Jeff and I do try to be the best “Perans” we can be! ❤️
Merry Christmas Folks!
Hi folks 😊 long time no speak/write. I’ve been reblogging some of my old posts, not out of laziness but more out of starting a new job, which is fab but on a personal level not finding much sunshine over the past few week.
There’s everyone “Ooooh I’m all ready for Christmas, everything bought, everything wrapped bla bla bla ……” and then there’s Me – “hmmmm should I be making a list or something” 😳
I decided I had to take control of the situation and me and Jeffrey decided to go Christmas shopping today – together – alone – quite frankly this is always a bad idea! He’s like an elderly parent – you turn your back and he’s wandered off somewhere, so I then have to spend the next half hour looking for him!
We got 2nd born to babysit the girls and gathered our stuff together. “Where are you going?” asked 4th born accusingly
“We’re going to the Zoo – to buy a cage to put you and your sister in” I replied – they have been little beasts lately 😳
Without batting an eyelid she replied “I want the biggest cage – not her!” 😄
I hope you are all doing better than I am with your Christmas plans – if you’ve managed to bag yourself a turkey and a Christmas pudding – I’ll be joining you on the 25th! 😄
Thank you folks for still giving me the odd few likes, follows and comments 😜 I know that following me recently is like following a three legged donkey!
However I’m still here, although I did have trouble logging on to WordPress – it just kept logging me out – I’m sure I heard some sniggers and a few mutterings of “You’re having a fucking laugh trying to get back on here – after dumping us for so long” 😜
What can I say – my mojo has taken a bit of a beating lately for various reasons and I’ve had loads happening – some good and some not so good but my mojo is no longer a mofo and I’m back again!
I hope you’re all ok and I look forward to catching up on your blogs 😊 We’re off to the Christmas Party for the kids at Jeff’s works tomorrow – it involves a Pantomime and a visit to Santa – although I’m not sure they are convinced anymore of how genuine this Santa is – mainly because fourth born said he was picking his nose last year! 😳 and no doubt she’ll tell him this year ………….
I’ll let you know how it goes 😜
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.
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 😛
