Thanks, could of warned me though, as the shock has made me go all Funny-er than normal... :o)
Ah, well, we've been waiting for the girls to believe Santa doesn't exist. People think it's awful, but I never told my son there was a Santa because I remember hearing my parents discussing the cost of the toys one year when I was four years old. I was devastated, not because there was no Santa, but that they had lied to me. I didn't want my child to experience that. He missed nothing. And he didn't want to tell his girls about Santa, but of course their mother did, and even though he told them Santa was only pretend, it has been only this year they have realised he's not real. They said something to me, and I said they could still pretend if they wanted.
Actually, I must tell you this. I had to phone the fellow who checked on my birds, to ask him if he would look at them once more if I stayed longer. While I was talking to him, I said they were begging me to stay, and that I should, because once they were 13 they'd hate me like all teenagers. I didn't realise they were listening to me. Later on, one came up to me very seriously and looked up at my face and said, "Nanna, we won't hate you when we're thirteen". I laughed and tried to explain what I meant, but I felt bad, because they're so literal at their age. It was the same one that told me I wasn't to cry when I left because she gets all upset and cries, too. (She does.) So I tried to be a brave girl this time! LOL
I'm sorry you missed out on the train ride, though. I have been like that with ideas that I thought the girls would like, but they weren't interested. I wish they could stay little.
Oh, and the roo - I am so tired I am not touching the camrea yet. But I will show you if the photos turn out. You sort of have to see this abomination in its full glory to appreciate how awful it is. And it's hiding amongst gnarled trees just to add to the horror.
Bless we love um dont we, makes it all worth while , never mind Easter is just around the corner and kids love the chocolate Easter eggs, my grandson goes to Cadburys word once a year and gorges out on chocolate, if im lucky he brings some home for me too :O)
I think Cadbury's has a plant in Tasmania, but it's too far to visit. I used to live up the road from a chocolate factory in Sydney. The smell was to die for!
Yeah i live near a place called Chirk North Wales and there is a cadburys factory there which you can smell for miles :O)
Why do they torture us like that? I can only eat dark chocolate now, and it's not as nice. Aldi makes some after dinner mints that are nice, though, and they have no milk in them.
I think the Swiss and the Belgians have the best chocolate.
Yeah but did you know they all buy their coco powder from Cadburys then mix it with nectar of the gods into there own addictive recipe ?? :O)
No, I diddent know that, Mikey. I wish Cadbury's would get on the right side of the gods, then. Their chocolate is okay, but ordinary, if you ask me.
Yes a little too sweet for me I prefer Belgium chocolate and white above all other :O)
Oh, yes - real white chocolate is a whole other thing, isn't it? The milk-free version is edible, but only just!
American chocolate is full of sugar. Ever tried Whitman's? UURK! They even have an abomination made of molasses and chocolate! Maybe it's meant for cows. It certainly tastes like it is.
Ferrero Rocher chocolates are nice.
Dark Chocolate gives me migraine for some strange reason :O(
That would be because you're getting a higher dose of theobromines. Milk and the other additives water them down in milk chocolate. If I have more than about an eightth of a teaspoon of cocoa in a drink, I get the headache, too. I have to have it with carob - which is a bit disgusting.
Oh,,thats dont sound too clever too much theobromines, even as a puppy i would get a headache if i ate dark chocolate and now i know why,, your such a good friend to me Dezzie,,sometimes....
How dares you? I is allus a good friend. It's corled tuff love, Mikey, an' you needs more than most. Who else wood corl the cops on you as much as me? Hmm?
I had a pet friend once,,played with it and played with it until it went away, need a new-un now :O)
Let's face it - at our time of life we needs a new every flamin' thin'.
Aghhhhhhhhh,, Dont remind me Dezzie,, my knee,elbow,kneck....
I'll send you some spare parts. Have to get them from the butchers, but I'm sure they'll fit. Tell your doctor to give you a total refit and tune up. No, don't thank me. You're lucky to have someone who cares enough to send you off-cuts.
Bless your heart Dezzie,,,,I dont care what everyone else on here says about you,,I think your an OK gurl yes indeedy :O)
You knows how to sweet talk a lady, donchoo? Aw, shucks!
I knows how to treat a lady , Ma has teached me well over the years :o)
Izzat why orl yor girlfrends gets tied to the uther table leg?
Well they does tend to run off when they see's Ma,,Its more of a safety thing than bondage really...
So why - WHY duzzent you have a real girlfriend, Mikey? You is a carin', thortful man. Izzit corze you lives wiff yor Ma? Duz wimmin fink you is a big softie? Or izzit the constant happerances in court?
