My Old Blog Posts: Relax, Read, Enjoy and Laugh

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.

1. Why Can’t I Park?

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?

2. Students in The Classroom From Hell

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.

3. The Day I Lost My Hair

 “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.

4. Those of You Born 1950 – 1979

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.

  1. I always enjoy reading your post about the Classroom from Hell!! Reminds me of all the “fun” times I had when I was a teacher! (Oh, FYI, the first group of students that I ever taught will graduate this May!! I’m super excited!!)

    I liked reading about your parking experiences! I’m actually quite proud of my parallel parking skills. I must say that I’m pretty darn good. I do it based on site rather than number of turns. I’ve actually never heard of that. When I get a good opportunity, I’m going to try it out!! My proudest parking moment happened on election day, I was in a rush to vote before going to work so I found a teeny tiny spot in front. I surprisingly was able to slowly inch my car into the space!! I think even at one point I got out to take a look at how much space was left!

    Thanks for sharing your stories, June!! I love learning a bit more about you!!

    • Congratulations on getting them through. It’s a great feeling isn’t it?

      Well, you’re one of the first woman I know (except for my niece) that’s good at parking. It’s hilarious watching some of us women trying to park. I wonder if it’s a UK thing? No matter how hard I try, I just can’t seem to master it. My daughters have had enough laughs at my parking attempts. They even suggested that I take driving lessons again to learn to park properly. :-)

      Thanks for stopping by and commenting. I appreciate it. :-)

  2. Oh!! I had to come back and say I cracked up laughing at the ponytail story!! I had a very, very similar situation. Long story short: it had to do with a wig and a snowboarding trip. I ended up tumbling down the hill, which made both my hat and my wig fly off!!

    That was the last time I’ve worn a wig because I’m always afraid of a similar situation happening!

    • Lol! Jennifer, that’s funny. Oh dear. It’s so embarrassing losing hair that doesn’t belong to you.

      I used to wear a wig sometimes when I was teaching. Some of the students I taught had emotional disabilities. They were a lovely group and very friendly. One of the girls in my class came over to me one day to stroke my hair. My heart started to beat fast. I prayed that she would leave me alone. It wasn’t because I didn’t like her. I was petrified in case she pulled my wig off. Can you imagine what would have happened in that classroom? :-)

  3. I’m not sure I’ve read these posts June so thanks for sharing the ones that stood out to you the most. I’ll do my best to get by there but I will admit I just can’t seem to find enough hours in the day as it is. Here I am on a Sunday evening trying to catch up on my blog commenting. Yep, I’m so darn behind.

    Your posts though sound fun so I’m going to keep this one bookmarked so thank you.

    You enjoy your week okay!

    • Thanks for stopping by Adrienne. I know what you mean about time. It’s gone midnight and I’m still om the computer. I wanted an early night, but yet again, I’m up late. The days seem to fly by so quickly.

      When you get time you can have a read. But I’m planning to change my theme soon so may have to remove them. Not to worry. I might put them in a PDF format for easy download. That way you can read at your leisure.

      Have a great week. :-)
