A very special mam

Today is Mam's birthday. I went into the shop to get her a card. as usual!
I searched among the "Special Mam" cards to find a suitable one. I particularly liked the sentiment on this one.
....a blessed day,
because it is another one for us to share......

I have just had a message from my sister , who was visiting Mam this afternoon. It was a photo of my card and a question!

"Noeleen, should you have gone to SpecSavers?"
I guess I should have!!!

You're never fully dressed without a smile.

I was paying at the till in Marks and Spencer's.
"Here's a voucher for 20% off Men's".
"THERE'S 20% OFF MEN!" I exclaimed.
"Oh I wish!", she replied.
We were having the craic when the cashier beside us looked over, did a bit of a double take and asked
"Weren't you on Operation Transformation?"

I got a shock as it's been three years and I figure people have forgotten it by now.
"Well, yes", I replied.
"I thought so", she said. "I recognised your smile and your laugh!"

I got a touch of the fuzzy wuzzys! I mean, if that's what I'm remembered for, well...

Fair exchange is no robbery

I was delighted to meet up with Lucy, my fellow Operation Transformation leader.

As proof as to how much the show changed us, I brought...
homemade Oaty Banana buns.

In return Lucy gave me home grown potatoes from her garden.

We couldn't have done that pre-OT!
