Just a bit of good humour


There's nothing the matter with me,
I'm just as healthy as can be,
I have arthritis in both knees,
And when I talk, I talk with a wheeze.
My pulse is weak, my blood is thin,
But I'm awfully well for the shape I'm in.

All my teeth have had to come out,
And my diet I hate to think about.
I'm overweight and I can't get thin,
But I'm awfully well for the shape I'm in.

And arch supports I need for my feet.
Or I wouldn't be able to go out in the street.
Sleep is denied me night after night,
But every morning I find I'm all right.
My memory's failing, my head's in a spin.
But I'm awfully well for the shape I'm in.

Old age is golden I've heard it said,
But sometimes I wonder, as I go to bed.
With my ears in a drawer, my teeth in a cup,
And my glasses on a shelf, until I get up.
And when sleep dims my eyes, I say to myself,
Is there anything else I should lay on the shelf?

The reason I know my Youth has been spent,
Is my get-up-and-go has got-up-and-went!
But really I don't mind, when I think with a grin,
Of all the places my get-up has been.

I get up each morning and dust off my wits,
Pick up the paper and read the obits.
If my name is missing, I'm therefore not dead,
So I eat a good breakfast and jump back into bed.
The moral of this as the tale unfolds,
Is that for you and me, who are growing old.
It is better to say "I'm fine" with a grin,
Than to let people know the shape we are in.

Life is having a laugh - at me !

Well there i was, struggling to get my head around everything in my new job when hey presto, guess what ? i end up in casualty because the bottom of my left foot collapsed.
So im into my second week on the sick this week, and feeling pretty fed up, chaseing around to try and get some money to get us through this time whilst im off.
My head is totally done in with forms, phone calls and paper work, it would have been easier to be at work :(

Truth is im actually missing my job, i love mixing and dealing with the public, im pretty good at it too if i say so myself lol, i know its hard work and there are a few hiccups here and there, but in general i really like it.
The staff have all been really great with me, very patient and giving, and already i think i have found my go to buddies.

I was just starting to take a young lad under my wing, hes such a funny charector, but what a lil gentleman, or maybe he was taking me under his wing, either way i miss him.

Other staff members were just starting to show there true colours too so i hope that doesnt change by the time i get back as it was so much more relaxed.

Apart from that ive been using the time to try and get my head around xmas and what i need for pressies ect, ive got some bits and pieces but ive still got a ways to go yet.

Im looking forward to spending the day out shopping with both of my beautiful daughters tommorow, its a rare occurance for us all to be together these days so im quite excited about it, i dont much care about my shopping as long as they are happy and get what they need :)

Anyway, thats me caught up again for now, il post again soon and hopefully have some more gift ideas and tutorials for you in the very near future.

Personal Update- life goes on

Well who would have guessed that there would be so many changes in my life this past month, i have finally taken a part time job at a local home wares store near where i live.
Whats so exciting about that you may ask ?
well i havent been employed in over 20 years because i chose to care for my disabled son at home until he passed away in january, not only that but i hadnt left my home alone in over six years until i started my job last monday, so some really big changes for me just now.

How am i finding work after all this time ?
Hard, hard on the body as im using muscles i havent used in ages, my poor feet are getting hammerd in hobnail boots with steel toe caps that weigh a ton, but hey, its a job right lol.

My brain is getting frazzled with codes and numbers and computers, i seriously dont think at this moment in time il ever get the gist of it all but il hang on in their and see what happens lol.

On top of that great news, my youngest daughter took a weekend job in a bar, just to earn her some pocket money whilst shes still at collage, shes really enjoying it so far, and my husband has put an application in for a job , all in the same week so you can imagine my head is still reeling lol.

So forgive me if i fall a little behind with some posting guys, but i will get back into it on a regular basis again once i find my feet and can learn to pace myself a little better, as lately my pc time has been really limited, so please bare with me.

Take care for now my friends and watch this space for more updates :) xxx
