Mum's Birthday!!

It was my Mum's Birthday yesterday. I was in work so couldn't do much with her on her day. My Mum is a fan of my blog, ( someone has to be)! I think I may have given up writing one only for her encouraging me to carry on. My Mum is one in a million, drives me nut's at times, as I do her, but I would be well and truly lost without her. Always there when I need a hand, whether it be to give me a lift, or help out with finances. I would never have got through the troubled times in my life with out her. So the object of this post is to just let her know I love her lots and to say a HUGE thank you for all you do. Just in case you were wondering Mum,I am sober!! I will just add, this surely warrants one of your famous Minced Beef Pies?

Thought Provoking Blogs!

I have just read Takey Tezey's most recent post, ( Hi Heather).
This post got me to thinking, all these new fangled phones, laptops etc seem to do nowt else but stress us out, I gave up long ago trying to figure out how my phone works,I can ring, text or email people, send picture messages, that's enough!! Trying to figure out the hundreds of other things it can do makes my hair stand on end! I don't even use my washing machine to it's full potential for goodness sake! As long as it washes my clothes I am happy, now why would I want to set the damn thing to come on the next morning, then only to get stressed out in work that day, because I forgot to set my wash to wash???? Simple life for me thank you. Mind you there is no way I would go back to hand washing and a mangle, or to go back to a brick sized mobile phone or a computer that looks like a department in PC World...... I do admire you and others who do use the latest technology to it's fullest potential,me? no thank you very much. Now does that make me, thick, lazy or what, you decide, remember though I can go off people.

Now I am off to set my bread maker to wake me up with a nice freshly baked loaf in the does that make me a hypocrite......
