Party Party 

Went to collect Jacks amazing cake this morning (thank you Claire) and was fairly anxious about it’s onward journey. “Don’t worry” said Claire “it’s heavy so it won’t move around in the car” Erm. That doesn’t help me getting it to the car. “You’ll be fine” she said “but then again I’ll take it because I know what you’re like” How rude 😂

Cake is now safely in the kitchen side as Mark transferred it the other end and I have started the party food cooking. So far I’ve cooked frozen sausages with hats on; I can no longer call them sausage rolls as their bottoms are stuck fast on my baking tray – and cocktail sausages; fortunately I only need to put a cocktail stick in one side of them, should be able to find an semi soft piece of flesh ……


Sitting in packed hospital waiting room, I rifle around in my bag, desperately trying to find my pack of tissues for my running nose. Relieved, I see a flash of the green plastic pack and whip it out, lift up the flap and realise it is a sanitary towel! Time to change packagings! 

May The Force Be with you 

So our long awaited trip to see the latest Star Wars arrived today. We’d planned to go with Geri and Sam and to meet outside the cinema at 1.15 for 1.30 start.  Mark and I set off from Lowestoft but it took longer to get into Norwich than expected and after a couple of  phone calls between us agreed to meet them in the cinema and they would look out for us. Mark and I got our tickets and headed to the screen but we could Not see Geri and Sam. I broke a cardinal sin and rang them from the auditorium.  Sam answered and said they were in screen 2. Bugger. We’re in screen7.  I went into screen 2 but still couldnt find them. I got back to my seat and the text came “What cinema you at?”

“Oh no” I said to Mark “I bet they’ve gone to Vue” (in Norwhich). I text back that we were at the Odeon and where were they. 

In bloody Lowestoft that’s where! Honestly. You couldn’t make it up! 

New Year Nuts

Lovely. Getting old. Settled in and got ready for New Year. Amaretto and coke,Night at the Museum and peanuts. 

Yum. I love peanuts. 

Mark: are they the peanuts I knocked all over the floor earlier? 

I mean, why would you put them back in the peanut bowl?! 

Still. Not quite as bad as the friend who attempted to enjoy the complimentary peanuts with his drinks in Spain. They were so hard they just wouldn’t crunch down. And then he realised the other people on his table were enjoying the olives ……. with stones  😂

Keys o keys

So yesterday Mark locked me in the house and I could not find the keys anywhere. After 20 minutes of hunting I started to panic and decided to ring him. On the third attempt I managed to get through to be told he’d left my keys on the kitchen side. I argued they weren’t there for a few minutes before I picked up the duster I had put down …….
