Let's have a chat about stuff


Good afternoon all it is nice and wet here this afternoon but thankfully I managed to get all the laundry done and dried before I had to leave to go and get Leo from school. Thankfully it didn't cost as much to get the car fixed, although this morning it stored on me taking Leo to school but I had no problem with it this afternoon.

While I was watching the telly something was said that I thought I would use a the topic for this post then my daughter rang and now I have forgotten what it was and it is on free to air TV so I can't rewind and see what it was.

Yesterday Kelli mentioned that she was sick and that she didn't feel like going anywhere she just wanted to stay home, and this is now home to her, this made me feel good. After having her here for so long I have gotten use to her being here and I will miss her when they leave, but I do not think that will be any time soon as it is just so hard for her to find a place and I can imagine how dishearten she gets, how often can a person be knocked back without it affecting them.

Oh yeah when I was at the diabetic class yesterday one of the other women came up and asked if I was Jo-Anne Jenkins, I said I use to be, turns out she lived across the road from us when we lived in Flame street, her daughter and my sister Jeannie where best friends. She asked me how my parents are and how many grandchildren they have, I let her know that they have 17 grandchildren and 8 great grandchildren and that we get together every week. She thought it was great that we are all still so close.

I just gave Daemon his first taste of Scotch he screwed his face up, I only dipped my finger in and let him smell it and he tasted it, at first he wasn't sure what to make of it...........so no one have a go at me it isn't like I poured him a drink of scotch.

  3. Dear Jo-Anne, I apologize for not reading your blog for so long. I had the URL for a specific posting of yours, not the blog and so I kept coming back to an October posting and I thought you were taking time off. I hope all is well. Peace.

  5. I was given tastes of alcohol when I was growing up. I don't think it hurt me any, and I don't drink much. It's so nice that you could say you all get together every week.

    Love,
    Janie

    1. Sometimes a child needs a taste to know they don't like it, yes I got the impression that she didn't get together with her family very often

  6. The first time I ever drank scotch was at a Robert Burns celebration when I was stationed with the Navy in Iceland. A visiting Scottish squadron brought the haggis and, of course, the scotch. I absolutely abhorred the stuff my first drink. Then, I had another. Then another.
    I love me some wee scotch now, laddy.

    1. I drink it pretty weak but the more I drink the strong the drink gets, I like my scotch and my southern comfort

  7. When I was a baby, my folks, on occasion put beer in bottle and give it to me at night. This was recommended by some German doctor. When I was a little girl, when my dad would open a can of beer, I'd be there! I still love beer.
