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 😛

Eeh Bah Gum!

Ever since I knocked on death’s door the very first time several years ago, I became ultra-aware of life itself, cherishing each little smile, touch, taste, smell and sight. In complete awe at the miracles of Nature’s designs, always.

Upon realising the fragility of life, and the stark reality of the dangers that exist all around us – it has not been an easy ride. Being extra conscious of conflicts and trivialities, my heart longs for peace and love while my head wants to drown out the cacophonies of life.

Life is precious and extremely short. I cannot put into words just how short it can be unless you realise in such a moment, suddenly understanding what it means.

Due to the nature of the operation, I had and why, I know I will one day need another operation and that time is slowly but surely, approaching. Putting off going to the doctors will not help but delay and prolong any fears of another drawn out nightmare that I do not wish to put others or myself through again.so courage will have to come into play once more.

Soon because first, I am going to create another memorable moment for the kids to cherish, by introducing them to the Angel of the North, first spreading her wings in 1998, rising some 20 metres from the earth, dominating the skyline and majestically dwarfing all those who pay her a visit. It is an experience, they will not forget.
