Just being ME


Please say hello ... I love comments!

blogger, me ...

What do you do on a Saturday morning and how has it changed for you over the years? Well, in

1962, I didn't do anything as I hadn't even of been thought of;
1972, I was spending my pocket money in the local toy shop; a few years later in
1977, I was swapping things on Multi Coloured Swap Shop;
1982, I was nursing a bad head from the night before, no not through alcohol, but by returning from the nightclubs in Brighton at three in the morning; a year later
1983, I met J, so smitten was I, most Saturdays mornings were spent with him;
1986, I was shopping in Sainsburys, as this year we set up home together;
1998, I moved with J to a larger place with a garden, so I would be spending time outside, and
2007, I discovered blogging!

Saturday mornings will never be the same again! Now as soon as J sets off for work early, I jump on to the computer to check for any comments left and then try to visit everyone who have been leaving comments on both of my blogs, as you know, this can take quite a while. Anyway don't think I spend all of my time procrastinating doing this, in between I am jumping up and down, catching up with chores, supping numerous cups of tea and coffee, and water if I remember, basically trying to do everything that I haven't got around to doing in the week. I must confess though that my garden has taken a back seat, I love the outdoors and I am known to be out there in all weathers, and even though it is winter I have a long list of jobs I need to do, maybe tomorrow?

Now I really am off to wrap up some Christmas presents, I have a pretty casual attitude towards Christmas at the moment, but probably by the middle of next week, when I realise what I haven't yet done, the panic will set in!

I remember the Multicoloured swap shop! Used to love that show! Saturday morning cartoons were the best.

Hello Louise
J sounds like he has been a wonderful distraction for the last 25 years..!!

I still can't really get my head around Christmas.. I am leaving the present buying that I haven't done in the lap of the Gods.. so the gifts could be interesting.. a harp, a nice fluffy cloud, a few cherubs gift wrapped..
Oh dear I have lost the plot again..

Hi Louise,
I'm with you on the whole Christmas preparation thing, I tend to leave most things till the last possible minute. I've realised over the years that everything gets done just the same and anyway, I don't like shopping for Christmas gifts in August!!!!

Mmmm! I like your Saturday morning reminiscences! I like to plan way ahead to keep those moments of oh-no-I-have-to-go-the-store at a minimum. But sometimes it happens anyway ;-)
