How can putting eye cream onto your eye be so difficult. It’s been a nightmare over the last few days. Yes a few drops have found their way somewhere near the target an boy does it sting…… However the majority have hit the floor, gone up my nose, on my face, into my hair, onto my clothes. This morning was no different. As I contorted on the floor randomly firing eye drops everywhere I heard our son say between the laughter.

“You are disproving everything about natural selection and evolution. Millions of years of evolution and the humans have come to this”

At least it took his mind off the nightmare which is school.

Teresa’s Questions:

Crushed Caramel Questions:

WHEN YOU WENT TO THE PLAY-PARK AS A CHILD, DID YOU HAVE A FAVOURITE APPARATUS? (EG THE SWINGS, SEE-SAW, SLIDES, CLIMBING FRAME)

Had to be swings which allowed us to play that fine sport – welly wanging. Suspect that has not made the Olympics yet.

IF I WERE TO SEND YOU A BOUQUET OF FLOWERS – WHAT KIND OF FLOWERS WOULD YOU LIKE TO SEE IN IT?

Would be just happy to get some flowers. So any.

WHEN YOU HAVE A COLD, HOW SO YOU TREAT IT? DO YOU DOSE YOURSELF UP WITH ITEMS YOU HAVE BOUGHT FROM THE PHARMACY OR DO YOU HAVE ANY HOME REMEDIES YOU RELY ON? IS THERE ANYTHING ELSE YOU DO TO TRY TO CHEER YOURSELF UP WHILE YOU ARE ILL?

I find being grumpy helps.

  1. How do you like your eggs in the morning? Without salmonella. Hahaha 😂 I like your sense on humour.
    I think there is something wrong with my eyes too (a bad and painful stye) I read apparatus as asparagus and I was wondering what on earth is favourite asparagus. *Facepalm* 🤦

      1. Honestly, I hate putting drops in my eyes. I never could do it. I even struggle with someone else assisting. Once something hits my eye, I jump like I have been shocked. It took me forever to learn to put in contacts. I just have this gross-out thing going on when it comes to eyes. 🙄😳🤮

      2. I stopped some time back. After about four hours, I felt like my eyes were covered in saranwrap. Ick.

        Now, I do the eyeglasses dance…the distance pair for driving & the readers for small print. My middle vision is fine. It the extremes at opposite ends I need the help with. And, I hate bifocals! They make me dizzy. 😵

  2. Great Answers.
    I’m going to answer your questions here:

    If the world needed a hero, who would you call?

    My Mum. She’s tough and scary.

    Worst movie ever seen?
    Oh so, so many. I thought Titanic was a big pile of pants.

    Have you ever been to Yorkshire?
    Yes, I have been to York a couple of times and this year I went to Whitby and Flamborough head (to see puffins) Had a great time.

    Thanks and All the best. 🙂

      1. I found it interesting for semi-historical reasons and for the action/disaster (the Irwin Allen effect). And, honestly, I don’t mind a good love story but, I can’t stand Leo DiCaprio (or his retard doppelganger, Damon). I just wanna punch him in the face. Plus, everytime I hear Dion’s theme song, I cringe…then want to hurl. 🤢🤮

        Never heard “pile of pants” before. Hysterical! 😆

        Happy chickens! 🐔🐓

  3. Great answers…really enjoyed your post!

    My superhero would be my Dadda.

    I walked out of the cinema once during a Steve Martin movie – I don’t remember the title, but it was terrible.

    I have been to Yorkshire many times…I grew up in Lancashire but hold no hard feelings! Not at all…and love Yorkshire puddings!

  4. Oh…dear GOD. You poor man. Not just the Curly Shuffle with the eye meds but…your son. You are so out-gunned. That child is literally using his inherited humor from you…against you. My sympathies.

    I will crack your last three…

    1. Superhero? Jean Grey.
    2. Worst movie? Too many to count. And, most of them are playing in the wee hours of the morning on Comet TV.
    3. Yorkshire? No. I’ve never been outside of the U.S. Yorkshire Pudding sounds tasty. I even know what Spotted Dick is thanks to Britchy! 😉
