......that's what I am.

By your comments, I mean.

I didn't realise you had been worried about me.

Did you think the Father of This Lot had 'done me in'?

Were your minds racing along the lines of...............

or worse..........


You know me better than that.

Wouldn't this have been nearer the mark.....................?

Actually, this is a very inaccurate picture.

For a start, that punch is way too girly and playful for my liking, and I think that rig-out gives the Father of This Lot a bit of a look of Jason King.

If you are old enough to remember Jason King you are most welcome to this blog.

If not, please leave now as you are depressing me.

Anyway, I'm back.

Without explanation or excuse, I might add.

Real life got in the way.

You know how it is.

And I shall be easing myself back into this blogging lark with very short posts.

I thought this best since it took me three hours lastnight to remember how to get on to the thing in the first place.

However, I shall leave you with this little text gem from the Football Fanatic on Saturday night:

FF: Have you ever met anyone from Sicily?
Me: No. Why, have you?
FF: Yeah. Two lads buying us drinks.
Me: Are they good looking snappy dressers who keep going on about how much they love their mother?
FF: God, Mum, how did you know that?

Me: Dunno, kiddo. Lucky guess?

I thought it prudent at this point to step up my prayers a notch until she arrived home.

Which she did.

Yes!!!! At last!!!
Where have you been?!??

About time too and all that sort of stuff.
Great to see you back. Short posts better than no posts.
These lads she met - don't have a name sounding like Coleone do they?
Hmmm. Only FF.

Good to know you're still alive under that lost somewhere. :0)

Well, I was worried...more about some type of trouble than anything...and as you know I am a praying girl, I was concerned that you didn't ask me to pray.


glad your back my friend.

Saw your name in my commentor and thought "Yay! She's back!" Have been popping into your blog to see if I'd missed a post, but no sign - must admit, I just thought it was life getting in the way, well with five girls and husband to keep you busy .......

I didn't know you were away because I have just discovered you. But, You know what? I'M GLAD YOU'RE BACK, TOO! I enjoyed your post very much and I hope you won't go away again. I will definitely be keeping an eye on you and your blog. God bless you.

There's a clock on your blog telling me the Moon is waning gibbous. Is that like saying that roady bacon is reight gradely?

Do you think your American readers understand Manc?

Do your daughter's Italian friends understand Manc, especially in its female form?

Jason King was dishy in his era wasn't he. MWM had a Jason King moustache - it looked good honest!

What a relief to have you and my favorite blog back.

Yeah I missed you and hated the idea of visiting you in Westminster Abbey somewhere between Oscar Wilde and Issac Newton.

Those boys brom Sicily, better hire a Godfather for FF

Amrita said...

I don 't know this Jason guy, but that will not discourage me from visiting you.Please don 't be depressed

katney said...

I don't know the Jason guy either, but I doubt it is because I am too young--more like my grandchildren are too young.

And I've know someone from Sicily. and keep praying.
