Warning: When I Am an Old Woman I Shall Wear Purple – Jenny Joseph

When I am old I shall wear purple.and live with 17 cats

Warning by Jenny Joseph, 1961. When I am an old woman I shall wear purple   With a red hat which doesn’t go, and doesn’t suit me.
   And I shall spend my pension on brandy and summer gloves
   And satin sandals, and say we’ve no money for butter...  Linked to whole poem.

Jenny Joseph wrote the quintessential post-war poem about women who age being free to express themselves

Miss Squish was in desperate need of a bath. I thought I'd just give her a quick dip in the kitchen sink. The kitchen and I got more of a bath than she did I think. But even though she fought the process she's a much sweeter smelling kitty tonight.
