Cherished.

x

For a while now, I have been missing my childhood and school friends, weren’t those the days? ☺️
Except I now feel the need to make you smile instead, by simply letting you know that I too miss you and love you – as friends. 😜
If it’s a one way street, that’s ok too, just know that I care, regardless.
Thank YOU, for always accepting me for who I am.
For sharing / making some of those cherished memories with me.
Thank YOU, to old friends and new,, for remaining besides me, for continuing to be there still.
Thank YOU also, for being one of the reasons why I smile.

A Whole New Definition.

Seeing people’s reactions as they learn when the baby was born is by far, amusing.

The best so far has to be my GP’s, who was surprised and said “Gosh! 😳 That puts a whole new definition on Christmas Day!”

The look on the postman’s face as he found out when the baby was born was absolutely priceless! His jaw dropped and said “No way?!” I’m like, “Yes way!” 😝

“What a day to be born on!” as a friend exclaimed.

To be continued, of course…

Like Mother, Like Daughter.

I was watching the new Yorkshire Vet programme with my daughter. When the Narrator goes, “…. has a farm…. And on that farm they have a donkey….”

Daughter and I both look at one another, we simultaneously said “A-ee-i-o!”

Cue our laughter. 🙂 🙂 🙂

She has been taught well?!

😛 😛 😛

Whoopsie!

My kids were bought a small pot each of “Whoopee Putty” by their Nana – a very simple thing which has given them the giggles. Thanks muchly Mother!

If only my children knew I once had a whoopee cushion… And that I played a trick on my father in law. Yes… You read that right, father in law.

Extremely brave, I know.

Their living room was full of siblings, aunts, cousins but not the father. So… We waited until the perfect moment, for his father to return and just before he sat down, the whoopee cushion was then discreetly positioned.

Phhhwwwwaaarrrrttttt!

He shot back up again in shock!

And oh my days…

The rest of us were howling with laughter and crying from the pains of laughing….

One of my favourite memories indeed. ❤️

Laughter, is the best medicine….

Tears Of Strength

“People cry, not because they’re weak. It’s because they’ve been strong for too long.”

~ Johnny Depp.

Even the strongest people inevitably crack a little with time. In having to be strong for others whilst trying to remain strong for my own sake is proving to be a challenge yet again. I thought I was doing rather well until such reminders started to revive the heartache, the memories and the love once more.

It is okay, to cry. It does after all, clean our tear ducts out! 🙂

In addition, it releases the built up pressure that little bit more.

I often tell my friends, (strangers also) whenever I recognize their struggles, that I am such a good listener that I now have to wear hearing aids. This always makes them smile and perhaps even, laugh. Job done? 🙂

I hope, with time, someone will be able to take my pain away but until then, I shall continue to be here and there, just for you.

You’re Not Alone!

Lonely

When I first saw this, I just had to laugh for it reminded me of all the times I would text my hearing friends in the very early hours of the morning, saying “Wakey, Wakey! 😛 :-P”

Or text them numerous times just to make their phones vibrate / beep more than it should.

The smile in my heart is a mischievous one 😛
