I'm baaaack

Well here I am, feeling a great deal better than this time last week; its been a week of sorting out lots of things.

The main one being that last Wednesday we managed to find a permanent place for my aunt in a very nice nursing home not far from where I live. Only a 5km/3 mile drive - no time at all 'cept its on a main highway so it depends on the time of the day and the traffic lights lol

Still in a bit of pain she was very weary after her time in hospital and spent a few days resting in bed or a chair but now is taken down to the day room and dining room to socialise and take part in activities. She has had a visit from the hairdresser so looks nore like her old self and this mornings activity was the visiting manicurist who provides all the residents with hand massages and manicures - which she will love as all her life till recently she had beautiful long 'painted fingernails'

Thank you for all your lovely comments and best wishes in the last post :) (smiling)

Friends knew all was not well when I didn't turn up for a coffee morning and didn't answer the phone but used the machine instead, 'cose theres one thing they do know about me and that is I like talk and will only put the machine on if I'm going out lol

I have stayed off the the computer, in fact closed the blog for a few days, have slept well even with the worry of fires and the effect it has been having on the local population and have begun to take an interest in my craft UFOs.

What can I say 'cept I am feeling so much better than this time last week, it feels like a big weight had gone from my shoulders.

So heres a joke someone sent me - I roared when I read it as I can just imagine it happening lol


It was entertainment night at the Senior Centre.

Claude the hypnotist exclaimed: 'I'm here to put you into a trance; I intend to hypnotize each and every member of the audience.'

The excitement was almost electric as Claude withdrew a beautiful antique pocket watch from his coat

'I want you each to keep your eye on this antique watch. It's a very special watch. It's been in my family for six generations'

He began to swing the watch gently back and forth while quietly chanting, 'Watch the watch, watch the watch, and watch the watch...

The crowd became mesmerized as the watch swayed back and forth, light gleaming off its polished surface.

Hundreds of pairs of eyes followed the swaying watch, until, suddenly, it slipped from the hypnotist's fingers and fell to the floor, shattering into a hundred pieces.

'SH*T' said the Hypnotist............ ...............

It took three days to clean up the Senior Centre!!!!


  1. So good to have you back! I am glad you got Auntie settled close by. That will make a difference. We are dealing with Mother-in-law stubborn and still functioning (barely) but 3 hours away. Agh. I know what you're early days with her must have been like.
    Stay cool.

  2. Welcome back Cathy, happy to see you here and I am glad things are now on a more even keel. Must be a big relief to see your Aunty taken care of.

  3. Hi Cathy, I'm glad you are back and feeling better. I'm glad your A Pam is settling in hope she continues to be happy there. I loved the joke...brought a big smile to my face!

  4. Nice to have you back and feeling better. The joke---very funny!
