Happy Mondays!

I got to thinking urghhhh!*?*"
it's that monday morning feeling after a great relaxing weekend
andwe all need our shot our drugs of choice
to set us up for the week ahead,
be it caffiene, tea, croissants, slathered toast, a fry up or wotnot...

So I have brought you the best of this weekends treasures from my own inbox...

If these don't put you in a better frame of mind, there is little hope for you frankly!

and this one courtesy of Familyaffairs
which is entitled, 'Are women born this way?'

this one is perpetually being sent to me!
'Man flu' or as I now call it, 'Are men born this way?'

and finally need I say more?


  1. Oh my...did I laugh, got to get dad up here to see these.

    What with these and ML really happy it is going to be a great, relaxing too?

  2. ok.. so i am going to simply link to your post today.. as those are just entirely too damn funny not to share!!! thanks for the belly laugh on this monday morning!! :D

    blessings, and have a great week!

  3. Its going to be an excellent week ... it ends for me on Weds at 5 when I leave the office to go home and pack for VA Blogfest ... really looking forward to it and taking lots of pix .. thanks for the giggles to set the week off on the right/left foot!

  4. LOL! The problem is, the one "Are Men Born that Way?" is that, this is what men hear when we, women, ask them to do something for us!

  5. Love the babies - I kept thinking "Wow, how are they doing that?" Derr.

  6. Loved the baby one, but after a while it was just a bit spooky!

  7. HI Saz, have had a lovely time catching up with you (and about time, you may say). I loved this last post - those clips really made me laugh. You are on very good for, and I must say belated congratulations on your Blogging anniversary too. M xx

  8. I needed a good laugh, and this was just the ticket. I can't believe how that Evian baby video has gotten so popular.

  9. As a child I was always puzzled by The Boom Town Rats 'I Don't Like Mondays'. Now I hate Mondays too!

  10. They were just the tonic I needed tonight :D thank you for you wonderful posts! Now where's the Gin ;) x

  11. My Partner has a Cold at the moment and he definitely is suffering from the Man Flu :)

Thanks for stopping by!

Take the weight of your feet, draw up a chair and pour yourself a cuppa. Leave your troubles at the door and together we shall ride out the storms.
I will walk a while in your shoes...

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…


..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…

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…
