 Worth their weight in gold

An  Email I received from a friend.  Just thought it was worth sharing: He was getting old and paunchy And his hair was falling fast, And he sat around the R.S.L., Telling stories of the past. Of a war that he once fought in And the deeds that he had done, In his exploits with […]


Hi folks………just been scrolling down my facebook page and I came across a post asking where the best place is to buy a cake for a cake smash photo………..well I had never heard of this so I scrolled on, it would seem its the latest thing to do……….you buy a gooey cake and let the […]

 Drongo and Galah……..

Well last evening I ventured into the community room, not been in for a while and must say I had forgotten how enjoyable it can be, very pleasant company and some laughs………..lactating and mastitis just some of the weird and wonderful subjects that were covered……..not forgetting breast pumps and nipple shields…..Oh the joys!!!…….. I guess […]

 What are you afraid of……..

Hi everyone, one thing I am afraid of is heights, never realised this till I was 13 and went on the big wheel at the fairground, the chair stopped at the top of the wheel and the girls I was with began to rock it, terrified isn’t the word……….deep still water, streams no problem……….when on […]

 Whats the answer…….

Watching the news unfold Saturday Evening, another terrorist attack on London Bridge, people killed, many injured, people saying its time to draw the line, as in don’t let anymore immigrants into the country.  That horse has bolted, they are already amongst us hundreds of them – frightening times and more ahead.  It isn’t going to […]

First, you survived being born to mothers who smoked and/or drank while they carried us. They took aspirin, ate blue cheese dressing, tuna from a tin, and didn’t […]

 Do The Right Thing…….

Q: Doctor, I’ve heard that cardiovascular exercise can prolong life. Is this true? A: Heart only good for so many beats, and that it… Don’t waste on exercise. […]

 Is Cybersex Classed As Cheating?

Hi folks…..hope this isn’t too controversial for a blog, but hey we are all adults are we not.  So myself and three of my real life friends have a debate going on about cybersex, two are females one a man. The question is, if a person is married and participating in cybersex is it classed as cheating?  Differing opinions, one says […]

 Millionaire Fortunes & Children

Maybe its just me that’s very skeptical, but yet again a multi millionaire states that he wont be leaving any of his fortune to his children, Gordon Ramsey made this statement a couple of weeks ago, he says his children  will have to make their own way in life to appreciate money and the realities of […]

 Do our children owe us……..

Why is it that some people think their children owe them for being given life, I think its extremely selfish of some parents( especially mothers ) to think their  adult children should be there at their  beck and call, in my opinion our children owe us nothing but respect and hopefully loyalty, they didn’t ask […]
