Granny has a blog blackout

Hello All.

I have come to the conclusion my blogging is directly linked to my camera.
No photos no blog.
On Monday I think I must take my camera to work.
See if I can find something interesting to talk about.

I logged on today and found there were 35 comments in my spam box.
Not even very interesting ones.
The top searches are a little bit better.
Though I am sort of fascinated.
What have I ever blogged about that would make my post pop up if one searched for Granny and hot sex on the beach?
Am I losing the plot?
Did I forget a couple of posts?
Sex on the beach?
All that sand.
In places that one should NEVER get sand.
It is bad enough when one lies on a crumb.



I was hoping to explore for a new beach today.
There is a nasty cold wind blowing.
I don’t feel THAT enthusiastic.

I think I am a bit emotionally drained.
I am finding it hard to cope with the folk in the main house.
It is just like having three kids again.
No it is worse.
I can’t even smack them.
Two are too old and the third one is bigger than me.

On Friday I go up to spend the weekend with Wendy.
I can’t wait to see her again.
She had mixed results with her last tests.
Two of her brain tumours have gone.
The doctors now think the thing on her liver wasn’t cancer.
Her primary lung cancer has not changed.
She has a new tumour on the ribs.
I am a bit slow.
I think I now know why I haven’t felt like blogging.

Big breath.
Get out the camera.
Get the car out.
Go somewhere.
Clear the head.
Buy a nice treat to eat.

Talk to you later.



  1. Some times I suffer similar blog black outs! Go find that beach.

    • I found it Newsey…will post pics just now.

  2. Is this a photo of your new garden? It’s nice not to be overlooked. I hope things go well for Wendy and that her new tumour can be treated.

    • Thanks Elaine…that is the view from the other side of the house…we don’t have a view from our little place.

  3. granny you have gone through so much in such a short time and your emotions are all over the place, more so now in your support of a wonderful friend. It’s little wonder, girl. Take it easy and be kind to yourself. Love you very much. Am continuously praying for Wendy xx

    • Thanks so much Colleen….makes one feel so helpless. Love you too.

  4. There’s a nasty cold wind blowing here, too.
    I’m staying indoors today.
    Cancer is a b*tch.

    • I saw the beach but too darn unpleasant to get out of the car.

  5. Treats make everything better. I’m sorry to hear about Wendy’s mixed results. She is still in my prayers. Please pray for my son-in-law’s mother who has numerous cancerous tumors and is undergoing chemo now. She is a dear, sweet woman (unlike her son) and I feel just terrible for her. Why do these things happen to such good people?

    • Thanks Maire…will certainly pray for her!

  6. Beautiful photo. Lovely spot to sit for tea. You and Wendy have a lot on your plate. Treat yourself often. Hugs from here.

    • Thanks Linda…nothing we can’t overcome.

  7. Or you could try sex on the beach!

    • Hehehe Piglet…not in this weather my friend…things shrink in the cold!

  8. I do hope that your friend Wendy finds the strength to continue to fight that foul disease. You have to remember that they managed before you arrived, I think you have ‘sucker’ stamped on your forehead right now! You definitely need to have time for yourselves.

    • Thanks Sue…me too…re Wendy.
      I know they managed on takeaways before I got here.
      Right now I think they are waiting for me to come in and warm up the leftovers for their supper.

  9. Hope you found your new beach Granny, you need a space to escape to when it all gets too much. As for me I will be glued to Sky TV tomorrow to watch the Queen’s Jubilee Celebrations and heaven help anyone who interrups me.;)

    • So Optie…you aren’t going to watch the Comrades then??????

  10. Piglet! this is Granny we are talking about..a bit of decorum please..remember her age!
    It will take a while to settle in and get used to having the old folks around and the change in lifestyle…but however you feel, happy, sad or anger…just write it on here …we are here to listen, to hug and to love

    • What a lovely thing to say Patrecia…I must say it has made it more bearable having all my friends come with me. 🙂

    • p.s. P……your link is not working…I get your gravatar.

  11. Oh my goodness, so very sorry to hear about your friend. I will say some prayers for her.

    I don’t know what’s going on with the spammers lately, but the spammers are slamming me. I probably get 25-50 a day, which is insane.

    Oh, one time one of the searches that brought someone to my blog was “monkey butt love.” Really? I don’t think I’ve ever talked about a monkey, much less butt love with a monkey.

    Anyway, I hope all gets better for you.

    • Thanks Joann.
      Yes I am suddenly being hit by about 35 a day…driving me nuts.

    • The same thing is happening to me, Granny. Instead of 5-6 SPAM messages . . . the filter is CLOGGED with them.

  12. You crack me up! And I try NOT to get sand in the cracks! 😀

  13. So sad to hear about your friend, granny.
    I’ve also been getting dozens of spam comments. Have to check them because sometimes, valid comments end up there.

  14. I hope to have lots of new photos to peruse!

  15. Granny, Wendy and you are both getting TT routinely. I agree with all your wise friends who’ve already said “take it easy on yourself, Granny.” I don’t think there’s one item on a stress test that you couldn’t tick. Well, okay, you couldn’t tick “Won The Lottery”. Phew, thank God, eh? 😀

    • You are so right Souldipper…if I won the lottery I might just head for the hills!

  16. I miss you, Granny.

    • That is so sweet Tilly…thank you.

  17. I’m so sorry about Wendy’s tumors. You’ve had enough things going on between your move, your “housemates”, and Wendy’s results to more than account for your emotional drain. I’d probably want to stay in bed with the covers over my head. I hope you did go out and get yourself a nice treat – you more than deserve it. Hope you have a lovely visit with Wendy next weekend. 🙂 We’re keeping you and her in our prayers.

    • Aw thanks RD…am looking forward to seeing her.
      Find it so wonderful that so many people are praying for her.

  18. I love that title, Granny!

  19. Took ages for me to catch up on all your posts. Love and miss you xxx

    • Lovely to see you back here Cindy…love you too girl.
