I’m not going….

Decision time.

I am not going to the Blog Awards Ireland 2012.

My ankle is being stubborn and very uncomfortable at times. Getting about the house is one thing, but driving to Dublin or standing around or even walking in areas that I am unfamiliar with is a horse of a different colour.

I need to be sensible. No point spoiling the child for a ha’porth of milk. The foot comes first. I have given it time, but it still needs some more, if I want to remain independent and able to continue living on my own.

There will be other years to attend Blog Awards and social events. I admit I am disappointed, but I’ll follow the goings on on Twitter. I have emailed Amanda to say I will not be there.

To those of you going, have a wonderful evening and think of me as you sip on your wine.

Thursday Special ~ The Three Little Pigs

A teacher was reading the story of the Three Little Pigs to her class of 6 year-olds. She came to the part of the story where first pig was trying to gather the building Materials for his home.

She read. ‘and so the pig went up to the man with the Wheelbarrow full of straw and said: ‘Pardon me sir, but may I have some of that Straw to build my house?’

The teacher paused then asked the class: ‘And what do you think the man said?’

One little boy raised his hand and said very matter-of-factly …’I think the Man would have said –

‘Well, I’ll be damned!!  A talking pig!’

The teacher had to leave the room.




Thank you David for this little beauty.
