A chip off the old block

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….


PS more entries from the Joint Journal will be up soon. Watch this space for more details.

The end of an era

I’m afraid I won’t be publishing anymore of my mam’s motherisms on the blog from now on.

She has become a silver surfer and is now reading the blog….

At first she was a bit hesitant about using the internet, but using our spare dongle for a few months, she became so hooked on it, that she decided to get broadband installed.

The annoying thing is she’s got fast broadband speed than us !!!!!
