Beauty in the Ordinary

This is not about being brilliant, or extraordinary, it's not about wanting to be famous, or making headlines, or trying to impress...this about sharing a 'gift' each day with the world...to lift the spirit of people when they read this blog, to show them the beauty in the ordinary.
"And above all, watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places. Those who don't believe in magic will never find it." Raold Dahl

Sorry...but Men are Stupid



All I wanted was a simple goal.
Said to hubby "post surgery, five days on, we can go to our little, local pub and have a guinness on St. Patrick's day."

What a nightmare!
He HAD to invite family.
We HAD to stay way too long.

He couldn't wait to get home, in the door, take his pain meds
and climb into bed.

I am sure he was feeling awful.

And why?  just to prove you can...what?  why? and to whom?

Men are stupid!

I'm worried that all the progress we have made over the past few days is now lost.
If it is, I will be spitting mad.

    1. What I should have known better John, is to think that I could have been in charge of anything!

  3. Men can be less than brilliant. Bears are very smart. Women are, well, . . . women. Enigmatic as ever.

  4. Women are so much more sensible about health matters, I once had to be dragged to the dentist by an 8 year old girl (not my daughter); I went simply because I didn't want to look cowardly.

    1. I'm happy to report Jeanne, that we (both) did manage to get some sleep last night. Sunday will be coffee, newspapers and perhaps a short walk around the block. Very quiet...

  6. I really shouldn't post when I'm cross! But all this macho-silliness is annoying.

  9. Oh J I do hope he hasn't undone all your good work. And by now you've said your bit, you've got your Florence Nightingale hat on and he's having lots more TLC. (Been there done that)

  10. Miraculously Molly, today was okay. No harm done, just a little anxious and exasperated yesterday. All good.

  11. Dear Jacqueline, all I can say is BEEN THERE!! Men have an uncanny knack of making fools of themselves more often than not to prove their bravado. Some things never change.....glad all is well ! N.xo. P.S. Love the Angel Inn! N.xo
