Episode 271: Easter Wishes.

I just wanted to wish everyone a Happy Easter. I hope that you have fun whatever you decide to do today. We are going over to my sister’s for a lovely roast, and will probably play a few games. We always have a good time over there.

It is great that none of us are working over Easter for a change, and are able to spend some time together. My mum (who is 82), will also be coming over. and she surprised us all in the summer by being a bit of a mean table tennis player! Despite her arthritis and reduced mobility, she can certainly have us all running about trying to return her killer serves!

Miss Hap has already had a couple of eggs and some new pyjamas (I don’t know why but I always buy her pyjamas at Easter)! The dog has had some doggy chocolate droops as well, so she is happy.

Mr Grump bought me some beautiful flowers instead of chocolate. Unfortunately, I have also had to have some paracetamol! I am full of cold, and ache like hell, but I have been looking forward to spending the day with family, so have dosed myself up in preparation.

Although I am not particularly religious, I do believe in love, friendship, family, honesty, trust and respect, which is the mainstay of most religions anyway.

I hope that however you choose to spend your day, it is filled with joy and happiness.

Happy Easter!

Breathing Life

A diary of the second half of life. A life that includes parenting, depression, love, humour, faith, and grace. Not necessarily in that order. This lovely lady is also very creative, crafty, intelligent and wise. 

Wendy of the Rock…’Coz No woman’s an Island

This blog is very funny,and honest, and one that I enjoy immensly

Going From Here To There

This lady has a very similar sense of humour to me, and I love the way she can laugh at herself!

Fill Your Own Glass

A realistic approach to an optimistic life. This was one of the first blogs that I followed. I love the way she writes, and her clever use of language. She is a lovely person, whose posts are always a pleasure to read.


Moco-Choco is a blog about pretty, rare and unusual things! This blog has loads of beautiful and interesting things to look at, which brings a smile to your face.

Leila’s Mixtape

I like this blog because it very often incorporates a song that reinforces a message. It can make you laugh and cry, but it is always heartfelt and honest.

Storytime with John

pull up and listen…I’ve got a funny one for ya…I have to include this blog even though it is already very popular. It is so funny, original and downright silly!
