Laughter is my disaster recovery plan and I’m sticking to it!

Dilbert by Scott AdamsDilbert by Scott Adams

There are so many tricky and difficult situations going on at the moment with people managing to get through as best they can. I too have ‘stuff’ going on but for today I am taking a break from looking at the mountain and focussing on the funny stuff that’s going on around it’s base. My little seeds do bear the odd humourous shoot!

I had a message this morning in my Inbox asking if my creativity stretched to plasterboarding a ceiling. I couldn’t take it seriously so I bantered back that I would trade a plasterboarded ceiling for a fixed widget on my web site that meant it linked to Facebook properly (he is in I.T. after all). ‘It’s a fair trade guv’ I thought but he took me seriously and has offered help which can only lead me to believe that he is desperate to get his ceiling done. Ironically I can plasterboard a ceiling, I just can’t skim it. The current state of play is widget fixing from his end and suggestions of pretty painted pictures on the bare plasterboard from mine…I’ll keep you all posted.

I am going to the wedding of good friends on Saturday and have been looking forward to it for some time. The hen party was held here but that’s another story. My friends have rallied round and I have a lovely outfit complete with strappy silver sandals…bliss. The bride also requested that we all wear hats and I have a great ‘Tally Ho’ number that wouldn’t look out of place on the set of Pride and Prejudice. Emily and I found it in a secondhand furniture warehouse of all places and with great whoops of delight tried it on there and then to the amusement of all around us. The scene is set, however, at a party last Friday we were all tattooed with henna by a very talented lady who does weddings (yes I know I get the irony of this too). I have an adorned wrist and ankle, very pretty, but rather out of place with my upmarket outfit. I have been scrubbing away to no avail and now gracefully accept that I am going to look quirky and it matters not a jot. I will never be an elegant lady who is immaculately turned out, it’s just not the me that was a tomboy in my youth.

Mountains are made from boulders and laughter blasts away boulders.

    Chuckling all over my exercise-suited out self, with little toes bursting out of the webbing on my “breathable” running shoes! No skin marking, but plenty of marks on my nose from losing a pad on my reading glasses’ nosepiece, Will that count? I can SO relate to your life these past few days! I love being quirkly myself! And I am SO jealous of the “Tally-Ho” hat!

    I love this! It’s cheered me after the dreaded “bug” – an update tells you I still have to sit up at night to alleviate coughing and I am on my way into my third week without a voice!! Good or bad? BAD, VERY BAD (for me, maybe good for some!) LOL 🙂

    Love and hugs xx

    Wedding, lovely outfit, fancy hat! Sounds great and tattoos are the top of fashion at the moment too, so a removable one sounds great in fashion when it must and deleted afterwards. Have a great time lovely Jane.
    Love and a big hug, slightly jealous Steph :mrgreen:

    PS I forgot to ask, it’s not your wedding is it? 😉

    I love to laugh (from Mary Poppins.) There is no sense in getting frustrated or mad all the time.

    EXCEPT — that Facebook thing you mentioned. Just switched to Timeline and I had to come to this blog to get a laugh.

      Hi thanks for stopping by and taking the time to comment, I appreciate it. I don’t like the Timeline and I wasn’t given a choice about having it unless I missed a ‘No’ button somewhere! It’s getting the link between my web site and fb working that is challenging me right now. Take care, Jane 😀

        I think it will be forced on us all on March 30, but I got mine up earlier.

        The sad thing is I have an IT degree.

        Good luck and thanks for the reply.

          Oh no that’s not funny…I spent nearly fifteen years in the I.T. industry and all I can say is technology moves on at lightening speed and fb and Twitter think it’s great to keep changing things..it isn’t…our message to them…stop fiddling or better still ‘if it isn’t broke then don’t fix it..’…good luck to you x
