Here We Go Again......

Well hello, long time no post. No particular reason for the deafening silence from moi, I just ran out of steam, lost my writing mojo down the back of the sofa or somewhere, not really sure why the creative juices ran dry, but dry they did indeed run. If dry juices can run, obviously.

The thing is, apart from the general madness of this world we all share, nothing much happened to relight my fire and force me to tongue-lash the guilty, which is uncharacteristically benign of me as I can usually find a foul mouthful for anyone who gets up my nose. Not literally of course, but you know what I mean. I can usually launch a well aimed gobbet of vitriol upon any figure of authority that I deem to have let us down or done us wrong and my blog had become a series of rants, and when I stopped ranting I found I didn't have very much else to say.

I was very nearly tempted out of hiding by the ridiculous story of those police officers getting a serious bollocking for sliding down snowy hillsides on their police issue equipment - my working title for that little gem would have been "'Ello, 'Ello, 'Ello - What's All This Then?" or maybe "What a Riot (Shield)!", or even "All Downhill From Here!" but frankly, in the event, I just let it pass and hoped they'd get away with it.

I wanted to have another go about our greedy politicians, still squealing like stuck pigs because the lid of the expenses trough seems to have been slammed down on their thieving snouts. And then I thought, "what's the point, the rules will change, they'll get their trotters rapped and find another more devious way to rip us off", so I didn't bother, too weary to care.

So I went away to think about what I've done, and what I'll do in the future if there is one for this blog. I remembered a time when it used to be quite funny, and not just me having a poke at parts of "the establishment" that annoyed me. I looked back on my old posts and made myself laugh, (sorry if that sounds a bit arrogant, comedian laughing at his own jokes kind of stuff), and realised that I had become CRABBY, so I decided to stop until my sense of humour returned.

Funny things just seemed to stop happening to me. Quite a few miserable things did and I didn't want to do a Gordon and cry in public, I'm not out to catch votes (was that harsh?), but now I feel it's about time the miserable tide started to turn.....

So this is what I want you to do. Tell me some good heart warming stuff, silly stuff, can-you-believe-what-happened-to-me kind of stuff. Nothing nasty, heavy, sad or doomy.

Let there be light! Get Swearing Mother swearing again!

Or, better still, laughing.

Well..... there's always something that an make you laugh even out of the most serious of circumstances.
I am recovering from chemo 3..... and thought I'd do some gardening on a really good day & my wig got caught up in a branch of a tree.(Luckily there were no spectators.)
Thats an unusual but true story.........
I'm still alive...... that's heartwarming too.

Glad you are OK. I was wondering if you had had something bad happen to you.....
Glad you didn't.

Nuts in May

My sister, Lola II, is 40 at the end of this month (OK, not a funny or heart-warming fact) but the lovely thing is that at last, it looks as though she has found a suitable man. This is no mean feat, as she is a unique, endearing sort of girl (translation: mad as a box of frogs), but the wonderful thing is that he seems to be beating her at her own game! He has set up a bogus helpline in competition to mine, leaves notes for her to find round the house in interesting places, and when he came back from holiday recently he gave her four presents in alphabetical order. I haven't yet met him, but I'm hoping he's as good in reality as he sounds from the reports. The wonderful thing is that when I ask her what they've been up to, the first thing she does is laugh, and then relate some hopeless anecdote whereby 'you had to be there'. Perfect.

Well I've got nowt for you, but I want to hear about shopping trips, THAT appearance by JLS in Brum, hairdressing tidbits and the like. Pressie shopping with the hubby and how your weekend went, it being a supposedly romantic weekend this weekend so how about it? If you sit back and relax then I know you'll entertain us with those life observing anecdotes once more.
Please?

I am currently about 80 lbs overweight and got a sticking cold and feeling horrible. I was blow drying my hair yesterday and my my 3-year old boy, sat on my bed watching me said "mummy you are so pretty" and it made my year it really did. Kids are great aren't they.
Glad you are thinking of coming back.

We-e-e-ell now. Thole Man got a bit stagnant too. I ran out of ideas. But just t'other day I got the idea of reviving it but instead of the "today I did..." I would tell fairy stories and other leg-ends and p'raps put up some of my unpublished writings/ravings/ramblings. You got me going SM.
And WITN back too. P'raps its time to start it all off again.

Swearing Mother said...

Nice to read you again.
