Family weirdness

I had an idea for a lighter post today, it began like this:

Granny had a coal hole – that wasn’t.

Nana had folding doors that didn’t

I had an under-the-stairs… in a house with no stairs.

I hope this gene skipped my Elly!


Over the next few days, I hope to tell you more about them…

Then it will be your turn.

      Hopefully I’ll get round to the first instalment later today. Now time to ready myself for a morning of knitting and nattering… for me it will be crocheting and laughing! It does my heart good.


    Is a coal hole not a coal hole if it is whole coal?
    You have to adore doors that don’t fold.
    Is an understairs in a house with no stairs like a mudroom in a house with no mud?
    Looking forward to seeing more.

      I will have to think about my answers to your questions,Lyn… I do know that a door is not a door when it is ajar ( A JAR). Boom Boom!

    I’ll be laughing all morning over the door ajar, GM. Think I’ll take a jar and put it on the kitchen counter … keep the giggle going.

    I specialized in cryptography when I was in the Navy, but could not break this code…..£$€£$€£$€. I’m sending it on to Bletchly Park.


A penny for your thoughts...
