Sometimes in life you gotta put them big boots on, and get on with it........yep, that's my Philosophical approach this week. Lets face it Readers, I'm no Plato.
Parents who have an opportunity to actually GO OUT
I tried on my daughters heels
which I wore very successfully for 10 whole minutes
This outing has put us on new dizzying heights of going out in the evening twice in 6 months
Demonstrating we really don't get out much
for reference; I had a large glass of white wine and a pint of Hobgoblin, Mr F had 3 pints of Real Ale stuff.............. we are pathetic
My parents came round for their bi-annual sorting out of financial stuff
I'm in charge of it
My parents do not like telephones (unless it's family calling)
My Dad on the phone is adorable
My Mum provides a hilarious running commentary while I'm on the phone
this is how it rolls, in this instance Home insurance quote;
Operator-'Have your parents had any criminal convictions?'
Me - 'What!, no, they haven't, and they are not criminals'
My Mum, who is on the couch listening then shrieks 'what are they talking about, Criminals? *reaches a piercing level which sets all the dogs off in the neighbour-hood*
and yes, that's my phone cover
'cos you all know I'm crap at taking them
We had about 25 minutes of snow
MIL has asked us to look after a very special grave from now on,
it took 2 days to find it,
instructions - when you get there, it's on the left, the picture below is the 'left'
(The grave contains Mr F's brother who died just before his first birthday from complications from Measles and encephalitis, it is unbearably sad. He is buried with his Grandparents.)
I appreciate and understand the relevance and importance of being asked.
MIL is taking care of business.
I took quite a few pics for reference
I then looked through them,
Then I see Orbs and completely freaked myself out
Mr F reckons it is rain, they are not on any other pics
I believe in ghosts
I've seen a couple
The beading on the left cardigan is exquisite, the buttons need some attention, but 2 beautiful pieces of knitwear for under 8 quid! Viva la Chazza's!
£12 worth of fines
because I am an idiot
The cemetery where Mr F's brother is also contains my maternal Grandfathers family
I have been once and remember a rather grand Memorial
I couldn't find it
I'm researching possibilities
It's a long story about my Grandad,
not mine to tell though
It was ruddy freezing
armlets and a cape?
bits of bare flesh
Irony of ending a post called 'The Searching' is my internet connection is currently searching for Internet Access............
