I’m pulling the...

plug for a while!
Living in Limbo-land doesn’t have a lot to recommend it.
My joie de vivre has like the bubbles of old champagne gone decided flat.
Where this miserable old crone has come from I have no idea?
The big chat hasn’t happened.
That I think is the main reason for the wide open featureless space that occupies my brain.
Audrey, once again has rallied; my leg has gone out on strike in sympathy with hers.  I’ve heard of husbands getting phantom labour pains but this is frankly ridiculous! I am off to the DVT clinic tomorrow, after a mad caper  up and down the road twice, to get a doctors appointment, all this with a gammy leg!  Along the way, I lost my red beret and in case you are wondering I did have my knickers on!?!
‘Red hat, no drawers!’  I was more in the mood for ‘no’ nonsense as the half term kids screamed around the waiting room. Sadly my days of striding out knickerless are long gone...




On that happy note I will wish you
 farewell!  Well at least until my usual jolly demeanour has resurfaced.

  1. Oh no, I will miss you very much, however I understand your need to pull up the drawbridge for a while. Its very stressful moving, particularly when its been as on and off as yours has, plus the trauma of telling Audrey is gnawing away at you. I hope you won't be away for good or even for long!! Take care and stay calm. xx ps. we're booked to leave on the 1st March! x

  2. Well, we see Sappho has got your red beret. I'm sorry she has your muse too, though that was her forte. Not nicking muses, but dishing poetry. Have a rest, settle up with Audrey, get moved and dusted off and we'll see you again.

    1. Quite a girl by all accounts! I will return, maybe even knickerless, who knows?

  4. I hope you return when your "jolly demeanor has resurfaced", or even before. Looks like that pretty naked lady has found your red beret.

    1. I must confess I do love blogging. Hopefully my spirits will rise; there are I am sure many more daft things that will happen in my oft times rackety trip through life.

  5. You, my darling friend, need to let your lovely man look after you. I hope all goes well at the doc's tomorrow - and don't forget to wear your knickers...which my daughter would say is rich, coming from me, but that is another story!

    1. Aaah! Thank you for those lovely words darling girl. Off to Canterbury to get this leg checked out. I will most definitely wear my knicks, in case they venture further than my knee? There is on a hot calm day, something liberating about going knickerless, especially in a floaty dress.

    1. Even yesterday, I felt a blog coming on as the boiler engineer left. I stirred him up by asking him about this holiday, as he produced his very cracked phone to show photo’s, two minutes in, I rapidly lost interest and drifted away leaving hubs to be bored for the next 30 minutes. As he closed the front door I appeared, ‘I closed him down three times and still he came back!’ he said as he slipped down the wall with boredom oozing from every pore! I got a fit of the giggles needless to say!

  7. I've only just returned to my blog after a lengthy gap when I felt I had nothing of interest to write. In fact I felt that I myself was of no interest whatsoever. I didn't go out, no-one visited me, so I felt as miserable as sin. I have now written one post, albeit about my week away at Christmas . . . and nagged by me, my son has supplied a guest blog complete with photos - much more interesting than mine. I'm hoping my mojo will now return - and wish the same fpr you, 'cos I shall miss reading your posts. I want to hear how it goes with Audrey, how many days before you can move, photos of your lovely house, even with a lot of it in boxes. Just nosey, me!

    1. Do it for you, I say. Tell it like it is, I say. Stop if you feel the need, start again when you’re ready. That’s my advice. My other thing is I tell it like it is in my rather skewered way of seeing things. The truth, always the truth.
      Find your mojo, get it out, dust it, polish it even, that’s rich coming from me... main thing... enjoy!
