A changing of the guard!

So Christmas has been and gone, and I didn't even notice! Back in the day, I'd always have a houseful. When the kids were little, Mum, Dad and my brother would come to us for the day, and I'd revel in producing a grand dinner, a yummy tea, having fun, and enjoying the company. As...

You’ve got to laugh, haven’t you?

Well, it just keeps coming at me, and things keep going wrong, but you know what? Not bothered anymore! I have chosen to roll with it, laugh off the silly/embarrassing stuff, embrace it even, and just plod along as best and however I can. Having gone to doc about the tiredness, dizziness and visual disturbances,... Continue Reading →

My Garden, my sanctuary.

During this enforced 'rest' that my body, and the doctors, have made me have..I have found a new, bigger enthusiasm for my garden(s). It is something I can do as and when I feel well enough, and for as long, or as short as breathing and joints dictate, without upsetting anyone, letting anyone down, or... Continue Reading →

Blessings, and silver linings!

Just found this in the trash bit! No idea why I didn't publish it, but is as relevant now as it was then, so here you go! I know, I know, my last one was a bit morose...but it was how I felt at the time! Weirdly though, it seems to have been cathartic too,... Continue Reading →

Sleep? Pah!

I love my bed, and I love a good sleep...I don't get to enjoy either very much these days, although there are times I can't get enough of either too...but not very frequently 😦 As soon as I became a mother, 36 years ago, it seemed that every little noise the baby made woke me... Continue Reading →

Nicknames! Why? and How?

When I were a lass, my lovely Dad, for whatever reason, always called me Fanny Fanackapan....Fanny or Fan for short. Obviously it would have different connotations in this day and age, but I think it was a reference to me being a bit of a mare back then. My brother was originally Bladder Bonce, due...

Puddy Tats……coming to an end?

There have always been cats in my life. Mum and Dad bought 2 kittens when they got married and moved into their own home...Three and Six....2 tabby sisters who cost 3/6d each (3 shillings and sixpence for you youngsters 🙂 )...hence the names. So when I and my brother arrived, they were already part of... Continue Reading →

Neighbours! Ecky Thump!

I've always been lucky with neighbours, apart from the odd niggle I've never had any problems. Don't get me wrong, I still have lovely neighbours....but.......sometimes....Aaaaarrrgggghhhhh! Being in a GFF is a whole different ball-game...mainly because my garden is open, no fencing...just a path from 'our' gate separating us at the front, and down the back,... Continue Reading →
