Hell's teeth...first time out grocery shopping for two weeks and it has me wrecked altogether so it has...
It isn't exactly rocket science and not physically tasking providing I lean on the trolley, but half way round, by the breakfast cereals actually...I had to have a stop and a bit of a rest. So I read the ingredients in a packet of Oaty Chocolate Crunchies while I caught my breath...you wouldn't want to be eating those...unless you were five years old, then I daresay you'd like them.
'Cos it was the afternoon and all the odd people emerge first thing in the morning, I was spared having to dodge behind the tinned soups to avoid those I'd prefer not to meet up with...the only folk about were shelf fillers and they seem fairly harmless on the whole.
Now, we're having a bit of a problem with 'Bored' again...or rather 'Board' my actual grandchildren can't spell or won't spell...not sure which. As you know we both have accounts on the Facebook thing to keep abreast of what various members of our horrible family are up to...and most appear to be 'Board'...
Sarcasm is totally wasted on them...I've tried leaving comments along the lines of 'only boring people are bored' or go and dig the garden then...or bake a feckin' cake...but that all falls on deaf ears. Then the next posting from one of them...and there are an awful lot...will be that 'they are sat watching videos'...I'd love a device to mark through 'sat' with a red pen and substitute 'sitting' but then I suppose I really would be a nasty old Granny.
Poorly written and spoken English is just plain sloppy and careless and it drives me crackers...regional accents are grand...but you can still speak and write properly.
But how can they be bored? They all have small children and surely to goodness you can find something to do with a little child.
One of Himselfs granddaughters is planning to visit us later in the year with her relatively new partner...hope she doesn't announce she's bored while she's here 'cos I might not be able to keep quiet. And apparently he's addicted to his x-box...or some gadget of that kind. And they live in a town.
If they actually come, it'll be such fun won't it?...it's alright...that's a rhetorical question...don't feel obliged to answer...
