This and that

The dreaded lurgy is still hanging about and Holly and I are still suffering.  I am fed up of my throat feeling like sandpaper, feeling like I am swallowing glass, sneezing and the endless indignation that is a runny nose. Then there is the coughing.  I have coughed so much I am expecting to see parts of my lungs in the hankie.

The coughing and sneezing is a health hazard in itself as anyone who has had children will tell you. Sometimes you have a bit of warning and you manage to squeeze the pelvic floor muscles together before coughing and spluttering.  Other times there is no warning and you literally have to sprint like an Olympic runner for the toilet.  It brings multi tasking to a whole new level!


Poor Jack isn't getting much attention at the moment as I am trying desperately not to contaminate him so there is not the usual round of hugs and kisses which he usually has to fight off.  I am having withdrawal symptoms whereas he, I'm sure, is glad of the break! I think I am going to have to invest in one of those masks, you know, like they all wear in Japan and China!  Very attractive, NOT!

My car is in the garage getting fixed as there is a problem with the suspension.  Yesterday when I dropped it off, I was just driving into the car park when there it was............the poopy car!  It was parked just opposite me and when I got out of my car, I cursed myself for not having my camera or even my mobile with me, to capture the very essence of poop that I have been talking about!  Obviously someone else had reacted to the sight of the poopy car because one of it's wing mirrors was hanging off..........the other driver probably crashed into them while staring in disbelief at seeing shit on wheels!  Me thinks this is a potential hazard and therefore needs to be addressed people.

saw this @!

About an hour later, Kathy's husband, Brian, texts to say " you have really started something cos we are on the lookout for poopy cars while driving into town".  Two minutes later and their son James sent me a text saying "we've just spotted one and we think it has an Elgin number plate".  This really made me chortle and snigger cos I think I may have started a new travel game here!  I hasten to add that Brian and James live about 65 miles away so the poopy cars are definitely on the move, either that or there are more!!!

This looks like it is going to be a UK phenomenon.  The people buying these cars must think they're so cool.  I wonder if they looked at that colour and thought, how unusual, where have I seen that before? Look behind you people!  Before you know it, I am going to be on the news talking about the hazards of driving a shit coloured car.........ah fame at last.

Speaking of fame......I wish..... Sam @ A Redhead Named Sam gave me an award.

isn't it beautiful? she says, stroking it lovingly!
Thank you so much Sam, I like, I like it a LOT.

Once again, there are rules but hey you know what I am like with rules!  So I have to tell you some random stuff bout me, myself and I and then pass it onto some of my fav bloggers.

It's supposed to be 7 random things but my brain can't come up with them so this will have to do.

1)  I absolutely love love love the colour purple.  I am like a magpie, drawn to anything that colour and a very good friend, Suzi, once said to me "just cos it's purple doesn't mean it's classy" and she was soooooo right!
you know you want it!

2)  I was once chatting to this guy on a dating site for weeks and finally I plucked up the courage to speak to him on webcam.  When his pic appeared, he was sitting there stark naked with his legs crossed, hands wrapped around the hugest appendage I have ever seen!  Suffice to say, I disconnected tout sweet and I still couldn't tell you now what his face looked like!

3)  My favourite perfume is called Kenzo Classic perfume by Kenzo.  I first bought it on my honeymoon in 1989 and have loved it ever since. The bottle is just gorgeous.  I like a lot of others but this is my all time favourite.

Now I pass this award onto: - EmptyNest whom I have recently discovered and who makes me smile on a regular basis.  Hed above Water because I love the way she writes so honestly and I also have a sister with mental health issues and she has helped me to understand it a little bit more. The Simple Life because Odie is one of the beautiful people in the world, always fills his blog with really interesting stuff and has a devilish sense of humour.

So go and check them out and don't forget to tell them I sent you. Have a lovely day my little gigglers.


  1. I am sorry you guys are still sick...I wish it would go away.

    Blow Jack a kiss from me. :)

    I am laughing at the poopy car sightings tho'. What is up over there? I can't imagine it looks good.

    Congrats on your award! Can't wait to visit Emptynest and Odie is the biggest dear. He sends me the best recipes too! :)

  2. Awww, and may I add, YAY!

    Thanks bunches! <3


  3. Get well soon....and Congrats on the award.

  4. get well soon lovely lady.
    hugs to you and your family

  5. Thanks for the sweet words Lynne and I soooooooooooooo sorry you and Holly are still sick. Sometimes it takes like forever for that mess to leave us alone. Fortunately I have not seen any shit colored cars over here yet. Maybe it is a UK thing. For my wordless wednesday I have been seeing this dish phenomenum at different places where the new dish for sattelite service replaces the old huge versions. The big ones haven't been used for ages but I guess it is too big a job to take it down so they just leave it sitting there. Hope you feel better soon.

  6. Hi sweetie. I don't know how I lost you but I just hit the follow button again. I've been so busy with moving and all so I don't know when I'll ever catch up on everyone's blog but going forward I sure will. Hope all is well in your world. As well as can be anyway right? Hugs.

  7. Oh my! Imagine my surprise when I got to the end of your post! Wow, thank you so very much for thinking of me!

    The poopy car thing? I have been on the look out for them over here...haven't seen one yet, but you've got me searching! LOL

  8. So sorry to hear that you and poor Holly are still suffering so much. It's really horrible, especially the coughing. Wonder if you will need a course of anti-biotics to finally knock it on the head? I'm delighted to say that I haven't seen any of those poopy colour cars down here in Devon. I should be glad if you would keep then all up in Scotland please!! hEY, congratulations on your Award - totally well deserved if I may say so. Take care.

    I've been looking for shit cars/trucks ever since your frist post about them, but haven't seen any yet.. Lots of white vehicles here in WI tho :)

  12. Kellie - I know, I'm coming back as a man next time! I think that's why I like the perfume so much, it's just so different. LOL I love that you are all looking at the colour of cars!

  13. Congrats on the award! You're tonsils are your first line of defense against disease so be glad your throat hurts because without those tonsils you would be much sicker! Ha I have been paying attention in one class Biology :D Feel better so you can hug and kiss the hell out of Jack!

  14. Wow that webcam story reminds me of the time I went to the zoo and the zebra that we saw had the biggest wank I've ever seen. It was disturbing yet I couldn't stop looking at it...
