Good evening Bloggets. My Son was due home at quarter to nine tonight but it’s now after eleven and he’s still not home.
All I can say is thank goodness for mobile phones. He’s out with a couple of colleagues. Interesting ones too. One of them I could write a book on. He’s English, as English as I am. Honest just ask Siri… Or, perhaps not as Siri really struggles with my Geordie accent.
I, don’t know why?
Shamrock must be out tonight with her friend or possibly her family otherwise no way Boy Wonder would be with his pals. The other friend he is with used to work with BW but left. The really bad thing is, yesterday he went to see BW at work and went in the office made himself a coffee and sat putting his feet up. When the big bad boss entered, he wasn’t impressed. I kind of don’t blame him, it was a bit forward. This is the pal who always has a business venture for him and BW. So, goodness knows what will come home tonight.
Sitting on this sofa it’s so uncomfortable it wasn’t expensive when we got it and it has lasted five years. But we really are in need for another one. Getting to the shop to buy one is more of a challenge. But hey, if my Husband and I can take our guide dogs and design and choose a full kitchen and all the electrical goods we can pick a sofa. It’s just finding the shop among the mass of industrial estates. I hate those places and even for those who are sighted, half of my friends with vision don’t even have a clue what is among those bricks and glass buildings. I have told some friends of businesses that are there to which they didn’t have a clue of their existence. How did I learn of what was there? Haha, basically finding a door walking in and asking whilst I tried to find a paint shop!!! Did I find the paint shop in the end? Yes, but did I get assistance in choosing the colours? Nope, they said they weren’t allowed to help in case I took them to court over a colour I didn’t agree with or like, well, let me tell you, I was there a while and I don’t think they will forget me in a hurry. The thought of decorating now days adds stress to my life, and my Husbands. I, mean, to pick a colour when we both are totally blind is bad enough, but when we come across people who are like uncaring robots, it’s not helpful. I, wonder if one day they may need such help, let’s hope they don’t meet with people like themselves!
On Facebook this week I have excepted some really positive friends one of them is the author who rightly corrected a word I wrote wrongly the other day, I put wrested with a W, rather than rested with an R. I tried to befriend him but found his page and couldn’t find where to send for a friend request and today, there he was a request from him. I’m very excited about that.
I have so many authors on my friends list on Facebook one is a dear friend Nancy. She brings tears to my eyes, not sad ones but tears of joy.
Facebook is getting better for those of us who use screen readers or software like Jaws. It’s nice they are considering us when they plan. I, know they have had bad press of late, but in all honesty, we now live in a big brother world and my travels to the former USSR have nothing on what goes on in the West now days.
I have a huge passion to write books I know I can write children’s stories as well as many other subjects from romance to mystery and my autobiography will be the cherry on the top of the cake as that will be unique for sure. I just need some encouragement as I have no push. I admire those who have get up and go. I smile when I read of people who write 500 words per day, gosh, I can do that in five minutes, in this silly little blog, there are over a thousand words. This is my second blog today and I have written three poems for people, and when I put my writing head on, not my chit chat head like what is on now, I go into another world and I can be someone else and that person is so far from myself it’s unbelievable. Lately I have read about a university course I would love to do but then I think of the job that will follow and I have my negative hat on and realise that there is no chance I would get a job and this makes me so sad. I really wish when I was young I had that push I really do.
“It’s been my life’s long ambition to become an optometrist, but I just couldn’t see a way to make it happen. Haha.””
Seriously, that would not be my choice of work.
The birds in my garden are telling me it’s spring, but the weather is telling me different. Did you hear of two lambs who were in a meadow? Which one frequented a Casino?
The one who’s gambolling….
OK, that was bad I know, well I, did say this is a chit chat blog….
Are we ready for a really deep blog? It’s been a while since I got controversial. Possibly there will be one coming up this weekend. Remember if you have any suggestions for a blog and you are on my following list on my blog page, please let me know or through Google Plus or, you can send me an email.
Just before I close the house for the navy night to go to sleep, I will leave you with these thoughts.
The two most important days in your life are the day you were born and the day you learned why you were born… I’ve personally yet to learn about my second day…
Don’t waist your energy on your past, concentrate on your future.
I, hope I’m in your future.
Nighty night. Sleep tight.
