Hello all, thank you for comments again and welcome to some new followers. Seems more people are finding me now, since I gave up trying to make my blog private. Not that I mind - I've got over trying to 'discourage' some people reading - if they insist on going to the trouble of finding me and reading, well then they can't get irritated if they read something they don't like. Nobody is forcing them to read, after all. Having been an emotional wreck for most of this year, I feel a lot stronger now...harder, even, and less likely to put up with things or people that upset me.
I shall be glad when husband's had his eye test tomorrow and gets new glasses ordered - if indeed he needs stronger ones, which I'm fairly sure he will. I know this is partly a man thing - he can't see what's right at the end of his nose, unless I point it out to him. A perfect example - the other day in the supermarket I'd sent him off to get a box of 15 eggs. He was gone quite a time, I found him in the egg aisle, standing in front of them, seemingly clueless. 3 times I pointed to the 15 eggs boxes and said 'there they are', each time he said 'where?'. The final time I did say 'THERE!!' quite loudly and a woman pushing her trolley past at the time laughed and said 'I feel your pain!'.
He is terrible at washing up, he's got a lot worse lately, I have to re-wash more and more things he's supposedly already washed as they still have food or coffee stains on. And he never washes the outside, bottoms or backs of anything! I know some will say I should be grateful that he washes up at all, and I am - mostly. But it's not much help if I have to re-wash half of what he's done, is it? I've told him he should wear his glasses and he says he does...trouble is, it's usually his distance glasses he's wearing as he likes to gaze out of the window over the field rather than looking at what he's doing. So, as I say, I'm fairly sure he needs new glasses!
It's our lovely neighbour friend's birthday tomorrow (she's a month younger than me), I'm just about to make her a bread pudding. Not a traditional birthday cake, I know! But she really likes bread pudding, it's one of her favourites.
Good news about your mum's health.ReplyDelete
I understand about events hardening you; it's happened to me over the last couple of years. Another crap month here- my younger daughter was mugged and my mother in law died. I'll be glad to see the end of this year; I said that last year though, and this one has been even worse.
Oh Scarlet, I'm so sorry to hear that. You've had a hell of a year haven't you? I really hope next year is better for you.Delete
It seems that whether men need glasses or not, they can never find what is obvious to us and right in front of them. Yes, it's a man thing, lol. As for comments, I find that I can only reply to some, (oldish phone).ReplyDelete
Having said that, I now find that I can't comment on Land of the big sky, or Life after money anymore, since they changed the box to ADD comment, instead of POST a comment. Don't even know if you will get this.
Comment received with pleasure, Jean.Delete
I've found your blog again. I enjoy reading - whether it's whinge or not! We all have our off times be it days, weeks, months or even longer.ReplyDelete
I understand what you are saying Sue, I suppose when you read several blogs you soon spot them in the reading lists and people comment it is easy to be tracked down. My eyes are getting bad now, won't be long and I shall have to take my reading glasses to the supermarket. What a lovely gesture I am sure your friend will love the bread pudding, I know I would.ReplyDelete
Bread pudding for a birthday, sounds excellent to me. Mind you I like mine with custard. You carry on writing what you want to, them as don't like it can read something else.ReplyDelete
Very nice of you to know she really likes bread pudding and make it for her. She will be glad, I am sure.ReplyDelete
Men (throwing my hands in the air) Hee hee.
I know exactly what you mean. I can point something out to Tom and he looks just about everywhere except where I am pointing. The worst thing is the deafness, it drives me mad, I know he can't help it and sadly there is nothing they can do with his particular deafness but it drives me nuts.ReplyDelete
It's nice to know that I'm not the only one frustrated with my spouse. lol
What drives me crazy is when we're in a big store and he wants to find me. I'll be standing in plain sight but he looks everywhere except at me!!!lol I'll bet your neighbour will be really pleased that you made her such a thoughtful 'cake'.ReplyDelete
