Wednesday's whack…

Good morning my fellow bloglings!!

Hope the morning is treating you good so far.

I could do with some more sleep – had my eldest visiting here last night.

But it was a good visit.

We made fish cakes πŸ˜‰

Had a visit at work yesterday before I left for the interview.

The ex…

Tells me I’m the most intelligent woman he knows, but that my mouth always gets me into trouble.

Which I know.

As for the most intelligent woman – yes well…

Thanks guy!!

We’re beginning to think there’s something wrong with my ex.

His behaviour of late is completely out of character.

Not that he’s a bad person, it’s just that he’s usually not the first one to compliment me.

Rather the opposite.

And that’s been par for the course for the past 11 years.

The sudden change of demeanor might be the result of a brain tumour or something!

Maybe he’s just decided that a new leaf for the new year might be a good thing.

Or he got tired of always fighting.

Maybe he’s just relaxed now that he’s starting to get older πŸ˜‰

Whatever the reasoning – it kind of makes me a tad uncomfortable.

Don’t quite know how to handle the new ex.

At least with the fighting I knew what to do for the most part.

But hey.

Not as if I see the bloke on a regular basis, so I’m sure I can stand the few times I do see him.

Why, do you think, the cat would lie on the mousepad?

On the desk?

It’s hard and uncomfortable, yet he makes it seem like the most desirably spot in the house!

And, as a result, I can’t move my mouse – have to use the laptop’s mouse and that’s not quite as comfy as the actual mouse.

Oh well, maybe he just wants to be closer to me πŸ˜‰

Anyhow folks.

Enjoy the day – may it contain more good than bad.

And let us all be thankful for the little things in life…


A woman in a supermarket is following a grandfather and his badly behaved 3 year-old grandson.
It’s obvious to her that he has his hands full with the child screaming for sweets in the sweet aisle, biscuits in the biscuit aisle; and for fruit, cereal and pop in the other aisles.
Meanwhile, Granddad is working his way around, saying in a controlled voice, “Easy, William, we won’t be long, easy, boy.”
Another outburst, and she hears the granddad calmly say, “It’s okay, William, just a couple more minutes and we’ll be out of here. Hang in there, boy.”
At the checkout, the little terror is throwing items out of the cart, and Granddad says again in a controlled voice, “William, William, relax buddy,  don’t get upset. We’ll be home in five minutes; stay cool, William.”

Very impressed, the woman goes outside where the grandfather is loading his groceries and the boy into the car.  She said to the elderly gentleman, “It’s none of my business, but you were amazing in there. I don’t know how you did it. That whole time, you kept your composure, and no matter how loud and disruptive he got, you just calmly kept saying things would be okay. William is very lucky to have you as his grandpa..”

“Thanks,” said the grandfather, “but I’m William …….the little sh*t’s name is Kevin.”

  1. Your ex seems to be quite consistent with his praise recently. He’s probably just come to his senses after all these years. πŸ˜‰ xxx

  2. Did the fish enjoy the cakes you made for them? :)Either he has at last started appreciating your sterling qualities, or he wants something …I think I would have threatened the little brat with grievous bodily harm. A lot simpler.

  3. My sterling qualities?Really Col! Kind of you to say, but he probably wants something ;-)As for the fishcakes – think we enjoyed it more than the fish did πŸ˜‰
