Granny looks back

Good Morning All.
It is 4:47AM here.
Have been up for an hour.
Browsing the news.
Catching up on posts.
And, discovering something new.

I decided to unsubscribe from someone.
And, up came a list of posts I, apparently, subscribe to.
Hundreds of them.
I mean it.

Where are all those bloggers?
Some may have passed.
Some I remember well.
We had marvelous interaction.
Ten years ago.
Have they all stopped blogging?
How sad.

Saw this on Facebook.
Only in South Africa.
Made me giggle.

Didn’t post yesterday.
Did you miss me?
My Dad and brother came for lunch.
My brother had bought a whole heap of stuff to cook.
Then asked if I would do it for him.

Frozen chicken pie.
Potato wedges.
A super salad.
I had a half a glass of wine to keep my Dad company.
After they left, a nap was mandatory.


  1. Ek mis hulle ook – daardie blogvriende wat sommer net verdwyn. Slaggate wat vervang word – 😆! Hier in ons buurt is hulle besig om die strate te herstel na die baie reen van die somer.

    • I know Frannie.
      Most of them are from 10 years ago.

  2. For a moment there I thought they were going to put in new improved potholes 😂

    • Exactly what they are saying.
      Like some minister blaming Apartheid for the lack of water.
      Said they built the dams too big.
      The mind boggles.

  3. Morning, Granny, or is it afternoon where you are now? I was going to say, I beat you up this morning, but then thought better of it and that I really ought to rephrase that; otherwise, I’ll get a policeman knocking at my door! It’s okay; I haven’t lost my marbles – yet. What I meant was I beat you in getting up by one hour this morning as I was awake at 2.30am, and that was it for the night. I hate it when that happens, don’t you? Now, I’m struggling to stay awake and can’t concentrate on reading the blogs I’d planned to read. My mind is wandering all over the place.

    I’ve found similarly in the past regarding blogs I follow. It’s such a shame when you’ve struck up a good rapport with someone only to find they’ve disappeared off the face of the Earth. I’ve forgotten how I found them now. Not to worry.

    As for potholes, I don’t suppose your municipality would hop over the seas and come and mend some of the potholes in the pavements here, would they!? The ones on the road are bad enough but try driving over them in a wheelchair, and you’re taking your life into your hands. Painful too. Oh, and I did miss you yesterday. I look forward to your posts and I feel we’ve become good buddies in the short time we’ve known each other. Take care, Granny. Xx 🥰

  4. Hi Ellie.
    Read the article again.
    They say they will REPLACE all the potholes.
    With better ones?

  5. Hilarious! That’s how life works, I suppose. You look through your “files” and notice that most of what we held onto aint that relevant anymore 😉
