A picture paints a thousands words.

This hangs proudly in my kitchen. It has gotten me through many's a dark and dismal winter's day.
I need say no more as it speaks volumes!

What's happening???

I like to have a look at the stats for my blog every so often. I usually get between 50 and 100 hits every day, which I am very happy with.
Since the start of this week, things have exploded a bit. I'm getting between 800 and 1000 daily hits! I have NO idea why this has happened. So I just wonder......
if you are a newbie to this site, where did you hear about it?
Thanks.....and welcome :)

Is this not the best chat up line.... EVER!

I was out in town (Mullingar) on Saturday night. We ended up in Club Bed. It was there that something happened to me that hasn't happened to me in years.
A guy asked me out to dance!!!
Does that even still happen any more?
After I had recovered from the shock, we took to the dance floor to throw a few shapes. Then he asked me if I'd like a drink.
It would have been impolite to refuse.
He came back from the bar with it, handed it to me and then came out with the ultimate chat up line.

"I won't beat about the bush. I have a woman at home....but you're very pretty!

I nearly spluttered out my vodka and coke.
Well at least he was honest I suppose. Most men would leave out that bit until much later in the relationship!

Stressful times

I am heading away for the weekend so I had to have a last minute leg wax. My usual beauticians was booked out so I had to go to another one in Enfield.
As I was lying there, feeling very prone,I explained to her that I had been very wary about going to a local beauticians as my biggest fear is that I will be waxed by an ex-pupil, that I may once have given extra homework to.
Disgruntled pupil+offending teacher+hot wax=PAIN!
She laughed and told me about her most embarrassing moment.
She was working in a spa and went to the relaxation room to collect her next clients for their massage. Who was it only.....
Her ex-boyfriend and his new girlfriend!
"OH MY GOD!" I shrieked. "What did you do?"
"I didn't let on I knew him until we got to the massage room. My colleague took the girlfriend and I took him. Luckily we had parted on good terms so I just told him to go to sleep and forget who I was."
Very noble of her, but I would have taken great pleasure in the fact that he was now paying for something that he used to get for nothing!

Testing Times

It's that dreaded time of the year again.....summer tests. There is only one thing worse than doing a test, having to correct 25 of them!
Today I was correcting their History. One of the questions was
Name 2 types of archaeologists.
The majority of the class gave the correct answer, namely
Classical archaeologists study ancient Greek and Roman times.
Egyptologists study ancient Egypt.

However one bright spark answered........
Seamus!

Ya gotta have a sense of humour!

Finian the Minnion!

Ah, I remember the summer of 2014 so well. It fell on a Saturday!
Luckily it was last Saturday when Finian and Marese held a family BBQ to celebrate their daughter Emma's birthday. It was also a send off party for her as she is travelling around South America/Australia/Thailand for the next six months.
Lucky b****. I gave her some sound advice.
Grab every opportunity....except maybe for the drug smuggling. Remember two important words PERU 2.
It was a glorious day and a great time was had by all.
Of course Megan, Emma's god-daughter had to help her blow out the candles.
Megan's favourite film is Despicable Me 2 and she brings her minnion everywhere with her. When we told her that
"Finian is a minnion"
she thought this was hilarious.
It was only on closer inspection of Finian's wardrobe choice for the day, that we realised that this was a lot nearer to the truth than we realised!!!
