Granny goes Ho,Ho,Ho.

Hello All.

It is official.
I am not being paranoid.
My staff are out to get me.
It is the 12/10/2011
They are playing Christmas Carols.
My brain is going to be mush by December.
Bah Humbug.

I didn’t post yesterday.
I didn’t walk yesterday.
Because I was very busy.
Because I wasn’t feeling too grand.

I think it is these health pills I am taking.
They are making me feel very unhealthy.
Apparently, it is all the toxins leaving my body.
I don’t know why I am bothering.
The toxins and I have been getting along fine.
I think friendship has it’s limits.
I started taking them to keep Wendy company.
She feels fine.

Talking about Wendy.
She and her partner arrive on Sunday.
She has an appointment with the specialist on Monday.
Keep the positive vibes coming.

I am off to buy new pillows and bath towels at lunchtime.
I have been looking for an excuse to buy the pillows.
Mex and I have towels that are not too bad.
The ones in the cupboard have had their day.
Fine for grandkids….they avoid bathing anyway.
A different story for visitors.
Even if they are friends.

Tonight is going to be a rush.
I will have to race home and take Jasmine for a walk.
Then jump in the shower and wash my hair.
I have to be at the school at 6:30pm.
17 year old granddaughter is getting two sports awards.
I am SO proud of her.
One is for badminton…which she only started this year.
The other is for athletics.
She doesn’t take after me.

Now…back to work.



  1. Kudos to you for supporting your friend. I tried those “detox” foot patches last year and started breaking out in a rash and having shooting pains in my legs. I took it as a sign that my toxins did not want to break up with me yet.

    • You could be right Morgue…my toxins obviously love me!!!

  2. Great post Granny even if you are not feeling well. Stop taking the health pills if they are not doing you any good.

    Good to know that Wendy is able to travel I really do wish her well.

    Congratulations to your lovely clever Granddaughter !

    • Patrecia!!!!!!
      I PAID for them!

  3. Prayers for Wendy are coming your way.

    • You are a darling Maire…thank you!

  4. Sorry you couldn’t see the video. Just google “Super Brain Yoga” and stuff should pop up for you. πŸ˜€

    Once your brain is operating at maximum velocity . . . you’ll be able to tune out those Christmas Carols until it’s time for the holidays to be welcomed. πŸ˜€

    • Hi NR…will see if I have the energy to try tonight!!!

  5. What wonderful achievement! Congratulations to the grandchildren! I like new goodies every now and again – enjoy the shopping, and enjoy the visit! As hard as this time is, as much is a memorable time of being together. Laugh as much you can.

    • Always Yada…always!

  6. I need to start walking again, your motivation makes me feel guilty πŸ™‚ did you get the subscription thingy figured out yet?

    • Hi Princess…I haven’t had a chance but will try this weekend…mental note…send your e-mail to my home PC.

  7. I love to play badmiton but I never do. No one to play with and I sure don’t recall playing it school. I might have done better in P.E. No actually I would have probably wacked someone in the head or gotten wacked in the head myself.

    Have a nice visit with Wendy and tell you we are wishing her the best. Tell her to get some Matcha green tea. I read an article once by a breast cancer doctor that said she recommends it for all of her patients. That and blueberries. There was a third thing but I can’t remember it. All antioxidants.

    • Thanks Linda….I bought her Patrick Holford’s bible of nutrition today…guess what I shall be reading tonight.

  8. Christmas carols? You’re joking…? I hope

    • Wish I was joking Pseu.
      That is not all….went to the supermarket at lunchtime…there are selling Xmas crackers.
      I kid you not!

  9. Christmas carols in October? There should be a law against it!

    • Hi Elaine,,,,,hmmmm….I shall get hold of our local member of parliament!

  10. Congratulations to your Granddaughter! That’s so wonderful! πŸ™‚
    Christmas in October… yep I agree that may very well turn your brain to mush by December. I reckon you could get an ipod with head phones and listen to your own music to drown it out. πŸ˜‰

    • That wouldn’t work EC…how would I eavesdrop?

  11. Don’t take the pills, Gran. Listen to your body! 😦
    Congrats to granddaughter – very well done! πŸ˜€

    • Hi Adee….really don’t think it IS the pills…am sure it is the damn pollen.

  12. So, tell me … is scotch whiskey a toxin? I sure hope not. Congrats to your grand daughter.

    • Surely not Bud.
      Wine comes from grapes…how can that be toxic. πŸ™‚

  13. Great news re your Granddaughter. Terrific tonic for her self-esteem – something teens can take any day! πŸ˜€

    Thoughts and much more to Wendy and all involved. Dr, too!

    • Thanks Souldipper…she is down today but will try to boost her when she gets here on Sunday.
