..... as Eric Idle sang! And I do. Look on the bright side, that is.
The word today over on HSMS, is 'Sad'. Well, the absolute worst thing that could ever happen (every parent's nightmare), has already happened to me - so now I know that nothing that could ever happen, could possibly make me that sad again. So my philosophy now is, to smile and try to be positive about all things. It doesn't always work, but most of the time it does.
So, I had major problems finding something sad ..... and this is the best I could do. It's a bamboo plant that my YD Jodie bought for my granny's birthday three years ago, just a couple of weeks before granny died. It's been going downhill for a while now and despite watering and feeding, I think it's just come to the end of its life. I shall keep it till it's all yellow though .... just in case it should come back to life with a vengeance!
Bonfire night and the fireworks are banging and hissing away like mad ... even out here in the sticks. I refuse to have them. I think all sales of fireworks to the public should be banned and there should only be organised displays.
Am I turning into a grumpy old woman?
Don't answer that!
