Good morning. I hope I've got it right this time, it is Thursday morning, isn't it?. Oh good :o) I am starting this post with a photo of yesterdays lunch, another smiley meal to get me in the mood for summer. Lettuce, spinach, celery, sweetcorn, tomato, two baby cucumbers out of the garden (because they aren't going to grow any bigger), two boiled eggs, and a bread roll, with dollops of garlic mayo (50p a jar from the Cash and Carry. Delicious. Stewed apples for pud, my kind neighbour has given me loads of apples.
For todays frugal summer fashions I have chosen to go a bike ride. It's dull outside, but the sun is shining on my world. I am wearing the shorts from the sleep set with pink top, which I wore the other day on the sun lounger. Mix and match that's me :o) My aquamarine top is from M & S, no don't faint, I wouldn't normally shop there, but they were closing down and it was only £1. Would you believe, it's a size 10 and it fits just right.
Yesterday I noted that some of you don't like Roller Coasters, ah c'mon what is there to be scared of, they are great fun. Anyway, when I was at Cedar Point ten years ago, although I didn't make ten rides on Raptor, I am pleased to say that I DID make ten rides on Millennium Force.
This is truly an awesome ride, the best coaster I have ever been on. When I was there it was the tallest in the world at 310 feet, and the view from the highest point at the top of the lift hill was amazing. Water is on the left, the park is on the right, then you plumet to the bottom at 93mph. You've just got to scream. Have a look at this short film, don't worry I'm not asking you to ride a coaster this time, look at it from the ground, a beautiful and graceful coaster?
Time for my third commandment, for a stress free and happy life.
Thou shalt not join in with Christmas, unless you have a religious belief, in which case you can worship without spending one penny. I have seen the light, and no longer worry about which presents to buy, how much food and drink to get in, what shall I eat on Christmas day, and the biggest headache of all, how much is it all going to cost. I simply don't do Christmas, now all the stress has gone. You will not find me traipsing round the shops in a confused state, instead I shall be skipping around the park, playing with cats and dogs, and crafting a few bits and pieces from my fabrics, wools, and collected rubbish. So tell everyone that Christmas is cancelled, and you are opting out. The only pressies you are allowed to give are those which you have made, bringing back the true meaning of kindness. It's the thought that has gone into it, not what it costs, which is important.
Here is our LARF OF THE DAY
I've been a fan of the Two Ronnies for many years, and I was going to put the classic sketch Fork Handles in here, but I think this one is just as funny. Sad that it's only one Ronnie, but Harry Enfield's facial expressions are very funny as he struggles to stop himself from laughing. Hope you like it.
