poke the bubble with a knitting needle! It will burst you know!
