Compassion and kindness

I really can’t bear seeing videos of folk on Facebook “doing good deeds” like handing out clothes or food to the homeless and less fortunate.

Who are they doing it for?  Do they really think that person wants to be splashed all over Social Media?  Maybe all they have left is a little pride and self-respect – which is torn away when they are used in this way!

Please don’t stop giving – don’t stop caring – but do it from the heart.

Show you care via fund raising, which raises awareness and inspires others to do the same.

Do it simply because you care about your fellow man.

Do it because you feel compassion.

Do it because you have a roof over your head and food in your tummy.

Please don’t do it for praise or for “likes” on Facebook – because when you do – you cheapen the act of kindness.


Disillusioned 😳

Having a browse through the “buying and selling” sites and I come across this:

For sale: An Occasional Table, good condition 😳

What on earth is an “Occasional Table?”

Does this mean you’re a table – Monday to Friday – but on the weekend you turn into a giraffe called Gordon and entertain the public with a series of party tricks?

Poor little disillusional table – once a table, always a table 😛


Plum 🍒

Third born was telling us about another school girl who has a very well developed chest.

Fourth born looked on in interest and tried to pass some support to her sister by saying

“She only has big boobs because she’s a Plum!”

We both look at her confused

“Do you mean Plump Lana?” 😀

“Yes” she replied “that’s what I said, she’s a plum”

I’m now working my way to “Plum Status” as I type 😜

“Unclean! – Unclean!”😳

Oh dear, it’s all abit doom and gloom in the household at the moment 😳

First born done his knee in at Football and is on crutches for the next 4-6 weeks.  As a consequence he’s moved back home seeing as he can’t manage the three flights of stairs to get to his flat.  I’m not sure he realises I’ve  done it as an investment for my old age and I have to move in with him when I can no longer manage my stairs! 😃

Third born came home from school yesterday after swallowing or inhaling a pen top! 😨  After seeing the Doctor we decided it was swallowed – seeing as she wasn’t wheezing and still breathing!  Doctor told me to “keep a look out” for offending top – but I told him it’s ok – she does have other pens she can use! 😜

I had my flu jab last Saturday and feel like crap.  I’m shuffling around the house in an oversized dressing gown and demanding First born on crutches makes me tea – it’s not as if he’s hurt his arms is it! 😳

I tried to jolly myself up by playing my tunes 😃 as I bopped around to “I love to Boogie” by T Rex – swirling oversized dressing gown around with me Third born stood at the door – she watched me for a while, with undisguised admiration and then said

“Mom – don’t!” 😜😜😜


He’s got a crush on me ❤


I think my bank manager has a crush on me ❤ he sends me a letter at the end of every month 😜

Course this was an assumption I made about the butcher.  Just before Christmas last year he asked me if I had any idea what I would like ordered for Christmas.  I gave him a coy smile and told him not to go to any trouble – chocolates or chanel perfume would be fine 😁

It’s been “One of those weeks” 😳

I’ve had “One of those Weeks” 😟

The nice thing was Jeffrey returned from France – I’m sure after half an hour he was wishing he was back there! 😄

He walked in the door and straight into a full blown conversation that had me explaining to Fourth born that she wouldn’t just “grow a penis because she wanted to!” 😳

Third born was complaining because her school shoes fell to bits – after three weeks of wear!  Ok, I opted for the cheap ones so I guess that was my fault.  I read up everything I could find about legal rights when returning shoddy goods – because of course I hadn’t bothered to keep the receipt!  I memorised and quoted the law like a top class barrister and off I trotted to the shoe shop, like a fighter going in to battle!

The Manager took one look at the shoes and refunded in full – without me saying a word!  I was sooooo disappointed – I learnt all that information for nothing!  😳

I’ve worked almost non-stop this week to earn some extra money for Christmas and I’ve just finished my last nightshift for this week.  Seeing as I have tonight off and have a date with Jeffrey I decide to have a luxurious bath before I take myself off to bed 😊

I then decide the bath needs a clean before I soak my weary, hairy little legs in it.  I discover I’ve run out of bath cleaner so I used Harpic Limescale Remover 😳

Now, instead of smelling of Camomile and Bamboo Milk luxury bubble bath – I smell of a pine forest or a toilet! 😳

I’m going to tell Jeff that I smell like I do to remind him of a romantic date walking through the forest, watching the squirrels and listening to the birds sing 😜 I think my chances of a shag are zero!

Have a good weekend folks! 😃
