Its all an Illusion

Went to see Sam Bailey at The Marina in Lowestoft. Whilst watching the support acts, I kept wondering why a girl with Leister roots and who doesn’t sing country songs would have a cowboy hat propped up at the side of the drums. When she came on, the hat began to move and I realised it was a strange shaped light. It’s all an illusion ………


One day I exited our back garden via the gate with my brother. We started walking down an alleyway, which was on a downward slope, and I was amazed at a gigantic green cactus in one of the gardens. How could this happen in England? I was in awe. Perhaps it’s artificial? Or perhaps it’s a collapsed whirly line with a bright green cover …



One night I was stood in the garden with Geri whilst she had a ciggie. It was a lovely clear night and the stars were bright, I was awe struck by the biggest and lowest stars I had ever seen. They were so clear and spellbinding and there were two of them symmetrical to each corner of my garden fence. I called Mark out to take in this wonderful piece of nature, only for him to blow it all out of the water and explain they were street lights from the road behind the trees at the end of the garden.



Dog Tales

Staying at a friends in Lincolnshire and walking her dog Bella today. I forgot the tennis ball and the call back treats but remembered the poo bags (lovely!) Luckily she found a tennis ball in the undergrowth en-route and I have never seen a dog looked so pleased. She dropped it at my feet, I threw it, she nudged it with her nose …. straight through a slatted fence into the playground of a school. So ensued me trying to explain to a dog that I could not retrieve said ball and eventually we were on our way. On the way back I had a eureka moment – find a stick. Stick found, I tried to fish the ball towards the fence, but each time I did, Bella in her excitement to get it – nudged it back in. Eventually we were on the same hymn sheet. My coat is covered in green slime from said fence, my white boots covered in mud, but Bella is happy. Not sure if the ditzy one is me or her!

Mini or Maxi

Watching tv tonight with Mark I was excited to see an old yellow mini.

“I used to have a mini like that”

Mark: Sure its not a maxi?

Me: Oh ok. I used to have a mini that colour and a blue maxi

Mark: No. It was a mini, I was making a joke about size

Doh! Fell for it again

Wine Wine Wine

Mark: do you want a drink

Me: Yes please. I’ll have another glass of wine

Mark: You don’t need another glass of wine (I’m trying to stop). Look into my eyes. You don’t need another glass of wine

Me: I’ve looked into you eyes. I definitely need another glass of wine!

As he would say – “you walked into that one!” #alcohol #wine #chardonnay #relationships #humour #communication

Non Sliding Doors

My box of work bits is safely stored in the conservatory but tonight I needed to extract my fob to return to my last place of work. I opened the sliding doors, took off the lid of the box, got my fob and closed the door behind me. Somehow (🤣🤣) the box lid landed perfectly in place to prevent the door from opening any more than a fraction. Luckily the long stick and husband came to the rescue. I honestly do not do these things on purpose! #ditzy #humour #mylife #conservatory
