View Profile


I have learned many things travelling life’s road, but here are the funniest in Thirteen for Thursday this week.

I have learned that the day I am ill and the bed is piled with rubbish, dishes in the sink and the rooms like a war zone, visitors queue at my door.

I have learned that when I clean the house to within an inch of its life no one visits.

I have learned that if I drop an earring it will under some heavy furniture, not just drop at my feet.

I have learned that when I throw away a spare earring, that is the day I find its mate.

I have learned that milk runs out just as the last shop closes.

I have learned if I buy a book at a garage sale I find it is missing the vital page with the ending.

I have learned the day I get a ‘good hair day’ I get caught in a rain storm.

I have learned that just as I finish washing the floor, the cat deposits a fur ball.

I have found that I get a hopeless case of hiccups at the quiet bit in the concert.

I have found when I make a super rich cheesecake with chocolate my hostess informs me she is dairy intolerant, (last week it was gluten)

I have found that the ‘quick look’ at emails has turned into an hour and I am now hopelessly late.

I have learned that the shoes that feel ‘so comfortable’ turn into vice like pincers as the day goes on.

I have learned that life wasn’t meant to be easy, and every day I am reminded of that!!

She worked at a hospital, where she took several Certificated courses, she cleaned a school, helped to run two conventions, wrote short stories, started painting, and in fact is never bored even now, "I honestly feel we are lucky to still be upright and breathing, and my motto is, Remember yesterday, dream of tomorrow, but live today. I love fun, clothes, food and friends."
