This months photo blogging challenge is – New
I dislike a lot of modern day comedy, for two main reasons. I don’t find humour that relies on smutty talk, funny or clever. It’s looking for easy laughs and shock from the audience. I also don’t like a lot of swearing, which they seem to do. Add to that, the fact that I have never found slapstick funny. Not since I was a child, in the days of Norman Wisdom, so I can’t, for the life of me, understand why I find Mrs Brown’s Boys so hilarious.
Mo and I love it and we’re not alone. His live shows are fully booked out, the moment tickets go on sale. The show encompasses all three of my dislikes in comedy, but he carries it all off so well, that we can’t stop laughing. He writes and directs it all himself and the cast are all his family members. My first photo is a new mug I bought for Mo, with his ‘made famous’ words on it. She loves it and uses it constantly.
This next photo was a complete surprise to me. I was waiting for Mo to bring the car up and I noticed these new shoots popping up through the shingle. This is a very strange sight in January.
A few days later I saw this. A rose bud. Unfortunately, it was windy and I couldn’t get the silly thing to stay still long enough for a clear shot. I can’t believe that we are getting flowers popping up in January.
I feel the cold – I feel the cold a lot! Mo, on the other hand, will have a cool air fan on all year round. I sit shivering, while Mo sits sweating. I suddenly found the answer to all of our misery. I bought myself a onesie and it works a treat. I no longer pester Mo to have the heating on. It keeps me just warm enough. Of course, being so short meant that I couldn’t get just any onesie. I found the site that makes them to measurements you give them. I was so pleased with it that I decided to get a second one, so I could have a change and it arrived last week. This is my new onesie.
Why do I have to be so small? I have to have a made to measure onesie and I have had problems buying shoes, for years now. I am only a size 4 (UK) and shoe makers assume that a size 4 means you have little children’s feet. I don’t have. In fact they are broader than most. I can’t buy shoes from a shoe shop. They won’t fit my feet and getting fed up with wearing the same old sloppy shoes for years, I searched online and found a site that specialise in broader fit shoes. In fact they start at size 3 (UK). Of course, you have to pay for that and my shoes are usually about £80. I can’t afford to buy shoes, just because I want to any more, but was getting really bored wearing the same shoes all the time. Even though they look as good as new. I know I have had them for years.
My birthday meant I had some cash to spend and would you believe they had a huge sale on. I got a pair of £82 shoes for £50. They arrived today and I am well pleased. I’m afraid the kitten had to get her nose in the photo.
That’s my five for this month.
