Spreading the text

Yesterday my bloggy pal Suburbia, was talking about her mother's new found agility at texting. 

Apparently, no technophobes, no slow learners these, our 'older' mothers.

On Sunday, my Mum sent me a message enquiring as to our plans for the day. I texted her back to say I was working and I would catch up her later.

Within a heartbeat she texted back with and I quote...  

'Who the fuck visits a Museum on Easter Sunday.....?'  

If she could receive images on her phone, I would have sent her pictures of the fuckers!

Be very afraid!


  1. Hee hee, they have one track minds, got to love 'em tho!

  2. Your Mum sounds great. I know that when I turned sixty last year I was so excited. Now I can say and do what I like and blame it on my age, LOL


  3. that's just hilarious! your mom sounds like a great pal.. that's wonderful :D

  4. From your mom! She sounds cool, and really, who does visit a museum on Easter sunday?

  5. Fabulous. My own Mother would be very proud. Best not tell her though or she may try to copy!

  6. I love it! She sounds just like me. ;)

    It's great when you can shock your children instead of the other way round.

  7. Oh, my gosh! This post made me laugh! What your mother was really saying was: "what kind of fuckers don't visit their mother on Easter day?"


  8. I think it would be neat to go to a museum on Sunday. But as you saw from my photos....the family fun won out for Easter.

  9. Mothers can't say that word. They don't know that word. Do they?

  10. Tut tut!
    She might have a point though! Museums are not for Easter Sunday! can go anytime!

  11. Oh that made me laugh. I wouldn't have the guts to even post it without using asterisks!!

  12. Does this mean i can do anything I like after my sixtieth in October - I'm so looking forward to it!!!!

  13. Predictive text strikes again?!

  14. I'm in an internet cafe in Willesdon Green [see, can't keep away] And I am blushing!!!!!

    You mother who needs to wash out her mouth.

  15. And THIS is one reason why I love your mum! Calls 'em as she sees 'em.

  16. I had to laugh at this one. My mom had a mouth like a sailor and would think nothing of it. I didn't matter who was around or what was going on. There were times when it was down right embarrasing like at my wedding when she argued with the minister's wife to the point the wife walked out of the wedding!! Her mouth was so bad that I did not call her when I went into delivery for my last child until after he was born and we were at home!!

    My mom was 63 when she passed.

Tesco - every little helps

Last year I bought myself a new camera online from Tesco. One of those emails arrived in my inbox with a 'deal of the day'  and for me the camera was the dog bollocks, in as much as it had a large 8 mega pixel whatsit .... and a large LCD, and yes I do like things big.. say no more! Oh and it is red! which is almost as good as purple but not quite, like size colour of inanimate objects does matter. It was a great price and the bonus was that it came with a, yes you guessed it, large  memory card. Total cost £74.
It arrived quickly but not with the promised memory card, so I contacted Tesco and they apologised, told me they'd run out and would credit me for the cost of the memory card. I found to my surprise a credit of £36.99 in my bank account, so the camera was only £37! I bought the same memory card from Amazon for a few pounds only, so a  result, thank you Tesco!
A few weeks ago my girlfriend's washing machine broke down in its last month before the 12 month warranty…

What a difference....

a year makes!

It has taken me the better part of the last month, to access my blogs (and Moannie's) as I feared it had alas been removed from the ether. Playing around with passwords and email addresses...I'm in again.

My last post , just 10 months ago...burst my seams, as again I realised how so much has changed!

I'm still,  in my new wee home, with Joey (dog) and Monty (cat).

My lovely son has returned from uni in the USA, attained a First Class degree and started work in London last Autumn as a writer...the world his oyster for the taking! My hero!

My beautiful daughter is in Leeds, amid her Midwifery degree, working at a Brazilian first class restaurant, all loved up with the Spanish Chef.... a meeting is on the cards AND he is taking her to meet his Mama is Spain this summer, so must be serious methinks! So proud!

My hugely supportive brother (TOAOS) is living contently in the Garden of England with his wife and Harry the cutest dog!!

My younger and what a stunner sis…


..and here we are firmly into a new year and I am sitting up wide awake in bed, yet again... I am reflecting upon what was in 2013 and what wasn't.

The 'what wasn'ts ' are left where they are, filed and duly noted, I shall unremember them.

However for the 'what was' ' and that which I choose to bring with me into 2014, are the things that are memorable, enriching, happy and surprising, be them the tiniest fragment of joy or the biggest new thing on the block!

I didn't get off to a great start in January as we had only recently lost Mumma a few months before, the countdown to my son's second year of uni starting mud summer in the States and i was in the middle of a roller-coaster of negotiations trying to secure a business lease and plan for a potential opening. I wasn't at my best and i was running low on fuel.

However as always when faced with a challenge I was defiant and rose to several occasions, decisions with all the positivity I could mus…
