Have you read any of my old blog posts? If not, I’ve got a treat for you.
I told you in my latest post that Miraculous Ladies will be changing direction soon. I will be updating my theme with a new yummy look. I’m also working on an awesome FREE product to give your for standing by me.
I haven’t done much to show my appreciation. You deserve a big Thank You and more!
Oh yea, before I forget to tell you. Miraculous Ladies will be offline for a few days. It could be this week or next. It depends when I get the time to update the theme. Please be patient with me while I work behind the scenes to give you a gorgeous looking new blog.
Lastly, I’ve put together five of my favourite humorous, ‘blast from the past’ blog posts for you.
Curl up on the sofa with a cup of tea or coffee. Relax, read and have a laugh.
Without further ado, here is my treat for the week for you.

Is it just me, or are there other women who can’t park?
I passed my driving test eleven years ago and the first car I bought was a Nissan Micra. I suppose you could call me a ‘safe’ person when it comes to driving. I had lessons in a Micra and I didn’t feel adventurous enough to drive anything else. The thought of driving a bigger car scared me.
Anyway, small cars are a breeze to park.
Or are they?
As a newly qualified teacher, I was bursting with enthusiasm, and keen to share my newly acquired skills in the classroom.
Interesting start to my day
I woke up to a cold, grey Monday morning. I didn’t get much sleep during the night. I was excited and couldn’t wait for the day to start. I was keen to meet my new students. I got dressed, grabbed a quick cup of coffee and walked to the train station. I decided to leave my car at home. I needed some fresh air to clear my head.
“Your hair looks nice mum. It suits you.” My daughter leisurely ran her fingers through my gorgeous, new curly ponytail. “It makes you look younger.” She said smiling.
“Are you sure it looks OK?” I asked puckering my brows.
I glimpsed in the mirror again, just to make sure. “Hmm… I suppose its OK. Come on. Let’s go!” I muttered.
We drove to my other daughter’s flat to meet her. “I like your hair mum. It looks lovely.” Her comments made me feel more confident about my new locks. If my hair didn’t look good, she’d be the first one to tell me.
We spent the afternoon in the swimming pool at our local leisure centre. After they finished swimming, (I can’t swim so I splashed around in the water) we decided to get some food.
TO ALL THE KIDS WHO SURVIVED THE 1950′S, 60′S AND 70′S!!
- First, we survived being born to mothers who smoked and/or drank while they were pregnant. They took aspirin, ate blue cheese dressing, tuna from a can and didn’t get tested for diabetes. Then after that trauma, we were put to sleep on our tummies in baby cribs covered with bright coloured lead-base paints.
- We had no childproof lids on medicine bottles, locks on doors or cabinets and when we rode our bikes, we had baseball caps not helmets on our heads.
5. All’s Well
Just a line to say I’m living,
That I’m not among the dead.
Though I’m getting more forgetful,
And mixed up in my head.
I’ve got arthritis,
To my dentures I’ve resigned.
I can cope with bifocals,
But ye Gods I miss my mind.
