I also took shorthand classes as that is what they used  in those days, my Mum and Dad , and i should not resent them for this  as they were just people of thier time...were talking  about me one day and being a kid i listened...my dad said May , theres no point on wasting a fortune on her education shes most likely going to get married and have a kid in a couple of years of going out to work  :O :angry:


None of this what did I want ? or what was I good at , I wanted to go to Art college  , Dad said  , no thier all hippy`s , you are going to Pitmans secretarial college  in Bromley.... Dad died I never went ,and tho i got married when I was 25 or so (first time) no way was I ever gonna have kids  lmao...


I think parents should pay more attention to thier kids  abilities, I am sure a lot do , there are some realy great parents out there , a kid is a precious gift  , you have thier whole lives/future in your control  , and now i need to shut up as ive never had kids so what so i know  :undecided:


Psstt....am i still on the acid trip?

After years of  faultless service our old truck  which was a Hi-Lux pick up truck mk2  , with big wheels and a 7 inch lift all round finaly   became far too rusty to repair further.

So not being able to afford a new one and not knowing exactly what a heap of shit the 2.4 import model was ,we bought a Surf . You would think its just a Hi-Lux thats got a solid rear end ,but no...it has every sensor known to mankind and more stick on bits that are also electric than a bloody  robot  :rolleyes: More hoses than  the bloody Fire Service  :angry:

We have stripped out the air con put in a new radiator , uncountable amounts of hose , ball joints, steering arm idler joints  , the speedo has packed in but its not one sensor but 2 and which one is it? so we use a sat nav for a speedo  :(

Confuseingly we thought we had fixed the sudden and quite horrid diesel leak that occoured  tuesday...nope it gushed out this morning , doesent do it hot but does it cold , this aparently is due to veg oil being put in diesel now , it shrinks the seals in the fuel pump ...aparently a cure for it temp is to put an amount of transmission oil in the diesel  , this swells the seals back up  :huh:

I seem to remember when people made home made veggie oil diesel they had to change all thier seals , bloke over the road was doing that and every time his motor went buy it smelt like a chip shop !

Apart from the problems with getting insurance which isnt realy that bad ,if i could feed it poison mushrooms i would tho it would seem that its gonna die quite happily without my help ..

If yer ever tempted as we were by good past experiences with Toyota , let this be a warning lmao

It is as well that I do not work as i would never get there , Garry having to take my little Rav every time that big fat old bitch gets sick  :angry:

Please note this is not a rant  :cool:  Tho if it does not stop raining i might do one on the rain lmfao

I wouldnt want anyone to think i was complaining  :huh: but i do most everything that i can round the house and garden  . there are some things tho i think a man should do , one of them is fitting a new lock to a door  .

Our main back door from the house  has never realy shut as well as it could because its often open in the summer and spent many years open for the most part with a  thick slatted plastic curtain shutting out the elements as dear Pan was too fracking thick to use the dog door ,as a result the hinges have dropped and the door warped a bit.

When I pointed this out to my darling husband yesterday he answered that "well at least if it sticks totaly you can get thru the dog door"

I think most men with half a brain might realise this is not a safe statement to make to a woman  :laugh:

Today i have ...got behind the fruit cage to cut back the hedge, fallen down a bloody rat hole and  scared out the biggest rat ive ever seen , cleared away all the cut down old Norfolk greenhouse  my master has just cut down and forgotten about , rediscovered the paths i made between the veggie beds that the chickens buried in the winter ..turn um out in the garden he says , they will do it the world of good..result....buried veggie beds  destroyed plants and a nest of 24 eggs behind the frackin bamboo from a broody bad tempered good for nothing BITCH  :angry:

This of course on top of 3 loads of washing changing all the bedding hoovering dusting ..............

But i wouldnt want anyone to think i was complaining  :not speak:

Indeed yes how very true , having been married at 25  and widowed at 35 i then went back for another dose , which i think proves i am stupid   :rolleyes:


Garry looked at the botched up repair his wife had so expertly executed , it was in line with a great many botched up repairs that he had witnessed over the past 25 years , he mused on the inadequate DIY skill of women and his wife in perticular .


Why he wondered can a chap not go off to work in the safe knowledge that house repairs will be  done by a capable and efficient spouse? The quality of women was sadly lacking these days  , he felt there should be somewhere he could write to like ones MP  , but he could not quite  think of where in this  instance he should lodge his complains about his wifes short commings.


It was as well that Garry lacked both telepathy and empathy at that moment as he had not a clue to his wifes murderous thoughts when her  ingenious repair  was so scorned . She began to think about her mothers not inconsiderable skill at ill wishing , they always worked for her so why not me she thought  .


This would be so much neater and easier than an axe thru the head or a knife to the heart tho those fine Japanese steel kitchen knives did get little use.


Whilst hanging her head respectfully her mind was a whirl of plans and expectations..................
