My good friend Janice comes over every week to see me. She broke her leg in January and is still in a bit of pain from it.
“I must nip to the loo”, she said.
As she was climbing the stairs I shouted up to her, “if you can’t manage, I’ll send Gordon up to you…”.
“Marie !!!!!!”, she shouted, “just wait until I tell my husband what you said”.What I should have said was “if you need any help getting up or down the stairs, I’ll send the stairlift up to you”.
Good bye motherisms, hello marieisms….
