***!!!?!!!***...

What are you views on the use of?
I do try ever so hard not to, however... WSD (wicked step daughter) says I write exactly as I speak, when she reads my emails, blog, she hears me speaking.  Is that good I wonder? I am a cliche queen, in my world exclamation marks seem the norm.
I read folks blogs who obviously have a far better grasp of English grammar than I have, I am full of respect for the ease and flow of their words.  Mine I feel do reflect my life and the odd way I look at it.  This blog after all is for me to look back on and maybe think what a lot of twaddle!?!

It is a beautiful morning here, I am sat with the door open, the sea is calm.  This early 7 ish, people are about with shopping bags going along to our lovely fish restaurant Griggs, to get the early morning’s catch.  They do wonderful breakfasts and lunches 
on the beach,  Just last Saturday
 we had a superb brunch of bacon and scallop rolls.  With the house in chaos, I love having an excuse not to cook!
Husband is out this afternoon and I was hoping my scooter would have arrived, so I could launch myself off to Sandgate without him fussing and being overprotective.
Unless it magically appears this morning, which I doubt?
The tiler has suggested that I scoot towards Folkestone using my left leg and home with my right.  Being a sensible soul, he has 
pointed out the prom is slightly angled towards the sea, so it makes sense.  Whether my legs are ‘ambidextrous’(you know what I mean?)... only time will tell!
Me getting this scooter is a cause of great mirth... can’t think why!?!

  2. What would I do without exclamation marks? I use them all the time. I also put a row of dots.......thus. I discovered a while ago that I should be using a colon or semi colon at such times but don't remember ever being taught their use!!........so I carry on with the dots !! I wish I was at the coast in this hot weather......lucky you. Too hot for scooting though !

    1. There is a cool breeze making the temperature more tolerable! What a nation we are, first... ‘Will winter never end?’ then ‘It’s too hot!’

      Too hot for scooting and not a dicky bird from the carrier, so not today I’m afraid.

    1. I do worry, if you think about it, it shows a lack of imagination if you have to rely on such things, surely the weight of your words should be enough? I am however an explanation mark sort of a woman and will continue to wang them in! Am I bothered............!?!
